4.5 SUperb, but its on the Wii SolarNova | 12/01/2012 | See all SolarNova's reviews (19) Having played the PSP versions of the monster hunter series i have always loved just how long this came can last even though being a relativly simple game in terms of what it is.In simplified terms the point of the game is to max out your armor and weapons by beating up monsters. But...This game requirs skill, real skill, not stats. Dodging, blocking, counters, everything that you may have seen to be 'automatic' in alot of other games, is 'manual' in this games series.Becouse of this, how 'good' this game is to people is generaly dictated by their compitance as a gamer. You wont like this game if you consider games like Aion, Rift, and the majority of Wii games to be 'hard' or 'challenging'.So 'buy this game for a long lifed challenging game' is the best advice i can give.Downsides.Well to put it bluntly its major flaw is the consol it has been released on. The Wii is just to weak a consol to fully alow people to appreciate the game in terms of its graphical apeal. Which i asure you can be much much better.Just port this game to your PC and run it on Dolphin (emulator) and you will see how good the game looks (for an emulated Wii game, remember textures will still look blocky) in 1920 x 1080 HD with internal resolutions of up to 2560 x 2112 and 9x SSAA. (this will mean ofc, no online, which tbh is a big part of the game)The ability to use the Wii's motion controls to play the game just dosn't work well considering how precise and well timed alot of fights requir you to be (you can still use classic gamepad ofc). There for it would have been alot better to put this on a consol designed to be played using a classic gamepad and have the ability to show much better graphics and have more content, which imo is somthing the Wii version lacks slightly(though not enough to make a fuss about).Having said all that..Im not a 'graphics nerd', as like i said, i played the monster hunter series on the PSP which has no AA or AF to speak of and tbh is rather blocky, but the game makes up for this, as it does on the Wii, its just somthing that could have and should have been addresed.
