[QUOTE] Want to play but haven't played any MGS games since MGS1... Do you recommend this game? [/QUOTE] Do I recommend the game? Yeah, I would, but only if you're a big MGS fan, otherwise it might be boring... The game is just fanservice wrapped in nice graphics and HUGE cutscenes, so you might be annoyed by the gameplay/cutscene ratio. I finished it in about 23 hours and I think I just played about 7 or 8 hours, perhaps even less. The game looks wonderful in some parts not so much in others, the faces look great, but they still can't get the hair right, it looks like PS2, most of the textures are low res (walls, floors etc.). The music is forgetable with a couple of exceptions, and the soldier's chat gets repetitive after a while but it has a nice collection of "war sounds" you know, bullets, bombs and the like. You get a crapload of weapons but I ended using the same five as in every other MGS: Sniper rifle, grenade launcher, rocket launcher and a machinegun/shotgun combo... yeah, you can customize some weapons but I didn't bother since that one worked for me. There are a few more weapons, but I don't want to spoil anything, since they're story specific items. And speaking of story... I don't know, I have mixed feelings; they explained EVERYTHING, which is good, but was it really necessary? I mean, I never wanted an explanation about Vamp's powers (now that I think about it, there are some aspects about his abilities that weren't explained, I smell plothole), that was part of his charm, same with the Foxhound and the Cobra Unit freaks. Anyway, the story is nice in the sense that it wraps the whole saga and gives closure to it. That did sound rash, but with all that I really enjoyed the game, it's like a son that you love despite any imperfection he might have. Buy it if you love the MGS saga, rent it if you don't, because it is one of those games you have to play.
