Monster Hunter Tri
Monster Hunter Tri is a long awaited game from Capcom. Its an action RPG game, with online multiplayer function (so cool).
This game's previous series were not released in Europe and US. Capcom is too busy conquering their market in Japan, until the third instalment only they realised that they should make it available in Europe and US.
I am a fan of action RPG. So I am pretty sure that any game in this genre is likely to be compared to Diablo franchise by Blizzard Entertainment. I just can't wait to play this game again this weekend!
Unlike other action RPGs, Monster Hunter Tri does not uses XP points for upgrading their characters. The characters are upgraded based on their weapons and armours.
These armours and weapons can be upgraded using the things character salvaged after killing a monster, or by digging from a mine inside the environment.
Each monster has their own strong and weak points, and by experience, you will and should know how the monster will attack you. It's all about attacking and evading the monsters... If you're fighting a bigger monster, you ought to go to other part of the map and replenish yourself.
After surfin' Youtube, I found that there are a lot of combinations that one could make to their weapons and armours. You can even decorate your weapons and armours, making your character unique from others.
There lots of weapon types to choose from, there are Sword and Shield, Switch Axe, Great Sword, Long Sword, Lance, Hammer, & Bowguns. I just can't wait to get my hands on the Switch Axe! and Bowgun! I'm currently using a small sword/dagger... Yes... a long long loooong way to go.
All and all, even though I am relatively new to the game, I would say that Monster Hunter Tri is the best action RPG to date that you can get on Nintendo Wii system.
