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.
Excerpt: 1964 : The Boss, fondatrice de l'unité Cobra et "criminelle" ayant voulu porter atteinte à la sécurité de l'Union Soviétique, est tuée d'une balle par son propre disciple, ce dernier devenant ainsi un héros aux yeux des États-Unis. Il obtient par la même occasion le nom de code "Big Boss", qu'il avouera par la suite n'avoir jamais vraiment utilisé pour se désigner. Dix ans plus tard, c'est pourtant ce titre qui vient de nouveau tinter à ses oreilles.
Conclusion: While we miss the crazy bad guys and refined controls, Peace Walker definitely lives up to the Metal Gear name. Base management adds a deeper sense of growth to the experience and there’s plenty to come back to after you finish the story. If you’re a Metal Gear fan, borrow a PSP if you have to, but don’t pass up Peace Walker.
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.
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. Designed to continue the story after Portable Ops, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker for the Playstation Portable picks up four years after the events of that game (and 10 years after MGS: Snake Eater).
