Summary

Arguably the greatest game of all time, Metal Gear Solid redefines what a computer game can be. Boasting state of the art graphics, voice acting beyond the usual level seen in videogames and a stroyline that can easily sit alongside Hollywood action epics, the game is nothing short of revelatory.

Building on his successful series, Hideo Kojima has crafted a game that mixes 3rd person action with a new type of gameplay; stealth. Featuring brilliant artificial intelligence in its enemies, the game tasks you to break into a military base and stop a group of terrorists from firing a nuclear weapon from a launching platform known as Metal Gear Rex.

Our protaganist, codenamed Solid Snake, is a likeable hero, with a penchant for smoking ciagrettes and a talent with any type of military equipment. He needs every ounce of intelligence and strength as well, because he's going up against a team of heavily armed terrorists, not to mention their specialised fighting squad consisting of horrific creations including Psycho Mantis and Vulcan Raven.

If ever there was a game that could bridge the gulf between movies and videogames, this game has to be it. If ever a game deserved so much praise, this is it. If ever a game could show people what a games console is capable of, this is it.

And if ever there was hero we could count on, his name would be Solid Snake.

I think FFVII and FFVIII were the best games on PS1 but this is somewhere in the top 5 with others like Tekken 3 and Wipeout XL too.

The Cut scenes made it feel like a movie. Good stuff.
