I think MH4U will be a great game. People like you who review this probably haven't played like most of us MH fans do. We play from 500 -4000 hours. We're not PROS just Veterans

Yeah I agree with Monster King. It's pretty easy for us who loves this game. The only hard part is gathering resources lol

For sure, guys. It's hard to get a grasp of the game in just 20-minutes, but it's certainly shaping up to be special.

Starting with guns in MH? That is diving into the deepest end. Please save yourself some pain and start with a melee weapon. Guns have a whole other level of complexity to them through resource and range management.

Better news though, the full release will have online play so you can get help straight from the faithful.

Xeros the Slayer Haha, you're not the first to have told me that. Definitely going with a sword or that new bug-weapon when I get the full game.

Especially with how it gained even more versatility in 4. It has a charged attack (Back+A) that can be combo'd from anything and creates an infinite combo, it can leap up inclines using the X+A attack, and it has two different jump attacks going down; one that gets more distance using X+A to launch and the other using B for greater height but only one attack.

As always, you can use items while it's unsheathed too.

It also got a pretty substantial buff due to 4th gen being rebalanced to give every weapon class relative strength so people of equal ability with weapon classes will get roughly the same times.

Fun Fact: Only two people have killed Gore Magala in the demo, both were S&S users.

Yeah Rory my man using the bows/bowguns is a bit of an advanced tactic man. Should definitely work your way to them via melee. Hunting Horns were brutal to master or even use effectively solo for me way back when which it would have helped a bit if I had used hammers before.

You lasted 20 minutes though so GG.

More on what's in the article itself. Part of what you said is why I think the series is so strong as a portable, as handheld gaming systems get libraries that are increasingly simplified for the sake of being done in quick, consecutive consumption Monster Hunter stays pretty true to its PS2 roots of being a strong, unique action rpg.

Not that Monster Hunter isn't capable of that, it's got a bit of an entry barrier but high level play is typically clearing quests in under ten minutes. It has benefited from some gimmes though, particularly the soft lock-on and FINALLY removing the fixed vertical camera angles in favor of a more free moving one.

Note that I'm basing this on 4 as well as some localization team info - For returning fans, they cut down the overly long tutorials of the third generation titles. When you boot up your character for the first time you're given a movement and camera tutorial on a sand ship heading into town. At the end of that sequence you take up your series standard gather and combine quest, but unlike 3 and 3U where you're then placed on a two hour tutorial quest sequence with individual missions for gathering, combining, cooking, mining, and fishing, you instead get that one quest and that is the end of it aside from optional quests to explore fur

Hey, at least you walked away _more_ interested in the game, thats more than you could say about a lot of newcomers. "ridiculously huge game, complex and of disgusting depth" isn't how most people would describe it either.

All I want is this series back on the PS3 and PS4.

Is that too much to ask for?

It's a shame you can't really make a good demo for mh it just doesn't work, not without having to give a tutorial for the demo (and that would make things worse).

But it would have it's appeal, for people who want that challenge and want to get good at a skill based game the demo might do it's job.
