Summary: There really is nothing like Monster Hunter and it has a surprising amount of depth for a PS2 game, and this is just from a solo player point of view, I have never played online. As far as the depth goes I rate it right up there with GTA3 and Dark Cloud 2, both great, lot of depth PS2 games. Couple of negatives about Monster Hunter is the controls and interface could have been better and more refined. The graphics range from average to sub par.
Summary: Monster Hunter is a game unlike most and because of this many find it to be either incredible diverse or flat out unplayable, I myself fall into the positive placement when mention of the game comes up but that doesn't stop me noticing one problem with this particular version of the franchise, That being the non-existent multiplayer that once made this a perfect game, So if you don't mind playing this solo then you're all set and have no need to worry but if your buying...
Summary: This game is packed with fun and action. It's got hundreds of weapons and armor sets, hundreds of monsters to kill, and many more things...after about 2-3 months of playing offline it gets old... By the way the game's online was shut off. (biggest mistake ever!

Pros: the swords look cool the enviroments are devloped well for being a game made in 2001 i think it was made but i could be wrong right? the conrtols are simple unlike some games
Cons: other than no good maps and the fact you have a hard time hitting things...i mean come on who wants to play online ps2 games with people you dont even know.... that and talking with those people is hard well maby not so hard but to co-op with them
Summary: Reviewed for Big Boss Games by: JLR Have you ever looked down the blade of a sword, only to see a Dragon the size of small building staring back? This is just one of the situations you will find yourself facing in Capcom's Monster Hunter. To start, the graphics in this game are some of the most believable in a game to date. The environments are a decent size, broken up into about 8-12 small area's.
Summary: Monster Hunter was one of the best games that I have ever played. With 30 different monster, this game never gets old, especially if you play online.Also, this game has about 35 levels, give or take, so it never runs out of suprises. A word of advice, though, never take on a wyvern unless you have a really good weapon.
