Really solid Monster Hunter game. If I was going to tell someone to go back and play an older game in the series, this is about the furthest back I would recommend.

Great roster of monsters, especially in comparison to Monster Hunter Tri. Also some great returning guys like Tigrex and Nargacuga, now with subspecies.

Game is a bit easy but it's also a lot of fun.

(beat village Zinogre, got the credits) This is the comfiest Mon Hun, mainly because it's the easiest game in the series and the old gen controls reach their apex. Basically just Tri but easier and streamlined, just like all these Portable games... 3rd gen best gen.

Monster Hunter Portable 3rd is one and if not, the greatest portable game of the MonHun franchise for the PSP. It has a lot to offer, from updated graphics and assets to better and semi-optimize hitboxes. It might be a short game with no G-Rank included, still it can go on par with the latest MH generations.

The new village 'Yukumo' is also a great addition to the series since the village itself has this warm and homely feeling to it every time I finish a quest, and the last time I felt this feeling for a village was with Pokke Village from Monster Hunter Portable 2nd or Freedom Unite. In addition, the new weapon that is part of Monster Hunter Tri which is a Switch Axe is also a great weapon and it didn't lack anything from its previous predecessor in the Tri and Tri Ultimate games.

The story is still the same old Monster Hunter formula with a new big bad flagship monster ZINOGRE and the amazing elder dragon AMATSU. This two monsters are a great addition to the MonHun's ever growing roster since I enjoyed fighting both Zinogre and Amatsu. First, Zinogre was one hell of a fight, I love every second of it, let's not also forget Zinogre's theme which still now hold its title as one of the greatest monster theme in the franchise. Next, fighting Amatsu feels like I'm fighting a god, for me I love boss battles when its 'against all odds' and yet Amatsu delivered that feeling in Portable 3rd! Lastly, the gameplay may be a little clanky and the graphics may be outdated, the game still delivers its title as the best Portable game of the monster hunter franchise.

In the end, Monster Hunter Portable 3rd is a solid PSP game and a solid Monster Hunter game, and it still has the essence of Monster Hunter.

Played very little but it's probably the best game ever or something

The birth of my favorite weapon and one of my favorite ascetics There's quite a few things I didn't like(The dango system, the lack of gathering, the lack of monsters,etc.)

La découverte du Zinogre, quel plaisir (et la découverte du hacking de console et des patch jp vers fr mais on passera ça sous silence).
