- Summary: Monster Hunter Tri sets a new bar in the action/adventure genre with the introduction of new features and game play elements as the multi-million unit selling franchise makes its debut on the Wii system. Monster Hunter Tri depicts a living, breathing ecosystem where man co-exists with fantastic beasts that roam both the land and the sea.

10This is easily one of the top 5 games on the Wii ever. The Wii doesn't have many games that have a level of depth to them that will keep you playing over the long haul. Most Wii games you play and once you finish it, you'll put it on a shelf to collect dust. Not Monster Hunter Tri. This game is addicting in the way that MMO's are addicting. They keep you playing through a necessity to get better gear and fight bigger monsters. You'll play this game for hours on end.
The community is awesome and online play is where it is at. Making friends online is super easy and playing with others in a group makes the game so much more dynamic which just further increases the games longevity. Playing online like Monster Hunter Tri is what Nintendo needs to take note of and implement it like this in future games.
The graphics are top notch and are probably the best you'll see for the Wii.
Gameplay is terrific and the controls are good if you use a Classic controller. Maneuevering the camera is made easy with the analog stick.
This game has a ton of items to collect and one of the problems with these types of games is that inventory can become a nightmare. I've played a ton of MMOs and that is almost always a problem to the point where it stops me from picking up items because I just don't want to deal with it. But, I must say the inventory management in Monster Hunter Tri is one of the easiest systems to manage compared to just about any other game on any other system. It is that easy. Items are easily sorted, automatically selected, easy to bundle, etc. It is all there and can be done with just a few button pushes.
Monster Hunter Tri will probably remain one of my favorite Wii games ever.… Expand
10There are times when games surpasses art, and this game is not the exception, have you seen citizen kane? its a piece of garbage compared to Monster Hunter tri. Lets face it, why is citizen kane so good? because its on black and white? well monster hunter tri comes in color, but you also have the option to change your tv settings to make it black and white if you wanted, so even if you are a whore of movies, you will enjoy this game like the master piece it is. Have you read a book named Quixote, its a piece of garbage at one side of Monster Hunter Tri, now lets develop a deep analisys on it, why is the Quixote so good? because its a joke about book of that time made with a dense use of words. Well this game let other games on any console look like a joke, and it sure got tons of words, so many words that sometimes you will not even want to read, its so detailed, so exciting, so complex, that sometimes you believe you are out of this world. Some people says videogames are as much art as movies, those people are idiots, videogames are better than movies, Videogames can express art in another dimension, and monster hunter tri expands that dimension to the point of let you even wonder what a hunter is, what a monster is, it makes you forget you are playing, it instead makes you feel you are really chasing monsters and risking your life, you can cry with this game like with no other, heavy rain? its crap, you dont even move, in monster hunter tri you got a nice story and you also move. Uncharted 2? its so linear, its like a game on trails with shooting, it gots no strategy, no tactics, barely all the puzzles are gone, in Monster Hunter Tri all the game is a puzzle about how to hunt the monsters, and it lets you wonder things that nobody can answer yet, what is better a powerful armor? or a cool looking armor? if you want to find out the answer, you have to buy it, and play it. You will see then, you are before a real piece of art.… Expand
8This is probably the best Wii game out there. The story is great, the gameplay is insanely fun, the graphics are probably the best you can get on the Wii and are pretty great, and the multiplayer is working and quite fun. Now, there are problems with every game. After a while, the singleplayer becomes impossible to beat without going to multiplayer and farming items with help. In multiplayer, it is pretty hard to communicate without the voice thing, but it makes it easier with a wireless keyboard. Much of the game kinda feels limited, like there isn't as much RPG as there should be. Now, I understand that it isn't an RPG, but it feels like it is sometimes, only lacking some great features. And most of the armor sets look awkward on male characters. But the weapons look so cool and fancy. Overall, it's a good game. And it's a good game if you are maybe 7 or older. And people in multiplayer aren't as bad as you'd imagine. They're pretty good people.… Expand
