Advantages: Story line
Disadvantages: Dumb guards
Metal Gear Solid is the third in the series of the Solid Snake games, the first one was called Solid Snake and the sequel called Solid Snake 2. Metal Gear is the huge robot you fight against in the game, which is where they got the name for Metal Gear Solid.
I’m not going to tell you the whole story, because it’s a very good one and I wouldn’t want to ruin it for you, so I’ll just tell you the main plot. You play a legendary character called Solid Snake, who infiltrates places without alerting the enemy, which is what you have to do in this game. In the last game you had retired from the anti-terrorist group called Fox Hound but you are now called back for a top secret mission which requires you to sneak into a terrorists base, found out what they want, what they’re capable of and if they hold a threat stop them.
I love the story to this game, very well thought up. The characters were also very well made up, especially their names, and even though the game is a bit short, you can play it over again and get some extra special items.
The enemies are a bit dumb, when you go up behind them and kick them then run away, they just say, “Huh?” then carry on patrolling. Also when you kill one of the guards you can’t pick up their weapons. The game is a bit too short and easy, it took me about 6 hours to complete, which was about a week.
The AI of the characters may be a bit low and some bits of the game aren’t too realistic, but this game has great game play, a brilliant story line and you can play it over again, so defiantly buy it.
