Previous games

117 - Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops - 8.9 - 10
118 - Alien Syndrome - 6.33 - 6
119 - Midnight Club: LA Remix - 8.8 - 5
120 - Prinny 2: Dawn of Operation Panties, Dood! - 7.25 - 4
121 - Code Lyoko: Quest for Infinity - 7.33 - 3

I was given a site, that while lacking a feature I was hoping for (word search to see series listings, for both me and anyone viewing it), it is much better than just listing them here. If someone can suggest elsewhere with the feature I want, just send a PM my way and help improve the list.


- Keep your ratings to only whole and half numbers. I hate getting 6.13 and similar scores, it is more work for me.
- Only rate if you have played the game. I don't require you to have beaten it, but watching a video isn't enough.
- Topics will be updated roughly every 24 hours, with an extension to 48 hours if I don't feel a game has enough votes. If it reaches the 48 hour mark without enough, it shall be ended without a final score.
- If you want to suggest a later game, PM me with PSP Rate a Game as the title, and be sure to use the full title.
- I want to start seeing reasoning for scores that differ from the majority, to lessen potential trolling. Giving a 10 when the rest is 8s and 9s, fine. A random 1 in that lot makes me suspicious.


The previous game was Code Lyoko: Quest for Infinity, which scored 7.33 from 3 votes. It tied with Me & My Katamari, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands and Gitaroo Man Lives!.

The current game is Monster Hunter Freedom.


I have the PS2 original, but have not played the PSP version.

10/10: This is the real deal, the PSP version of the Japan-only PS2 Monster Hunter G, an expansion of the original PS2 Monster Hunter, with the basics of what we have come to expect from Monster Hunter games.

MHF offers lush environments, endless customization, and a huge variety of creatures to engage in real-time combat with ranged and melee weapons. Gameplay includes hunting, gathering, exploring, combat with creatures large and small, crafting weapons and armor, fishing, and managing a farm, with missions for the Village Elder and the Hunting Guild.

In the same series, Monster Hunter Freedom spawned MHF2 and MHF Unite, and the next series, Monster Hunter Tri and Monster Hunter Portable 3rd and 3G. It's an open ended game with lots to see and do, not a game you can ever actually "finish". Although the later versions offer more missions and more features, MHF is of more than historical interest and can still stand on its own merits.
I'm waiting for Bandai to release the WonderSwan/SwanCrystal II and blow both the Vita and the 3DS away.

I love the series, but there is no doubt that this is a love it or hate it game. I personally love it. The camera can be annoying though, hence the 9
This is who we are

The game is solid, placing you in the middle of large monster battles using your skills alone. However its appeal is limited to gamers willing to grind and repeat quests. Those quests are sometimes tedious and can take close to an hour (yes, I know fans can complete them more quickly but I'm referring to a maximum). Others have complained about the targeting, camera, and healing animation. However for those willing to put up with the limitations, it can be thrilling.

I recommend people try it or watch videos, but I know it won't be for everyone.

9/10 - A polarizing title, to be sure, but one of my all-time personal PSP faves, warts and all.

What can I say, it's monster hunter and it's portable. It is like crack, get a taste of it and you can't stop.
