E3 2004: Monster Hunter Impressions

  Capcomís ambitious action/adventure game was on display in full force. Monster Hunter looked downright fantastic. The character detail was spectacular. The monsters themselves were superbly detailed, arguably some of the best on the PS2. The detail on the human characters was up there with detail, too. The animation was smooth and the framerate was very stable. The environment detail was downright amazing. The draw in-distance was vast, and the overall scenery looked rather stunning.

The action is completely real time. You engage any enemy you see and fight with it right away. There are no delays between attacks; itís all action. The fighting is controlled with the right analog stick -- something I rarely approve of -- but it seemed to work well with Monster Hunter. Though it may seem somewhat complex, Monster Hunter was surprisingly easy to pick up and play. Whatís great about Monster Hunter is that itíll be online compatible. Youíll be able to play up to four players, and based on what we played today, the online mode should be incredibly fun.

Look for Monster Hunter to hit sometime before the end of the year.

What do you think about The Last Of Us: Remastered?
Fantastic! Can't wait to get it!
Good, not sure if I'll buy immediately.
Eh, not bad, but I don't care.
It's just a stupid money grab.
