i guess i'm kind of in a pickle of sorts. i love monster hunting games (get a quest, go out and kill monster(s), collect their loot/body parts to sell/upgrade equipment, etc), but for whatever reason i couldn't enjoy/get into monster hunter freedom unite on psp, which i downloaded onto my vita about a year ago. since then, i've tried to play it again multiple times, starting a new story and character but something turns me off while i'm playing.
i think the main thing is the fact that everything the character does is soo slow. in my oppinion, he runs and swings his sword two miles an hour..which makes me loose health and pass out way too quickly. for example, the last time i tried to replay the game (a while ago..) i had to fight a group of raptor-type monsters and literally they all would gang up on me and before i barely had a chance to get back up after they knocked me down, i'd be on the ground again. so i'd try running away and theyd catch up to me two seconds later cause my guy runs so slow. D:
so i don't know if it's me being dumb or what, and i know that the weight of the gear/weapon plays a role in the speed of the units actions but its just such a pain in the beginning at least. i'm in love with the god eater series and burst is one of my favorite games i've ever played. so i suppose my question is this: should i try this one for the 3ds? i know the demo will be out shortly and i'm definitely downloading it. but i was curious to see what others thought of my predicaments with this particular series. i really want to like the monster hunter series of games, so i'm hoping there is a way for me to enjoy it more than i have in the past. :)
