Can the Wii breathe new life into the Hunt?
30 hours for single-player? I don't know about that honestly...:/ but I guess we shall see tomorrow. Either I agree other developers should look into how the online portion has been done, as well as the depth of the game [game-play, visuals, etc.] All in all great game for the Wii and pretty good score :]. Nicely done Capcom.
A great deal of it is padded with grinding/farming so yeah 30 hours of gameplay minimum is very realistic.
Though that is still game play and it's been in all of the Monster Hunters. Especially with low drop rates [example Rathalos Ruby was 1% or so back in the PSP version.] making the game a bit longer especially for those who want 'everything'
cant freaken wait!
I guess they should've sticked to the PSP.
How is an 8.4 an ouch? An 8.4 is pretty great if you ask me.
For comparison's sake, this is what Gametrailers rated the PSP Monster Hunters. Monster Hunter Freedom Unite- 8.1 Monster Hunter Freedom 2- 7.6 Monster Hunter Freedom- 4.8
Notice how the score increases as the series gains popularity. Wonder if they ever reveiewed the original MH on the PS2. All games are basically the same, which is why there is no reason to hate any sequel unless you just don't like MH at all.
"Wonder if they ever reveiewed the original MH on the PS2." They didn't, although the long and short of the Freedom Review was 'It should have stayed on the PS2'.
The W!!'s Graphics are just as good as the 360 if not better for some games, & this game proves it. ...sorry THE TRUTH HURTS
Looks like I might be dusting off my Wii. I love the MH franchise.
This is one of the games in the Wii that is to die for.
One of the few games the Wii has that interests me.
With pro joypad....but this still should have been a PS3 game. Just imagine if it were...
Yea it would of een amazing, if you remember this was suppose to be on the PS3 exclusivly. that is until Capcom changed their minds to put it on the Wii. Well I hope they change their minds to making one exclusive to the PS3, making it a multiplateform game might hold it back.
It was going to be on the PS3 but Nintendo probably gave Capcom money to put it on the Wii exclusively. You know, something Microsoft and Sony is known for but more so Microsoft.
actually Capcom made the move because of 2 reasons: 1) at the time the Wii outnumbered the ps3 2) but the biggest reason is cost development. Monster Hunter Tri on wii would cost less to make and reach more people thats why they made the switch.
@ tunaks1: That's what they said but behind closed doors I wouldn't doubt Nintendo handed some money over to bring to the Wii exclusively. Stuff like this is common in the video game industry. If they so believed what they said then how come they are not bringing SS4, Lost Planet, RE5 etc. to the Wii?
"Stuff like this is common in the video game industry." Nintendo's practices have never exactly been what you'd call 'common'. Particularly in regards to third parties. On the rare occassions where they actually do reach those kinds of agreements with third parties, their spokespeople trumpet it from the mountaintops.
It's a mix of both, Capcom was worried about budget because console Monster Hunter's lose one of the main draws for the Japanese market and that means less people will buy it and it takes a lot of sales to justify an AAA PS3 budget. Nintendo saw that they could get a sweet exclusive so promised to help with the western release. Think of all the advertising for Tri. That's mostly Nintendo.
Found out my bro preordered the game and it came today, he got the PS3 like controller with it too! Way better than the original Wii motion controller.
this is revenge for FFVII. it was supposed to be N64, and now its on PS1. This time Nintendo did it and got what was supposed to be on PS3. These guys stay at each other's necks
