Monster Hunter Freedom 2 is by far the best version of one of the best video games ever made (I’ve played all US and Japan versions). Lots of little improvments over the Japanese PS2 release makes this worth the wait. The best dragon/creature fighting experience you can have in a game – but it takes work and patience to get there.
Huge hit in Japan, but so-so in USA outside its core fans. Reviewers calling for auto-target miss the whole point of this game: it’s all about developing the skill to target specific areas of each monster (and then not getting killed!). Camera is definitely weird at first, but once you get the hang of it you’ll be wishing other games used the same system. Basically YOU have to point the camera, it doesn’t move for you! Final aspect of game is it takes patience to do a little farming, mining, bug catching activities – something I enjoy but not for everyone, however, with new version you can minimize those activities if you just want to bust some monsters up. Some people may never get over those hurdles, which is fine – there are plenty of games that I don’t like that are still great games.

This game is awesome, but be prepared to spend a lot of time on it. It’s hard to just turn on and really accomplish anything if you only plan to play it for 20 minutes at a time, but it’s still not impossible. The game is hard, you will die, you will spend time crafting, farming, harvesting, mining etc to try and gather the materials necessary to upgrade your gear and that’s essentially what the whole game is about. Skin monsters, harvest bone, scales, horns, claws, etc… and then craft new weapons and armor out of your latest victims. Incredibly addictive, maybe a bit of a learning curve if you’re new to the series but worth it.
Afterall it is the fastest selling PSP game ever for a reason.
