Being one of those guys who has spent hundreds of hours hacking through countless monsters hoping for a single item to drop in Diablo II, it doesn't take much to sell a game like Monster Hunter Freedom Unite to me. Is there loot? Yes. Does the loot look cool? Okay, whatever, let me play. Unfortunately, I've never been able to get into the series' PS2 or PSP incarnations for a number of reasons, mostly because you need to play it with other people, and I didn't know anybody who played."
