    I think that this game was amazing! I had so many amazing times with this game, yes the controls are hard to get used to and yes the camera can be slightly frustrating, but the multiplayer is really where Monster Hunter shines, the experience you have hunting with a group of friends to collect and grind over and over for better armor and weapons becomes endless fun!

    It's interesting, and a bit frustrating, to see a game with such a unique devotion to a single type of play.

    Problems with the camera and controls hold it back from mass appeal, and unless you have the broadband adapter, you're missing out on a large chunk of the experience. With that said, there's definitely enough here to for serious players to enjoy if they're willing to devote the time necessary to really dive into the game.
