    I played my first ever mh game on the psp it was monster hunter freedom unite but I absolutely despised it because it was too difficult and confusing plus it never ENDS

    Anyways I am interested in playing with the mhp3 and it looks great plus lots of people are saying that it is the best mh game to play for beginners to the series like myself

    What are your opinions

    I personally like mhp3rd alot more than FU. I'd give it a shot, though some of your complaints are kind of a staple of the series.

    I like Freedom Unite, but I haven't played 3rd much to be perfectly honest - perhaps I would if it was fully in English.

    If you are a beginner to the series, I'd recommend Tri-Ultimate for Wii-U. It has the best learning curve and online play. Not sure about the 3DS one.

    MHFU has the "unfixed" hitboxes for a lot of the monsters, so you'll probably get killed a lot. However, I personally feel that this game is more fun to solo than P3rd. I have over 1000 hours in this one.

    MHP3rd fixed some of the hitboxes so monsters are more fair, and there is an English patch for it. You can play with others via X-Link Kai. I don't know if people still do though. I haven't played for years. I have around 300 hours for this one.

    I still recommend the newer ones since they have online play. I'm not sure if you can still play Tri on Wii since Nintendo killed the servers.

    If you only have a PSP, go with P3rd because it's prettier.

    I'm well-aware of it, but when I finished my PSP adventure it was grossly incomplete - all that was translated were the menu options and weapon names. ;)

    I play MH since the first one that was horribly hard and repetitive (5 runs to get... MACHALITES? SERIOUSLY?!). I finished this and MHDos in offline mode and when I saw a friend holding a PSP playing MHP3rd I knew I should join. Later another friend would show up with your newly purchased original copy and all volumes of MH Orage!!!

    MHP3rd is superior in virtually everything, but it's less challenging and has much less content than MHFU which is basically a compilation of all the previous games (aka the first 2 generations). Capcom still abusing it, the last time I saw MHFU was being released for iOS. (Die Vita, die.)

    Tbh I think I just played MHFU because the multiplayer, since on the PS2 me and my friends were playing separately...

    Nope, but its highly playable.
    Story translated,items translated,monsters etc.
    Only thing that isn't translated is the Hunter Books on the Bookshelf and NPCs in town.
    But the ones for upgrade,weapon and item shop are translated.

    you will be fine. The only things not translated are just some random npcs that dont do anything and such.

    the point of 6.0 is to fully translate the remaining texts that are still in Japanese just to make the game look 100% english.


    MHP3rd actually has no story to follow... if there is or any, it is something that won't affect your gameplay... all and everything is based on request... kill this and kill that.....

    anyway... about this topic about MHP3rd and MHFU... if you're just starting to hunt.... start with MHP3rd, it's very friendly to beginners... and if you're feeling confident and feeling experienced already, then that is the time you tackle MHFU.... for me, i think MHFU is the hardest not because it is the best literally, to be straight, IT"S THE WORST that is why it is the hardest. and that is why people like that game because it challenges you too much... it is like also a HANDICAP match if you're hunting a G RANK monster alone .....very fulfilling in the end though...

    a painful truth about monster hunter haters....they just seem not to get the awesomeness and the challenge this game brings.....
