I am an avid Monster Hunter fan, as I love the series with a passion. I recently stumbled upon this game in the Nintendo 3DS store, where I downloaded the demo and played it for about 9 hours. It was fun, so I bought the game. It started out fun and interesting - you can steal monster eggs and hatch them to raise as your own army of monsters; it was almost a Pokemon version of Monster Hunter. Well, eventually it got old, between stealing eggs only to receive the same monsters over and over, and then when I get a seemingly good monster, I then have to spend a lot of time to grind out experience for it to even make it usable on my team. I found I was stuck with the same monsters for a long time, and it grew dull. Also, the armor crafting is SUPER simplified, as well as the fighting. Like I said, this game is GREAT for children, but not very stimulating for adults or true Monster Hunter fans. The graphics are adorable and charming, and those alone have kept me playing the game as long as I have. The story-line is okay, but nothing to write home about. If I was to give this game a score out of 100, I would say about a 75/100. But, please, don't let me deter you from purchasing this game. It is fun, just far too casual for me. If you're a fan of more low intensity games or are/have a child that likes things of this nature, I would rate this game a 9/10.
