Summary: Okay I bought this game a week ago and if you look at the time stamp thats a long time i knew about the game and ignored it. I finally wanted to get a game to play on my psp and since i tend to only play puzzle type games i chose this since it was a puzzle-ish game within the world of metal gear. Lets start off with my description of the game. This will help those you are on the fence decide if they want it or not.

Summary: To all the people who are complaining about how they wanted an action game instead of a card-based strategy game, please do some research on a game before you lay down $50 for it or even $240 for a console. Now, for those who know what they're getting in to, I loved this game. I do like card and strategy games, which I found this one to be very solid (no pun intended). But what really one me over was the cards themselves.
Summary: If you are fan of MGS, this is must have game. Is very smart that card based game. People complain about how much time to pass a mission and all, You just have to get used to. First mission I died at least 10 times before I pass, but soon as you understand the cards, things go a lot smoother. I guess is good that I have patient.
Summary: I love this game. Its alot different than the previous Metal Gears but that contains alot of the appeal, to me at least. It didnt take long at all to get used to the new card based game structure. Its one of those rare games that creates a challenge without frustrating to crap out of you. If you like a good card based military game, this is for you. Theres alot of history and character apperances from the previous Metal Gear games as well, which is a nice bonus.
Summary: see people, this game isnt sopposed to be a sequal or a continuation of SOLID games. it is only THEMED MGS, and can be played if just about any game were applied. take GTA. replace FAMAS with AK-47, USP with Colt .45, and Rations with 'ice cream', if you know what i mean. most people would shudder at that fact, but face it; its a game of chess here, i tense up as much as i do here as i did in MGS 1 and 2.
Summary: i guess 'turn based stratagy', 'strategic battle cards' and 'card decks' werent big enough clues that this wasnt the adverage metal gear title. Look, this is a great game. i am proud to say that i have clocked in my 24th hour and i havent even beaten it yet.(i dont even like card based games either) if you even remotely like metal gear you will love this title.
Summary: For all you PSP owners that are MGS fans a game called Metal Gear SOLID PSP is coming out-i don`t know any details about the story,characters or if it is a sequal or prequal to the MGS series-I do know that it is not a Card Strategy game like Metal Gear AC!D.It would be interesting what story it uses like who do you play-Solid Snake,Jack(Raiden) or possibly Big Boss-or is it a remake of a previous MGS title-Or is gonna be a side Story like MG-AC!
Summary: Alot of the people who said it was bad, had no idea what they were talking about. People buy this game and dont do any reasearch and therefore expect it to be like the other metal gears. Well it isnt but that dosnt make it bad. one guy for instance said it was bad cause you cant get used to the gameplay and had to use strategies" alright, just cause your bad at something doesnt make it bad.
