    Best Monter Hunter game?

    Post by ChizFreak on Wed Jan 02, 2013 4:35 pm

    I've never played any Monster Hunter, but I keep hearing about them, and about how hard they are, I have a PS Vita so I think that maybe I could buy one of the Monster Hunter from PSP and play it in my Vita. But which one is the best? One that does justice to Dark Souls silly, or that has very deep RPG elements (character progression/development).

    Freedom Unite is the one I got hooked on. As far as character progression, it's not there in the sense of Dark Souls or any rpg for that matter. Your character doesn't ever level up personally. Instead your gear is what progresses and that goes deep. The more you hunt, the better your gear, and the tougher monsters you can hunt, which leads to better gear, etc. There are also a multitude of complimentary things to develop, like a farm, fishing, mining, combining to name a few. It's a wonderfully deep game that you can get lost in, and while it's not a traditional rpg, the sense of progression and accomplishment is pretty much the same.

    If you have a Vita the only one you'll be able to play is Freedom Unite since it's the only one in the PS store, at least in NA.

    Unite is the best, Tri for the Wii is decent but nowhere nearly as good as Unite.
    They're also making a new one for the Wii U and 3 DS which is released around March.

    I just got MH Freedom Unite, have put about 4-5 hours into it... and am still in the training section. This game is HUGE, not hard so far (that will change I'm sure of it) but so far not like the souls series really at all. What I like about it is I can do a mission, complete it, and put it down. Nice for my bus ride.

    Unite has more content, but as I have no desire to own a Vita, it's tri for me.

    I feel Tri also allows more than enough content for new players, a great and generally friendly online community, and a slightly less intense learning curve due to the Wii mote in my opinion. If you have a Wii, it is a MUST in my opinion.

    Both Tri and Unite are great. Your preferred system you have will be what makes the choice for you.

    I know I probably already know the answer to this question but here goes anyway. I just got a Vita not too long ago, and I was debating about getting MH on it if they had remapped the camera controls to the second analog stick. Is this so? Or is it still the claw finger for me?

    Dat claw adds character but I'm thinking the vita may not be as easy to pull off. Also I'm tired of the claw lol. It cost me many a precious second.

    I think I'm going to buy Freedom Unite then, thanks all for the tips. Does it has online or something like that?

    Rant, I don't understand what you're saying, why Freedom Two? It's another Monster Hunter game? Is the sequel to Freedom Unite? Remember I don't know anything about MH games.

    its the one before unite, unite was more of a expansion pack(new stuff along with the rest of freedom 2) just download the party thing in the psn store and log in there and you'll find people to coop with with, it might be hard to find people since everyone already has people they always play with but people will help newbies for the most part.

    Don't even worry about it Chiz, you can't get 2 on Vita anyway.

    As for online it has ad hoc (your immediate surroundings). You can dload Ad Hoc party on ps3 which effectively gives you online multiplayer, provided you find a room with players on MH. I would be willing to jump on it though. happy

    Sounds good to me! But give me some time, I'm gonna buy it in the following days silly! Add me on PSN meanwhile, but don't tell anyone my PSN ID: ChizFreak

    Seriously though, if I get it right, the game itself only has LAN multiplayer (ad hoc) but you can connect it to the PS3 to get real internet online and find rooms with random players? How do you do that? I didn't understand very well the part about the PS3 with ad hoc...

    PS: Emergence, if you happen to buy Mortal Kombat Vita, I will be happy to kick your ***. Oh and, IMO the GOTY of Vita is Gravity Rush. Excellent game.

    chiz, in my honest opinion, not to sound like a guy who beats on old games, but just get the newest one.

    The way monster hunter is, as much as i love it every game really is just an expansion pack on the old game, adding in more stars, quests, monsters without changing too much in real terms of gameplay.

    I feel sorry for monster hunter, it's been stuck on almost the same game engine for the past 10+ years stagnating.. get it back on the HD consoles where it bloody belongs.

    Okay, though I decided to buy the "newest" one that is available for PS vita silly, Freedom Unite.

    It seems the game looks way better when it comes to colors in the Vita than the PSP, just look at this video:



    One real question: does the game has different weapons? Because all I've seen so far are guys with ridiculously big swords all the time... can I be super archer? or some kind of caster? or is mandatory to be a warrior with big swordz?

    Chiz, Ad Hoc party is an app you dload off the PS store onto your PS3. You launch it and it basically takes your Vita's ad hoc and amplifies it to anyone else using Ad Hoc party. You can search for rooms by game then. It's best to have a few friends playing the game have a planned session which is what I did. I'm sure we could muster up a little Forum MH team.

    Okay thanks for explaining it. On a side note, could you answer my other question? The one about weapons. I'm interested because different ways to fight means more replayability.

    There are several ways to fight in the game, you can tank with huge melee weapons all the way to ranged "guns".

    Your equips consist of 4 piece armour and a weapon, like sword+shield, greatsword, katana, bowgun, lance etc.

    Each type of weapon has it's own moveset and advantages/disadvantages, as well does armour.. you'll end up wanting to horde armour for different resistances and probably different weapons too for different creatures. I do recommend giving the big weapons a shot though, they're really fun to swing around.
