i forgot when it came out but i love it, its the bees knees if bees got a knees i think they do but thy are some very small knees… anyway i dont know wy but something about monster hunter i love alot i mean its only about missions going out and doing 3 things: 1. gathering an item/free time, 2.hunting a monster to bring down its number/hunting season and 3. Killing something important and i dont mean like how your doing mission type 2. the monster your hunting in the 3rd type are mostly twice your size if not 10 to 80 times larger than you. they have more health and think too, well too a point anyway one you know a monsters pattern, you can beat it all the time.
So yea thats all your do really, is hunt. tell you do have many different tools to us, its not just run and gun, you can kinda with the bowgun but its not an easy thing to do really but weapon wise you got (and its a long list might i add)long swords, great swords, sword and shield, lance, gunlace, hammer,hunting horn, bow and arrows,bowgun and heavy bowgun. all the weapons are used and played with differently so just cause both the bowgun and the heavy bowgun use the same ammo dont think for a second that you can treat them the same, you would hate the game if you do.
The game also has a simple multi-player on the psp you need to use local wifi to do it, now this wouldn’t me much of a problem if i knew alot of people that had it but monster hunter is not a very popular in the USA, it is loved dearly in japan though wish i could go there and i would play with alot of others. there is AD-Hoc mode but i need wifi but more importantly i would need a PS3 since that is now a new feature in it i think it came to the just recently, but it would alow me to go online with the game and finally do group missions.
thats another thing, the missions while i did say there are 3 types but didnt mention they come in solo or 4 person co-op which is very cool from what i seen wish i could play it though, hopefully i would be able to find some games online for monster hunter. i do wonder how you do talk to people i dont want to join a co-op quest where i would get nothing but raped cause am not ready for that monster. thats something i do wonder about, would there be a way to chat?, all i know about the PS3 AD-Hoc is that it works with PSP games that allow some kind of AD-Hoc connection. so i guess its what kind of ability that is programmed and the thing is as far as i can tell there is not way to talk to the other person, and thats not good, well not with monster hunter. trust me on this you need to talk to the other person or you going to end up killing them, i think. I am not sure if you can hurt your ally but i think you could with how this game, i know anyone that a bow user(any kind may not be liked so much if they use anything that scatters) and great sword users(can do an infinite combo with the longest reach of all the melee weapons) so am thinking this could be a bad thing but maybe Ad-hoc on the ps3 would have some way for me to talk like if they are on my buddy list like on the 360 and even than i dont know.
See, when you go to the online or offline gathering hall, its kinda like the hub were you got to meet the other players, pick your missions and than go out and do it together. with that being said the though that comes to my mind is that when you are in there, there is no way to talk to the other players unless they are in the same room with you and i mean physical in the same room, what the PS3 is doing with the AD-hoc would be putting it online but i dont know if you can talk to the people which is important monster hunter.
…………well i think am done i guess :p
