    Freedom Unite is a huge game, and, naturally, a little intimidating. But not only are you getting the best installment of the Monster Hunter franchise so far (though Monster Hunter 3 will no doubt be just as grand), you're getting an enormous action RPG that gives you a lot in return for putting a lot in. And it can potentially keep you attached to your PSP longer than you ever thought.
  2. It's incredibly addictive. A great upgrade for Freedom 2 and one of the best PSP games today.
  3. 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.

    Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is an excellent update to the already impressive Freedom 2 and features an unbelievable amount of new content and end-game potential. [Aug 2009, p.116]
  5. It isn’t perfect, but despite a number of shortcomings and some control foibles, there is undoubtedly something about Monster Hunter- Freedom Unite to keep you going back for more punishment.
  6. It may be big in Japan but there's little here that is new, in this still deeply flawed mini-MMO.

    Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is one of the only reasons to own a PSP, the PSP system has always had a shortcoming with it's catalogue of Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is one of the only reasons to own a PSP, the PSP system has always had a shortcoming with it's catalogue of short, lack-lustre titles. This game fills that gap. With a challenging learning curve, extremely lengthy play time (it could be said that it is impossible to truly finish this game, you could easily beat the final monster and then carry on to play for another 300+ hours) and some nice new features it is an improvement on the precedent title. If you own a PSP you should definitely give this game a look in. 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 orMonster 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

    This game is not several things. It is not forgiving. It is not hand-holding. It is not easy. It is something that will challenge you every This game is not several things. It is not forgiving. It is not hand-holding. It is not easy. It is something that will challenge you every step of the way, with every mission an achievement, every new hunt a fear-inducing experience that forces you to learn all your options and those of the monsters you are trying to hunt. If you truly get into it, this game will earn your respect. Unlike some other games that feel like a cheap one-night stand to be tossed aside with the dawn, Monster Hunter will gain your respect, and eventually, love. Expand

Look i fought that monster when i was at 3 Stars this is gonna be easy.Your totally wrong fighting a monster at a low range is for kids but fighting it again like at high range or G range is alot harder.

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
