Summary: This game is unbelievable. The duration, the controls, the graphics, the beautifully hand drawn cut scenes, the story, the outside of game micromanagement + tactical battles, the reference to Dr. Strangelove - this game is really one of a kind. There is so much game jam packed into this one umd that you will forget that you own any others.
Summary: I have been waiting quite a while for this game to come out. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots was without a doubt one of the WORST games I have ever played. It almost killed the entire Metel Gear franchise for me. When I first heard about Peace Walker I thought I'd give it a try. Much to my relief it is a real good game. The setting is great. The jungles reminded me of Snake Eater, one of the best Metal Gear games. The plot is well written and script well acted.
Summary: I read that the boss battles are so difficult in this game that you are encouraged to play them (co-op) with the help of a friend, but I was able to complete all 33 main missions without help and I'm not the greatest gamer. But I am no stranger to MGS and have played all the games, I even bought a gamecube just to play Twin Snakes, and I think this game is a great addition but possibly not the most accessible.
Summary: Having been personally disappointed with Metal Gear Solid 2:Substance and Metal Gear Solid 3:Snake Eater I've been looking for a proper Metal Gear fix for a while and having not owned a Ps4 this seemed like my best bet. This game takes what was good about Metal Gear Solid 3, that is the more open and varied enviroments and ditches that horrible schlock and campiness that took away from the experience.
Summary: I love Metal Gear Solid. But I'll review this fairly. I gave this game 5 stars because it delivers stealth, a good amount of action and a great follow up story to the best (in my opinion) MGS3. Here the player has control of big boss and initially sets out on mission based plots, so it isn't a full run on game. But it has replay value over days worth. Its lengthy for a good 7 hour story, but also has goodies like building your own metal gear.
Summary: It's a great entry in the series in terms of story, graphics, and gameplay, however--and this is a BIG however--the game suffers from constant gameplay interruptions. And I'm not talking about long cut scenes (I love those!), I'm talking about how the missions are too short, and there is WAYYYY too much micro-managing between said short missions. It's really quite annoying. It's all relatively optional, but it really throws the overall experience off for me.
