Summary: I like the concept of this game. I really do. You make tactical moves using cards from your deck. Over the course of the game you will obtain new and more powerful cards and can build your own deck to suit your needs. The problem is, the game does a terrible job of explaining how it all works. It will throw you helpful tips in between missions but it'll usually tell you something very vital many mission after you needed it.
Summary: First off let me just say that I love the MGS series and i thought MGS 3 was one of the best games to come out in a long time. The problem with this game is the card based crap, The developers should of just made it like the other MGS series. This game just continues to become more frusturating the farther you go into it. Why the hell is it taking you so ling because it takes about 15 minutes to kil 2 guys.
Summary: I bought this game at an airport. At first I was excited thinking it was going to be on par with the other metal gear games. To my surprise, this game is nothing like the previous ones. The card based play is slow, boring, and lacks the continuity of the other games. If you think it's going to be like the others don't waste your money. Needless to say, that flight was boring, I actually opted to read the United airlines flight magazine instead.
Summary: what you have here is a great portable system and a great game francise,so why is it that when they made a metel gear game for the PSP they didn't make a MG game with classic gameplay,which WOULD HAVE been a hit,but take a card based formula? I don't see the DS coming out with a Mario game with card based gameplay...
Summary: This is a review from someone who had never played a card game, so if you are a (...) munch card game fan you don't need to read this. I have played just about every incarnation of Metal Gear from the first NES game to the GB versions. After MGS2 I had lost a little faith in the series but MGS3 brought me right back into the fold. So I bought Acid for my PSP even though I had never played a card game before. What can I say? The story seemed fine. The visuals were fresh.
Summary: Metal Gear Acid PSP is essentially a turn-based stratagy game, using action cards. This is not, as i thought, Metal Gear Solid as it was on PS2. However, once you get used to the concepts, it is an addictive and fun game to play. Although it lacks the real time action of metal gear, the plot is still there, which twists and reveals as the game advances.
Pros: Portable Metal gear solid
Cons: Not quite what you would expect, turn based strategy
Conclusion: If you have played the other metal gear series on the ps2, you will be dissapointed with this game. Very different from the originals (like a game of chess). Graphics are ok, but the storyline is pretty crap!
