Summary: Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is as ambitious PSP game, and a worthy follow-up to previous entries. Snake is back, and with Hideo Kojima exploiting our political apprehension and love for espionage thrillers, Peace Walker easily offers one of the best experiences on Sony's handheld.
Pros: Terrific presentation, both visually and sonically, A long and involved storyline, Epic missions that warrant a friend's help
Cons: Finicky controls at time, Pesky and slow camera
Excerpt: Every generation, Hideo Kojima and his development team(s) at Konami consistently remind us that they know how to take advantage of the current hardware. They blew our minds with the first Metal Gear Solid on PSone, dazzled our senses with MGS2 and 3 on PS2, and reinvented stealth combat with the fourth edition for PS3. You wouldn’t think that Konami could – or even would attempt to – do the same thing on Sony’s handheld.
Excerpt: Yes, we may be ladies, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love us some Snake from Metal Gear Solid. So when we got a chance...
Pros: Metal Gear Solid design will appeal to fans of the game. Nice extras like the soundtrack and unlock code for Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker for PSP. Good sound quality and water-resistant to boot. Affordable price.
Cons: Controls can get frustrating to use if you keep hitting the wrong ‘small buttons.’ Design may not attract the ladies. Tends to get uncomfortable after long periods of time wearing them. Not Mac compatible. Would have liked a few more Metal Gear touches like re-skinned Walkman software.
