Metal Gear Solid Review written Saturday, January 10th, 2015 at 05:36 pm.


Here it is, The legend itself. Metal Gear Solid the original. The one that started a dynasty. The first game ever to receive a perfect 10 from all independent "Electronic Gaming Monthly" staff. One of the most important & revolutionary games ever created. No-one had ever seen anything like it in gaming before. It blew people's minds. High-Quality cutscenes, Movie-Quality voice acting & it hasn't lost it's touch yet! It's still the most popular of the series & for good reason. Most people feel the most satisfied with it. Myself included. Also, most of the sequels are great but there's something special about the first one. It hasn't aged perfect but it will "Always" be a classic anyway. Every true gamer should play & beat MGS once.

Classic playstation game. Probably the best stealth game period. Story don't age a bit, gameplay now dated in its controls, soundtrack rocks, graphics is now dated, but for those times was top notch. nice VR mode, I invite to "read" this game in periodkey. It was revolutionary and will be Always remembered fondly from all gamers

Best Playstation Game Ever. Even thought I played it ten years after its release, I learned that graphics hardly hinder a great game from impressing on you. 1998 was a good year in Gaming.

If it wasn't for Metal Gear Solid, I may have never jumped over to Playstation. This game was the sole reason I got a PS1. The gameplay and story was perfect for what I was expecting. The characters and twists all were extremely fascinating and to this day ranks this game as my favorite of all time. Though aged graphically, the games story and gameplay holds up, for the most part. Nothing like sneaking around, challenging yourself and reliving Solid Snake at his best.

Fantastic plot, characters, and overall atmosphere hampered by 90's controls. Probably would've been downright legendary if I'd played it back in the day.

The greatest stealth-action game ever made. Though there were other stealth games before, Metal Gear Solid really perfected the formula to where its influence is still felt today. The boss battles where among the high-points as each was a unique experience. The cut-scenes and excellent voice acting turned this game into an interactive movie.

Excellent gameplay and a riveting story, Metal Gear Solid was an instant classic! Just the fact that the game came with 2 disks indicated time and effort would be required to pass this bad boy. And who doesn't like hiding under cardboard boxes?

the first video game i played where the story and gameplay went perfectly hand in hand. firstly after starting the game you have an amazing looking cutscene that showed what the big grey box was capable of but when you actually started playing thats when you knew you where in for treat. the game wasn't your run in the mill shoot everyone then advance it was tactacle and stratigic making you think about how you where going to progress. every character seemed believable and had a motive (david hayter as solid snake amazing). every boss battle was unique and on occasion made you think (especially how physco mantis messed with you). the story was something you expected to see in hollywood and had you sympaphise with alot of the characters.10/1

I cant believe I played the "whole"series last year (2012) I was missing out.

One of the greatest games ever made. Amazing story, terrific characters, studding gameplay that lasts hours. Hideo Kojima is a genius, all of his work is gold
