Monster hunter dynamic hunting is one of several iPhone titles by the busy Capcom corp, and a very playable title to boot. RPG’s are now becoming the standard platform on the iPhone, with independent standouts like Aralon HD and any squaresoft title proving that the iPhone is more than a casual gaming platform. MHDH has the necessary tweaks to make a very action orientated RPG very accessible to casual and serious gamers.
The controls are simple enough to where you’ll learn them in a matter of minutes, thanks to an in-game tutorial at the beginning. The battleground is restricted in space, but glorious enough on the iPhone screen that it feels like you’re in an epic battle each time you square off. It is game center compatible, and also co-op compatible through Bluetooth after finishing the first training mission.
Throughout the quest the player will receive several upgrades and ‘titles’ to display to other gamers. You can craft, but don’t expect anything fancy. The overall game is really simple but fun enough that it works and holds hours of interest (read: pretty much all well done iPhone titles)
There will be a sequel, I’m sure, and I would expect sometime down the line they will implement a massive online player system? Please? We’ll see
