Not my kind of game

Summary: To start, I was into MGS for the story and for the story alone. The stories of this franchise always interested me, but I never dug the gameplay. For one thing it was always too shallow for me and too frustrating to play. This game follows the path of all the other games, and that can be good or bad depending on what you think of the Metal Gear Franchise.
Summary: Was a good game. I liked its format with the team based gameplay and the original controls but the story still seemed to falter at the end and felt cut off from a real conclusion. Only needed one play through but still gonna keep it for collections sake.
Summary: I made the mistake of buying Portable Ops Plus first instead of this one. Now, I own this one, and boy what a difference! First off, I must admit that the game is much, much more enjoyable when there is an actual story to follow. It just helps to keep your interest, and helps you feel like your accomplishing something besides just wandering around at random. For this review, I'll just cover the basics of what most reviews do. Graphics, Sound, Control, and Replayability.
Summary: I'll get to the point very quickly. This game is not as fun as others in the Metal Gear series. The problem isn't the game though, it's the PSP. Instead of Sony putting two analog controllers on the PSP, you have to alternate between it and the digital pad. This was a poor implementation by the developer. God of War: COO is the standard by which PS2 games should be ported or translated over to the PSP in every way.
Summary: While not as smooth as I would have expected a MGS game to play on the PSP, portable ops is still a solid experience. The cut scenes are great although they aren't in game. Go check out meta critic for a more in dept reviews.
Summary: Well I bought the game close to a month ago and so far haven't beaten it. Its not that its not fun because it is, its just hard. If you are thinking of buying this game do it. Its a lot of fun, however you should try to get a strategy guide for it.
Summary: The game is fairly different from recent MGS titles on the Playstation in that it involves more skill and strategy. At first it's a bit woozy, but once you get the hang of it, it's really quite fun.
