So I am not amazed but not disappointed in this installment for Kojima and Metal Gear. Yea it drifts away from the espionage and tactical responses we normally see but it is a more well put together Hack & Slash. I thought the display of graphics (which kojima is always good at) were top notch but the camera.... my goodness the camera lol. All in All it was short and a little out of control but the story was ok, it had too many things going on when there didn't need to be and the story for each villain was a little choppy. Minus that and the fact you got to see a special character toward the end (made me very happy) it became a better game and the bosses after learning how to fight them were fun. Id replay this a few times and therefore it gets an 8 out of 10. It scores high for me because I own all of the games involved in this franchise, but for others thats up too you. HOPKINS86

I own all the previous Metal Gear Games from every console. I was expecting a stealth ninja game and it was a bit more hack & slash. Which isn't a bad thing. This game does A LOT of things right. The only bad part was the camera (at times) would mess me up. Other than that this game is a SOLID 9 and a great run off of the Metal Gear Franchise. Graphics are very well polished. Gameplay is extremely addictive and VERY easy to grasp. Hard Mode is challenging but not too challenging. Story was superb. I pre-ordered this one and picked it up at the midnight release & I don't regret it one bit. Solid game. A must rent and for any Metal Gear Fan it's a must buy to add to the collection. 9/10

After playing this game for a two days I have come up and while I was upset over all this is a good game. Forget the slow moving sneak idea. That's pretty much gone. You're left with this hack in slash ninja game that doesn't do a great job of explaining how to attack properly.
This game a solid rent but give it a couple days before you return it. Figure out all the combine skills and forget it's a Metalgear game.
