Jimmy was niet de enige met zijn Metal Gear Solid review, Eurogamer bakte er ook eentje. De game mag dan wel wat oud zijn, beiden konden hem toch waarderen, Eurogamer gaf een 8 en Jimmy een 8,5. Metal Gear Solid for the Playstation was undoubtedly a great game, but the passing of almost three years and the transition to the PC has somewhat dented its appeal. It's also rather obvious that the developers realised towards the end of the game that it was going to be far too short, resorting to the old trick of forcing you to backtrack across large portions of the game world (no less than three times!) to make it seem longer.

At the end of the day though, Metal Gear Solid is still a great game for all of its flaws. The graphics are poor by today's standards, the cinematics dominate

the game, and the controls can be awkward at times, but the plot and characters are truly involving, the music, voice acting and sound excellent, and the gameplay still shines through.

If you already own a copy of the Playstation original then buying it again on PC is a little pointless, because apart from the first person view and higher resolution graphics nothing is really added. But if you haven't played Metal Gear Solid before then it's certainly well worth your money to see how the other half live... Gamers.nl MSG review Eurogamers MSG review
