Metal gear solid was one of the best games I ever played. It had some of the greatest action and strategy involvement that I had witnessed in any play station game... It even gave the possibility to complete it more than one time as you would gain special rewards depending on the difficulty you chose at the start. Also lots of the choices you make within the game decide what happens at certain parts. My favorite part in the game is where you have to fight psycho mantis.
It is a very tough battle.
I enjoyed hiding in boxes and escaping from guards. As the game is not just about run, shoot and kill. It also requires a lot of stealth. Other games you would like, perhaps, if you like MGS, are games such as; splinter cell, rainbow 6, etc. After I played Metal Gear Solid for the first time and received my bandana which gave me the ability to have infinite bullets, I read a website which told me about stealth. I was adamant that I wanted it so of course I tried my best to complete the game over again.
It is so satisfying to complete the game even once but twice was really fulfilling.
I would say it is easily
the best strategy game for the play station in my opinion anyway- as well as its sequels; metal gear solid 2, 'special missions', snake eater, etc. Although the game didnít last very long - the time it did last I had a superb time playing, and would advise any adamant strategy / sci-fi fans to get this now and give it a go. Itís similar to Tomb Raider in the sense you have to strategize as well as be quick and good at hard bosses etc.
The game took me about 2 - 3 days to complete, but I played it pretty hardcore. For a game rating id say that this game is easily 9/10. Possibly 10/10 but I donít want to over-rate it, as this is simply my opinion. The good thing about this game is that there are many walkthrough etc online to help you if you get stuck, just to give you that extra edge on the tricky parts. The only downside is that some of the bosses can be quite tricky, in particular the final boss.
Hope youíll enjoy this game!
