Metal Gear Solid is an action adventure military game, developed and published in 1998 by Konami exclusively for the Playstation. This game managed to change video gaming history with its own perspectives, action, intensity and strong emotion.
Metal Gear Solid Solid Snake, a red-neck commando is recruited by the US Government to retaliate and confront a special forces team called Foxhound. The Team Leader is a madman and special trained person called, Liquid Snake. Foxhound threats to use a unique nuclear weapon and destroy the world, so Snake must infiltrate their facilities, kill their men and destroy the weapon once and for all. Apart from the main cause, Snake needs to find out his identity since the resemblance to Liquid is, at least, scary. Gameplay is in one word "fantastic". You can infiltrate, fight with bare hands, shoot, explode and use many ways and strategies like a real-life commando. Your inventory is full of weapons and necessary items to use, such as your faithful Socom pistol, rocket launchers, C4, grenades, energy rations, etc. The difficulty level increases gradually so the game gives you the opportunity to learn how to use its mechanics. And there's a lot to do, believe me. When a task is completed, Solid must face a big boss (highly trained members of Foxhound), each one with his own capabilities and powers. Camera perspective changes all the time, with many zoom-outs and zoom-ins plus a first person perspective, depending on what is needed at a particular time. Metal Gear Solid comes in 2 CDs, a fact that promises to keep you entertained for many hours. It is indeed on of the best games for this console and one of the best games ever created in history.

Graphics are all three-dimensional, colorful, dark and look absolutely great. The environments vary from underwater facilities to high snowy mountains. The sound is epic, from the intro song to the in-game music scores and sound FX. Technically, MGS has brought the Playstation to its limits, giving us a superb game to play, watch and -mostly- feel! MGS is a perfect 10!
