Tri a bit harder and you get the Ultimate


When some people convinced me to buy Monster Hunter Tri for the Wii, I never envisaged myself sinking several hundred hours into that single game; nor did I know that it would encourage me to buy its future expanded version Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, bringing that time spent up to about a thousand hours between them! I even bought it as a bundle with the Wii U, such was my eagerness to jump back into the hunt. Yet it's not surprising when a Monster Hunter title is far more than the sum of its name, involving massive amounts of grinding and collecting for starters. This title is certainly a ...

For every new player in the world of Monster Hunter, it's a challenge to overcome the tough learning curve but once you get past it it's a game that will never bore you and there's always something to do. The Gamepad of the WiiU makes it really easy and easie...
