I just bought a psp just for this game and i thought at first that playing a Metal Gear game on the psp would be difficult but after the first hour a game play it is really not. First the game feels like a Metal Gear Solid which i though it wouldn't and the controls are not hard to get down. And Yes the cut scene are still there but there is some interactive game play in them which is not the worst thing in the world. The graphics are really good for being a psp title. The AI in the game is a downer in this tile just because one minute u will be in plain view and they would not spot you or u will be complete out of there view and they would spot you but this problem rarely happens but when it does it is very annoying. But the best part of the game is between mission when you are building your fortress out in the ocean AKA Mother base. In between mission u feel like you are really are in charge of this base u own from making sure everybody has food to tending to the sick and munch munch more. But in the long run if you give the game a chance you will most likely like especially if you are a metal gear fan.
