5.0 out of 5 stars Gaming Redefined 29 May 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revisiting a classic? A fond look back... 20 Jun 2008
By Rambleast Reviews TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even now this game is astonishing. 30 May 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Probably one of the best and most innovative games of all time, Metal Gear Solid is one of the most essential games out there. If you call yourself a true gamer and don't own this game then you must be ashamed of yourself. Being one of the first stealth games (although I'm not an expert and this notion could be debatable), I remember playing the game years ago back in 1999 and not real being used to the new style of gaming, I kept dying as I went through each area blasting away at enemies. I then got better at the game and enjoyed the hell out of it and I was completely blown away. The game obviously requires alot of patience, so you have to do like real spies do - lurk along the walls and use evasion to get past the enemy. If you get detected, you have to hide until the enemy gives up their relentless search for you. Though sometimes hiding just doesn't cut it, and you'll need more than a few weapons to help you out. MGS is all about reality - no magic John Woo guns with unlimited bullets. Ammo conservation is key for the harder settings of the game. There are also a plethora of items that you can find clever uses for. For example, a pack of cigarettes isn't just a source of cancer, but also useable to spot laser detectors. The boss fights were quite tricky especially the helicopter fight which I remember being the hardest moment in the game, but now I can easily breeze through the game with no problems being much more experienced. You play as Solid Snake, a retired Special Forces agent and former member of Fox Hound. Tired of the pain and strife of being a soldier, you have taken to a rustic life in Alaska. Not much there but unadulterated forests and woodland creatures, until your torrid past catches up with you. Read more ›
