Monster Hunter Freedom Unite
5 Best Monster Hunter Games of All Time
One of the older games in the series, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite first debuted on the PSP back in 2008 in Japan before being localized the year after for Western audiences. Before 4, Freedom Unite was the most expansive installment in the series, adding a wealth of new monsters and subspecies that fans hadn’t seen before. Similarly, the older beasts had gotten some new moves and attack reactions, adding a slight twist to the hunt.
Freedom Unite also gave more importance to solo hunting by adding the Felyne Comrade system. These adorable little critters join players during missions and help out with their own little attacks and abilities. Freedom Unite acts as a great foundation for the series and is still pretty fun to play if you are looking for a challenge. The only downside to the game was the strange control scheme on the PSP, especially since the handheld only had one analog stick.
