In 1998, the gaming world once again saw a huge boost. Nintendo 64 gamers were being blown away by The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time while Playstation gamers got the much anticipated follow up to Resident Evil. Later on in the year, however, a game developer named Hideo Kojima released a game that would invent a genre and change the way a story is told in a game. The game was called Metal Gear Solid. Rather than being an all out action shoot 'em up, the point of the game was to avoid the enemy at all cost, kill as few enemies as possible and stop a terrorist threat. The game changed the way we played games, and changed storytelling for the better. Quite simply put, Metal Gear Solid was quite possibly the greatest achievement on the Sony Playstation. Now, ten years later, gamers still play the game regularly and religiously.

Metal Gear Solid has players controlling Snake as he sneaks into the Nuclear Warhead Storage Facility known as Shadow Moses. An island off the coast of Alaska. His mission is to rescue the DARPA Chief Donald Anderson and Armstech President Kenneth Baker. He is also tasked with finding out if the terrorist actually have a nuclear warhead... and stop them if they do. The game's story is told through cinematics with some of the best voice acting the video game community has ever seen. With some incredibly well developed characters as well as some of the greatest plot twists in gaming history, Metal Gear Solid was an iconic game. It's villain: Liquid Snake, has often been labeled as one of the greatest villains in video gaming history.

The gameplay of Metal Gear Solid was groundbreaking at the time. While it doesn't have the same mechanics as later games in the series, it's still quite incredible for the Playstation.

You play as Solid Snake; a relatively young, retired soldier from an elite government team known as Foxhound. Your ex-commander, Colonel Roy Campbell, calls you out of retirement to inform you of a terrorist plot involving some of Foxhound's top operatives. The terrorists threaten the United States government with a nuclear attack wave from the ultimate nuclear-equipped walking battle tank known as Metal Gear Rex. Snake is sent in to save the day.

Snake is a wonderful character, his history as a cold-blooded killer is well known, yet there is a gentle soul trapped within that tough exterior. There are a variety of interesting support characters to meet, each one of them with their own personal history and distinguished relationships to Snake. The script is fantastic and the dialogue is mind blowing, the quality and depth of it is something that I've never seen before.

The presentation is slick and stylish; it's very evident that a great amount of thought has gone into the menu system. Unlike many games, all of Metal Gear Solid's cutscenes are generated via its in-game engine. Once you take this on board, you realise that Kojima has spared no expense when it comes to the overall production values. It feels like an action movie, a variety of camera angles are available to present every environment in an epic fashion.

Snake's character model is well designed, but his animations are what really make him stand out. Our super soldier can crawl, strafe or crouch behindI cover with great fluidity. The members of Foxhound are extremely well detailed. from their size to their weapons and abilities.

Well, at least I thought I was revisiting a classic. Inspired by the events of Guns Of The Patriots (don't worry, no spoilers here), I decided to pop in the old 2-discer for a bit of reminiscence, before catching on after about ten minutes that I knew the intricacies of the game all too well, going as far to predict Snake's hardly-gaming-history first meeting with Mei Ling word for word. See, after finishing this game some 32 times, I'm confident I know it better than I know my mum.

No game, except maybe the sequel, Sons Of Liberty, has ever had me coming back for more as often as Metal Gear Solid. Even the excellent latest offerings don't have the same pull on me. And despite the fact that it is effectively rendered obsolete by later improvements in control, its never been bested for character or style. From FOXHOUND's fantastic freaks to the man himself, Liquid, no game has ever surpassed this for quality villainy. The setting is excellent. The discovery of support from Otacon and Meryl in such a remote oppressive surrounding is a genuinely comforting feeling. The music is excellent. The sound effects are something I never thought about until recently, but honestly, they add so much to the game, from the satisfying 'clak' of picking up an item to the horrifying "!" of being discovered, sound design in this game is flawless. The script is the best of the four, with the least waffle and the easiest plot to comprehend. The performances are spot on first time around, from David Hayter's best outing as Solid Snake to Cam Clarke's inexplicably but deliciously British Liquid. The gameplay is innovative, from the truly baffling Mantis fight to the backtracking Sniper Wolf battle and the final showdown with Rex, where timing is everything.
