Is monster hunter 3 ultimate best played with the circle pad pro?

CPP isn't necessary but it should help most that are not used to panning a camera without a second pad. L for turning the camera and the pseudo lock-on, as well as the virtual d-pad also work very well at substituting the lack of a second pad.

I suppose my point is, is having a second pad worth $20 or ($40ish to import XL CPP) worth it to you? or would you rather adjust to other very acceptable methods offered in the game and save that money?

Not necessary but it helps.

Expect some getting used to the controls if you don't have one, but certainly playable without.

I just hope Nintendo brings the XL CPP soon. MH3U is my first MH game, so yeah.

Get out noob. Only veterans are allowed to play MH.

Methinks it would definitely be the preferred method. I have yet to try it because I haven't imported one but after 40+ hours of MH3U so far I still find the touchscreen dpad very clunky. Target lock on helps with that a bit I'd still much prefer a second analog as there are a couple of little annoyances the lock on causes.

I was able to play the demo fine without it, but I ended up getting it because I'm used to the Classic Controller Pro controls from the Wii version. It all depends on what you find more comfortable. Either control scheme works.

The game is good, but water combat is dodgy with the screen D-pad so i have ordered a CPPXL which should be here (weather permitting) by Wednesday :)

not really, i bought monster hunter 3g when it came out back on 2011, and been playing it in my 3ds LL with no problems, i never imported a circle pad because i always have one of those case protectors so i didnt think it was worth it, i got to HR90+ till i got bored of it, now starting all over from 0 and having fun as i play, no need for circle pad.
Screenshot it or it didnt happen.
