I wrote a review of Monster Hunter Freedom for the PSP.
I cant believe Gamespot gave this game only 6.5 points!
This game is one of the best games on PSP up to date. I can't believe
that gamespot gave it only 6.5 points, that’s not fair...
The graphics are great on the PSP up to date and the sound sounds
incredibly great especially if you are playing with headphones that
support Dolby Surround.
The story is not ideal but there are a lot of quests that you can do,
many different types of equipment and weapons that you can modify later
on in the game. There is a big variation of different monsters,
everything from small dragons, to huge flying wyverns. The models seem
to be filled with hundreds of polygons and very well animated.
The game also features some kind of a farm with several cat-like
creatures that will take care of it while you are away, you can harvest
crops on that farm, and you can mine and find different types of ore
and metals (that you can later use to create weapons or armor), you can
also catch fishes and gather bugs and mushrooms. And later in game you
can upgrade your Kokoto farm and buy new plants and stuff, and that’s
Of course there are some down sides to, like: You cant rotate the
camera while you are in the village or when you are inside buildings,
but when you are on a quest you can rotate it diagonally and
horizontally, you can also invert x and y axis if you feel
uncomfortable with the default setting, and the most disappointing
thing about Monster Hunter Freedom is that it does not have support for
infrastructure gaming.. Of course you can play it with your friend via
the AD-Hoc p2p connection.
And there is one very important thing to remember about this game if you are planning on buying it….
This is not the kind of game that you will play while riding the school bus, or in the school break.
Because the quest takes pretty long time to complete, something from 20
to 50 minutes. But you can still play it at home or when you’re taking
a plane for a long distance (that’s what I will do soon ;)
I have never played original Monster Hunter for Playstation 2, but after playing Monster Hunter Freedom I sure will.
My Score: 9.6 (Superb)
