This is without a doubt the cause of half of the worlds suicide rates. After you have spent 45 minutes trying to kill a giant beast, to be killed by a little pig, it is enough to push anybody over the edge.
The graphics of MHF's sequel are again fantastic and new levels such as the Snowy Mountains and new jungles and deserts push the poor little psp to its limit.
This time around there are many more monsters which have been imported from the old PS2 games, each of them with different habits and attacks.
MHF2 again does not have an actual storyline, but the main purpose of the game is to advance through the hunter ranks where you will meet new monsters or old ones that are just stronger.
This is the first series ever i think where you actually need proper skill. I mean any one can complete stupid super mario, but make a ten year old play this game it is impossible.
When you are 30 minutes into a battle and you pass out for the third time, I swear on many occasions i have nearly thrown my psp through a window! It is that annoying to think that you have just wasted 30 mins of your life.
But that is what makes the game so good, I did eventually master the game, the thing that makes this game so good is the challenge.
I personally do not use the online play, so I cannot review that right now, but my friends say it is just for people who are not good enough to do it on their own.
A very very good game but requires buckets full of patience.
