To start off, this game ROCKS ! As other reviewers have said, this game is not for those who don't want to put the time into it. I just stumbled across it on Game Fly and thought it looks cool and a change from what we've been playin' on the Wii. After about 2 hours of getting the basics down,I was hooked ! I played it for 2 days as a rental and purchased it from Game Fly. My son and I love it and keep leveling up to out do each other. Online play is better then any other game we have done. 99% of the players online will help you out and don't mind playing below there standards for a "newbee". We like it so much,my son showed it to 2 of his friends and they picked it up. One friend even saved his money so he could buy a router and play online with us. These kids are young 13+ years old. I have just purchased a 2nd game from Game Fly so me son and I have 2 copies and can play online with each other. this does take 2 wii's though FYI. Back to the game. If your a fan of the old Zelda games, this might just be for you. You're not fighting and looking for little hearts to finish the game. You will work, and sometimes, you will get very mad at it! But when you you have fought and lost against a monster lots of times,.....and you will. It gives you a great feeling whrn you bring it down for the first time alone! To close. I have just over 100 hurs into it,and I'm not even close to beating it ! this game is the sleeper game of western world. Not many have played it as compaired to most Wii titles. but in Japan it is Huge ! Thanks CapCon for making this for the Wii. I'm already looking and hoping for a Monster Hunter 4 !

I've been searching for another game that compares to this one. I have'nt found one. it's addicting, like a cracked head to a rock. As far as being challenging i have'nt found that to be the case. I started the game in offline mode. If I ran into a road block I'd go online and I have found that the community of fellow players is more than willing to help. This is where you can pick up some of the tricks for gaining what you desire. I have developed my player as an advanced swordsman , but if I was to start over i'd develope him as a shooter. the shooter is a more desireable player later in the game, a little tricky to handle in the beggining but with a little pratice you can master their abilities even with controller and nun-chuck.

monster hunter tri. The beginning you know, it starts out like a storyline so when you create a person man/woman you have to where women clothes like small trunks and small t-shirt. ? why i dont know. so you go through the game doing tasks,running eron's for the villagers and thats as fun as it gets until you end up in the ocean looking at a monster the villagers clearly say your not ready to fight so you choose to run/swim away or do what i did and stood up like a man and fight but the monster a.k.a (lagiacrus) has electricity power so you have to watch out for that. and there are crazy big weird monsters with goofy names you have to fight and if you kill a normal animal and carve its meat out of its body and if you choose to cook its meat so you can eat it to gain energy a grill apears out of thin air and chair so you emeadietly start cooking animal meat and a annoying song plays and basicly when the song stops the food is ready but sometimes that might not always happen. and you can even go fishing on this monster hunter tri video game. p.s. which takes forever to do and the bugs on this game are huge, house cats try to steal your food and materials (yes house cats i know). and when you raise money you can get out of those girly clothes and buy manlyier clothes and you can have weapons but only one weapon. so when you choose a weapon you choose from daggers,small swords, big swords, lances a.k.a spears, o and bowguns. and you can make your weapons and armor more powerful by talking to the blacksmith. and you can even go to a farm and make a friendly cat farm for you as you put in requests for him. and you get a pet pig. did i menchean online mode beacuse online mode could be more fun if you have the wii speak microphone a.k.a i dont besides i had to go into battle all by myself p.s. you'll have much much more fun online than offline. and this dosn't even sit right with me but sometimes when you hit an enemy with your sword you bounce off of the monster (my head i
