REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

EPIC QUESTS ARE AT HAND AS CAPCOM® PRESENTS MONSTER HUNTER FREEDOM FOR THE PSP™ (PLAYSTATION®PORTABLE) SYSTEM

LAS VEGAS - February 16, 2006 - Capcom®, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today showcased Monster Hunter Freedom for the PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable) system. Building upon Monster Hunter and Monster Hunter G (Japanese release only), which were originally released on the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Monster Hunter Freedom is the ultimate package, including new missions, additional features and content adapted for the PSP system. Adventurers are now free to take their epic battles with them wherever they go, as they explore a unique world inhabited by ferocious monsters and become mighty hunters in this exciting action game. With a multitude of missions, quests, characters, weapons and more, the variety is virtually limitless. The game features both enhanced single player campaigns as well as multiplayer missions via the PSP system's ad hoc mode which allows up to four friends to band together for intense battles. Monster Hunter Freedom is rated "T" for teen audiences by the ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) and is planned for release across North America in Q2 2006.

In Monster Hunter Freedom, challengers take on a variety of quests and conquer larger than life beasts either alone or with the aid of others. Players start by customizing their own character, choosing the type of hair, face, voice and other various attributes their personalized monster hunter will possess. They can explore a hub village where they can sign up for various challenges ranging from retrieving a valuable egg from the nest of a menacing dragon to hunting down powerful creatures and much more. Hunters can scavenge defeated monsters for food, collect bones for weapons and armor, and even use pieces for decorative accessories. In addition, by completing objectives, players receive an array of rewards that allows them to upgrade their arsenal and equipment, readying them for even tougher battles.

Monster Hunter Freedom boasts an array of exciting new features for the PSP system:

  • Breathtaking graphics – lush environments and detailed monsters are beautifully represented on the PSP system
