The game paved the path for MGS 4 masterpiece though, so it’s still a good achievement. Not so much as stand alone though.
|Cool setting||Story doesn’t work as stand alone|
|Good profound, interesting characters||Underwhelming villains|
|Great complex story encompassing both cold politics and tear-jerking heroic drama||
Some game-play parts can get tedious
Good stealth game-play
|Great boss fights|
