Personally this game wasn't much fun for me. The graphics didn't help (I can overlook it)..but I just couldn't get used to the attacking controls. For me, Infinity Blade was much more fun and the combat was more satisfying. To me, the main advantage of Monster Hunter is you can walk around the monster instead of being stuck in front of it.
At 0.99, its cheap to try..but if it was me, I wouldn't have bought this. There are others who had fun with this..
As an aside..I don't know why I get tempted by these Capcom games. I bought this, Resident Evil 4 and Devil May Cry 4 on the iOS..and the one I like the most was RE4 (aside from the escort missions). DMC4 was fun, but its a solid 6-7 out of 10 for me.
