Too much deja vu makes this an expansion pack!

I'm a Monster Hunter fan and I really wish I could've given this a better rating, but...

MH3U is just too much like MH3. There's barely anything True and New enough to make any statement worthy of wowing gamers. It's basically a polished-up version of MH3--not really a good game debut on a console, let alone on a new console.

The only difference is a few other weapons, more armor, more monsters, and more battlefields, all in HD. That's nice and all, but it's nothing innovative for a new MH game. If repetition tickles your fancy, more power to you (boy does that sound fun). But I'm not interested in leveling up all over again just to get a few more of everything. Compared to its prequel, there's nothing "truly innovative" to the gameplay or experience...nope, not even up for argument, sorry. If the other fans weren't so biased/brainwashed by the franchise like a COD or Halo fan, they'd ultimately agree on this point.

With this being supposedly the best game for the Wii U, as reviewers keep on saying, then sales projections of the console are going to continue to struggle indefinitely! Come on, guys...

Definitely not for everybody

It appears that this game has an absolute ton of depth, but it is lacking in tutorial and early game.

I simply don't have the patience to give this game the time to show me everything it can do when the beginning is so boring and complicated.

This game is a more complete version of Monster hunter tri! monster hunter games seem to go in circles.. First they give you the intro version of the game then they give you the complete version several years later..
Monster hunter (Ps2)- completed with Monster hunter freedom(PSP)
Monster hunter freedom 2(PSP)- Monster hunter Freedom unite(PSP)
Monster Hunter Tri(Wii)- Monster Hunter 3 ultimate(Wii-U)..
Nothing wrong with it; except for the fact that it is ANNOYING!!!!
In any event, I am glad they have a more full array of weapons to choose from this time around! I keep getting a rather annoying feeling which bugs me(Very few RPGs for the Wii-U)... Wii-U hasn't had many RPGs as yet, and I hope they expand there RPG selection, so they can compete.. I am sure we just need to be patient here folks.. It bothers me that this game is the only RPG as of this writing of this review... This IS a good game to be certain... Worth a rent, at least! Well, try before you buy in any event!
