Bought MH2 as a $20 bargain bin chance a year ago. Now after 400+ hours of slaying, I anticipated this release more than ever. If you have never played, take a chance, ge a copy of any version 1, 2 or 3. Spend more than an hour and you will be hooked (took me a couple hours).
This version took my previous hunter and migrated him to a better version. All of the little things I lived with in MH2 have been fixed. Like combining items. Now all items have a slot for 99 instead of 10, 20, or 99. Also combine inside the box, HUGE benefit. No more need to add the 5 combo books to make a few items. Do it from the menu. Also mining, fishing and bug hunting inside the farm is better. No more endless clanks after mining a shaft that's empty. See how much bait is on left while fishing. Also, no need to run back and forth to fertilize with only worms. Use the amount you need as you can access stored items in the farm wihout carrying them! Send items to storage after you slayed a monster! No more selling good items due to space.
The new items, great forest map, weapons and armor make this a great game you can port your trusted character over with. After just one night of play I am hooked and addicted. I also have no more need to wait for the latest Madden to come out in August. MHFU is the best game on my PSP and look forward to another summer of carnage.

Wow....that's the word that just sums up this game to its fullest it is the greatest RPG i have EVER played, this is even including home systems like the xbox 360 and ps3. I honestly was never a MH fan but i am very glad a sprung for this game. Great graphics, great sound, great controls and has perfect controls for any fighting style. You must give this game a chance before you begin to judge i was very angry with my first 30 min of game play because it seemed like the game would never become exciting. But after coming back to try once more and getting into the quests and making my gear i was unable to set the game down. This game has managed to find the perfect difficulty as well, it has its challenging quests and bosses, which by the way met my every expectation perfectly, I hated the games that had 40 bosses that each took one 3 min try to beat, but this game has managed to take the "lets have one boss at the end and make him just hard enough were it takes around 10-20 times depending on the players skill but no so hard to were they give up on the game" i am not too far in the game and i have faced around 10 bosses all a little more challenging then the one before. This game was so great even when my copy that i bought broke i went out that same day to buy another copy. Dont miss your chance by not trying this game EVERYONE will love it.
