Such a masterpiece. The music, the atmosphere, the boss fights, the creative usage of things outside of the actual game (the controller ports, the back of the game case).. One of those games that will always be rightfully remembered as one of the all-time greats.

I haven't played nearly enough to rate it, but so far this game is a disappointment. I like how the stealth works, and the story so far is intriguing, albeit sometimes the cutscenes can drag at times (I'm ok with this since Hideo Kojima put a lot of effort into the characterization), but Metal Gear Solid has some of the worst controls I've used in ANY video game I've ever played. The camera can't be adjusted, and the aiming system for the guns is pretty much designed to get you killed (as though Konami couldn't make the enemies actually dangerous and instead had to make Snake play like a cripple to encourage you to use stealth). It's one thing to die because you legitimately screwed up; it's another to die constantly because you can't properly aim a friggin pistol. This game was made in 1998; it's not like there was no feasible way to make the enemies challenging but still have a good aiming system. I'm shocked that, from what I hear, this is also true with the sequels.

Gries MGS 4, ground Zeroes and Peace Walker are the only entries in the series that have decent to good gameplay. If you priotise controls over presentation, then the Splinter Cell franchise might be more up your alley. Imho Splinter Cell 1-3 > MGS 1-3

nameplz Thanks. Also I think MGS3 isn't that bad if you play Subsistence, from what I hear, since it has a 3rd person camera. I'm just a bit baffled as to why every review here gives MGS a 9 or a 10, and half of them even say it was good at the time, as though that automatically means it will stand up today. Games can tell great stories because they are interactive, but when there's a glitch in the interactivity (ie crap control), the story goes down the toilet. Snake's supposed to be the best soldier on the planet, for crying out loud, yet he can't even shoot a gun!

Metal Gear Solid was a game I got many Christmases ago and my first foray into the world of tactical stealth gameplay. The puzzles presented to players are really cleaver, such as looking on the physical game case to find a codex number and, switching controller ports to effectively fight a certain boss. The characters were really nicely fleshed out too and listening to the stories of how the bosses came to be at Shadow Moses after Snake defeats them has always been something I was interested in revisiting.

Metal Gear Solid changed the gaming landscape forever the day it was released. MGS showed the world (and the industry) what the medium was truly capable of. Games were no longer simply a fun past-time activity. Games were a chance to completely immerse players into believable worlds filled with characters you deeply cared about, boosted by a story that would keep you on your toes up until the very end. MGS is, without a doubt, a masterpiece and a true classic. One that hasn't aged a single day. And for all of that and more, Kojima deserves all the praise of this world.
Pros: Fantastic cast of characters, extraordinary and thought-provoking writing, amazing voice acting, incredible story(telling), excellent music, brilliant game design, awesome visuals, great gameplay and level design that hold up well to this day, superb and highly memorable boss fights, the little things that blow your mind, impeccable atmosphere

Gries Backtracking for a sniper rifle was the only part about this game I didn't like when I first played it in 2012. Truly a masterpiece. The Best is Yet to Come is probably one the best songs ever used in a video game.

Pudding I usually don't like backtracking, but those 2 times you were forced to backtrack in MGS weren't that bad, since it took you at most 15mins to do it.

The title that defined the 'modern era' of gaming for me. Cinematic (perhaps to a fault), ridiculously creative, and always fun. This was the high-water mark in gaming for years afterward. The open-ended play style that allowed players to approach each situation or problem with their own strategy (whether stealth or action or both) made for an exceedingly rewarding experience and offered countless opportunities for replay.

Though its age shows, Metal Gear Solid is still a masterpiece that is still mind-blowing to this day. The gameplay is top-notch but I feel like MGS shines the most when it comes to the soundtrack and story telling. The way each of the cinematic cutscenes are presented makes this game feel like an interactive movie done better than some of Hollywood's best efforts. Everything in the game shows high quality form the well-developed characters to each of the memorable boss fights. I now realize why this game is widely considered one of the best games of all time.

Michael Z wrote his opinion about Metal Gear Solid

In the seemingly never-ending debate as to whether games are art or not, MGS is an example I always quote when making the point that, yes, indeed, they can be. It breaks the fourth wall on a regular basis (for instance during the Psycho Mantis fight) and requires the player to reflect on his or her virtual bloodlust. For the sake of sounding hopelessly pretentious, it's probably the first postmodern video game ever made. Oh, and it's rather awesome too.
