For a Great Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Review, Visit Nintendo Insider
Monster Hunter remains one of Japan’s most popular video game franchises of all time. And while it enjoys a fiercely loyal cult following in the US, it just isn’t the blockbuster series it is in the Land of the Rising Sun.
But maybe that will change if Capcom keeps delivering top-tier gems that steal the hearts of critics and role-playing fans alike. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate releases this month exclusively for Nintendo 3DS and reviewers everywhere are praising the game for returning to the franchise’s roots and fixing previous issues. There are lots of reviews out there, too, so it was difficult choosing just one to honor.
We eventually settled on the great analysis from Nintendo Insider. Critic Alex Seedhouse pens a well-written, in-depth evaluation that just about any RPG lover will enjoy. Even if you’re not familiar with the series, you’ll still appreciate this review, which is crucial. If more gamers are to appreciate this series, we need to make our reviews that much more accessible, yes? But at the same time, Seedhouse keeps the hardcore fans engaged with exhibited expertise.
Why We Like It:
— Successfully caters to die-hard series followers and newcomers alike. This isn’t easy to do; it’s a matter of satisfying the detail-oriented hardcore and the novices in one review.
— Blends a bit of franchise history with a proper analysis of the product in question. Some critics spend too long on either; this appears to be quite well balanced.
— It’s difficult to dive into the nuts and bolts of a complex game without boring the reader. In this case, the critic is able to deliver all the necessary factoids while still keeping the reader entertained.
