This review is from: Metal Gear Solid (Video Game)
Metal Gear Solid is probably the best game I've ever played. It's not just another action game, its got some really innovative stuff in it. The biggest thing about this game is the fact that you have to be stealthy. This isn't just another game full of mindless gunfights; if you charge into every enemy you see, you won't make it far. Also, MGS has one of the best video game stories ever, and it has great voice talents to back it up. The boss fights are cool too because a lot of them require some neat strategies. For those of you who are fans of first person shooters, don't worry, there's still plenty of weapons and gadgets in MGS. The only complaint I've ever heard about this game is that is's too short. That may be true, but Resident Evil 2 is even shorter and it didn't get critisism over it. Besides, you'll have to play through multiple times to see both endings and use the extras you get for beating the game. Basically, MGS has been setting the standard for games like Syphon Filter, and I think it always will.
