This game really doesn't need to be filed under the name Metal Gear. The stealth parts of the game, just feel tacked on. I'm glad for that. I didn't rent it for the stealth. I rented it for the action. There is plenty of that. I started off on the normal setting, but reached the cat that would whoop my butt over, and over, and over again. So I got fed up and switched to easy. Still lots of fun, but blocking actually seemed to work.
Graphics: Pretty good to kind of weak. Cut scenes were enjoyable to laughable.
Game Play: Action, Action, Action. Followed by a delay after each letting you know your score. This is lame, as it stops you from advancing to the next fun as you wait for the score. Cheap deaths will happen in boss fights. Boss fights are some what cool, and some are just terrible. Using the sword is fun and makes for some good times.
The Bad: The Camera can be brutal. You will be going after a bad guy and the camera will just switch and you run the wrong way, or get hit while you try to get the camera back on line. Other times it will not focus on an important situation, and you might just die for no good reason.
Verdict. Up in the air on it. Play it on easy to enjoy the game. It is a fun game for the most part. Just accept it as action, not stealth, and enjoy the ride.

Beat almost all Metal gear games and every platinum game since mad world and love the two companies - MGR didn't do it for me. i'm personally glad I only rented it, but everyone should form their own opinion.
