Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

It was different then, in our distant homeland. The beasts roamed freely. Some had teeth the size of a man. Some were bigger still. Our only defence were the hunters. And there was one, the most ferocious, the most intelligent, who stood above them all...

You are the Monster Hunter, a warrior hunting the biggest of big game ever... when you're not being hunted yourself.

4.0 out of 5 stars A surprise hit for Capcom. 31 May 2005
By A Customer
I recently bought this game after receiving a demo from devil may cry 3.
All I have to say is that it is quite similar to fantasy star online in the sense you create a character and then do missions online or offline with or without a team of 4 people its up to you.
Basically you play through variouse missions which are based on retrieving missions (Finding certain items on the area maps and then retreiving them back to camp sounds boring but these are fun)
Hunting missions (Finding a certain monster or group of monsters and taking them out)
Defending missions (This is an obviouse one)
Capturing missions (Capturing monsters and dragons and so on)
When you kill monsters you carve up there bodies and then use the items to make better armour for your character and weapons also combining items makes better ones.
This is a great game and I can't wait for a sequal but in the next one they need to sort that shaky camera out and improve on the combat and add a lock on so killing the monsters becomes a bit easier.
Due to sligtly dodgy controls I took one star away but the game is great fun online or off ( online being better because you can team up and there are slightly more missions to do) plus it gets strangely addictive when you keep doing the same missions as you always find a new item or creature to kill.
Buy this game now so more people play it online.

5.0 out of 5 stars The hunt is bigger then ever 30 May 2005
A well defined world, well designed environment plus realistic but yet fantasy creatures... welcome to the world of Monster Hunters!! It is a great game not just because of its superb game play, but also for maybe the first time, a player need not to be tied to a faction or carry a heavy burden on their shoulder to save the world (or some one), the aim is simple, take a mission (contract) and be famous! The game does not rely on gore nor violence, some of the missions are actually...cute. You do not kill to complete the missions, as a matter of fact, some missions require you to capture monsters, this gives the game a whole new level of depth. I played this game, loved it, recommended my boss's wife who has problems with their kids over playing games and addicted to bloody games, she loved it as her kids now no longer want to play violence filled, blood spilling games anymore. What to say? This game is definately addicting but due to time constrains of each mission, enforces a certain level of self constrain. Highly recommended, if I can, I'd rate it 6 stars!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Monster Hunter - a world to explore 5 Mar 2004
By A Customer
I have got a early demo of the game and I found that is a unique world explorer that lets you make your own charter.The way you play the game is never the same again because every person changes each time you play the game. Also your character is not tied down by size or shape because you select their abilities then you make your shape and size.It is very funny to see a tiny elf with a huge club.I recommend it to people that want to create their own story and make their own collection of characters.You will enjoy the game if you like your games with lots of opportunity to explore the environment.

5.0 out of 5 stars A game for the ages 16 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
In preparation for the release of the newest 3DS title of this series, I repurchased this game. Although the on-line multi-player no longer works the single player is an excellent adventure on its own 9/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Capcom does RPGs? Is this a joke???? 19 Jan 2006
No, it isn't Capcom have shrugged off their 90's image of just providing 2D side scrolling Beat-Em ups which we used to love and adore. Not any more, these guys are ratcheting up the pressure on Square-Enix, Sonic Team and Bethesda for the RPG must-buy factors.
Not played it much, but for what i have experienced, this game has a lot going for it, kill Creatures, and use their bones, hides and teeth to augment and repair your weapons and armor...
Exactly the kind of game i look for, where the most obvious answer isn't the one where you rush to the end in a blaze of ill-fated glory....
This is a thinking man's game, Storming into battle against the biggest monster there is may seem brave, but you'll end up spitting teeth and screaming for your mum if you ain't prepared for the onslaught.
This is a must have for anyone who wants to get the MAXIMUM out of their games, where your brain, not the controller decides how successful you are. Only Shadow of The Colossus which will be released soon will match it for life expectancy..
Buy it if you like a tough challenge, otherwise, go back to spyro and crash bandicoot, better making frisbees out of them...
