Another attempt to infect Capcom America and Europe main hobby Japanese owners of PSP - the TV series Monster Hunter Freedom, in which the player plays the role of the hunter on all living creatures, we can say, failed. To form the most common, but in fact a deep and fascinating, this action has won so popular in Asia and has long led the sales charts in Japan. Its latest version, named 2G at home and overseas in the localization process dubbed Unite, takes as its basis MHF2 and adds much new content that would be enough to complete the third part. Due to this Unite for today is not simply the best release of the series, but does one of the major games on the PSP. Moreover, for the sake of her people are buying this console - and not at all disappointed in the decision.
Even before the game and the emergence of the demo version was launched website Encyclopedia Gigantica (www.encyclopedia-gigantica.com), where you can find detailed help on monsters and watch various training videos. This suggests that Unite is primarily designed for trained player who does not even need to create a new character (you can always load the old save from the previous issue), and newcomers will be in difficulty, and better to know beforehand all the difficulties and to obtain all necessary information. And indeed, the training mode gives you a general idea about the game, and one of only text and not always sufficiently clear, and the first few quests send the hero to collect plants and to fight dangerous monsters in the mountains. Cope with this, perhaps, not too difficult, but there is a fair question - and it all? So much fun because of the ability to beat the dinosaur two attacks, and fry station?
Of course not. Fun in the Monhane "begins in the first village, where are all the most important preparation. Need to buy medical drugs (though in which case it makes sense to search the plant already in place and try to eat it - sometimes it helps), stones for sharpening weapons, pick, dip net for catching insects ... in general, to collect everything that might be useful. It should also make sure to take extra potions, warming in the cold and refreshing in the heat. Before the new campaign would be good to eat, ordering a hearty meal in the kitchen, and the road would be nice to get something edible. These preparations do not notice the routine, on the contrary - each time discovering something new, eksperimentiruesh. And you know, all that really matters, because each subsequent assignment for the hunter - is a serious challenge, which must not only survive but also to return with a full inventory of trophies that are intended for sale.
These tests - hunting - is what attracts the attention of gamers all over the world, what became known series, and then, making a DVD-monthly magazine Famitsu Wave lasted almost a year column, where two leading and representative of Capcom shared secrets. At various locations - from ice caves to tropical rainforests - you can meet a variety of unusual creatures, peaceful or aggressive, to find mine for the extraction of minerals, plants, some of which are consumed immediately, filling the health or energy, while another part is better to reserve and then sell.Killed animal should be to cut, getting the bones and meat, which you can fry or use as bait for bigger monsters. Crucial that, with what weapon to go hunting, the ability to properly use them. Unable to defeat a powerful monster, not apart around the trap, not trying to paralyze or poison him, or better yet - just catch it. Going on a particularly large creature, it is necessary to carefully study its habits, find the weak spots, find out what the bones will break soon. And most importantly: the game alone does not give a tenth of the pleasure which you get from the multiplayer. That one will master the tenth attempt, an experienced team of hunters will overcome the first, if you choose a good tactic and correctly assign responsibilities - who is distracting, held before him impenetrable shield, who catches the right time to stun the dragon, but who throws himself into the attack and mercilessly hack beast with a sword more human growth.
The question of how quickly it all can be annoying, rejects at once. "The passage of all four quests for approximately five hundred hours" - the developers say. Telling the whole story, of course. And yet for Monster Hunter wants to come back again and again to get another opportunity to fight the great beast. And there, staring, and a new release arrives. Or online Monster Hunter Frontier is finally launch outside of Japan and Korea. SI
