Summary: I love this game. I lost my old copy, ended up with the newest edition for the DS and I still want to play the old edition. The game play is smoother, the options are wider. Its just a lot of fun. Its challenging enough to keep me interested, but no so overly challenging that I lose interest.
Summary: This game is amazing! Imagine you trying to help and save your village when millions of monsters try to kill you. As you can imagine the challenge can be hard in some situations. The controls are strange but okay. A down side is the online play stoped Dec 31 2007 and that is pretty bad saying you can only get some quests,armor,weapons,and items online. The graphics are great for ps2. The sound is amazing from wayverns roaring to music in the back ground it sounds great.
Summary: Monster Hunter is one of the best games I have played and os one of my favorites.It can be a challenge at times so you need to come up with a strategy for each mission.The controls are very good except when you put it down for a while and go back to it, it takes a while to get the controls back in your head.The graphics are better than I expected it to be.At times it is very hard to look up and down especially when in a very hard hunting battle.The game has many missions...
Pros: The whole design of the game was meant to be challenging. I find it sort of following the life style of the people during the prehistoric times where they do gathering and stuff. Its like the game encourages you to be familiar with your surrounding.
Cons: It's a bit unrealistic when dragon was knock into a corner and the dragon somehow hit you as if the wall was meant to make the dragon slide to you. when it was NOT suppose to, if you play the game you will understand
Summary: This game was the best of its kind. It has so many possibilities for character customization, you can make weapons, armor, guns, etc. and that's why you kill large monsters to get better weapons, to become the the best hunter in the village and town. Online is the best part (when it was still online) you got to hunt with a 4 man team and go ravage the land for treasure and your prey.
Summary: In preparation for the release of the newest 3DS title of this series, I repurchased this game. Although the on-line multi-player no longer works the single player is an excellent adventure on its own 9/10
Summary: this game is a must for all fans of RPGs on the PS2, i enjoyed it immensely , it has a great learning curve and tons of pik-ups and items to find ,loads of different monsters to slay and weapons/armour upgrades ,overall a fantastic game,another CAPCOM mini masterpiece,10/10 .
Excerpt: "The first time i heard about this game was in a PS2 magazine and once i had read the article i couldnt wait until it came out. I always kept an eye out for it. Then when it finally did come out i made sure i bought it there and then. The first thing you need to know it that this is an adventure game, where player create a hunter (character) that will go hunting monsters for whatever reason, wether its for food, for materials to make better equipment ...
Pros: Very good graphics, addictive, good use of controller, realistic camera
