Monster Hunter: World, A Series That Brings The Big Changes

Monster Hunter is one of the most popular franchises up to now and also one of my favorite franchises I’ve ever played on PlayStation 2. Initially, I first know Monster Hunter when one of my friends introduced this game. I borrowed one of his games and I didn’t understand what the game was trying to tell me because the language that used was Japanese. So, I didn’t t understand what the hell this game is. The gameplay can be fairly simple, you play as a hunter who killed a monster or a dragon and takes some material on it. You can use this material as crafting some weapon and armor. However, I don’t understand Japanese and a few months later, I bought this game in the game store and now I can play with the English language. When I play it at home, I can’t stop beside enjoying the existing gameplay. After a few years, I immediately sell my console and replace it with a PC that I use until now. But, I always can’t move on with this game even I always come to the game rental to try once again this game back in the day.

Monster Hunter

January 26th, 2018, the latest series of Monster Hunter’s Monster Hunter: World finally came out and I just didn’t know what to say because the Monster Hunter series is the latest series that brings a lot of great changes in it. I’m a fan of this franchise was very shocked. The theme that was brought in here is not much different from the first series and also I don’t know what to say about this series. Therefore, I just want to give a little review of this series of this very famous franchise.

Monster Hunter first came out in 2004, developed by Capcom and available on any platform. Just like typical RPG games, Monster Hunter gives us a basis where the gameplay is fairly simple and doesn’t require a story at all, although only a few are like that. The player will be given a mission from the first star to the highest star. These stars were originally a quest tutorial to find out how this game works. If I see this game as a spectator, I think this game will look very boring but if you try it then it will move the other way. The world that presented in this game is not much different from other RPG games, where a world filled with herbivorous and carnivorous animals. In addition, the main opponent you are fighting is also a dragon or other great monsters. You don’t need EXP to kill monsters in this game, just with master skilling gameplay and the equipment then you will be able to conquer this game. If I go back where the era of PlayStation 2 is still triumphant, Monster Hunter is different with others if we differentiate with other popular games at that time. Call it like Resident Evil 4, Shadow Of The Colossus who recently get a remake, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Vice City, God Of War I & II, Bully, and much more if we determine it one by one. For Monster Hunter, you could say this is my first favorite game after Vice City and Resident Evil 4.

Monster Hunter World 01

Honestly, I actually only played the first series, the second series, and the Freedom Unite. The second series can be fairly normal if I compare with the first series although there are some additional features in it. So, I’m more memorable in the first series compared to the second series and Freedom Unite is the best series I’ve ever played in this franchise. Although I’ve never played the third and fourth series, Freedom Unite is the best series I’ve played so far. The additional features that don’t exist in the first series like petting where you can take your pet to go hunting together and farming where you can pick up some materials to make potions or crafting various weapons and armor. Some added map features and monsters that are not in the first series, Freedom Unite is arguably the best Monster Hunter series I’ve ever played in my opinion.

Monster Hunter: World, a series that can make me amazed when I see the beauty of the world from this Monster Hunter. The first time I saw it through the trailer that could make it unreasonable. The more frightening and more senseless monsters to see, the more modern weapons to eradicate the monsters, and the better features of the multiplayer system. I was immediately amazed to see this new Monster Hunter. The difference is also very great if we judge from all aspects.

  • First, the new gameplay used here is open world. This is very different from previous Monster Hunter and this is also one of the developments of this franchise.
  • Second, the addition of story mode that I think it looks mediocre to me.
  • Third, the larger map and you can explore it without loading at all. The previous series always require loading if we move to one area to another. But not for Monster Hunter: World because you can explore it without loading a bit.
  • Fourth, the footprint feature will be easier to find a monster. The series I’ve ever played actually didn’t exist like this game but this is also a big change for this game.
  • Fifth, you can ride some monsters as your mounts to get additional material. You could say this is like a fight in the air where you can make the monsters as a rodeo.
  • Sixth, the soundtrack is more gripping than the series that I play. However, the soundtrack in this franchise is arguably the best of everything.
  • Seventh, the additional weapon type that is not in the previous series and much more if you see from various aspects.

