Excerpt: Metal Gear Peace Walker PSP takes the best aspects of the franchise, and not only provides satisfying stealth-action game play but also delivers a worthwhile story. Its understated approach made the narrative believable and grounded in some sense of realism, letting the emotional links to past Metal Gear games to provide the knockout blows...
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.
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.
Pros: Great style and innovative use of breaking the fourth wall. Well done script and a lot of extra content for your money.
Cons: Terrible gameplay mechanics and repetative level design really damage the overall product.
Excerpt: Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, a portable addition to the celebrated stealth series, is a rich, fully fledged Metal Gear Solid game with top-notch production values and masses of content, packed onto the PSP. It complements a great-looking stealth-action campaign with a strong co-op offering and bite-sized challenge missions, framed with a neatly presented resource management system in which you establish a private army.
Pros: High production values, Great soundtrack, Plenty of diverse activities that invite extended play, Intense boss fights
Cons: Occasionally fiddly controls, No checkpoints in the long story missions
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 .
Conclusion: On pourrait parler pendant encore un bon moment de Peace Walker, des dossiers d'instructions à lire avant chaque mission afin de savoir comment bien aborder celles-ci, de la présence de Hideo Kojima lui-même dans le jeu, mais ce qu'il y a à en retenir est qu'il vous en donne pour votre argent. Bien plus que Metal Gear Solid 4, qui perd de sa superbe si on le compare à cet opus PSP.
Pros: Metal Gear Solid 5 dans les mains !, Réalisation graphique époustouflante, Fourmille de bonnes idées, Durée de vie conséquente, Mode Co-op très bien fichu et addictif
Cons: Ça manque de moments cultes ?, Un déroulement par à-coups, Absence de "vraies" cinématiques en 3D, On ne peut plus ramper, Le ad-hoc, pas accessible pour tout le monde
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: No sooner than landing in the South Pole on our recent Pole to Pole excursion did we then need to dust down our snow laden flight jacket and take to the skies once again with Flight Simulator X: Discover Europe. As with the previous First Class Simulations add-ons Discover Europe is all about the experience.
Excerpt: Before fanboys bemoan the less than perfect rating given to the latest instalment of Metal Gear from Kojima Productions, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker was judged for overall experience for gamers as a whole. Released June 18th, loyal fans will probably have already purchased and completed MGS: PW up to and including the Monster Hunter levels. This is for the rest of us; those who know of the series and are wary of the fanatic loyalty it inspires.
Summary: The sultans of stealth, Kojima Productions have resurrected their genre-defining Metal Gear series on PSP this month with Peace Walker, a ‘70s-set skulking epic that riffs on the classic Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater PS2 sequel and the equally stellar Portable Ops on PSP. Thrusting you into utterly absorbing campaign, Peace Walker plonks you in Naked Snake’s war-torn combat boots once more in package that strings a solid single-player experience together with two to...
