Very Good

A Good Re-release For A First-Timer

The only other time I've played Snake was in Super Smash Bros Brawl. I must say that this is a fun game. Stealth games are not very common so it's nice to see one that does it well. The controls are fluent, the gameplay is fun if not slightly repetitive, the graphics are good and so is the 3D. So why an 8/10? I think it's because I believe the cutscenes to be a little too long. I do like cutscenes but several of them seemed to go on for 10-12 minutes before I could continue to play. I can assume all of the cutscenes came from the original? I liked a lot of the bad guys. I didn't like Ocelot, though. He just wasn't all that interesting and his gun tricks got annoying and boring fast. Regardless though, it is a good game and I recommend it to anyone curious enough.

Would have been an 8

This game could easily have been an 8. The only issue I ran into was that the controls were not very well designed. Using the four keys to the right of the screen for the vertical and horizontal pan/scan did not work in high-intensity cover/shoot situations.

Beyond that, the game was great in the typical Metal Gear standard.

Rigor Mortis

The rather limited size of the handheld seriously cramps your sneaking ability for the PS2 hit MGS:SE.

If you've played the original, you can see how the PTA camera control has you being spotted almost immediately while you put on your best form.

A solid 7, because they were actually able to get MGS:SE on a handheld.
