I'm a huge Metal Gear Solid fan. I finished Metal Gear Solid at least six times on the Playstation and a couple more times on the Gamecube. I played MGS2 back when it was new. But since then I haven't touched the series (not even MGS4. Yet!). I got the HD collection and instantly played through Peace Walker. WOW. I loved every minute. So, so brilliant.
But here's the problem. I then went to Snake Eater (being the other one that I have never played). And I just can't work it out. Something's not clicking with the mechanics. It's so different to Peace Walker and I keep getting locked into the PW way of thinking. You can't do that crouch walking the controls are completely different. Coupled with the fact that there's no real tutorial or any explanation of how to pull of stealthy shit that I'm so badass at doing in PW. Basically, I try to sneak up to dudes, get heard/seen, then get my ass handed to me. It's no fun. I came out of it and went back into MGS2 (which I've played through before and loved) and it's the same. Obviously the problem is me and the fact that I can't get the PW controls out of my head.
Is anyone else currently playing it (I'm on 360, by the way) who could potentially offer me some tips? Like, general rules of engagement (or even better, how not to engage the enemies). I usually find that something eventually clicks with these games (like, you work out exactly when the enemies can and cannot see you or whatever) and I suddenly LOVE them. But feeling like an idiot at the moment.
