Metal Gear Solid is one of those single player experiences that anyone who calls themselves a gamer would be crazy to miss. Hideo Kojima has ended the tale of Solid Snake with an experience that can not be called anything other than epic. Given the story can at times seem a bit over the top it is so well presented it and a few movement / control shortcomings can easily be forgiven. This is single player experience any fan of the series ( or anyone new abet some brushing up on MGS history would be beneficial) can really sit down any enjoy.
Overall a single player masterpiece.
However it only receives 4 1/2 stars due to its cumbersome online that it tedious to set up and could really use some fine tuning. But that still dosent make me recommend it any less.
So if you haven't picked it up by now and own a PS3, do yourself a favor and get this game if only to play through this amazing experience one time.
