645 hours into mh3U on the 3DS and still not tired of it lol.

If I ever got my money's worth out if a game, it'd be out of MH3U.

It plays pretty much exactly the same as on the Wii U. The graphics are great. Almost as good as the Wii U version. I definitely recommend this game, especially if you're a Dark Souls/Demon Souls fan. Monster Hunter is the reason I picked up on Demon Souls those years ago lol. Also I would recommend getting the 3DS version seeing as how MH4U will be hitting the shelves early next year.

You can solo the entire game. Some later Guild quest will be harder to solo though. Or atleast take longer than with a group of fellow hunters.
Man I get respect from the players you look up to, plus nobody loves you, so even when I die if you stand on my grave ima still be above you~!

You can solo the entire game, I have and am at G rank.

I have close to 700 hours logged in, well worth the money.

thanks everyone for the responses. pretty sure im gonna pick it up. just gonna decide on what platform.
wii u does have online multiplayer (and since i dont know anyone around me with a 3ds it will be my only chance to co op)
and better graphics/bigger screen
but is also cost a couple hundred more.

3ds is cheaper and has other games i would like to play.
but the small screen and no real multiplayer almost puts me off.

1st world problems......
