  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.

    While it was easy to shut off the first game only to come back later and forget where you were, MGA2 keeps the objectives close by and your motivation memorable.

    A stylish and unqiue game definitely worthy in the highly successful franchise. Its frustrating, yet successful card system, combined with challenging gameplay, excellent visuals, and funky soundtrack make a satisfying package for fans of the original Acid, strategy games, or something completely different.
  4. While the game still strays from its console roots, the good story, interesting characters and fun extras are enough for returning gamers to go back for more.
  5. Metal Gear Ac!d 2 is a not only a sequel that is better than its predecessor, it is also one of the better games on the PSP.
  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.

    Beautifully done tactics game. It doesn't need a job system like FFT; the gameplay is that fun, deep and good. The graphics are Beautifully done tactics game. It doesn't need a job system like FFT; the gameplay is that fun, deep and good. The graphics are beautiful and the idea to go with a comic book style was brilliant. Also, it's ideal for portable gaming, as it's a turn based affair, and it's packed with content, including cinematics from Snake Eater as well as a 'quick-play' duel, where you can take on enimies from past iterations if you only have a few minutes and you don't want to start a new mission. Plus, there're multiple difficulty settings; the game is very replayable. On a side note, after Old Snake dies in MGS4, there's no reason why David Hayter can't live on as Snake in the side-story Acid series. I loved Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops, but I'm all for Metal Gear Acid 3. Expand

There is much more life in it, the story is better and there are more options then ever. Already played it over 100 hours now, And I stil play it, course it's a lot of fun, and the grafic is strange, but makes the game look beautiful, easier, better and well made. Almost 3 times better then the first MGA game. Expand
