monster hunter tri is deadly. you can use the wiimote to swing, but classic controller is a better setup as you change camera angles a lot, but that's just basic button combos. be warned, this game is a huge time vacuum- i'm in at over 200 hours and still have plenty left to do. online play is a real treat though, and for item hoarding, yeah lots of that. skyward sword might be better if you just don't have enough spare time.
