metal gear solid makes its appearance on the gamecube for the first time but this time its a remake of 1999's ps1 classic MGS so the controls are ok but seems not fit on the gamecube as the button arrangement doesnt seem right this game really should have stayed on the ps one or remade on the ps2 the graphics arent great and the difficulty is disappointing to veterans of the series the voice acting is average as david hayter, cam clarke, and pat zimmermen are the only good voice actors everyone else is eh. the good in this game is that if u r just starting to get into the series this is a great chance to catch up otherwise to those who own the old mgs this wont warrent anything so i place on to u to RENT this game before purchase.
The only reason I rented this game was because one of my all-time favorite GC games is Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem. I wanted to check out more of Silicon Knights' work. Espionage shooters just aren't for me. I didn't even get past the first tutorial level because I was so uninterested. The graphics are lovely, the voice acting is great, but if you're not really into the whole pretending-to-be-in-the- armed- forces thing, don't bother with this one.
