Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker is a stealth-action game set between the events of Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops and the original Metal Gear game. Revolving around the continuing early adventures of series centerpiece, Snake, it fleshes out the legend of "Big Boss" in the days following the Cuban Missile Crisis through a deep single player story mode, featuring a new control system and missions offering extensive replay value, as well as extensive and engaging co-op multiplayer options.

Stories tell of a legendary soldier who once waged war against the world. His name was Naked Snake, a.k.a. Big Boss, and the truth behind this legend will finally be told. The era is the 1970’s. Big Boss had stationed his "Soldiers Without Borders" in Colombia, South America, where he was approached by visitors from Costa Rica, a "nation without a military." In the wake of the Cuban Missile Crisis, as Latin America became a key to maintaining the power balance between East and West, Costa Rica had miraculously managed to maintain its peace and neutrality. However, in various regions of the country, a mysterious armed force seemed to be engaging in suspicious activities. Now, to preserve peace in this nation without a military, the "Soldiers Without Borders" move into action. In time, they would be known as the founders of "Outer Heaven." Forge a new path and live the legend with Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker, the first official Hideo Kojima game on the PSP system.

Mission-based Gameplay
Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker is a tactical-stealth-action game based around mission based gameplay. Play in single player mode begins with a tutorial in which players square off against Snake himself which serves as a way to familiarize themselves with a control scheme that provides changes as well as improvements over those featured in earlier MGS titles for PSP. These cover both weapons and hand-to-hand combat. In addition, players also gain experience using the controls to chain together moves for maximum impact. Once through with the tutorial players embark on a series of missions, the replaying of which offers new enemy actions, as well as the possibility of new devices and tools. During combat players are able to target specific areas of an enemy's body and performance during each mission is ranked according to elapsed time, number of kills and other criteria.

4-player Co-op Multiplayer
Along with a deep single player mode Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker contains exceptional multiplayer co-op functionality. Co-op action is facilitated via the PSP's local wireless ad-hoc connection and features different types of missions. Missions more dependent on stealth are limited to two-player games, while others--for example, boss battles--are meant for games of up to four players. Players have their choice of different versions of Snake. These not only possess differing appearance, but more importantly, differing strengths. During co-op play players can pull resources by staying within a minimal distance from each other This link is indicated by circles emanating around them. While maintaining this connection resources can be shared, including weapons, supplies and and overall health, indicated by a shared health bar. Players are able to view partner's inventory at a touch of the PSP's left or right face buttons, and when need be can resuscitate a fallen companion. When linked players can also move in unison by virtually tapping your partner's shoulder with a touch of the D-pad and then making your move.

Key Game Features

  • The Latest Title in the Metal Gear Solid Series - A true continuation of the ever-evolving franchise that stood the test of time and started the stealth action genre, Peace Walker is the first title on the PSP system in which mastermind Hideo Kojima has fully taken up the reigns to direct, write, and design the game himself.
  • Extensive Content - Arguably one of the deepest PSP games to be released as Kojima Productions pushes the boundaries of the platform to new levels while blending various game styles together in ways that will captivate and engross both veterans and newcomers to Metal Gear.
  • Proven Gameplay, Story, and More - Fans of the series will enjoy the exhilaration of familiar stealth elements of previous MGS titles and will also be enticed by the new gameplay features making their debut in Peace Walker. Those expecting a typical stealth game will be blown away by the Peace Walker experience. This game is a blend of action RPG elements, RTS elements for a PSP experience like none other. Staying true to Metal Gear form, the entire game experience is woven together by a gripping story which unfolds through the artwork of Yoji Shinkawa and acclaimed comic book artist, Ashley Wood.
  • Unique Online Multiplayer Support - Peace Walker provides up to 4-player co-op gameplay, which is a revolutionary first for the series that introduces the all-new Co-op Ring and "Snake Formation." The Co-op Ring allows gamers to interact and build their camaraderie through the sharing of items, equipment, and life gauges during the heat of battle, while the "Snake Formation" lets one player take the lead so the others can focus on defense.
  • Massive Replay Value - Replaying missions in Peace Walker earns players new stuff and experiences for Snake that can potentially change your experience.

