MGS:PW is by far the bet game you'll get on the PSP. The sound is amazing, making you feel as if your in the jungle. The graphics are smooth but rough at the same time making it have the MGS feel to it. The gameplay is great, playing with friends really pushes the game all the way to. Download Adhoc party to play online and meet some new friends to!
MGS3 is my favorite game in the series so naturally I was looking forward to this but this game has exceeded my expectations. I was letdown by Portable Ops due to the horrible controls and camera but Peace Walker does a MUCH better job at addressing it (it is still not perfect).
The story is another great addition to the MGS saga and I enjoyed it alot.
The gameplay is what makes this game great though. The addition of coop is awesome and even though it is AdHoc only, you can still play it online via AdHoc Party on the PS3. Although a few gameplay moves are missing due to lack of a controller (crawling, moving along walls etc.) they really are not missed. You can do 2 player coop for the majority of the game with 4 players allowed for Boss fights.
Sound/Voices/Music is all top notch as with all MGS games.
The worst things about this game is its boss battles by far. Major letdown compared to other boss battles in the series. Controls are alot better than Portable Ops and are hard to learn but you get use to them.
TONS OF REPLAY VALUE!!!
I have only bought one other PSP game...Crisis Core FF7. Peace Walker is the 2nd game I have now and it is fantastic.
I enjoyed the Cold War aspect, since this is a sequel to Snake Eater. Im not a MGS fan, but MGS3: Subsistence and Peace Walker are my favorite of the series. I recommend this. There is a Co-Op feature but its local, so meet your friends at the same coffee shop if you plan to fight together. The missions are fun and broken up so they don't get long and frustrating. The home base management is fun for micro-managers and perfect to break up the game-play between missions.
