  • lorelai4cuties

      TBF, RE:R was mostly corridor based at 30 FPS.

      This one’s more open and runs at at least 40 FPS (AFAIK 3DS MH3U doesn’t run 60 FPS on an average).

  • Fango

    Only mh fans will.throw a blind eye to the terrible graphics of this magnitude.

      I think 3DS owners aren’t dying for high tier mobile graphics.

      If a game looks great, that’s just a bonus to most of them.

      You’re basing your opinion off of screenshots for a handheld game? Everybody knows screenshots for a 3DS game will always look jagged, you have to play the game for yourself.

      And dismissing a game because YOU think the graphics are bad is horribly closed-minded and ignorant.

    I am not a fan of mh too much but the graphics I believe is so there is a constant 60 frames per second even with the climbing and all the monsters. I will not be getting this either way but i’d hope for a wii u version for fans like the last one who want it to look better.

  • PrinceHeir

    they really took alot of notes in terms of gameplay from Dragon’s Dogma :)

    the whole climbing mechanic and all :)

    though i’ll wait for a console version of 4G or 4 Ultimate.

    hopefully it’s on Wii U and PS3 :P

    then Monster Hunter 5 with next gen engine(phanta rei?) for PS4!!!

      It’s Panta Rhei. The best way to not forget it is that it’s rhyme with this:

    What’s with the people hating on the graphics? Who buys Nintendo consoles expecting the games to look as good as their Sony and Microsoft counterparts, and who expects a handheld console to look as good as a home one?

    Also, MH3U looks better than the trailers ever did. I don’t expect this will be how the game looks when I have it in my hands.

    this is like monster hunter freedunite, they focus more on content than graphics.
