  1. While the turn-based card battlin' combat might sound like the antithesis of edge-of-your-seat gaming, give Ac!d 2 a couple of hours of your undivided attention and I guarantee you'll be up to your eyes and ears in white-knuckle action.
  2. Whereas Metal Gear Acid faltered slightly in its attempt to branch the MGS franchise out into a bold new direction, Acid 2 absolutely nails the concept with engaging turn-based strategy gameplay, a refined interface, quicker pacing, stylized graphics and an abundance of replay value, among other noteworthy attributes.
  3. Tactical games never had it so good in the Ac!d series.
  4. 80
    It’s taken all the best bits of the first game, dressed them up, and created a game that both rookies and veterans will enjoy.
  5. Although condensed into portable form, Kojima Productions' immense production values, characterisation and narrative style has been carried across flawlessly.
  6. 75
    Alas, I guess if they removed the Metal Gear from this [game], then we wouldn't feel badly for calling it what it is: a decent, card-based strategy game that moves quickly and feels good, but is missing that real "x factor" to take it to the next level.
  7. Metal Gear Acid 2 is over the top, with its visuals and substance. Fans of the original will like the new additions and expansiveness over the first, but there isn’t enough here to draw haters of the first game to try it.
