  • Summary: The hunt-or-be-hunted adventure continues with more content and options than ever before. Monster Hunter Freedom 2 builds on Monster Hunter2 (Dos) for the PS2 (previously released in Japan only) and contains 50% more content than the original Monster Hunter Freedom. In this unique action-adventure game, gamers increase their play skills as they battle through breath-taking environments while defeating bloodthirsty creatures. As mighty hunters, players can face a variety of quests alone, but the true spirit of the game comes from playing with others. Multiplayer cooperative battles for up to four friends via wireless ad hoc mode foster team building and strategy for the ultimate battle of man vs. beast. Players can fully customize their characters, building up their abilities with armor and weaponry as they make their way through hundreds of quests. With the addition of infrastructure functionality, players will now be able to download even more content and quests. [Capcom] Expand

  1. Unless you're reading something between the lines that was consciously unintentional, you will undoubtedly conclude that I love this game. If you want to love this game as well, all you got to do is get your hands on a copy. It's that simple.

    The learning curve in the beginning will keep the riff-raff away, but those who stick around will find hundreds of quests, items to combine and a serious upgrade game sure to keep them -- and their ad-hoc friends -- entertained for a ton of hours.
  3. If you own a PSP and want a challenging game, an action game that makes you think, or want to try something new, pick this up. If you only want casual handheld-friendly titles, avoid it. Actually, try it anyway. You may like it.
  4. 70
    It's not impossible to learn the button layout, and the camera gets a little less broken with practice. Exploring the vast world of Monster Hunter is a lot of fun, and there are so many well thought-out systems that it seems like there's always something new to discover or create.
  5. Persistent players will find it to be one of the best multiplayer experiences on PSP. [Dec 2007, p.95]
  6. It almost feels a little too familiar for its own good.
  7. The latest entry in Capcom's ambitious role-playing series sets out to hunt monsters, but only manages to shoot itself in the foot.

    "wow. the ignorance of American game reviewers truly astounds me." ChrisBB makes a statement that the American reviewers are quick to dismiss Japanese titles. Let's face it BB Japan has been in a creative slump for years and the other countries are the only developers willing to try (or take a risk) on something new. All I have seen from Japan are the same spreadsheet style rpg games, the fighting games (like Street Fighter) and a collage of the same dating-esque sim style games. Which they have been releasing for over twenty years. Monster hunter is good but it really doesn't hold up to the originality of many other titles being released. Did you really think a game where you kill dinosaurs hasn't been done before? Seriously, take a look at some of the independent titles being released by Japan vs other developers, you got Minecraft on one side and the same old JRPG title on the other. Western people need to stop over-glorifying these profit orientated dip **** They suck the life out of the industry. Expand

    The only thing I like about this game is its variety of different kinds of monsters and animals. However, with the lack of autolock and the camera control I've ever seen, this game is just a pain in the ass to play. Expand
