So being a fan of the PS2 and PSP versions, it was natural I'd get into this one. I just didn't know how the Wii motion controls would work. I mean, in theory it sounds awesome. You swing a giant Cloud type sword around killing dinosaur/dragon type hybrids (lot's of awesome new monsters). Well, I'm loving the game so far! I love the new swimming/fighting under water mechanic! Obviously the gatherer, forger elements are still there, too. Basically, cool in a box. Whatever, I like this kinda stuff. There's a multiplayer so if anyone wants to get on and hunt some monsters with me...

 

I ain't holdin' my breath, though.

 

If this doesn't get ya, nothing will.

I've been holding off on Tri because of the inevitable Portable 3rd, and I really don't want to buy a Classic Controller in addition to the game proper. Plus I'd have to hack my Wii more....

 

Still. I keep considering it. Oh, to have a heavy bowgun again....

Here's my history of Monster Hunter. I picked up the first one way back in the day for the PS2 (?) and played it for a few hours, determined the controls were clunky, and they game as a whole blew. Recently my co-worker came to work with two copies of MH Freedom 2 for the PSP because he wanted something we could play on our lunchbreaks. Reluctantly I said yes and now about 40 hours into the game I am loving it.

 

I'm not sure what it is about the game that caught me the second time around but I will say that TRI looks pretty fun and i'd like to give it a shot.

Dude, you don't even need the Classic! I thought so, too, but the Wiimote/nunchuck combo works great! I've really taken to it quick. It actually feels better! Get it! Let's team-up!

This game is SO addicting! I thought the same way with the first one, but I stuck with it and look at me now! Tri is the best of the bunch... trust me!

Bah! I like the new controls! 15 minutes and I was back in the saddle again. Trust me... the only reason I waited this long to play it was cause I wanted to get the Classic Control first. Finally, I was like whatever I'll get it and fuck around til next paycheck or something and now I' thinkin' I don't even NEED it! Go ahead, give it a 'tri'... you know you wanna.

Start from scratch like me! I had some crazy insect armor in the first one (that I can't remember right now) that I loved (wouldn't even upgrade cause it looked so cool). It's been years since I've played and I'm treating this one like new. Love my Great Swords!

I stuck with the sword and shield for the guild resource missions because I had no money, but I found that my accuracy with the weapon was atrocious, and I accidentally would tilt the wiimote one way or another or accidentally do a swing attack when I didn't mean to. I bought a medium bowgun when I could, which mostly moved like a heavy bowgun, and those controls have been better, but it's still so different from the PSP (not to mention it's been a while) so even if I didn't die armorless against the Jaggi I at least went through the full compliment of first aid meds.

I bought the full leather armor set and just upgraded it a bit. As for the weapon I went with the Great Bone Blade and upgraded that as far as I could. It looks pretty awesome now, but I'm looking to upgrade an Iron Sword. I've been without the game for a week now cause the dog ate the nunchuck. Now that I know that you've got it I'm getting a new one.
