When this game first came out for the Playstation it revolutionized gaming as we knew it. this version, however, is way better. firsthand, the graphics got a major upgrade. secondly, you can now aim in first-person mode. the levels and other gameplay are the same as the old version but the controls feel smoother. the game has a good story if you haven't played the first one. overall this is one of the few games that's keeping the Gamecube alive. I give it an 8, out of 10.
Metal Gear Solid originally came out for the Playstation 1. I still think it's one of, if not, the best stealth game out. Although the PS1 version is really good, I still think this one might be a bit better.
Graphics The graphics are pretty cool. I kind of like the look of the characters and everything else. They're nothing huge, or special, but they're nice.
Sound The music is okay, but some songs are kind of "technoey" and they took out the best stealth song that happens when you get caught by a guard. The sound effects are cool. No annoying voice-overs or anything.
Gameplay I love playing this game. I play it a lot of times and rarely get bored with it. It's especially fun when you have the stealth camoflauge (invisibility). Sneaking around, killing guards. That's my idea of a fun game. Though, many games screw that up. Not Metal Gear Solid.
Replay Value This game has pretty good replay value. Even after you beat it, you kind of feel like playing again. Plus, you can play on a harder mode the next time. Or you unlock the stealth camoflauge making the gameplay kind of different and funner, and you can get all the dogtags, or take pictures of ghosts and other stuff. One of the funnest extra things to do is taking pictures. If you find the camera hidden somewhere in the game, you can take up to as many pictures as your memory card can hold. I believe one picture is like 2, or 3 blocks. I'm not too sure. But it's fun setting up something in the game and taking a picture of it :)
Difficulty This game could be pretty hard, especially if you suck at games. Playing on the hardest mode is pretty difficult as well. But they made this version easier than the PS1 version. Such as you start with full life, or you can hold more rations at once.
This game is totally worth buying. Renting it is good too, if you're one of those who just want to beat the game, or play it a few times and thats it. This game is really fun and totally worth it.
