5.0 out of 5 stars The best game in the world, 5 Feb 2004
By 
This review is from: Metal Gear Solid - Platinum (Video Game)
The bad things about this game first. It's simply too short. You will probably finish it in under 15 hours the first time you play it, and if you try to do it fast, and skip all the movie sequences it is possible to finish it in under 3 hours.
Now that was the bad things about Metal Gear Solid. The good things are just to many to point out here, try it yourselves. Some people think this game is like Doom or Quake, and they start running around shooting people. They are discovered by the enemy and they die. This happens over and over again. Bad game right? Or bad player. This game is something called Tactical Espionage Action. You are not supposed to be discovered. Think about it, you are all alone in the enemy territory, and you have nothing but a scope and a pack of cigarettes. You do not want the enemy to see you. That my friends, are the ingenious point of the game. Then of course you will get a heart attack every time you are discovered.
The story is great, and the entire game is made so that it feels kind of like a movie, and you are in it. "In China they say: "You have to cross the river before you tell the crocodile that he has bad breath."" Buy this game and find out what it means, you will not be disappointed.
