Excerpt: Monster Hunter: Freedom Unite starts with a hunter roaming the upper mountain regions only to find that some grazing animals have been attacked and eaten. Soon after, amid the howling winds, a terrifying creature known as a Tigrex appears. The Hunter stands their ground but is knocked from the cliff. The Hunter wakes later after his/her rescue and some rest and is revealed to have been chosen as the next Hunter for Pokke Village. This Hunter is you.
Excerpt: The objectives found in Capcom's Monster Hunter series can easily be garnered from the title itself, as Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is about one thing and one thing only: hunting monsters. Thankfully, many other gameplay elements go along with this one basic concept. For example, successfully hunting monsters will require proper armor and weaponry, which players must craft themselves out of ingredients found on quests.
Review: Bigger and a Bit Better - Monster Hunter Freedom Unite for PSP
23 February 2010
Excerpt: Capcom's latest game for the PlayStation Portable, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is an expanded edition of Monster Hunter Freedom 2. The new features of Monster Hunter Freedom Unite include over fifty new missions, new pieces of equipment and five more monsters than in Monster Hunter Freedom 2.
Excerpt: Like sliding into your favorite, comfortable outfit, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is familiar territory for fans of the two previous installments on PSP. The game has made some cosmetic upgrades that are subtle, like a starlet with good plastic surgery, but the "quantity vs. quality" scale has definitely tipped toward the former. It's not clear to us whether the PSP graphics get much better than this, anyway.
Excerpt: Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, Capcom’s MMO-style third-person hack and trap-em-up, is soul destroying. It’s monstrously difficult, the combat is clunky and it’s as slow as a turtle that’s carrying 20 turtles on its back. And yet it’s phenomenally popular and adored by critics. This is the great conundrum. How can a game so frustrating be so addictive? Let’s start at the beginning. I’m new to Monster Hunter.
Conclusion: Jouant allègrement sur le tableau de la suite qui effectue en fait plus une amélioration qu'une révolution, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite parvient néanmoins à s'imposer comme indispensable, même (et surtout) si vous disposiez du précédent. Car pour tous ceux qui sont tombés amoureux de cette série, il n'y a pas de challenge plus attirant que la possibilité de développer et d'équiper de manière plus conséquente un avatar avec lequel on a quelquefois passé plus de cent...
Pros: Toujours plus de tout, Durée de vie énorme, Addictif au possible, Rythme revu à la hausse
Cons: La caméra, toujours la caméra, Un vrai mode coop même si on n’a pas de potes
Summary: : Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is one of the best action RPG’s available on the PSP to date, and while it features a steep learning curve and a few odd design choices that might hurt your feelings, it more than makes up for it with some slick design and outstanding concepts that should please fans, both old and new.
Excerpt: Did I pack everything? I know I forgot something. Some of my friends have babies and toddlers, and the level of preparation needed for even the simplest trip to the grocery store is astonishing. Child seats? Check. Babies dressed? Check. Diapers? Check. Snacks? Check. Juice? Check. Tippy cup? Check. Stroller? Check. Toys? Check. Favorite stuffed animal? Check. Baby wipes? Binky? Talcum powder? Blanket? Check. Check. Check. Check.
Pros: Mind-bogglingly deep, Beautiful graphics, Hundreds of hours of gameplay, Mind bogglingly complex, That damn camera
