5.0 out of 5 stars Video game perfection., June 18, 2006
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Metal Gear Solid (Video Game)
The Metal Gear Solid series is one of the greatest series of video games ever made and this is where it all started.

From the story, to the graphics, and to the music and settings, this game will amaze you. The production values and quality of this game are tremendous.

And the gameplay?

Brilliant! As those Guiness guys would say...

The key to this game is stealth and not all out running and gunning. If you fight upwards of two guys at a time, you will die. Its pretty much that simple.

But to help you in your stealth mission is a boatload of cool gadgets that would make James Bond blush. You got silenced handguns and machine guns. Thermal goggles. Night vision goggles. Mine detectors. And the simple yet fun cardboard boxes.

Every item in this game has its own special and unique uses from ketchup to cigarettes.

And the best part of this game are the boss battles. Each boss is truly unique, memorable, and a joy to fight. You will have a blast from Psycho Mantis to the Ninja to the climatic battle vs the towering Metal Gear.

This game was voted as the greatest Playstation game of all time by both IGN and Gamespot and for good reason. It is simply one of the best games ever made and already a timeless classic.

Actually, Metal Gear for the MSX2 is where it all started. Sorry I am a HUGE MGS fan.
