Just like everyone else says, this game is short. I played it for an hour and a half, packed it back up and sent it out in the AM. I did not care to do the extra missions since I was pretty much dissatisfied with how short it was, even though I knew it was going to be short going in. Don't waste your time and money buying this one at full price, either rent it or ebay for like $5 since that's all its really worth gameplay-wise.
There is no Minimap/radar. There is no line of sight detection (you can't see any indicator of where the enemies are looking/how far they can see other than just looking at them and guessing). You cannot peek around corners. The story is bad. The only thing good about the game is the graphics, it looks polished.
Overall, it feels like a huge leap backwards in gameplay compared to MGS4. Bare-bones metal gear.
Like I said, I just wanted to dive in. I was really excited for this one, but I lost patience with the long, un-skippable, first two scenes. So, I just decided to send it back and wait for the new one coming sometime next year. Although, it did have AMAZING graphics, I made a snap decision to put it back in the mail. I also didn't like the premise of this Metal Gear Solid. I think Snake was great with his original "posse". But, I do concede, this one would make an, even more amazing than the graphics, movie.
