Ron’s Retro REVIEW #10 — Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

peace walker review

This stripped down feel carries over to the game and its mission structure. And yeah, the controls have led to some bizarre exclusions from classic Metal Gear Solid gameplay. Although Kojima planned to leave the project in the hands of other members from Kojima Productions, in order to make the plot's message clearer for the young demographic, he took the role of director at the same time as he was developing Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. The controls are pretty easy X to fire, analog stick to move, etc. Run a few training missions, develop that weapon for an upcoming boss battle, and recruit that level B medic you need. Another reason for overlooking it is that Peace Walker is a portable game, and it is one following on the heels of three other attempts at making the popular series mobile.

There's allways some good promotions going. Later in the game you can tend to captured vehicles, send a combat team to do some guerrilla attacks on bordering countries, and even, in a sly bit of foreshadowing, build your own Metal Gear. Aside from that, Metal Gear Solid is second to none when it comes to war commentary and perfectly capturing the geopolitical system our world has in place.

But what is the point of quick bursts of Metal Gear Solid? The game falls a bit short once you reach the endgame. Manipulating the environment, creating hellish situations for enemy soldiers, pestering and tormenting them to no end with distractions, C4, and sleeping darts. And boss battles even allow for 4 players, turning them into complete frenzy! At first, Snake has little interest, but a mysterious tape the professor brings has a very familiar voice which spurs Snake on to accept the mission. Play Peace Walker in any shape or fashion before Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain comes out on Sept. That is how I felt when I finished Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots — the final chapter of my favourite game series.

It takes place in 1974, a few years after the events in Portable Ops. The base-simulation portion never becomes too cumbersome or gets in the way of the actual game, and the missions feel like they have much more meaning thanks to how experimenting and digging through them only leads to bigger, better toys of destruction. The story in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is so good. The story, while beautifully told, wasn't quite as captivating as most othe. Skeptical, but still haunted by the memory of her death, Naked Snake takes his private army to Costa Rica The story is stripped down, told in rough—lined comic book style cutscenes, scrapping the realism, and the dense and confusing mythology the Metal Gear Solid series is infamous for.
