Metal Gear Acid - PSP

  • Conclusion: There's been a lot of talk about the pocket-playable Metal Gear. To be frank, it's a love it or hate it title. If you dig Pokémon, Yugi-oh, or Magic you'll adore Metal Gear Acid. If you prefer shooting to shuffling, then this may be the Metal Gear you can do without. I'm giving it four stars, as I love it, and card battle games, in general. Make no mistake, if you are looking for traditional Metal Gear stealth-action, please look elsewhere, or be sorely disappointed.
  • Pros: Metal Gear Acid is the most original game on the PSP, A bold step to take the Metal Gear franchise in a new direction, The PSP desperately need a turn-based release title, The card based combat is deep and compelling, Metal Gear Acid offers tons of replay, Metal Gear Acid is the most original game on the PSP, A bold step to take the Metal Gear franchise in a new direction, The PSP desperately need a turn-based release title, The card based combat is deep and compellin...
  • Cons: Um, it's a card game. No really, a stealth-action card game... yeah, Metal Gear fans may find this unholy concept burns like acid, Um, it's a card game. No really, a stealth-action card game... yeah, Metal Gear fans may find this unholy concept burns like acid

  • Excerpt: I went through a few phases when I caught wind of this game. The first phase came when I initially heard about it—1 went crazy over the idea of a Metal Gear game on the PSP. The second phase was when I found out it was card based. I admit, I was a bit skeptical at first and I was disappointed that Konami could possibly ruin such a great series. Fortunately, I was wrong. The final phase involved me renting the game and trying it out.

Metal Gear Acid – Review

GameCritics.com
12 July 2006
  • Excerpt: Metal Gear is undoubtedly one of videogaming's best-known franchises. The series is popularly credited with starting the stealth genre with Metal Gear Solid , one of the original PlayStation's runaway hits. It was an unquestionable smash that did much to strengthen Sony's cred with gamers. Bringing Snake back for the PS2 in the equally successful and controversial Sons of Liberty was another home run for both Sony and Konami. Clearly, the goal with Metal Gear Ac!

Metal Gear Ac!d

  • Excerpt: Let me get this out of the way: Metal Gear Ac!d is NOT a stealth action game. It's not a Hideo Kojima game that fits into the Solid series timeline. It is, though, an interestingly deep turn-based strategy title that uses a card-based means to provide some excellent action. And before you get too upset, the card-based strategy manages to work well within the stealth action that Solid Snake has always been famous for.
  • Pros: Looks great, Card-based strategy is a nice change in genre, Lots of cards to collect, Challenging, yet fun
  • Cons: Story and presentation is a bit odd at times, Card-based theme sure to turn some off

  • Excerpt: There’s a lot of reassuringly familiar names in the PSP launch line-up. And if you were to speculate that Metal Gear Acid had something to do with Hideo Kojima’s long-running sneak-‘em-up of a very similar name, you’d be on to something. However, Konami says the object with this version is to tailor the Metal Gear world to gaemplay that best reflects a handheld’s strengths.

Metal Gear Acid PSP Review

  • Excerpt: Some things just go great together. Chocolate and peanut butter. Football and cheerleaders. Britney Spears and your television’s mute button. And now, with Konami’s “Metal Gear Acid,” we have a new pairing for the ages: 3rd-person stealth action and strategy card games.
