I liked the Wii U demo. It was pretty seamless and looked/sounded pretty good.
The 3DS demo was OK, but nothing without the CPP XL. It's playable, but this game screams CPP on 3DS.
I'm only getting the Wii U version for sure.

also... i would like to add:
i couldn't care less about graphics, im not a graphic whore like others - what i care about is gameplay, and all that kind of stuff

and especially in singleplayer games (i realize MH Wii U can also be played online) the story is VERY important
i don't know if it was due to it being a demo... but there was no story whatsoever and from playing the demo... it really looks like you're just a monster hunter and that's all there is to it
i mean.. how is that supposed to get me excited? a singleplayer game with no story... that's just like a movie with no story - or is there one? i wouldn't know.

@Romeo It sounds like you want someone to convince you to pick this up when you already made up your mind! Yep no story worth mentioning its all about hunting carving improving your equipment. Having fun with others online. learning how to take down each monster. Just the awe of some of the monsters is amazing to behold. There are different lands to explore and each has its own sections. Yes you need to load each one so what. It works.

It's hard to judge this demo as it throws you into a point in the game say 10 hours in plus gives you some good armor on top of that.

There is a story but it's not very deep, it's mostly just an excuse for the gameplay. No one plays Monster Hunter for the story. And calling it a single player game is completely inaccurate, the series is built for multiplayer.

I cant decide if I will like this or not? It just seems to hardcore. I just want to pick up n play and instantly enjoy killing monsters without putting much effort into preparing. It seems this game requires a lot of boring stuff like farming materials ect.

Well it depends on what you need. Most of the materials come from monsters, but some don't so you will occasionally need to mine or gather some honey to make Mega Potions. In Tri there's a farm and it can technically allow for infinite honey, but it takes awhile to grow, so you can do 3-4 quests (online at least) without having to go gather materials.

My SD Card with the game on it is just as physical as your cartridge with the game on it.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.

@Romeo
Do you play Mario for the story? The story isn't the main focus of a lot of singleplayer games, and singleplayer isn't the main focus of Monster Hunter. A lot of monsters in Tri were multiplayer only, so singleplayer is just for those who aren't connected to the internet. I'm not getting the game over the 3DS version not having online, but it can still be enjoyed in singleplayer.

I was like you once....I could never understand the draw of this game. Then I fell upon the 3ds demo. hmmm...unforgivingly difficult,crazy controls, terrible camera, no monster health bar, anyway the list goes on. Yet, I get it, I totally get it. I was going to get the Wii u when the game launches but since the update annoucement, I think i'll wait for the off tv-play option. How many hours gameplay does the game have, or is it aka; Animal Crossing

Hundreds. At least.

It's what you want to put into it really. If all you want to do is hunt monsters then be done with it you could probably do that in about 30 or so hours offline. If you want to get the best armor and weapons add another 100 hours plus offline. If you want to lose the rest of the year of your life hop online and you might never put it down. One of the best online experiences you can find!

I must admit the online aspect sounds extremely interesting. I like the idea of the off-tv play update, so i must wait. Why oh why was it not implimented from the start?!! Capcom?!!! Explain!! Why no gamepad v U pro controller local coop? Ultimate? Rant over

PS: Still a great game

Lol at everybody not caring to explain

In short, you cannot get any feel for selecting a quest, preparing, farming, mining, material selection, combinations and item usages from this demo. You can only train with some weapons.

They seem incredibly dull on the surface, but there's some HUGE finesse to them. The slow movement, the item use that takes a while, the sharpening - everything is so precisely balanced that you cannot possibly see its depth within a short demo timespan. The game mechanic is very well thought out, where dumb blunt smash and hit play becomes perfectly timed tactical battle over time.

40+ hours will get you out of noob status, not at a finished game state. 400+ hours will get you expertise in about 4 weapons, generally. There's nothing much like it out there really...

Thanks. I was kind of on the fence about this game but wanted to like it. It sounds like it's really not for me. I don't have any video game playing friends so multi-player's basically out for me and the story element is kind of what I was asking, i.e. what's my motivation for killing these creatures? They're not attacking me, why should I want to attack them? Oh well, takes all sorts. I hope fans of the series enjoy this version and Capcom are happy with the sales.

I agree with what the other guy said but as a noob it comes down to online multiplayer, that is where the fun is. I have seen people put in 500+ hours in the game, it is really that good. My first MonHun was Tri and I fell in love immediatley, it was not hardcore at all, the multiplayer is what did it for me. The community is great and working together, communicating is so rewarding. Now that the wii U version will have voice chat, it is going to make it so much better.

What makes MonHun so good is that you are invested in your character and fighting newer, bigger and more badass monsters. The demo is like 10% of what the game is. It is hard to reccommend it because the demo doesn't sell the game and there is no story really, just fighting boss after boss after boss with people, refining your skill and character. Each monster does need you to use different tactics.

The real hardcore of the game is single player. That part is crazy.
