Excerpt: The PS2 version of Monster Hunter was a solid title, which if not for some big downfalls could have been an amazing game. Monster Hunter: Freedom is a remixed version of said game so of course has some welcome improvements, unfortunately not where it really matters though.
Excerpt: I was wondering what all the hype was concerning the Monster Hunter franchise. So I decided to get one of the early Playstation Portable versions to learn for myself. In the past Family Friendly Gaming has graciously passed on covering this franchise.
Conclusion: Veering between charming whimsy and violent slaughter, not to mention gameplay nirvana and hair-pulling frustration, with giddy abandon Monster Hunter Freedom finally settles somewhere below essential purchase, but still well above average.
