A landmark game,
This review is from: Metal Gear Solid - Platinum (Video Game)
When metal gear solid appeared on the playstation, it completeley changed my perception of just how creative and original a game could be. It has spoken dialogue and cut scenes throughout and was the first game I played which feels like playing through a movie.
The basic structure of the character of Solid Snake infiltrating a terrorist stronghold, fighting an array of weird and wonderful characters along the way and receiving help over the transmission device in his ear works so well that it has barely changed in any of the other metal gear games.
The graphics may look a little crude compared to the playstation 2 games, but are still impressive enough for a playstation game and do the job perfectly. I would recommend the game to anyone, even if they have played the later games. It will at least make the plot of metal gear solid 2 make a little more sense.