Monster Hunter: World is a series that brings big changes from this franchise. Monster Hunter has always been my favorite game I ever played on the PlayStation 2 although some people always judge that Monster Hunter is a very boring game. I can only be amazed at the gameplay and I hope I can play it too. Even so, Monster Hunter: World is a game with rising sale in this year mainly in Japan. I can only see some of its gameplay while I can only hope that I can play this game as well.

Game – Scarface: The World Is Yours [REVIEW] – When Tony Survives, His Quest To Kill Sosa Begins

IGN Rating: 8,7/10
Genre: Action-adventure
Developer: Radical Entertainment
Publisher: Sierra Entertainment
Platforms: PlayStation 2, Xbox, Windows, Wii


Sometimes, gamers are very difficult to get a good game that’s licensed especially games based on the film. In general, it’s also very rare to find a good game based on the movie because there are more bad games out there. A few years later, Scarface: The World Is Yours comes out with a lot of expectations that gamers imagine. Even more than good to be called the best game of the year because it’s very rarely the first game that issued a game with the theme of an open world like Grand Theft Auto. However, Scarface: The Wolrd Is Yours can be played with a system that’s fulfilled in it like Grand Theft Auto, and this game’s also an adaptation of a movie titled the same. The result brings the gamers into a deeply felt experience with a few original ideas that offer players more sense in it.

“Scarface: The World Is Yours,” is an adaptation game titled same as the movie. Only, the background story was taken at the climax of the film where Tony is surrounded by a subordinate of the king of drugs called Sosa by breaking into his mansion. If in the movie Tony didn’t survive, then in this game Tony managed to escape from the siege of the enemy. After that there was nothing left, his family had gone, and also his best friend. He had to travel all over Miami, the Bahamas, and others in order to take revenge on Sosa by rebuilding his ruined kingdom.

Scarface Tony Running On

The background of the story taken this game is actually much different from the one in the film. Only, it seems this game tells a different route in the movie. If at the end of the movie Tony Montana died in the enemy siege inside his mansion, then this game takes the background of Tony Montana managed to escape in the siege of his enemy. Scarface presents us a game that’s not much different from Grand Theft Auto although the characters that exist in this game just appear in it. We play as Tony Montana who’s also the protagonist in the movie. It seems that Scarface’s improving inside for open world like this. We go around the city to take a city expert and make our men receive the drug in it. Although the story presented in this game looks simple, Scarface: The World Is Yours is a gameplay experience that we can feel and features that are really interesting inside. The purpose of this game’s to rebuild the mansion that has been destroyed by the first story. When playing this game, little by little the ability of Tony will be rebuilt and can revive his mansion again. Our disappointment arose when knowing that this game isn’t filled voice by Al Pacino as the main actor in the movie as well. However, André Sogliuzzo has tried so much to accent, the dirty words he often pronounces, so his voice that can be spelled a bit like it all is pretty good even though there’s little lack therein. Animation presented in this game’s already perfect featuring Tony Montana is almost similar in the movie as well.

Scarface Mansion

One of the features presented in this game is also fairly interesting and experienced an increase in it is a skill called Balls meter or rage meter in general. This Balls meter is a skill rage that Tony did by killing some enemies or creating some chaos while playing this game. By shooting some parts of the enemy’s body like head, hands, feet, etc., we will get Balls as well as useful taunting to increase the Balls meter. When the Balls meter is full, the player will see from first-person with unlimited bullets to invincibility. You can use this skill by causing chaos to full blood will make us become crazy about Balls meter. Balls meter also uses a lock-on system where the target will lock itself from the player so you can shoot in any direction. This game uses a free control system like the game Max Payne or other third-person games, allowing players to see freely around and can see easily where the enemy will appear.

