Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
17 September 2010
Excerpt: The Metal Gear Solid franchise has been key in my development as a gamer. It's the first franchise I loved and loved so much I was willing to pre-order months in advance just for the reassurance that there was a copy that was mine . It is still hard for me to make a top-ten list of my favorite games of all time without making half of them Metal Gear .
Excerpt: There are very few franchises on the Playstation consoles / portable machines that put fans into a frenzy as much at the Metal Gear Solid series. Designed to continue the story after Portable Ops, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker for the Playstation Portable picks up four years after the events of that game (and 10 years after MGS: Snake Eater).
Conclusion: Just when you thought Metal Gear Solid was over and done with, Hideo Kojima and the folks in his Konami studios have once again outdone themselves with this one. Clocking at just under 20 hours (single player), Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is an exquisite game with high production values, airtight playability, balanced gameplay, and a fitting story to boot.
Conclusion: This will be the game that everyone suggests years from now when people can finally pick up a PSP for cheap. Time will not dull the impact of what Hideo Kojima and his team have made, but the sooner you play it, the sooner you'll understand why.
Excerpt: Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker puts us yet again into the shoes of Naked Snake during the Cold War. The original Boss is dead by his hands and he now heads up Militaires sans Frontieres, the Military without Borders. They are a small band of ex-military ex-patriots; a Cold War precursor of Blackwater. They are well-trained and underfunded – that is – until their next job comes in.
Conclusion: A fantastic title that shows off the power of the system as well as the possibilities open to further developers. It proves once and for all that portable systems can stand beside consoles.
Summary: This latest PSP installment picks up where Metal Gear Solid 3 for the PS2 leaves off as players take control of the famed Naked Snake. Taking place in 1974, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker features original game design, story and scenario by Hideo Kojima.
