Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Standard Edition - Nintendo 3DS

$5.77

All I can really say, all I feel obligated to say with this impressions piece, is that Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will provide an experience on the Nintendo that has otherwise been absent from the platform. It's just a ridiculously huge game, complex and of disgusting depth. I didn't even kill a monster, let alone start to think about crafting or multiplayer gameplay. Let's not even go there. The headaches are already kicking in.

Reviews

I sent you a code for the Monster Hunter 4 demo.

Facing lots of new monsters right from the off really helps the pace of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. There are very few tutorial quests, boring gathering expeditions, or fights with familiar monsters, which make it feel more exciting from the start. The story also moves at a much snappier pace, and instead of being chained to one hub-town, you move around between several places that differ significantly both in character and appearance. There's a town at the foot of a volcano, a paradise island that's home to about forty cats, and a village in the clouds. Moving around these different places helped keep me motivated.
