  • 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.

    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.

    This is one of the very few games i can keep coming back to without it getting boring, not only because it always presents a challenge but also the sheer size of it!

    I had the original MH on PS2 and thought it was pretty good, but was never able to play online, and its nowhere near as big so i stopped playing it, but when my bro got a PSP and MH2 for his birthday, from just 5 mins of playing i knew this was something special, and bought a PSP just for this game!

    This game is absolutely amazing. Great graphics, fun gameplay, and tons of stuff to do! It's like a deeper single-player PSO experience and that is an absolutely wonderful thing. I'll be playing this for a good long while. Expand

    My PSP is my favorite material possession and Monster Hunter is 90% of the why. Both the first and the second have so much to offer, you could easily be 1000 hours into the game and still find most enemies a challenge at times. Take 10 or so hours to get the hang of the game, think outside the box, and you are in for the greatest moments you will ever have playing a game. Expand

    Something else from Bob N. Prime example: Most critics seem to enjoy the mindless and child-like camera system in Resistance for the PSP. It might as well play the damn game for you for how helpful it is. I hate Resistance. It is mindless and insulting in its simplicity. This game, faults and all, is the antidote for the Resistance Retributions of the PSP, those games which look great but in the end are music videos with no long-term value. Go buy this game if you want a challenge that is actually rewarding. And JHChrist is it long. 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
