  1. The lack of online in the first MHF was bad; in a sequel it's unforgiveable. [Oct 2007, p.103]
  2. 60
    It's just familiar content. The developers clearly played it safe with Freedom 2, all too eager to stay on target when they should have been aiming higher.
  3. 60
    If you loved the first Monster Hunter Freedom game or its PS2 counterpart, you're going to love this.
  4. 59
    Being unable to turn during a combo is mentally upsetting. [Issue#157, p.92]
  5. The investment necessary to figure the game out and enjoy the rich rewards of hunting is huge.
  6. You'll want badly to love it, but only a select few will be able to forgive the flaws.
  7. A by-the-numbers expansion of an underwhelming role-playing mechanic, Monster Hunter Freedom 2 unfortunately has little new and worthwhile to check out beyond an impressive visual presentation.
  8. The latest entry in Capcom's ambitious role-playing series sets out to hunt monsters, but only manages to shoot itself in the foot.

    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. Full Review »

    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!
