  1. Horrendous difficulty spikes aside, Peace Walker is great. It has all the blisteringly beautiful visuals, impressive production values and rewarding stealth gameplay you expect from a Metal Gear game.

    I think critics, in their respective spheres, give praise to games made for their spheres since nothing comes their way. This game is I think critics, in their respective spheres, give praise to games made for their spheres since nothing comes their way. This game is horrible. The controls are annoying-they do not work on the psp. Story? Nothing special, but it is better than most psp titles (which is not saying much.) Not worth full retail price and already overrated. Had the control scheme been made more player friendly, this could have been a fun title. Sadly, all the control options simply make this game a bore, taking all the fun out of "stealth," causing a run and gun game instead. Buy the siphon filter games for better graphics and better controls. Full Review »

    This game is pretty genius. Controls work great, the storyline is intricate and amazing as always, the graphics are flawless, and withThis game is pretty genius. Controls work great, the storyline is intricate and amazing as always, the graphics are flawless, and with headphones on, you could swear that the sound is coming from a Boss theatre sound system. These things kept me playing the game for quite sometime. However, I personally found the game difficulty becoming increasingly easier as the story progressed. This was due to all the weapons and items I kept unlocking, and also due to the vast amount of health recovery items and supply markers I could carry all at once. The enemy alert system has also become much more forgiving this time around. Alot of times, I found myself able to beat a mission pretty easily even if I purposely tripped a crap load of alarms. Even if I did get out flanked a heated firefight, as long as I kept using rations, curry and supply markers, I was damn near invincible. Hell, there was one time that I got so tired of not dying, I just layed there and let the enemy shoot me, yet I still wouldn't die! JUST DIE SNAKE!!! I mean, what's the point of trying to sneak around if it's so easy to progress through all the levels? The long over dramatic cut scenes are nice, and I love a good story line, but those are not the only things I look for in a game. I WANT TO BE CHALLENGED! And that does NOT mean that I want to fight another tank with a ridiculously long life span on extra ops! Because that doesn't make the game more challenging either! It just makes it so that I have to spend about 45 minutes to kill this particular boss instead of the regular 10 minutes. Basically, what I'm trying to say is that after I beat the game the first time, I had no reason to keep playing due to the easy difficulty. The only other way to find some form of challenge after that was to restart the game completely from scratch. This problem could have been solved if they added a difficulty selection option. This is why the game gets an 8 from me. Great game overall...but just not for me, because I am a gamer who is always looking for variety and challenge- something that this game cannot deliver.
