  1. If you have never played this game before, I envy you. You are in for possibly the best gaming experience to date.

    All in all, despite the less than stellar PC graphics, Metal Gear Solid remains an intense gaming experience with a gripping story and heart-stopping action.

    Combining action and adventure isn't an easy thing to do, but Konami has pulled it off beautfiully with Metal Gear Solid.
  4. With the enhanced visuals, the wealth of gameplay provided by both MGS and VR Missions, and the simple fact that MGS is fantastic title in the first place makes this a pretty smart buy for any PC gamer.
  5. PC gamers who have had no prior exposure to this game will definitely want to take a look, as this is still the same great game it always was.
  6. It's also rather obvious that the developers realised towards the end of the game that it was going to be far too short, resorting to the old trick of forcing you to backtrack across large portions of the game world (no less than three times!) to make it seem longer.
  7. In the six hours that it takes to finish Metal Gear Solid, there is little more than an hour's interaction.

    I also like all the different weapons and items in the game. The graphics are great, but their mouths don't move when they talk' and their eyes don't really look like eyes. But the rest makes up for it!

    A revolutionary exercise in both gameplay and storytelling. Simply put, one of the best (and most important) games ever made. Very few gamesA revolutionary exercise in both gameplay and storytelling. Simply put, one of the best (and most important) games ever made. Very few games have as many memorable and emotionally tense set-pieces as those that are found throughout this game, and the boss battles still hold up as some of the best in video game history, really only arguably surpassed by its own sequels (specifically, MGS3). In short, this is a classic in every sense of the word, and an experience that no one should ever miss out on. (In regards to the specifics of the PC version: The addition of the VR missions is awesome and endlessly fun, but this game merits a gamepad, without a doubt. Go pick up some cheap usb wired controller (used 3rd party 360 wired controllers are a surprisingly good bet), and play this game correctly. Only other gripe about this version is that all the FMV's are not visible; that might just be my computer/copy though.) Expand

Un autentico juegazo por la gran historia que tiene detrás por la jugabilidad. Personaje muy, muy carismático y jefes auténticamente sublimes cada uno de ellos. Revolucionario en su día por las mecánicas de sigilo. Una puta joya que emociona y mucho cuando lo acabas. Expand

I played it in my early age and I could not understand the plot and that is why liked everything about especially ost. The game was revolutionary when it was released on ps one. Everyone who had ps one will say that this MGS is on their list. It is a masterpiece! Expand
