  1. May have been the first game to blaze the "stealthy action" trail, but the irony is that more recent PC offerings (such as "Thief") have since done it better, which leaves this port showing its age.
  2. In the six hours that it takes to finish Metal Gear Solid, there is little more than an hour's interaction.

    For those unfamiliar with the title, this is a chance to check out one of the better console games ever made, warts and all.
  4. If you're not caught up in the latest deathmatch FPS, and are willing to overlook some graphic glitches, Metal Gear Solid is a challenge worth picking up.

Very few gamesA revolutionary exercise in both gameplay and storytelling. Simply put, one of the best (and most important) games ever made. Very few games have as many memorable and emotionally tense set-pieces as those that are found throughout this game, and the boss battles still hold up as some of the best in video game history, really only arguably surpassed by its own sequels (specifically, MGS3). In short, this is a classic in every sense of the word, and an experience that no one should ever miss out on. (In regards to the specifics of the PC version: The addition of the VR missions is awesome and endlessly fun, but this game merits a gamepad, without a doubt. Go pick up some cheap usb wired controller (used 3rd party 360 wired controllers are a surprisingly good bet), and play this game correctly. Only other gripe about this version is that all the FMV's are not visible; that might just be my computer/copy though.) Full Review »

Un autentico juegazo por la gran historia que tiene detrás por la jugabilidad. Personaje muy, muy carismático y jefes auténticamente sublimes cada uno de ellos. Revolucionario en su día por las mecánicas de sigilo. Una puta joya que emociona y mucho cuando lo acabas. Full Review »

    + Particular attention to detail in the world and mechanics
    + Game forces the player to use all mechanics on offer in new ways
    ? Some questionable gameplay design in difficult moments
    - Controls and interactions are often terrible and difficult to wrangle
    - PC version of Psycho Mantis makes the player use the keyboard and mouse...
