This is an example of poor porting from Playstation to DS platform. The beginning cinematics are fantastic, but I couldn't even climb a freaking tree in the beginning of the game without getting frustrated and almost breaking my DS! The controls of the game is terrible. Whoever thought that giving the right side (YXBA) buttons to control camera angles is a great idea, while the up button does a million things is a genius (not). Anyway, bottom line, good looking game but make sure you configure the controls otherwise, don't bother
Although I love my 3DS and enjoy MGS games on other platforms. This particular game just did not port well to the 3DS. The small low res screen blurs subtle detail (like soldiers in the distance) and makes the game an exercise in frustration. definitely a rental but not a keeper.
I am hoping the PS Vita port will be more playable.
