Monster Hunter Tri: Wii Game Review
Monster Hunter Tri is part of such a cool series we couldn't resist reviewing it! But, it is definitely not a game for kids of all ages. If you’re not at least 13 years old, then you should probably wait until you are to play this game.

First of all, Monster Hunter Tri for Wii is definitely not a game for kids of all ages. We wanted to review it because it is such a popular game, but if you’re not 13 years old, then you should probably wait until you are to play this game.

If you love fighting monsters, you’ll love this game. If combat and killing aren’t really your thing – stay far away from Monster Hunter Tri. It’s a single-player adventure, and your main playing environment is Moga Island. Basically, whenever you see a monster, you fight it (using your gigantic Great Sword). And that’s pretty much it. Think of it like Jurassic Park, only you’re there to kill every dinosaur that dares to cross your path rather than observe and study the awesome creatures.
Fighting the monster you’ll meet in Monster Hunter Tri takes a bit of time to get used to. You can swipe and roll but, at the end of the day, combat in this game is really all about endurance and doing your best to avoid being batted around like a rag doll by monsters that are much, much bigger and stronger than you are. Your goal in the game is pretty much to wait out an attack, looking for good opportunities to deliver deadly blows.
The other thing is that your weapon – a Great Sword – gets damaged very easily. It’s huge and great for blocking shots, but every time you use it, it gets a little duller. So you have to keep sword sharpeners on you at all times – and know when to use them to make sure you’re not the one that winds up dead.
