  A hidden and undervalued gem in the franchise.

Having got this game free with my PSP, as a last resort. I wasnt expecting much play time from it and thought I would stick to the likes on Monster Hunter or Tomb Raider but I was completely wrong.

The card based gameplay is a new one to me, and I was skeptical as whether it would work or not. I actually fell in love with the new type of gameplay, rather than just another generic action game. The new system has a slight learning curve but its worth surpassing this, after a few hours you'll be selecting cards and formulating guard killing strategies with ease.

The graphics are very good for a handheld, and apart from a tiny bit of slowdown when everything starts exploding there are no complaints from that sector. The sound effects and musical score are also top notch.

The story follows the Konami convention of being really far fetched and hard to follow, this particular game involves evil puppets and a mysterious entity named FAR.

8/10. Worth the play, guaranteed to keep you entertained for hours.

Its actually a very good game, its different than the typical MGS style games , instead its a strategy game relying on various cards which have different abilities and attacks , its a fairly complex game and requires patience but is quite rewarding and at times challenging. The storyline is an improvement overall to most MGS style games (looking at you here MGS2!!) and although it has strange characters there not rubbish ones like vampires who can run on water or suicidal women packing railguns instead Id say the storyline is more akin to that of a PKD novel, but obviously not quite as good.

If you have played the other metal gear series on the ps2, you will be dissapointed with this game. Very different from the originals (like a game of chess). Graphics are ok, but the storyline is pretty crap!
