The first part of this game, when you playing as Solid Snake on the tanker is great, but when they switch characters to the loser Raiden it all goes down hill. There are too many long cut scenes, too many unbelievable, lame charcters,and a way too confusing plot line. The overall game play was ok, but too many cut scenes and they should have let you play as Solid Snake through the whole game.
When i first played, i really liked it, i played it all the time. But now, it is just a very confusing game, and too much talk, and some cutscenes arent very good. I just dont like the ridiculous, futuristic stuff. And the japanese anime routine they pulled in it. The action can be cool at times, but slow. The gameplay isnt that great. There is too much physiylogical talk in it.
The game is still good, but there is some things in the game that are too long and not all that amazing.
