Frist Monster hunter I played was monster Hunter Tri as soon as got outside the village and saw the blue sea with such great graphics I know I needed to play more. When I heard about Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate was coming out was overjoyed. This game had even better graphics then Tri and combat to match. Sorry if you want navi from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time to help you every step of the way be this game for hardcore players so please do not whine about how hard is it if you say that go rent Dark Souls and see which is harder. For people how want a real challenge then this is game for you ( It is Not Dark Souls Hard). This game allows to kill anything that crosses your path. It has a lot to fight with a lot of monsters that so big that the crush with their foot and keep walking and to match these monsters you have a huge arsenal of weaponry to fight them with form huge swords to bows and guns and a lot more. Multiplayer game is great giving you a chance to really shine with your friends. All around I love this game the one problem is little to no story but with this game you will not even care.

Yes, self. Yes it is.
Now, if you don't have endless time(like me), this might not be the most fun game to play.
It requires a lot of investment into it to get anywhere.
So, this is(definitely)not for casual gamers.
Also, if your looking for story(of any sorts), it's not here(at least I thought so).
ALSO, to those people complaining about it being hard; it's SUPPOSED to be hard.
That's the fun of it.
Now, Monster Hunter is pretty simple(at least the basic concept).
You create a bro or brodette(?), craft weapons and armor, and fight monsters.
The whole point of the game is crafting armor so you can fight a monster to get HIS armor to fight a harder monster, etc.
So, basically, endless grinding. (To sum it all up.)
So, if you like(or love, or beyond, like me)grinding, then this game is your(second)significant other.
If you don't, then, well, there's other fish in the sea. (Or in Monster Hunter's case, sharqs.)
There's a few problems though, like:
1. Every time you leave a city you create, everyone else gets disconnected.
2. Harder to check where you get materials from.
Other than these, this game is like chocolate with bacon. (Which is good, just so you know.)
So, all in all, I think this game is one of the greatest things to happen to the world, because it fits into my genre of stuff.
But, if you don't like grinding, talking to people, beating up monsters, or spending 3 hours on with decorations you want in your armor, then, I suggest looking elsewhere.
