I am sorry but i don't know what Konami was thinking with this metal gear. This series was never about hack and slash it was about stealth and skill. There is no skill required, if you can mash buttons you win. Truly a sad sad turn for this company.

This game was a nightmare, absolutely terrible. This game was easily one of the most aggravating and idiotic titles I have ever played. First go through I attempted it on normal, but the mechanics to the game are far too challenging for someone (like myself) who wanted a quick adrenaline ride through of the game. Halfway through the game I was forced to start over on easy, and STILL found parts of the game to be borderline ridiculous....reminiscent of Ninja Gaiden. In fact, I cannot even accurately describe how frustrating it is without violating a few language rules from Game Fly. While it had some cool parts, mainly parts that I didn't actually play, just cut scenes, it was mostly a tedious and boring button mashing game. I got all the way to the very last boss and was faced with gameplay mechanics and boss fight mechanics that had me nearly punching holes in the wall, throwing my controller down and shutting off the xbox I am officially done with this piece of trash. I will send it back into game fly ASAP and get on with my life. I hope nobody ever has the unfortunate idea to think (as I did), I loved Metal Gear Solid, this should be good too! You will kick yourself in the butt as I have. This game was so bad I will not even touch another Konami title after this, I am 100% done.
