Despite the name, a solid game

Milo Price, Amazon
30 July 2010
  • Summary: This game is surprisingly true to the stealth spirit that appears in the main Metal Gear Solid series. It's basically a turn-based miniatures game, except with stealth factored in. In true Metal Gear fashion, it is possible to just run through guns a-blazing in most cases, but stealth is rewarded with faster completion times, greater chances of success, and cards at the end of the level.

Great game at a slow pace

J. Raymond, Amazon
24 February 2010
  • Summary: This is a fun and interesting game. I agree with the other reviewers that the pace of the game can get tedious but that's not always a bad thing. It is good to have a few games that can be played at your leisure. If you are looking for an adrenaline rush this is not the game for you but if you want a good strategy game that requires some thought and planning this is a great choice.

Metal Gear meets Final Fantasy

G. Williams "game geek", Amazon
1 February 2009
  • Summary: It's a pretty decent game if you come into it with a "Final Fantasy/Dragon Quest" turn-based frame of mind. But you will be quite disappointed as I imagine many people have been when they first bought it a while ago. Call it bad marketing on Konami's part which is unfortunate seeing as how the PSP has been suffering in sales quite a bit lately. Anyways the game is okay although the explanations for its gameplaying style sucks!

Worth a second examination

Curtis Mitchell, Amazon
15 April 2007
  • Summary: When Metal Gear Ac!d was first released, it was the subject of scorn from the majority of Metal Gear fans. Excited by the prospect of a Metal Gear game on their new Playstation Portables, fans were dejected to discover that this wasn't really a Metal Gear game at all. In reality it was a spinoff title that didn't even exist within the same continuity. Worst of all, it wasn't even "Tactical Espionage Action"...it wasn't even an action game!

Great game but do your reserch

Mr. Cairo, Amazon
26 August 2005
  • Summary: This is a great game but do your reserch all the reveiws say they didn't think it was card based when I want a game I make sure its something I want to buy. Besides this game is great if you have enough patince to sit through the great storyline (wich you should if you mant a stealth game)

Hey it's MGS.. But tiny... and... better?

The One Bing, Amazon
19 August 2005
  • Summary: Just to start off: I'm not a kid. I just used the form so I didn't have to sign up.... Now... This game is amazing. The graphics of the character models are just some of the best on the PSP. Now... Don't listen to all those people that say "Oh, it's horrible, it's not even a shooter!" Duh. Apparently they've never played the Metal Gear Series. It's a STEALTH game.... This game has a perfect blend of gameplay and storytelling.

Metal Gear Ac!d, A different Direction

Alaskan Drummer "Daniel", Amazon
1 June 2005
  • Summary: I am a huge fan of the Metal Gear Solid series, the three titles are easily my favorite PS games, so when I picked up AC!D, I was certainly hoping for something similar. I knew the game was turn based and used cards, It was still something quite foriegn to get used to. The other thing that disapointed me was the lack of cut scenes and voice acting, although I understand the PSP just can't muster the power for them all.

Metal Gear Tactics

M. R. Lopez, Amazon
29 May 2005
  • Summary: Final Fantasy Tactic meets Metal Gear meets Yugio. Everybody out there who have played the previos Metal Gear games will probably shy away from this title simply because it's a card based stragety/stealth game. The game is turn based, you must use your "cards" to move around the levels, use weapons, and interact with the environment. The gameplay itself is sometimes difficult and some of the missions are really, really, long.

This is NOT for Die-Hard Metal Gear Fans

S. Rhodes, Amazon
24 April 2005
  • Summary: Metal Gear Acid is quite different from any other Metal Gear game before it. Most of the time when a game in the series is "different" from the others, it's slapped on with a "For Die-Hard fans only." This isn't the case in Metal Gear Acid. This isn't for die-hard fans, but for tactical RPG fans. To put more simply, if you like Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy Tactics, this game should please you just fine.

A Must For Metal Gear Fans, But Not The Series Best

The One Bing, Amazon
14 April 2005
  • Summary: First off, this is not a normal Metal Gear. Nor is it an RPG. It is a turn based strategy game with a card collecting and battling element. Which is by no means a bad thing. The action is fun and ingenious, if a little slow at times. It still has all the character of a Metal Gear game, and a fantastic storyline. Metal Gear fans will be jarred at first but will soon find something tolove in Acid. I have three complaints however. 1)It's too difficult.
