    Combined with clunky controls and a bad camera, Monster Hunter Freedom winds up about as appealing as a pile of the Wolfman's droppings. [Jun 2006, p.119]
  2. Monster Hunter: Freedom tries to capture the odd, free-form gameplay that made its console counterpart so quirky, but its load problems, aggravating combat, lame AI and lack of online play dulls its blade immeasurably.

    Monster Hunter is one of the rare gems in gaming that only comes out once every so often. It's a shame that the series wasn't fully realizedMonster Hunter is one of the rare gems in gaming that only comes out once every so often. It's a shame that the series wasn't fully realized here in the West. This game delivers in spades for fans of collecting, upgrading, and epic beast slaying. This game is not a hack and slash at all and is debatable whether or not it is even an RPG since there are no base attributes to the character. Success and power are accumulated through materialism and violence. Collecting items from the world and beasts around you is how you ultimately craft new weapons and armor which similarly reflect the beasts that they are composed of. Of the 3 MH titles that are available to N. America, Freedom is the one that shows its age the most. Features taken for granted in other MH games like item combining from the convenience of your own chest is not available here. This game starts off a slower pace than the games to come later. I didn't have armor for the first five hours or so until I found monster that had the required materials, however, for hardcore gamers this is hardly a complaint. Working to earn every thing you obtain is part of the thrill of the MH series and this game is no exception. The farm, were you can grow and harvest your own crops, mushrooms, honey, ect. are all available. Multilplayer mode has just as much to offer and more if you can get together 1 - 3 friends. I can't say this is the best example of MH now but it was when it first arrived and for that it deserves a ten, though comparatively I would give it an 8 or so. If your looking for the best version of MH available in the U.S. look no further than Monster Hunter Tri on the Nintedo Wii. Full Review »
