The problem with the demo is that it is designed for people who have already played Tri, yet they are using it to try and attract newcomers. They should have made it a demo like Etrian Odyssey 4, where it's an actual save file that can be transferred to the real game, but only goes so far... like if it had been the missions leading up to the first big monster hunt or something.

It's sort of like Diablo in super slow motion. The entire game is basically killing monsters so you can collect hundreds of miscellaneous fluids, body parts, essences, etc. You use those to make better weapons/armor so you can kill stronger monsters. Repeat for 100s of hours.

It's probably the most boring, overrated turd of a game I have ever played.

they have the PC version of Darksiders 2 running on WiiU in 1080 native at 60 fps and full graphics options on. Neither 360 or PS3 can come close

Someone clearly never liked arcade games. Because that was just doing the same thing for 100s of hours.
Besides there's more to monster hunter then that.

Right, because arcade games are about spending dozens of hours of mindless grinding in between an hour or two of actual challenge.

Monster Hunter is grind-heavy, but I would call the combat anything but mindless.

I think the best comparison for Monster Hunter is Demon's Souls. Imagine Demon's Souls, but the game is primarily focused around boss fights instead of level exploration.

Basically it's a Pokémon ripoff. When Pokémon and Digimon were popular there was also Monster Hunter. I believe there was an anime series at one point as well.

You obviously haven't played Monster Hunter for very long to understand what it is really about...
