Monster Hunter Freedom 2
Great game overall. I must say this is a must buy for anyone who owns a PSP and has a love for RPG's. Graphics of course are not as good as they could be, but since it is a portable gaming device, it has good graphics. For some that say there is no story line I call blasphemy, the story line is just not very evident. Of course from its predecessor, Monster Hunter for the PS2 with the dual Analog fighting, this had great dynamics with controls with the use of only one analog stick. I have spent almost 20 hours into this game and still have not done all that I wanted. For those that want replay-ability, just go co-op and have fun with friends or people you just met online. I have recommended this game to many of my friends with PSP's and they love this game. So for those who aren't sure, rent it anywhere you can find it and see the fun that it is.
The best RPG for PSP
First off, this game is SWEET. But it's hard. Don't let anyone tell you it's easy. It had amazing graphics for psp. I originally played the first MH on PS2 and it was impossible unless you played online. But this one is a lot easier on solo play. Plus you can get with your friends and play Ad Hoc, or download content using infrastructure.There are a lot of weapons to choose from, and a lot of armor to make. Basically, you make weapons and armor, hunt down monsters, and then have a delicious meal cooked by your Felyne slaves, which are also on your farm. The best part is the freedom. If you turn on background loading, it makes the loading times shorter, but sucks the life out of your battery. that is the only downside to the game, I think. I have 50+ hours on it already and I still haven't finished the 4-star village quests!(it goes from 1 star to 5 star village quests, plus even more in the gathering hall.) If you like RPG's, then this is definitely your game, and it's a reasonable price considering the length.
Don't listen to the critics. This game ROCKS!!!
This game has amazing graphics, the environments are very real making fighting in them a phenomenal experience. The list of creatures is long and range from wooly-mammoth-like animals to fat pink gorillas to giant flying fire dragons. The list of equipment is even longer allowing endless combinations of armor and weapons. And oh, the weapons. Alright, do you want gunner or blademaster? If you are blademaster you can have either a great sword, long sword, sword, dual blades, hammer, hunting horn,or lance. If you are gunner you can have either a bow, gunlance, light bowgun, or heavy bowgun. It's all up to you, do you want one weapon, or all of them? With two long lists of exciting quests you can have fun by yourself. But the game really begins when you join up with other players, you can have up to four at a time. One on the ground slicing the monster with a long sword, one smashing it with a massive hammer, and the others on a ledge safely shooting away with a bow and a gun, that's one possibility, what will you do? The game is endless never for one second losing it's excitement.

One of the greatest psp titles ever
This game is a must buy! I have spent hundreds of hours playing and still have plenty to do. The length of the game is amazing, I know people who have spent thousands of hours playing and still have not done everything. I love it becasue it is one of the few psp ction games that isn't a button masher. The challenge is great. It can be VERY hard at times but it keeps the game interesting. Controls are ok. They did a great job for a psp but controls for some weapons could be better. Graphics are amazing for the psp. Capcom did a great job with that. Interface is nice, but could use a little work. It can get a little bit frustrating at times but it doesn't really distract from the gameplay. Length is great. As i have said before you ca play for thousands of hours and still have alot to do. Sound is ok. Great for a psp, but still could have been slightly better. The soun will sometimes hiccup but it is very rare. But one of the few bad things is the story line...or lack there of. There isn't a story at all. You play, but there isn't any plot and no characters. But over all I think this is a must buy for any psp owner into an action game.
Meh its ok
It's an a really good game. although you attack slowly and the camera motion is a little awkward (at least for me it is). The scenery is breathtaking weather it's looking through vast desert and or standing at the edge of a mountain. the creature however just look like copies of each other just in different colors. overall i find Monster Hunter 2 an awesome and pretty addicting game. i would give it a thumb up.
Really Good but...
I personally liked the gameplay. The controls are great and the many options to customize your character are awesome. There are many different types of armor and weapons which is a major plus. There really isn't much of a story but that isn't the point of this game. The only reason I wouldn't recommend this game is because of the ridiculously long loading times. You have to wait a very long time when navigating from map to map and that completely killed the whole gaming experience. During the missions you are forced to navigate through many different maps (I was up to 8 when I quit) and the fact that you have to wait so long make missions boring. Sometimes you end up spending more time waiting for the game to load than playing the game itself. I would only recommend this game if you are a very patient person. I would prefer to play this game on a console that would drastically cut loading times.
TOTALLY WORTH YOUR MONEY!!!!!!!
This game is insanely good i've had it for a since November 2007 and still haven't beat it. True I haven't played it all day every day. And no I don't stink. It is just that challenging ask anybody. It is incredibly fun and addicting. And fighting things that are 4 times your size with huge awesome swords, guns, bow & arrows, daggers axes, hammers and anything else you can think of. This game is truly worth your money and time. You start off as an inexperienced hunter trying to find a village that needs protecting from dangerous monsters. Then the more you play the more quests and weapons you get. The sounds of the monsters, Dragons, giant apes, huge crabs, is just amazing. The sound of your gun firing and your sword slicing and dicing beasts is so realic it will make you want to go hunt more just to hear it. The monsters look soooooooo cool it's so amazing it is impossible to describe you have to see it yourself. It is an over all an amazing game and I highly recommend it to anyone who like swords, blades, hunting monsters, killing and other things like that. THANK YOU FOR READING!!!
The game was a little too repetitive for me, same fighting style every time I kill a monster. Anyways lets get this review going. Challenge was there, it was hard at the beginning which is fun when you have a challenge. The challenge soon died out and it was almost impossible not to lose. I have to hand it to you though, the graphics were just wowing. You could see every grass grain, wheat, mud, clear skies and clouds. The storyline was...well I don't really know, they never explained it in the game. Controls are easy to learn which makes the game a little bit more fun when you get the hang of it. The controls were just pretty basic. Sounds were okay I guess, they were good with weapon noises and walking. I probably did not like this game because I was expecting an RPG and this is NOT a RPG. I would not recommend this because of the repetitiveness.
Monster Hunter Freedom 2- "GET IT NOW"
If you look at the screen shots of this game, the graphics don't look so good. But if you actuall try this game, the graphics are clean and detailed. The length of this game... well there really is none. You could beat this game, but it dosen't end. You can go on quests and hunt with your friends, and thounsands of ways of custumizing your character. Now for the storyline: this is an RPG. So far the story goes, you go on quests, you create your own story. So I can't give you an accurate judgement for storyline, but I gave 7 out of 10 however. Later you go on and even in the beginning it may get challenging, but if you are an RPG player, you should like the adventure. This game has variety of items, armors, and even monsters. This is like RPG on computer, but better because it's portable. If you want some adventure during the summer, I definitely recommand this game.
