Monster hunter Freedom 2 is a game of skill, not button mashing, and achievements. To summarize your pretty much a an assasin/gladiator, except instead of trying to kill people, you kill monsters. I love this game, it's so much fun ONCE YOU GET INTO IT (which unfortunately took me about 10 hours to start fulling enjoying the game). Eventually, you'll understand the strategy behind killing monsters, and you'll start looking forward to doing farming. You have alot of motivation to play this game because you become truly proud and satisfied once you defeat a monster that has slaughtered you so many times before, your so happy as you run around your farm fishing mining picking mushroom and catching bugs. And your of course very excited to obtain the items needed to upgrade and invent new armor and weapons, however that's all the game is good for. The farm becomes and dedioues chore when you haven't accomplished anything big, and it just involves alot of clicking and waiting, bery repititious. Also, your dream weapong is about 20 hours away, the weapon that you master and you want to invent is very hard to obtain the parts. However, i'm not one who can go online,so i'm sure the friends you make who are further in the game can help you out. My last complaint is the difficulty, it becomes so hard, and i'm experienced, i've played about sisxty hours. I can't beat certain monsters, and I've been perseverent with killing the monsters before them, but the efoort that continouly increases just becomes impossible. However, if you can go online, I've heard there's always people online so with the help of three other people, i'm sure the tasks are do-able, but by yourself... yeah right. Anyways, if you have wireless interent and like games online, this is probably the best game for that, but without the help of random strangers, it's only a 3 and a half star.
