Extreme Hunting!

Review: Monster Hunter Tri (Wii Retail) Mh310

Gameplay and Story:

Moga Village is in danger of sinking to the bottom of the ocean! Only a hunter with your level of skills can defeat the monster responsible and save Moga village from certain doom!

This game is split into three modes and each mode is unique! But first you must create a profile and start the one player village mode. Upon saving you can start the other two modes. This is the first game in the series to feature underwater hunting which makes the game quite a bit harder than the older games in the series.

One-player village mode
This is the games story mode and though it is guild based it does have a better and more detailed story than many RPGs. The main story is long and hard and will likely take 100+ hours to beat all of the missions and get all of the equipment availible in this mode!

Arena mode
In this mode one to two players can play together on the same console fighting monsters in an arena. They can choose between three different pre-determined sets of equipment to use in the arena! This mode also features a land arena and an underwater arena that will test your hunting skills! If you win the fight quick enough you can earn items that can't be obtained in village quests!

Online City Mode
In this mode players from all over the continent enter cities and post quests for up to three other people to join. They then hunt together to take down beasts you normally would have trouble besting on your own!

Surprisingly this game has an online keyboard allowing people to freely communicate as well as a regular friend list request system as opposed to the bothersome Nintendo friend codes which makes this game a perfect online title for making new friends. This game also uses a hunter rank system that determines which quests you can post or join as well as a general idea of how skilled you or other players are!

Online mode also features an online arena that allows you to win items that can't be obtained in Arena Mode! This mode have many Monsters, hunting grounds and obtainable equipment not found in the single player mode. Expect to spend over 500 hours on the online mode if you want to get all of the equipment and online titles.

The only problem I have with the online setup is that North American, European and Asian gamers can't play together as those 3 continents have their own closed servers.

Graphics and Sounds
The graphics in this game are unmatched as the character and monster models are realistic and have fluid animations as well as hunting grounds that have the most detailed and realistic textures and animations you will ever see in a Wii game!

This game has awesome sound effects such as growls, ferocious roars from monsters, erupting volcanoes and blowing wind in the hunting grounds. The music is absolutely awesome especially the cool underwater "Jaws" theme chime that plays when spotted by certain monsters!

Bottom line: This is one of the best online experiences you'll find for the Wii and it will take hundreds of hours to do everything in this game. This game has the best graphics you'll ever see on the Wii, as well as awesome music and sound effects! At around $30-$40 U.S. Dollars it is an awesome game for any action-rpg/mmorpg fan.

10- Perfect This game is nearly perfect, and has little if any flaws, and is a blast to play!

This sounds like a superb mmo one question though how many people still actually play on the online servers?
on October 17th 2011, 8:01 pmKingreX32
On any given day you can find at least 300 people in one server. And there are. Four.

I might have to pick this up soon after I finish Skyward Sword but that may be awhile. If Last Story is localized in NA by that time then I might not, because it's my first priority to play that.

This is a great game with surprising good online gameplay for a Wii game Smile

The online community is getting bad.
The experts refuse to help noobs for the most part, but I did meet a clan named Canard that is dedicated to helping noobs.
Their leader Haseo is nice.

This review needs to be formatted as well. Wink

There aren't many Wii games with such a good online community.

Monster Hunter Tri is too addictive.
I must have spent over 2,000 hours playing the game by now.

This game needs to be reviewed again now that there is no online mode available. Sad
