The absolute worst controls for any game I have ever played. Unimpressed by the graphics and dreary colors. Please explain why I can't aim my gun at at enemy while I'm walking around. I played it for about 1 hour and back in the envelop. I don't know who is hyping up this game but it blows.
I never played the original MGS games. My first experience with MGS was 4. So I didn't play with the old control schemes. All I can say is they control horribly in my opinion.
The games and stories are good enough. However, to play with outdated control schemes of the past you'd have to be looking to relive the experience of the past. These games just don't stand the test of time from a control standpoint.
So if you are a huge MGS fan with fond memories go ahead and rent or purchase (my review won't apply). For anyone else I found the controls annoying and gave up pretty quickly. I'd suggest a skip.
1) MGS has story (rare for action games)
2) for the fans of the past they can relive

Ever since owning a playstation as a kid i played Twisted Metal all the way to crash bandicoot, the few exclusives i never got to play however was the Metal Gear Solid series. the first game on the card(the 2nd in the series) was not bad but very hard to get used to. The camera was odd and the controls were rough, understanding of course that is just a port from the original with redefined graphics. the 2nd game on the card(snake eater) was incredible! i remember hearing so much about this game at the time and finally getting to play it, i wish more games could follow it! this is a good buy but if you remember Solid Snake as a blockbuster you might be disappointed. just my own opinions of course :)
