    Im a fan of the metal gear solid games. So I expected the polish that come with this series. The story was also far simpler and therefore better but you could sense this was forced apon kojima by the systems limitations hence the comic book cut-scenes. The controls however let the whole thing down, I can't explain anymore than saying they just feel wrong which is something that the gameIm a fan of the metal gear solid games.

The controls however let the whole thing down, I can't explain anymore than saying they just feel wrong which is something that the game developers must have noticed. The fact your are PSP also doesn't help and this game can't help the troubled platform. Expand

    The controls for MGS are not good on PSP. The setting is in a lot of open forest area which isn't good for sneaking, the AI realism, or the size of the PSP screen, and the darker color scheme. The levels are like MGS:3 which were not tight. This removed a lot of the pre-programmed camera angles forcing you to move the camera yourself. Camera control is a contant hindrance in the game.

You can be right in front of guys and they barely see you. You can walk out in front of someone and not know whats going on because of the camera. I'm going to be honest, I can barely aim my gun. The story doesn't start out strong and cut scenes are like an animated graphic novel. Here we have another MGS set in a time that doesn't have a lot of advanced technology, which was half the point of MGS1 and 2. This game also has an annoying menu system. You can't just play through, but you need to equip several things and switch characters and gear ahead of time. So far, MGS: Acid2 has been my favorite PSP game. I don't think MGS was meant to be on the PSP like the console games. This is a non-essential game. Expand

    This comes from a MGS fan. This game is not MGS at all. It smells very Japanese, RPG elements that tries to make you grind, silly co-op, silly boss battles similar to Monster Hunter (fighting mechanic monsters) and most of the time, stupid cutscenes. Cutscenes are stupid not because of the cartoonish style but the way characters are written and voiced over (in English). If you are lookingThis comes from a MGS fan. This game is not MGS at all.

If you are looking for more MGS, avoid this game and instead see a Youtube all story video. Expand

    A good game. The presentation is ok and I like the drawn cutscenes. The voice-acting is good and the story is enjoyable. The gameplay was great and I adored mother base. I liked how replayable it is because of the missions. The soundtrack is probably one of the best in MGS. Now, my problems is that nothing is explained, you can't change weapons during missions, the bosses are uninspiredA good game. The presentation is ok and I like the drawn cutscenes.

    From the top-notch characterizations to the ethical indecision of its cast, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is a significant step forward for the series's maestro.
  2. Do not wait for the PSP2. Buy a copy of this game and the hardware necessary to play it as soon as is humanly possible. You're not going to see a better marriage of technical know-how, narrative inventiveness and holy-crap-I'm-playing-a-console-game-on-a-handheld-level awe on the system.
  3. Fans of the series will like this installment and newcomers to Metal Gear Solid like me will enjoy it as well.
