by FlyingOstrich99 THIS GAME IS AWESOME!!!
The game Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is a very fun game. With its amazing graphics, and its intense gameplay, this game is great. I'm new to the monster hunter series and his is my first monster hunter game, but I am hooked to this game. You start in Moga Village, a small sea town, and you are their new monster hunter. You have a choice of 12 weapon to hunt giant monsters with, including duel blades(my favorite), blowguns, bows, great swords, long swords, etc. There is a guild that provides quests for your hunter. Some are to deliver item that you find, others are to slay a monster or monsters, and the last type is to capture a monster. The multiplayer in this game is amazing. even though you can't do online multiplayer, you can play with your friends near or far. Once again, this game is amazing and I would recommend it for anyone who has already played monster hunter games, or people who are interested in it.

READ ME!!! READ ME!!! READ ME!!! I have been a long lasting fan of the franchise since the second game for the playstation 2. And I have been for one reason: these games are awesome. They mah not have the best graphics but this game is perhaps the most addicting long lasting game ever.This game is by far the best monster hunter game, no the best japanese rpg that I and many of my friends have ever played. It really doesnt matter which system you play 3 ultimate on because they are both filled with the same pure awesomeness. And trust me when I say this game is awesome because I have played many many many many games for every single system. im not the best at writing reviews but I hope I have still convinced you to buy it. If this review has nit convinced you to buy this game than I have failed my duty as a human being and my shame will overwhelm and eventually kill me for dissapointing you fellow gamers. READ ME!!! READ ME !!!!! READ MEEEEEE!!!!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Giganano Tons of content
The game has easily over 200 hours of gameplay, with countless armor and weapon choices, amazing quests in both single-player and co-op mode, and a fighting style that sucks you in. The art in the game is fantastic, with a variety of creative monsters, and armor/weapons that are based off of each monster. The game requires farming for items if you want to get the top armor, but the game makes trying to get the items fun. I frequently go back and fight a monster for the pure joy of it. There is also an area outside of quests in which you can go to fight monsters that stay in the area for resource points, for materials, of for fun, and as you get further, the monsters/items in the area differ and expand. The game is near flawless on it's own, but if you play co-op with your friend(s), it becomes flawless. If you can, stick with the 3DS version, it is perfect for on the go playing. if not, then the Wii U version is still awesome.

I didn't like it because you have to go around killing animals for no reason and to me that's very boring plus I couldn't play with my foster brothers on the over the internet.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Cleats A Challenge Of Greatness!
I've put about 110 hours into the game, and I'm still not in G-rank quest! The game itself is a blast, and doesn't get boring for a long time! The multi-player is a blast, and the story mode you added for multiplayer was awesome! Solo was really fun too, with a humorous, heart warming adventure! The new monsters were a blast to battle, and fighting monsters for armor was fun. Although it kinda got boring fighting the same monster for a weapon, I wish you woulda have two different monsters to kill for this certain weapon/armor piece. So, it's a blast and recommend to the gamers would like challenges. This game is pretty intense, and not for those casual gamers. I'd give it a 9.5 (which is rounded to 10, that's why I put ten for this review), because getting a certain weapon got boring, and having no online was just sad 3;<. I hope you enjoyed! God bless!
Rated 7 out of 10 by JimD Too hard for new Monster Hunter players
Overall, I found this game very hard to play. I'm an experienced adult RPG gamer, but I found this game quite difficult. There's quite a bit of "twitch" play required to be successful. Also, weapon selection can have long-term impact on your ability to reach higher levels of the game (i.e. the double swords are fun to use, but may limit your ability to advance to higher levels).
The game assumes that you've played other Monster Hunter titles. There's very limited documentation on how to set traps or perform other functions in the game. The instructions in the box were worthless.
Also, the game is too "busy"... between village tasks, farm and fishing upkeep, arena fights and other quests that you can do to advance, I was dizzy with what to do next. Also, the weapon and armor upgrade information was very poorly explained in the instructions (not at all?) and the player was just left to figure it out.
The game was beautiful to play and the fights and such were fun, but overall, the total game experience was poor.
I ended up trading the game in about 2 months after I got it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Paradox333 Just my overall thaughts
First off i have to say that Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is one of the best games i have ever played. The amount of monsters to kill, things to collect, and weapons and armor to craft is what makes this game so great. From any monster that you kill you are able to carve rewards from them which are used to craft things like weapons, armor, potions, and other items. the sounds and graphics make you feel truly immersed into the battle and make you never want to put it down. the only problem that i see with the game is that it is hard for beginners to get into it because if you don't know the strategy of dodging and knowing the boss monsters attacks, it can be very challenging. I am proud to say that this game deserves a high 9 out of ten and i strongly recommend this to anyone how can play it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Ryuk0 Great Monster Hunter game
A really nice game to play on the 3DS. Only problems I have is that the camera controls are hard to use (specially when swimming under water) and that there isn't no online mode. There are 2 ways to play online but it requires you to have a WiiU in order to do so (buy the WiiU version and transfer data or by a WiiU lan adapter and then have to do some other things that I can't remember). With those two things aside the game is great. The game can last 50 hours+ of game play time.
One thing I recommend before you buy this game is to look up tutorials of people playing this game and see if you'd be interested. Not many people like this game because of how hard it can get at times and that the game may get confusing ( at least with most of my friends). Happy Hunting!
Rated 8 out of 10 by Wolfmoon Good but...
I have been a fan of the series since the very first one on PS2, the game is great, BUT... Capcom still hasn't figured out that MH is best played ONLINE with other people... i guess they expect us to have buddies that want to huddle around giggling and having MH sleepovers... idk. But this has gone on since the first MH on PSP! People have been forced to get wifimax to play online. It's not a difficult concept, more people = bigger monsters and better challenges/rewards! Other than that it's a great game, the graphics are decent for a hand held system and there is a lot to do. Sadly this is going to be my last MH portable purchase if Capcom can't give us some servers to play on!
