Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is the biggest game of the series so far, letting you adventure with up to three friends through over 500 hours of gameplay. In MHFU you can battle previously unseen monsters in new environments, not to mention the many new weapons and armor sets available.

  1. The graphics are utterly gorgeous, and the soundtrack is a wistful selection of haunting folk music. In a lot of ways, this game conjures up nostalgia for a time that never was; but this matters not. This is a game that single-handedly moves PSPs in Japan. Now we can see why. [Aug 2009, p.76]
  2. We will just say that we can't stop playing it until dawn, even having to go to the office the next morning. That's how great this game is.
  3. It's incredibly addictive. A great upgrade for Freedom 2 and one of the best PSP games today.
  4. Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is a quality product. It offers a thorough and interesting gameplay - albeit not so various - thanks to a considerable amount of collectibles and monsters. It does have some minor glitches here and there, but technically speaking it is worth the money. It also boasts an excellent co-op mode worth hours of shared fun.
  5. Despite the cooperative mode for four players, just the main mode alone offers hundreds of hours of longevity.
  6. It's the best Monster Hunter game yet. [Sept 2009, p.81]

    There are over 400 missions, which is insanely impressive and the depth of the weapon and armor customization is ridiculously. But in the end, all that content feels kind of wasted due to the horrible camera and lackluster combat.

    Awesome game. A must have game for the PSP system. Amazing graphics and very fun gameplay. A very challenging game but very fun. If you own a psp and don't have this game get this game Expand

    Ludicrously addictive grinding game, particularly over multiplayer. Essentially a collection of really interesting boss battles. Gathering items for your armour and weapons becomes almost a full time job. If you want to blow your free time then buy this game. Expand

    Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is part of the 'Monster Hunter' series where you take on the role of a hunter of one of two Archetypes, Hunter or Gunner. In your quest, you are tasked with both defeating hulking beasts and collecting resources to be used for doing so. Monster Hunter has deep game-play and the weapon you choose greatly effects how things will play out. Each weapon totally changes how the game plays and what you will need to take with you. This game may have a steep learning curve, but as soon as you overcome the difficulty, you will find this game to be both an excellent purchase and a heap of fun. This game is widely based around co-op (See 'Unite' in title) and becomes a lot more fun if you played with 1-3 friends, The solo play is very fun, but the game truly shines in co-op. Expand

    Definitely an expansive game: A huge range of foes to face, which you can either face alone, with a feline companion, or with three of your friends. Marvellous graphics for a PSP game at its time, and a memorable soundtrack. You can spend well over 300 hours on this game, and still have quests to complete, which makes it one of the most successful series of game for the PSP. If you are looking for a game for your PSP, this is the one you should get. Expand

    sort of hard for a casual gamer to pick up and play. a hardcore gamer shouldn't have any trouble beating it.
    the monster quests are a little
    repetitive at times, and you will have to repeat certain quests to get farther in the game. the combat is really action packed and fun, and the monsters are ridiculously challenging sometimes.the feeling you get after killing a hard monster is like nothing in any other game i have played.

    This is a great game to experience for the psp, it's highly addicting. It's a very long game game to complete, and it fun playing it with friends with up to 4 in a quest. Their are a huge selection of weapons to choose from, same goes for the gear. I highly enjoy this game only issue is the repetitiveness, like after a mission you may get in this routine of going to your farm, then your house to eat, then back into another quest, other then that the combat is rewarding even when you get to see (also in color or size) and face a new monster. Personal story: I got very far in the game, but when It was lost/stolen I simply just refused to repurchase because I would get bored of starting over. Other then that it's still a fun game to get even during this day, I havn't tried any others, but this is an awesome game to go handheld with friends. Expand
