I heard great things about this game. Projared even gave it a 12/10! Because of all the great things I heard, I decided to rent it, and experience something great. However, I didn't actually enjoy this game. I'm sorry to all the fans, but I thought this game was pretty boring. Maybe it's because I went from Serious Sam, a fast paced action shooter, to this game, a slow-paced monster hunting simulator. I expected this game would be an unrealistic, fast paced monster fighting game. But instead I got a.....Simulator that wasn't very fun. Please do not think this is a bad game. I was just expecting something different than what it was, so for me, it really wasn't that good. However, I'm sure that if you are a fan or RPGs than you will love this game. I just didn't have much fun with it.
I tried to get into this game, but there's NO WAY it's happening. This is a game that you need spend 40 hours just to acquainted with the controls and system of the game. This game has basically little to no tutorial, the manual doesn't show you ANYTHING!! So you're pretty much left to discover everything on your own and are left with an EXTREMELY clunky and outdated menu system to work with.
I recommend this game to young unemployed people who have an extreme amount of time at their disposable; everyone else this game is not for you.

If your looking for an adventurous game, you might want to look somewhere else. MH3 was ported from the 3ds and you can clearly see that in the graphics department. Game looks literally horrible! I've seen some N64 games that looked better. Story is bland and you travel from monster to monster and never nothing new. No replay value whatsoever. I also have to mention the button lag. Both the analogs and buttons on the game pad and the pro controller have horrible lag. So much lag that after you stop mashing the button it will still be striking a second or two after! Say far away from this and play a real game. This was a cheap port Nintendo did in a quick attempt to feed the MH desire from Nintendo fans.
