This game is without doubt one of the best. On this, you can do just about everything you can on Monster Hunter Freedom 1 and a lot more. The new monsters are so brilliant and the new weapons are just as good. The names of the places are the same but inside they are totally different to the first game, except the forest and hills which (personally) is great as it is. With new monsters and weapons, you can expect a longer game, and at times, more of a challenge. Anyone who liked the first monster hunter, will love this game twice as much!! It really is worth getting!!
