  1. Added maps and online features make the multiplayer aspect of the game noticeably improved, but if you're more into single-player sneaking approach this with caution. [Dec 2007, p.159]
  2. 75
    The budget price will keep gamers feeling satisfied for their twenty bucks and the addition of new maps and options should keep the action fresh. A lack of true single-player does tarnish it a bit but for the price you really shouldn’t expect much.
  3. While Portable Ops Plus doesn't offer an incredible amount of new things, it does do an exceptional job at recapturing the elements we loved in the first title.
  4. If you nailed the original game's single-player, there's not nearly enough in Plus to warrant a second purchase. [Apr 2008, p.109]
  5. Stick to the first game. [Mar 2008, p.80]
  6. 60
    If you can't get enough Portable Ops online, Ops + is just about worth it for the extra character limit. For everyone else, save those pennies and dimes for MGS4.
  7. We're positive you'll want to avoid MGS Portable Ops Plus: a lacklustre single-player mode, unfriendly interface, and minimal new content make it comprehensively inferior to its predecessor.

    This is a great expansion pack! And whats awesome about it is that it doesn't require the original game (it is indeed standalone).
    I'd say

    I'd say get it if you're either really serious about MGS: PO, or if you don't want to bother with the story of the original portable ops and want to jump straight into the action (though I wouldn't recommend doing that).
    Get it since its on PSN and in stores! :D
    It has great gameplay and graphics + great controls.

    Is it well-built? Sure. The game has a slick presentation, just like the last game. The controls, while annoying as ever, are forgiving Is it well-built? Sure. The game has a slick presentation, just like the last game. The controls, while annoying as ever, are forgiving enough to be learned in time. The graphics are nice, but not spectacular. Basically any category this game attempts, it does well, but not much above average. And that's the game in a nutshell. Expand
