I was new to the Monster Hunter series when i got this game. I played a tiny bit of the one on PSP but as the review stated i had no idea what to do or anything which turned me off of the game. Tri did a great job in explaining how to do everything and what all the shops, events, mechanics are and how they work. I am pretty far in the game right now and everything is great. The controls for the Wiimote and Nunchuck do feel a little awkward and they could have done a better job on the motion sensing but with the Pro controller its totally fine. A lot of people argue that they did not have a lock-on for the camera. This would ruin the game as you need to be able to maneuver yourself around several monsters. It would be extremely hard if you were locked on to one single target. Other than that I have no problems with the game. Amazing graphics, good storyline, excellent game play, and one of the best console online experiences I have ever had. Capcom pulled it off.
