Excerpt: Once again Hideo Kojima has given MGS fans and PSP owners a game highly worth checking out. Its been over 2 years now since Metal Gear Solid 4 was released for the PS3, and a new MGS finally coming into view, this time for the PSP rather than Sony’s home consoles. Over the years the series have always been on the Playstation franchise, this is the 5th Metal Gear Solid game to be released on the PSP.
Pros: Stunning Visuals and Graphics, Great Voice acting, Play up to 2-6 players on Co-Op, Great Story and Boss Fights.
Cons: Fiddly controls depending on what style your playing the game on, One or Two Camera problems here and there.
Summary: Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is an interesting entry into the Metal Gear series. While adding new depth to the game on the PSP, Peace Walker adds an element many fans including myself would have loved to see in the game, and that’s co-op. Take your friends into missions and boss battles and enjoy the mayhem an extra set of eyes and weapons bring.
Conclusion: Comic Jumper is a game that seems to be a promising experience. Unfortunately, the core elements that constitute a good video game are very weak. Focusing too much on exponential features and rooting the game from a character idea rather than a gaming experience has let down Twisted Pixel’s reputation. I do however congratulate them on their comic creation and the efforts made to reward their fans.
Excerpt: Peace Walker is more than a game of two halves; it is a game of two cultures. It is the perfect Japanese PSP game, but the imperfect Western PSP game. We're told it began life as Metal Gear Solid 5, but was later condensed to fit Sony's portable console. Certainly, the plot bears all the hallmarks of a main Metal Gear yarn. Naked Snake, circa a Cold War-fuelled 1974, is the leader of a band of mercenaries called 'Militaires Sans Frontières', or Soldiers Without Borders.
Excerpt: The Metal Gear Solid franchise has been key in my development as a gamer. It's the first franchise I loved and loved so much I was willing to pre-order months in advance just for the reassurance that there was a copy that was mine . It is still hard for me to make a top-ten list of my favorite games of all time without making half of them Metal Gear .
Excerpt: There are very few franchises on the Playstation consoles / portable machines that put fans into a frenzy as much at the Metal Gear Solid series.
