I know man when i started i was like lets do this and then i find out i have to learn hiragana katakana and then just then learn kanji to finally learn it all.
I already catch some stuff here and there can watch some anime raw and get almost around 20% to 50% if it's a fight well they just don't need to talk much.
But yea when i was learning english videogames where the ones that gave me the push i wanted.

It isn't worth it, plus the cost of the console, importing mh 2 would cost loads, just get an emulator, there is probably a fan translation somewhere ;)

There is a patch out, so you have to play a burned copy with a patch applied on an emualtor. The patch is only for items menus.

dos Has much more features than tri. Mainly because tri is a 3rd gen game (everything is new).

Dos would last anyone much longer than tri.

I just wish some other MH's had cool features dos did.

that was just a horrible comparison....
Dos doesn't even compare to tri it compares more to 3U. Dos and 3U incorportae elements from 2 games prior, they were just sequels where as Tri was a whole new generation and introduced a whole new slew of aspects and approaches to the franchise.

Dos was the start of second generation so it is a fair comparison if you think about it that way.


Now the best comparison I feel is the original to tri. Try pretty much being an entirely new game only keeping three monsters from prior games and completely revamping the games mechanics Monster Hunter on the other hand was the base of the series every game until tri pretty much played the same with dos being sort of the follow up and introducing new weapon classes.

No one here's even played Monster Hunter Dos. Everything in that's in Freedom Unite, so why even bother?

It doesn't compare? Nobody is talking about 3U. MH2 was a second gen that included mh1 parts into it. 3u was essentially an expansion. Tri to 3u is what freedom 2 is to unite.

Talk about terrible comparison...
