Metal Gear Acid 2 (PSP)

 

Metal Gear Acid was one of the more unusual but surprisingly great launch titles for Sony's PSP. Now, barely a year later, there's already a follow-up. While not much has changed in that time, Metal Gear Acid 2 manages to deliver the same unique,...

When it comes to audio, Metal Gear Acid just delivers. It still has a very Metal Gear sounding soundtrack, with your usual espionage-sounding soundtrack during the sneaking portions, and your fast-paced-I'm-about-to-get-shot-a-lot rhythms during the...

Metal Gear Acid 2

 

For those of you with the keen prowess to interpret the "2" at the end of Metal Gear Acid 2, you'll probably realize that this PSP game is a follow-up to the original, which shook up the Metal Gear Solid world. Of course, Metal Gear Acid 2 (or "Ac!d"...

Mecca for Metal Gear fans ; Addictive gameplay ; Loads of replay value ; The Solid Eye concept

Intrinsically flawed ; Dull, uninspired story ; Text-heavy with dry dialogue ; Solid Eye Theater is kinda creepy

Disturbed as I am by the continuing trend of so many games becoming bedfellows with TCG/CCG, even I have to admit that I enjoyed Metal Gear Acid 2, and I think a lot of other people could as well. Unfortunately, it seems for every point, there is also...

I applaud Konami for taking such a risky endeavor with the Acid series. Fortunately the gambit paid off and the first game sold well enough to keep their interest in producing more of them alive. The card based battle system is a welcome change of pace...

Metal Gear Acid 2 review for the PSP

 

A snake up your sleeve.

Deep card system; Tons of content; Great boss fights; Solid presentation

Acidic sounds; Very frustrating; Retarded dialogue; Not much different from the original

But not a bad package overall. It might not improve on the original in any meaningful way or fix any of that game's glaring flaws, but it's still a deep, smart and entertaining PSP game. A rare card indeed.

Konami thinks outside of the box in this sequel, in part by giving you a box to look into.

Control of Snake is more real-time than before; near double the cards and the ability to upgrade them; new graphical direction is appreciated

Without cinemas and voiceovers, the story is once again a snoozer; you can't help but wonder how cool a third-person action/adventure starring Snake would've been on PSP

Metal Gear Acid 2 PlayStation Portable Review

 

Metal Gear Acid goes psychedelic.

For those who have played the first game, you'll immediately note how flowing MGA2 is compared to the first. It's also a little more lenient and allows you a lot more options per turn. During a turn, you'll be able to easily crouch and stand back up,...

Metal Gear Acid 2 (PSP) review

 

A friendly game of (neck) snap played on a very special table.

This is one UMD filled with Metal Gear Strategy that any PSP owner should seriously consider because it makes 67.3% of all other PSP games seem like bloated ports. It’s fluid, vivid and with as much depth as you want. A delight.
