When Glu’s Deer Hunter 2014 hit the App Store, many players began to wonder and actually expect the arrival of another hunting game, the action-packed Monster Hunter. Now the wait is over. Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, the port of the hit PS version five years ago, is now available for iOS.
Players with past experience with the Monster Hunter games will get into the iOS version quickly. The familiar contents from action-packed battle to interaction with environments for gathering are all transported. For novices, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is a good start due to its newly added user-friendly features like target lock-on, auto monster tracking and easier gathering.
Monster Hunter Freedom Unite features the solid solo campaign with a multitude of quests. It is a good way to horn skills and collect tons of materials to complete the cool armor set. It takes time to grow stronger and is involved replaying of a level. But it pays off and makes one feel proud when the hunter has put on hard-earned fabulous gear and become more skilled and powerful in combat.
A port of a console game released five years ago, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is overhauled in the game interface and optimized to present up-to-date graphics on the new platform. As the adventure leads hunters to the woods, snowy fields, dry lands, ruins and the like, it unravels a spectacular world.
Refined graphics aside, in-game interface is tailored to the touch screen, too. By simple swiping and tapping, players can adjust the camera and perform different actions to attack, dodge, escape, collect, etc.. But it takes some time before you get the hang of the control and get used to the several push buttons in the attack area. Or, there is the optional MFi game controller support that offers a better hunting experience. But note that it is not compatible with iPhone 4s or iPad (3rd Gen).
Noticeable is the addition of the online multiplayer gameplay. Monster Hunter Freedom Unite allows players to invite up to four friends to hunt ferocious monsters together. Work out plans beforehand, communicate with others via the Skype-like new chat function and hunt down huge beasts for great spoils.
Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is a great port. It is the best App released this week and it makes its way to the top-games list this month and even this year. [App Store Link]
