Summary: Monster Hunter offers gamers the challenge of exploring vastly detailed environments confronting mammoth creatures and completing the numerous quests that await them. The game can be enjoyed either single player offline or four player online. In Monster Hunter, the world is a much simpler placefor early civilization. Fantastic creatures from all walks of life coexist with mankind. The struggle to hunt or be hunted rules the world. As young monster hunters, players will face a variety of quests and battle against powerful beings either aloneor with the aid of others. Players begin by selecting and customizing their main character from a host of groups, each with their own arsenal and fighting techniques. Monster Hunter unfolds as expeditions are revealed and players are given the option to choose between the wide ranges of challenging assignments they would like to undertake. Objectives vary from defeating specific beasts, protecting a town or collecting items. Hunters are richly rewarded for every accomplished objective or the valiant efforts put forth during battle, allowing them to obtain more powerful weapons and equipment. The world continues to expand as difficult missions are successfully accomplished. [Capcom]