Scarface Gang Heat

Scarface is a game where you can perform an action that raises a lot of blood in it. You can buy a property that’s useful for doing drug transactions in it, take a warehouse that is useful for doing more drug transactions from one island to another island and hire useful goons to protect the players. All of that’s also controlled by the phone menu feature, where this system you can buy a car, increase your empire to know the area that hasn’t been taken by the player. The other system available in this game is the Heat and it also goes with the gang and the police. The higher the Heat meter, the higher the fugitives of the players so you will often find enemies who are looking for the player. You can pay them by using the phone. One feature that succeeds in getting its players annoyed or someone likes it’s a system where you are being chased by police but not just a police chase. If you are temporarily pursued by the pursuit of police, two meters will be seen on the screen. The first meter is the meter where you should be able to escape as quickly as possible. The player must be able to get out of the radius on the radar in order to escape in a police chase. Another meter is a meter where the entire map is surrounded by many police officers. This meter’s red so you should be able to escape as soon as possible in the pursuit of the police because if the meter is full, you should surrender it.


Overall, Scarface: The Wolrd Is Yours is a very fun and addictive game to play. This game can actually be quite good for open world game like this although there are only a lot of flaws, especially on PC. Scarface has brought a wonderful experience to the world of Scarface even though some people also consider that this game’s not completely perfect. A game that will never be forgotten for those who have played it as a child until now still want to play this game.

Movie – Scarface [REVIEW] – The World Is Yours

IMDB Rating: 8,3/10
Genre: Crime, Drama
Director: Brian De Palma
Writer: Oliver Stone
Stars: Al Pacino, Michelle Pfeiffer, Steven Bauer


I played the game before on PlayStation 2’s, Scarface: The World Is Yours. The game model is exactly same as Grand Theft Auto. However, this is more exciting than Grand Theft Auto. Although I was finished, I still play it even on my PC. The movie also I watched when childhood. However, when compared with the game is very different. Scarface: The World Is Yours is a sequel to the film.

Tony

“Scarface,” tells about the year 1980 in May. Fidel Castro has just opened a port of Mariel in Cuba. His goal is to gather his members with his relatives in America. Recorded 125,000 Cuban refugees arrived in Florida and among them 25,000 criminals. Antonio ‘Tony’ Montana (Al Pacino) and his friend Manny Ribera (Steven Bauer) get permission to stay in Miami after successfully killing Rebenga (Roberto Contreras) for Omar Suarez (F. Murray Abraham).

Omar then asks Tony to trade cocaine with a Columbia merchant and Tony manages to do so. Tony brings the money and cocaine at once. Tony and Manny then had the opportunity to meet Frank Lopez (Robert Loggia), a drug dealer and Omar’s boss. Tony also fell in love with Elvira Hancock (Michelle Pfeiffer), a Frank woman. Frank eventually recruited Tony and Manny to become his members.

Movies mafia indeed no longer underestimated its existence. Especially the actor is Al Pacino. Al Pacino acting in this movie is very cool. Describes a very arrogant, cunning, evil, and criminal nature. Al Pacino is the main actor in this movie. So do the supporting actors like Steven Bauer and others. However, Al Pacino is the main star. Al Pacino was interviewed in another talk show. He was asked, “Who is the character of the film you have ever played and which one of you favorite the most?” Al Pacino replied, “I prefer to play Tony from Scarface.”

Although this is a classic movie, this film portrays a real human is. Tony is described as a greedy person and always wants something more. Scarface shows that no matter what human behavior, humans are still blessed to love those around them. However, Tony here just assumes that all can be solved with money.

Machine Gun

This film is purely a lot of the ‘F’ word in it. Probably countless, similar to the Goodfellas movie that many say ‘F’. However, this film teaches us that money never solves the problem. In fact, the happiness and togetherness can’t be bought with money. The happiness is only in the hearts of every human being, however our circumstances and wherever happiness is always there and never replaced with money.


Overall, this film in all aspects is very good indeed. Starting from the theme of lifting drug dealers and a little mafia theme until the lessons we can take from watching this movie. Al Pacino is the star of this movie.
