The antithesis to Metal Gear Solid prioritizing action over stealth. Brief, even by action game standards, with a rather bland story. Apart from 2 dlc episodes, no online functionality whatsoever seemingly results in little play incentive beyond the main campaign. But the intense funfactor will keep you coming back for 2 more difficulty levels above 'Hard', VR missions, and several unlockables in costumes & weapons. And the Rocking Metal soundtrack matches the lightning fast action perfectly.

At first I was impressed by the fast gameplay and the easy access to combat. But it was to much of action, for my taste. Still it is an eyecatcher with great soundtrack and it has it's comical moments,

this game had a really hard time, but showed that you shouldent give up. it is a complet opposite to metal gear solid, its focus on action makes stealf extremly hard. this for me made the game trule fun as i tryed to make the game work in ways it wasn't ment to.

Most fun Hack 'n Slash ever though while short, it meant to be played that way. Love how the game's story doesn't take itself too seriously.

Great action game that uses very well the Metal Gear license. The story is at the same time megalomaniac, filled with many international-political conspiracies, like all Metal Gear games should be, and surprisingly not that much hard to follow. The action itself, even-though not as insane as something like Bayonetta, still is worthy of Platinum Games level of madness. A complaint would be that the game is kinda bad at explaining some of its mechanics, but when you get it all down its great.

It took me about a year to finally play this game and I regret waiting for so long. I've been a fan of Platinum Games, since the members were part of Clover Studio. Lightning fast/smooth controls, an fantastic soundtrack, great cast of characters (I really liked Sam and Wolf), addictive gameplay, and an almost infinite replayability. I really hope there is a sequel and Platinum Games is involved.

As a spin-off of the Metal Gear series, there is only the lightest of dusting of Kojima's influence here; the rest is all Platinum and it is Good©. An amazing soundtrack, extremely smooth game play and a defensive mechanic that rewards precision and proper timing make this one of the best games of the genre. Its only faults are that mastering the parrying system does make the game trivial - even at higher difficulties - and it has a relatively shallow combo system. Highly recommended.

I wasn't sure what to expect out of this game but I like it. It is different than the Metal Gear Solid games. It's not stealth but a hack and slash action movie instead.

Extremely fun and full of great, engaging gameplay and stellar controls. The story is quite weak, but that's okay when the gameplay is strong. It looks good (not great) and has a pretty respectable quality of enemies and really good boss fights. However, there is one glaring issue-it's way too short. If the DLC is in fact now free, then that would help with problem, but it still could stand to have a longer campaign, for sure.

Stylish action and interesting innovation are unfortunately squandered in this title. Short, repetitive and horribly simple, the game's only redeeming qualities are a stellar soundtrack and unique mechanics. I have to give it to Platinum - they know how to consistently make interesting games, but this is their weakest yet.

Some may say that this game's pretty shallow in terms of control mechanics, but I disagree. Oftentimes, you'll need to employ precision cutting techniques in order to efficiently destroy enemies. Sure, you can button mash your way through the game, but in order to get the best rank and score possible, you NEED to analyze your enemies' weak points and cut accordingly. As for the defense mechanic, you need to analyze your opponents' attack patterns, so you're far from "invincible."

Platinum Games strikes again with what has to be the lowest point of the beat-them-up genre this generation. Not many games let you go up to the higher difficulty settings by mashing buttons, but with a defense mechanic that renders the protagonist almost invincible and plenty of opportunities to restore health, we have a game that relies solely on a name to sell itself. For those of you looking for a guilty pleasure, this game still won't be good, but the general cheesiness might be enjoyable.

This is NOT Metal Gear Solid. In fact, forget everything you know about Metal Gear Solid's gameplay and you instead get another over the top, action game from Platinum. What the game lacks story is made up for in gameplay as having the ability to slow down time and choose how you who to dismember enemies has never been so much fun. The game is quite short but VR missions are included and it's encouraged to do a 2nd or 3rd playthrough to unlock all the upgrades. One of the highlights of 2013.

Smooth over the top action take on the Metal Gear series by Platinum games. Good combat and satisfying animation make this a joy to play. One of the best games of 2013.

"I love the look of these old pong consoles. Always look like a real hoot to play also. I need to track a couple down and join in on the fun." - scarecrowchan

"I'm still undecided whether or not to get one of these PS4 machines. I think I'm too old and crusty to understand these new robots and electronic mechanisms like this." - scarecrowchan

 NES-039 Dogbone Controller - NES
"This controller came with the NES 2 aka the all mighty top loader! It was also sold individually. It's my favorite NES controller :) If you like the original controller then this one if for you because nothing has been changed except for the shape and minor changes to the buttons to make it more comfortable to use. Rather then those sharp corners you get a more rounded design similar to the SNES controller. Grab this controller if you ever see it 'cause it's cool to have and comfortable to use." - Truxton4life
