It's just the full package. Only game that comes close is another PS3 exclusive that is Uncharted 2. Metal Gear Solid is a story based game that is super fun when you play. They do a AWESOME job to sell you that you're in the game. The graphics are top notch, and still might be the best on a console (close again with Uncharted 2). But the story to this game is by far the best in any game, the voice acting is magnificent and you will not want to put this game down. If you hate long no playing periods, 1 or 2 times a hour in length than this might not be your cup of tea. The cut-scenes are sweet in my opinion, I love it. This is an interactive movie that you never want to stop. And once you're done, you want to get back on!
Brilliant, play this game with an open mind. I own a PS3 and 360, and this is as good as it gets in story telling. Knowing the MGS franchise helps, but isn't a have to have. Just if you feel lost, don't think the story sucks or is confusing. Some things will fly by your head, like past characters making a come back and so forth. After you play this game, get Uncharted 2 and you will play the two best console games to ever be produced. Please stop thinking anyone cares about console wars, a great game is a great game. Sony hit the jackpot with their exclusives, they took some gambles and they paid off. I am telling you, if you're like me and you just like video games, you don't care about the systems name, TRY this game out. I remember when I played it first, I thought it was a POS cause I was lost in the controls for the first 30-60 minutes. The story got me hooked, I just was mad I couldn't do things right. After a small time of getting your learning curb up, you wont put this game down.

Amazing graphics, excellent voice acting, great stealth gameplay (when it does happen) and great story. The only thing I would warn against is that if you don't like to watch cut scenes that sometimes extend the length of a feature movie, then this game may not be for you.

I was not a follower of the Metal Gear saga before buying this game, that being said, this became one of my top three games of all time. There were so many jaw dropping moments, I came away floored.
Must own, must play. Will not disappoint even if not a fan of the Metal Gear series.
