Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate features a huge world for you and your friends to explore. From rolling fields of green grass where Herbivores graze, to fiery volcanoes where fierce creatures await their next meal, within each environment you'll find creatures to hunt. But be careful - some will be waiting to hunt you!
In each area you'll need the correct equipment to deal with the sometimes harsh conditions. In volcanoes you'll need cooling drinks so that you don't overheat, but on the icy mountain tops you'll need to carry heating drinks so you don't freeze. Make sure you carry enough.
As you explore the massive world of Monster Hunter, you'll soon discover the importance of searching your environments carefully. You'll find flowers to pick, rivers to fish in and ore to mine so that you can create potions and create and upgrade equipment and armour. then of course there are the Monsters themselves, once slain you can carve them up and use they hide, bones or meat to improve equipment you create.
When venturing out alone you'll be accompanied by your furry friends Cha Cha and Kayamba, who'll help you tackle the beasts that you confront and find much needed items to complete quests.
If you don't want to face the world of Monster Hunter alone, you can recruit your friends into joining you hunting party. You and three friends can wander the land taking on monsters of vast size that roam the land, swim the seas and patrol the skies. A well-trained team will be able to tackle anything that tries to make you it's next meal.
Collaborate and communicate via text using the Wii U Gamepad touchscreen or USB Keyboard. Or for those that want to sound the war cry, you can also use the built in Mic on the Game Pad to chat your friends.
And for those with friends who have a 3DS they too can join you via local WiFi play making Monster Hunter the first 3DS/Wii U crossover game! You can even transfer your save data to your 3DS so you can continue the hunt wherever you are!

For anyone who's played a Monster Hunter game before, you'll know there isn't much of a story behind it all. Across all games released so far the story consists of a few tutorials and then you're told to just go and kill big, angry things. Similar to Monster Hunter Tri, you begin the solo game as a new monster hunter. You arrive in a village that is being struck by strange earthquakes and, as a monster hunter, it's your job to discover what's causing these quakes and, ultimately, stop it. As far as story details go, that's it. After that, it's getting a few mediocre, perhaps even tedious quests out of the way before you've given access to some of the bigger, badder monsters.
Whilst this game is essentially an update of Monster Hunter Tri that was released on the Wii around three years ago, CAPCOM have done a good job ensuring that the game looks and plays really well. Making good use of the Wii U's graphics, monsters look as realistic as they ever have, monster animations are really smooth and fluid and your hunter moves, attacks and reacts in a much better way overall. Players who experienced the Wii version will definitely notice how much more vibrant the colours are and how the monsters look.Read more ›
Hunting is what you're here for, but that's not all this game has to offer. To improve your equipment and keep plenty of supplies, you're going to need materials, and Monster Hunter has always had an abundant of ways to get these vital materials, but never has it been so convenient here. Farming, sending ships out to distant shores, preparing meals, gathering quests, all help get materials, which in turn allow you to upgrade the literally hundreds of totally unique weapons and armors.
This game has a steep learning curve, all to do about learning what you need to stay alive to fight a monster, mastery of your weapon and learning to predict monster attacks by subtle movements. So, if you are in a volcano zone, you'll need cold drinks to stay alive long enough to even find the monster. When you do, what if they have poisonous attacks? You need antidotes then. But a limited travelling inventory means planning ahead is vital for success. As for mastery of a weapon, knowing what attacks can be easily chained together for big damage, how long they take and when you can block or roll out of danger are a must to survive any encounter, but to know when to block means you have to know which attack is coming.Read more ›
The graphics have been brought upto date,they arnt amazing in comparison to other current gen games,but compared to MHT on the wii they are a major improvement
They are a few changes for instance the online quests can be done offline as well,and you download event quests and can keep doing them whenever you want, rather than the quests changing every few weeks.
There are a few new areas and monsters,though most of the monsters are just slightly modified versions of older ones,for instance the Wroggi are poisonous versions of the Jaggi,but it does make the game more interesting.
Overall the game is just a polished version of TRI,but that isnt a bad thing,the controls are near perfect and the monsters are challenging without becoming impossible,though its likely you will find one or two that are a major problem for you,normally dependent on the weapon you use,I prefer the lance and gunlance so anything that can get behind me quick or has an unblockable attack are a pain,but you just have to find you own tactics to beat them.
This game is the reason I bought a Wii U, and with the 100s of hours im going to be playing it over the next few months its money well spent.
