If you haven't played any of the series before and are curious, I suggest waiting for a new title to release than jumping into an older one.
There are few things quite as satisfying as the feeling of returning alive from an epic battle with a massive monster, of triumphing over a difficult foe and turning their talons into sweet armour. This sense of mastery, combined with the strong presentation, diverse and complex weapons and the endearing but unobtrusive story make Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate come together into one wonderful package.
Not without issues, but the best entry yet
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is a pure holistic RPG mobile experience on the 3DS
Not for everyone, but for fans of deep RPGs, Monster Hunter 4 is an excellent adventure.
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate can be the biggest and most strangely satisfying time sink you'll find for your 3DS, if you can get past its quirks.
Monster Hunt 4 Ultimate is easier to get into than its ancestors, but is just as entertaining.
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate may very well be the best Monster Hunter yet. Everything that's been done before has been polished to near perfection, the bar has been lowered to make things more accessible, and there's enough new content here to keep gamers coming back for more. There's really no excuse not to pick this one up.
While the game is perfect for me, the game is not actually perfect. There are some glaring flaws such as the aforementioned frame drops and graphical issues on the older 3DS models, but the amount of good things in this game definitely outweigh the bad ones. I've had 153 hours of fun by now, and I'm getting ready to go on a quest with some friends as I type this. If this review has interested you at all, download the demo! It's free and gives a general idea of the game.
