[Review] Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
Huge weapon choices
So many monsters, so little time
So little time
Well here it is, the promised review for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate.
For those that are unfamiliar with the game, Monster Hunter is a game where you, to put it simply, hunt monsters. You play as a hunter and you hunt different kinds of game, ranging from giant bugs to fire breathing dragons. You get materials every time you successfully hunt your prey, either by killing it or capturing it. The materials are used to make better armors as well as upgrading your weapon.
Of course you don’t hunt monsters with your bare hands. Having access to a whopping fourteen types of weapons, players could choose a weapon type that is more suitable for themselves. Don’t get me started on upgrading the weapons. You think fourteen weapon types is a lot, wait till you see their weapon tree. There’s like a million weapons under a weapon type that has different sharpness, damage, shooting power, elemental damage, gem slot, looks… you get the drill.
MH4U is one of those games that will leave you grinding for hours upon hours just to get your desired materials. With the game being released in the 3DS, players could now hunt online as well as locally with friends and family members. Trust me on this, hunting together when friends is immense fun, especially when you’re hunting a big game.
The plot of the game seems to be overshadowed by the game play, but interesting all the same. I would tell you the whole plot right here but I wouldn’t wanna spoil you.
Trust me the game is totally worth the money, heck the reason why this review is so overdue is because I’ve been playing it non-stop and couldn’t find time to write this thing. Even my friends are wondering where have I been all these while… well friends that didn’t own the game that is.
