Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is by far one of the best i've played. If you can't take it online, although its still good, you may want to wait. The offline tends to get frustrated and repeating quests over and over again to get money gets boring fast.

+ Game works awsome online with no monthly charge
+ Armor changes the way you look as well as character customization, don't expect to find your game twin anytime soon.
+ Awsome quests
+ A large collection of weapons and armor to unleash your deadly rage.
+ Cooking, Fishing, Hunting, an more only add to the experiance.
+ Fights with Wyverns and online bosses like Lao feel epic every time.
+ Multible areas like the valcano or jungle.


- No offline multiplayer
- Frustrating offline mode
- 1 star quests offline are boring and are nothing but tutorials that have to be done.
- Can only leave town if your on a quest.
- this game WILL make you hungry when your cooking. Dangit, that well done steak looks good.

Your gamer,
Joshua Kyle Daniel

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! A Must-Get sleeper hit! July 12, 2006
By Gameboy
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I submitted an earlier review of this game based on level 1 missions. Well those are basically tutorials. I am almost to level 5 now and I have to say that this game rocks. I play offline only though due to lack of broadband connection, so it takes quite a bit of time to get money for upgrades to armor and weapons as well as the other necessary items required to survive the later levels. There are tons of armor and weapons to be had and any combination you desire...assuming you are able to aquire to necessary items carved from various creatures or won on various levels. Also, certain armor combos produce skills for your fighter such as resistance to poison, paralysis, knockout negated, and hunger halved. Weapons can also be upgraded to have attributes like inflicting poison status on your prey. I see that trading with the forest elders will also be invaluable for rare items. So far, I haven't had too much trouble completing any mission since I have upgraded to a great sword called the Dragon Agito. Very nice and powerful. =) Strategy is a key to defeating wyverns. Be sure to bring the appropriate supplies depending on the map you are fighting in i.e. desert bring cool drinks. Bring plenty of health potions and stamina recovery items such as well done steaks you cook yourself. Cool! =) Also, you have to know when to RUN! Seriously. If you are getting your tail kicked, run to another screen away from the wyvern, drink your healing potions, resharpen your weapon, and then go back to kickin wyvern tail! While you are away it is also a good time to make any other items you may need such as more pitfall traps to catch the wyvern in, more barrel bombs to weaken him, etc. If you play offline only like I am, it will take hours and hours and hours get the picture...

4.0 out of 5 stars Offline is fun too. October 17, 2004
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all, I'm only to give the game four stars because that's what I think it deserves in terms of playing offline(village). Everything looks great, character creation is diverse, the music is beautiful and kind of wierd at the same time, and ambient noises are-i think-the most redeeming quality since no other game developer has found time to match MH. Aside from that, expect alternative, albeit tight gameplay and interesting "side-activities" like fishing, roasting meat on a spit, and combining items to make different kinds of herbs and bait, as well as any variation of the game's weapons you want. Sadly, I have neither a Network Adapter nor a USB Keyboard, however Christmas is nearby so I hope to get an even more amazing game experience come December when I go online.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could be outstanding July 6, 2004
By jadice
Format:Video Game
monster hunter, as stupid as the name sounds, looks quite impressive. The plots simple-your a hunter trying to make a living by hunting numerous monsters. What makes it so interesting is the gameplay mechanics and the online capabilities. There can be up to four people at once, each hunting for a certain monster. The game looks as if it will focus on cooperative strategy over all out combat. You'll have to work with your team in order to achieve victory and defeat the monster. Setting traps and using tools are what you'll probably have to focus on. In a trailer i saw, a lone hunter was being chased by a giant dragon-like creature. He lured the monster into a snare, and the others suddenly dropped in and began to hack away at the entangled creature. Very impressive. The game also looks beautiful. Lush jungle areas, barren deserts, and swampy forests were filled with a great amount of detail. Overall, the game looks great, and i hope to see it on dial-up when it comes out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly Addictive Online Play July 14, 2005
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, don't buy this game if you can't play it online. because offline the game is insanely hard and boring. But for those of you who are lucky enough to have a network adapter, then go ahead and bye it. This game is not for everyone though, and in my eyes is a rpg at heart. For me this is a good thing because I love rpgs, esp. online ones. But if your looking for a great action game, do yourself a favor and buy god of war instead. If rpgs are your thing though, and you have online access, do yourself a favor and buy this now. The online play is much easier and more rewarding. Here's an example: Offline raw meat quest gives you like 50z (money) or something like that. And online gives you 600z. Every quest is like this too, which is a main reason the single player is not much fun. Also online you get to go on quests with up to 3 other players (4 total) which lowers the difficulty a lot.

As for the gameplay itself, it can be very fun, esp. durring a dragon fight where all 4 players are hacking away at the huge creature. These battles seem very epic with the battle music and sheer amount of hits it takes to down one, it really feels like your hunting this dragon.

But, there are some control issues, like the camera. The camera in this game I am sorry to say is completely terrible. The d-pad is used to rotate the camera which is impossible to use while running with the left analog stick and swinging your weapon with the right analog stick. Meaning your only way to turn the camera is to tap the L1 button which points it strate in front of you. This creates various problems as you might of thought. Looking behind you in a fight is impossible. The actual weapon handiling isn't that bad once you get used to it, but it is fairly sluggish.

4.0 out of 5 stars Monster Hunter 1, PS2
I thought this game would be fun. But it was just, doing the same quest over and over. Until, you save up for weapons and armor. I got bored, after 2 to 3 days, of playing it.
