This feature continues via the PSP's Ad-Hoc connection in Monster Hunter Freedom Unite.

And this effort and cooperation is never in vain. Succeed in this and players will be rewarded for their use of the deep fighting combat systems, encouraging them to seek out even more experienced hunters and team up in order to learn from their experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hunters UNITE! June 24, 2009
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Well first of all I want to state I' am an avid monster hunter fan, from the ps2 game to the psp ones. So my review might be a little subjective but I will try to be as objective as possible and put myself in the position of a newcomer to the franchise. And also I apologize for the length of the review. It really is a vast game there is soo much to do and so little space to explain it all in.

A few things for players from MHF2 thinking this is a brand new experience, think again. Think about it as an expansion with new missions, monsters armors, weapons, and hunter ranks. You still reside in the quaint little home up in the mountains, and all the lovable characters are still there from the cooking Felynes to the old lady who gave you the elder quests.

Now on to the review. For the newcomers this game has an amazing ray of things to do, put yourself in the position of a hunter, you are constantly hunting monsters who reside around your village. From giant dragons to giant crabs (and not the STD type) you have 5 different land types where you hunt them from the jungle, desert, snowy mountains, forest, and volcano. Also each land type has time cycles so you can hunt them at night or in the day. Now each hunt is received in the form of a quest, there are 2 places you can get these, from an elder how will give you village quest (which you may only complete by yourself) or by going to the hall.

The hall can be played offline meaning you can do the quest there by yourself (although most can be complete alone there are some that you should look for help) or online via ad hoc.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Game! July 4, 2009
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
It's not difficult to see why the Monster Hunter series has become the leading PSP franchise in Japan. Offering gamers the chance to hook up together on quests to hunt ferocious monsters and search for hidden treasures across an appealing fantasy game world, this action RPG possesses many of same addictive qualities that have made other role playing games, such as the Final Fantasy titles, so popular. High praise has been lauded on the latest game in the series, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, after it became the top selling game in the Land of The Rising Sun last year, besting the likes of Pokémon Platinum and Wii Fit. In the U.S. and Europe, though, Monster Hunter faces a very different type of audience. Will it appeal to the taste of Western players?

Monster Hunter Freedom's combat mechanics will test even the most hardened of gamers. The third game in the series, Freedom Unite once again places you in the role of an up-and-coming hunter who must complete various hunting, slaying and gathering missions to achieve glory. Setting off from your base camp of Pokke Village, you pick up quests from the Guild Hall and embark on treacherous missions across stunning environments, including snow-capped mountains and harsh desert terrain.

Freedom Unite is all about learning your craft and learning it well. If you begin a quest without preparation, you'll be obliterated by the tough monsters lurking around every corner. Whether you're heading out on a level-one quest to pick mountain herbs or braving the cold desert nights on the hunt for the land shark, there's a lot to learn if you plan to come back alive and earn your reward. Combat in Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is difficult to grasp at first, but once studied and practiced, it is intensely satisfying.

This review will focus on the single-player experience. Monster Hunter Freedom Unite (MHFU) is one of the most-challenging games available for any platform, and the sense of accomplishment when besting enemies in the game is unrivaled. This is especially so for those who play the game solo, relying purely on skill to get by rather than the backup and mercies of other players.

This wasn't always an entirely reasonable option in the MH series. Making MHFU significantly more agreeable for solo play is the addition of "felyne" fighters, small AI fighters who provide various support and attack roles. Primarily, they help to provide another focal point for belligerent monsters to provide necessary openings for the otherwise solo player. They can also be given a limited ability to heal or buff the player character, but at the whims of an unpredictable AI. As such, the solo player can assume the possibility of, say, an impending health boost from the felyne companion (importantly, only one accompanies you) but can only rely on him or herself to do so on demand.

Regardless, one will never get anywhere in solo MHFU without significant gameplay skills. And this can be especially daunting in the early going. There will even be those who possess the requisite gaming skills but determine this isn't for them. Which is fair, as there is no storyline worth mentioning and not much compelling progress beyond the opportunity to build better weapons and armor and fight increasingly challenging foes.

Which brings us to why some of us ARE so enthused about the game. Most importantly, there are very few games that so successfully mix graphics, sound, and control "feedback".
