Monster Hunter 3 - BAD GAME!!

As I read in most other comments, this game starts "slow." I could not tolerate how slow it started. After I burned up 4-5 hours figuring out how it's poorly designed controls and windows 95 style map, inventory, and gameplay worked, I realized Monster Hunter 3 had not much more to offer than most of the early 90's 3-D games [referring to the appearance as well as gameplay] that I have experienced. I swear, I was expecting a half-decent 2010 new style shooter (and I am pretty easy to please), and I got a lackluster, win 95 sleeping pill. For the price of games these days - this does not pass!
Additional shortcomings: Bad button scheme cannot be stressed enough - maybe I have been spoiled by other games, but the way this was setup was really illogical. The cataloging of animals MIGHT have been fun if not for the lousy interface. You have to reverse your control thinking each time you go from the village spots to the hunting spots. Messed up [annoying is another way to put it!] The way the pointer, monster cataloging, and inventory works is terrible. Whatever potential the gameplay had is shot down by the bad controls, pathetic storyline, & idiotic character development.
The main character design choices are awful too!! Specifically, he gets to wear skin tight shorts "with" or "without" fringes - totally "inappropriate" for a hunter. This also goes for all of the characters you interact with: terrible dialog, trying to make humorous references, with excessive, confusing pointless banter. Many of the characters are promoting the "alternative lifestyle" (yes, I picked that up within the first 5 minutes, Capcom!!) Verified by other comments, there were additional levels, quests, items, goals, ranks, upgrades, etc that I might have achieved if I had stayed with it. Why bother!?!

This was just a plain terrible game. Bad controls and terrible combat. Not fun and a waste of time.
