I have over 200 hours on this game, all because i can't put it down. the best part about it is the fact that it is compatible with 3DS. me and my friend make the best team, and just when you think you've beaten the game, more missions pop up. that is why i love this game. it is almost never ending. once you beat low rank, you go on to high rank, and then G rank which goes on for just about forever. the highest rank of G rank i've seen is 245, but it goes higher. the game will never get finished, and that is why it is the best for the wii U
the style of play is a little bit to get used to, especially with the controls. but with plenty of options for armor and weapons, this game keeps you striving for better and better. I've sunk hundreds of hours into this game online. best online game on wii u. for now.
I decided to give this a try and while I found alot of good qualities in this game I just couldn't get into it. You basically start out as a rogue hunter volunteering to help out a small tribe figure out the reason behind a mysterious series of earthquakes as well as take out a deadly sea monster disrupting fishing activities. You get to design your own hunter and start a new life hunting monsters and helping citizens. The graphics look exactly like they did on the Wii (Monster Hunter Tri) with more polygons to have a better resolution, which works at a distance but up close you can really tell that the graphics aren't truly HD. Though it is fun to hack and slash monsters, forge from their corpses, planting and growing vegetables, make friends, and complete quests both in the story and in multiplayer. It truly is a combination between hack and slash combat and virtual life. While I couldn't get into it, I did enjoy what I did experienced, and I do recommend it highly.
