Theres so much to say about his game, but il start by saying if you aint got it...get it now its possibly the greatest game ever made period.
Okay the cutscenes are long but to fans like me its pure gold, the creator hideo kojima is nothing short of a genious when it comes to story-telling.
Storyline is about liquid ocelot having control of the 5 major pmc (private military contractors) companies, liquid just happens to be evil & solid snakes brother so youve been brought out of retirement to bring him down, obviously theres more to it than that but i couldnt possibly scratch the surface of how deep the storyline goes, but what i can tell you is that it gets even more amazing as the game progresses with twist & turns every-where.
Game-play has evolved massively its got rid of the old annoying shooting mechanics of old & replaced them with over the shoulder aiming like resident evil 4, so now its actually fun to fight which has always been clumsy in the past, dont worry stealth is still the better option especially on the harder difficultys,
Snakes new octocamo suit is amazing it has the power to take the colour of any thing you hide against & paste it onto your suit, you'll also get the mask to go with it half way through the game so when your in a perfect hiding place you'l be almost invisible to your enemy, oh how i laughed as i shot many bad guy in the head without any-one knowing where i was truly giving you the feel you are the ultimate soldier.
The boss fights are something else there called the beauty & the beast unit (you'll see why as you play) each one different from the next really requiring you to use your head as you fight.
Online is fun as well you pretty much use tactics you picked up in the game & use them in devastating effect against your mates & enemies alike..to sum up if you own a ps3 & aint got this game your missing out trust me, this game is so big in japan they shifted an extra 10.000 ps3s on this game alone in 6 days, truly is a next-gen experience & will definately be a fond memory forever.
