Product Description

Monster Hunter Tri allows Western Wii owners to join the hunt for the first time, as one of Capcom’s leading franchises makes its debut on the system.

Monster Hunter Tri depicts a living, breathing ecosystem where man co-exists with the fantastic beasts that roam both the dry land and the brand new sub-aqua environment - a first for the series.

With an expansive story mode, Monster Hunter Tri sees players taking on the role of a hunter, who is tasked by the Village Chief to investigate the constant earthquakes that threaten the everyday life of Moga village. Players will hunt monsters that range from small annoyances to towering terrors in a bid to restore peace and tranquility.

A bustling and vibrant town, Moga is home to the hunter and includes a Blacksmith for forging weapons and armor, a shop where items can be purchased and an expanded farm with cat-like Felynes acting as laborers and tending the crops.

The incentive to complete quests is now no longer limited to the collection of items and money with which the hunter can create or upgrade armor and weapons. Successful hunts have a real and visible impact on the status of Moga Village as on returning home quest items are used to repair damage caused by the earthquakes resulting in happier and more active villagers.

Living the life of a hunter need never be a solitary experience with the option of split-screen mode where two players can hunt co-operatively on select quests or form a team of up to four hunters via the game’s custom online Wi-Fi mode. Even solo players do not have to face Monster Hunter Tri’s challenging quests alone as they will be accompanied by Cha-Cha, an AI computer driven hunting partner whose skills will prove invaluable.

Complementing the new creatures and quests that Monster Hunter Tri introduces to the series, hunters will also have the benefit of new weapons, armor sets and items. These include an all new weapon class, the Switch Axe and a Torch that not only illuminates the darkest caves but will fend off certain creatures to assist them as they embark on the most epic Monster Hunter adventure to date.

I have been lucky enough to have been playing an advance copy of this for about two weeks now. So first things first...

BE WARNED! This is NOT a pick up and play game.

Much of the Wii's success has been based on the availability of games which are family based, or easy to pick up and play in short doses, you know what I mean? Sure there are some exceptions, but to my knowledge there have not been any exceptions such as this. This is a BIG game, demands exceptional time spent on it, exceptional patience and nerves of steel! I strongly recommend you get the classic controller version (if you don't already have one) as that does make the fighting experience that wee bit easier. And it's the battles that will pin you to this game. They are huge and difficult and you will fail and you will scream with frustration and you will go back and try just that once more it is that addictive. You want to BEAT those beasts good and proper and when you eventually do win you wipe the sweat from your brow and feel kinda good. There are no energy bars or the like, you have to look for clues in the beasts' condition to work out how close to victory you may be.

That's the best bit.

Now for the "Marmite" bit. Everyone will love the battles but the RPG elements will either be loved or hated. They are a large part of this game, both in one player mode and more so in multiplayer online. You can't run out and partake in epic battles until you've put in a lot of time elsewhere, mining, bug-catching or hunting smaller monsters for the materials to make better equipment or sell for money. Any significant hunt is preceded by sometimes hours of preparation.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best hard Wii game you'll play 23 April 2010
By Evowyl
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Monster hunter is a huge success in japan and its easy to see why. The game is fast paced, fun, addictive and very very hard. It is effectively a game comprised completely of boss fights. Each monster you hunt has its own particular quirks which you must learn to survive and one mistake can mean the difference between victory and defeat.

Gameplay 10/10
The game is all about survival, Outside of hunting you will be mining, gathering herbs and bugs and crafting items for use in the hunt. After each fight you can carve parts off the dead monster for use in making armor and weaponry to give you more defense and attack power. However this means nothing if you do not know what to do against a particular boss. Most of your early attempts at fighting said bosses will result in you dying but each time you learn a little bit more of when to dodge, block and attack. Even when you get used to their basic moves they throw in a berserk mode every now and again so you have to be extremely quick on your toes. Eventually the satisfaction of beating the monster is very rewarding. After the boss is down you go on to the next big nasty. The variety of weaponry available is jaw dropping to say the least everything from lances and sword and shield, to the new slash axe which is amazing fun to say the least. Controls are easy to master and intuitive, however i would advise starting the game using a great sword if you are unfamiliar with the series, as they have a much shallower learning curve than the other weapons.

Graphics 9/10
The games graphics are amazing for a Wii game. As someone who owns all 3 next gen consoles it is obvious how the Wii's hardware is miles behind the others however capcom have excelled themselves in making a top quality graphical project for the Wii.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've never played a role-playing game before, so I was worried I might not enjoy this game. How wrong I was proved once I played it for several hours! I've been converted to the role-playing genre from playing this game.

The hub world in the game is Moga village, which has been attacked by a monster. You arrive in the village, and are immediatley hired to track down the Lagiacrus that destroyed the village (final monster in the game). In moga village you are able to forge and upgrade weapons and armour, buy and sell items at the market place, farm vegetables to recover health, go to your bed (which automatically saves the game), and finally sign up for quests at the Hunter's Guild.

The game comprises completing hunting quests, which are given to you by the 'hunting guild'. There are main quests, and sub-quests. If you complete all the sub quests first, then the main quest you get maximum reward (money, items etc). Some main and sub-quests require you to obtain an item, like a monster's horn. You then place the items in a red box, and when all the items are in the box you complete that quest/sub quest. Before you embark on a quest, you may have to forage in Moga Woods for items, such as bugs, herbs and so on. In one quest, you are required to stun a 'deer-like' animal, which requires combining a bomb casing with a flash bug, to give you a flash bomb. After each quest, you can 'level-up', which means you can forge new weapons and armour if you have the raw materials (taken from monster kills) and money. You can also upgrade your weapons and armour, which is sometimes better than forging new weapons and armour. There is an arena mode which allows you to practice slaying monsters before you go into combat for real, always good to be prepared!
