More of the greatest game in the world!
on 7 March 2004
You need the original Metal Gear Solid to play this game, so if you dont have it, buy that first, because that is the main game. There is no additional story in Special Missions, only VR missions.
Sound and graphics are similar to the original, and the music are remixed versions of the 2 first (quite unknown) Metal Gear games. The only bad thing about the original game is that it is to short. When you finish it you only want more, then this game is what you need.
Lots of crazy missions here, some examples are: BIG soldliers, "bowling" with enemies, find the murderer, play as Grey Fox!, photo mode with Naomi and Mei Ling.... and so on.
You might get frustrated some times when you have problems with a level, but it feels even better when you manage to complete it.
If you didn't like the original, you won't like this either(as if its possible to not like the original). The replay value is somewhat less than in the original, unless you are very interresting in getting the best times ever on all the levels(300 levels).
So, if you are like me, and can feel truely alive only on the battlefield. You need this game.
