ONE OF THE BEST
This game is amazing! Imagine you trying to help and save your village when millions of monsters try to kill you. As you can imagine the challenge can be hard in some situations. The controls are strange but okay. A down side is the online play stoped Dec 31 2007 and that is pretty bad saying you can only get some quests,armor,weapons,and items online. The graphics are great for ps2. The sound is amazing from wayverns roaring to music in the back ground it sounds great. The weapons and armor parts are one of the best parts, finding the materials can be a pain but usualy dont seem challenging. There are tons of monsters roaming around ranging from the size of a cat to as big as a house. In some situations it can be hard to find a weak point or trying not to be killed. Some monsters are extremely hard like Diablos a giant horned dragon that is super fast, can swim in sand, strong moves, and tons of life. All and all I would recommend this game to almost every body.
One of the best
Monster Hunter is one of the best games I have played and os one of my favorites.It can be a challenge at times so you need to come up with a strategy for each mission.The controls are very good except when you put it down for a while and go back to it, it takes a while to get the controls back in your head.The graphics are better than I expected it to be.At times it is very hard to look up and down especially when in a very hard hunting battle.The game has many missions to earn money and stuff that you can carve of of the creatures you defeat, you can then use that stuff to make weapons, armor, and useful items.You can hear the monsters eating and screaming at a pace that would be heard in real life,(matters on how big the enemy is).I suggest this game to people whe love dinos, dragons, and hunting.
the best hunting game ever
This game was the best of its kind. It has so many possibilities for character customization, you can make weapons, armor, guns, etc. and that's why you kill large monsters to get better weapons, to become the the best hunter in the village and town. Online is the best part (when it was still online) you got to hunt with a 4 man team and go ravage the land for treasure and your prey. All in all I would recommend this game to any one who wants to kill very large dragons/wyverns. That's the best part of the game; you get to kill beasts 20 times your size with a giant sword you make by killing other monsters. But you can also make short swords, dual swords, lances, (I think they're the best weapon in the game) and bow guns that fire explosive rounds. It is a blast to kill dragons with stuff you make. Have fun hunting and GOOD LUCK with your gaming experience.
One of my very favorite games
I love this game. I lost my old copy, ended up with the newest edition for the DS and I still want to play the old edition. The game play is smoother, the options are wider. Its just a lot of fun. Its challenging enough to keep me interested, but no so overly challenging that I lose interest.