I'm a big MGS fan, who owns every MGS game there is, so I knew what to expect from MGS: Peace Walker, and I must say I'm absolutely thrilled with this game. Japanese Director, Hideo Kojima and his team have went all out to make MGSPW just as good, and as deep as the console MGS games with the amazing story, amazing gameplay, great graphics, the humour and the replay value. This is something which very much disappointed me in the previous MGS game on the PSP; Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops which Kojima didn't direct. MGSPO had a flat storyline, absolutely no replay value and awkward controls/camera. However, you'll be happy to know that Peace Walker has learned and improved from Portable Ops!

Storyline & Characters: 9/10
Anyway, MGSPW is set in Costa Rica in the year 1974. Ten years after the events of Metal Gear Solid 3, and four years after the events of Portable Ops. Big Boss a.k.a. Naked Snake has established a small private army named 'Militaires Sans Frontières" or just simply MSF, which is based in Colombia who intervene in random conflicts throughout Latin America. A university professor called Galvez and a young girl called Paz approach Big Boss and his second-in-command - Kaz Miller - to help them free Costa Rica from a strange armed group which has been present in Costa Rica which has no military to defend itself. The girl also is posession of a tape which has The Boss talking to a British woman. Is The Boss still alive? Big Boss and his army set out to find the truth. As with all MGS games, things are never what they seem.. people are never what they seem, and there is of course sideswitching and revelations to be made. Admittedly, one such twist is rather unsurprising.. but the last phone call in the game is very surprising and unexpected.

This latest MGS for PSP is a fantastic title with the a story on par with the rest of the series. The production values are massive and no MGS fan nor any PSP owner should miss it. That being said, I am disappointed concerning some flaws the game and its system itself. First of all, the game is very hard. Period. Then, to achieve proper team strength and actually progress in the game you have to replay the past missions over and over. While this can be accepted as a strategic device, what really annoyed me is the structure of many additional missions later in the game, which are almost imposible to beat without several human co-players. I never have played online and I never will. While this is my problem, I fail to see why the solo part of a game requires co-op support from a certain point on to actually be completed. I don't get why Kojima structured the game this way. Any MGS title should stand on its own without this kind of major flaw. Furthermore, most of the bonus missions (extra ops) rehash the same battles. For example, during the main game, the player encounters about 2 armored vehicle/Tank battles and 2 helicopter battles. In extra ops, this is repeated for another 40 times with ever stronger opposition in the same locations! What is that about? Sadly, these missions need to be completed to actually unlock more missions. So, many times you find yourself totally stuck trying to beat one particular mission for hours and hours to unlock more missions exactly like it. But without this tactic, many items and weapons as well as character developments cannot be accessed within the game. While I have played the main storyline and most extra missions, I will probably never fully complete this game, which I find quite sad.Read more ›

This game is superb in all aspects, and in my opinion, is as good as the excellent Metal Gear Solid 4. The first thing to note is that the game looks incredible, it looks as good (or maybe even a little bit better) than MGS3 on the PS2. The soundtrack is also excellent, with different types of music accompanying you on every mission. Even when there is no music playing the game still sounds brilliant, for example; when walking through the jungle unspotted and alone, all you will hear is the beautiful sound of birds singing, and occasionally, the bustling of bushes. Another great aspect of this game is its length, the main story will take around 15-20 hours to complete. The game doesn't end there however, as there are many more side missions not part of the main story called extra ops, these missions will keep you playing for a long, long time.

My main gripe with this game is the boss battles: at times they are too hard and can get frustrating. To make it easier, you can invite friends to help you with these boss fights, but as I know no one else who owns both a PSP and Peace Walker, I was not able to use that feature, meaning that the battles would take a very long time, and multiple tries. Other people have claimed that the controls aren't up to scratch, but personally: I disagree. The controls in Peace Walker are very easy to get used to, and there is a helpful tutorial at the start of the game that many people would have played already if they downloaded the demo many months ago.

Overall, I feel that Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is one of a few must-have titles for the PSP. If you're looking for a game to play on the go with an excellent story, great gameplay and that's long lasting, then look no further: Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, in my opinion, is the best game on the PSP.
