Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops


Less than two years into the PSP's lifespan the handheld has already seen two Metal Gear titles. While both game in the Ac!d series are considered very well done they...

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker


There are very few franchises on the Playstation consoles / portable machines that put fans into a frenzy as much at the Metal Gear Solid series. Designed to continue the story after Portable Ops, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker for the Playstation...

Gamertell Review: Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker


Hideo Kojima's new installment of the Metal Gear Solid franchise is out. You can insert the triumphant fanfare soon. I will tell you that I wanted to like the game and, well, I didn't like it. I loved it.

It’s gorgeous, well-written, has good voice acting, believable characters, a great soundtrack, a really interesting way of telling the story, the overall army building works better than it did in Portable Ops

The camera controls take a lot of getting used to, some of the robot bosses even as early as the first chapter can be a horrible headache

Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops +


Konami marches an old soldier onto the field once too often.

Based on a good game; new unlockable characters; great style

Cheap content; no story; requires hours of tedium to excel

The mechanics of Metal Gear Solid were translated brilliantly onto the PSP with Portable Ops, but we really don't want to spend dozens, if not hundreds of hours, with no goal in sight but more leveling and soldier abductions. It's a stealth action...

Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops review for the PSP


Cold blooded, but we think it's hot.

Great story; Excellent rebellion system; Plays well; Online everything; Total package

Menu heavy; Don't walk, don't run

The arrangements were made. The flowers were ordered, black shirts and black ties were ironed and a little tiny hole was dug in the GR back lot for our starving friend, the Sony PSP. We were all ready to bury the little guy, with lots of crying and...

Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops


Kojima Productions proves that the PS2 experience can be well-translated to handheld after all.

It's the MGS game that everyone wanted on the PSP; raises the bar for what PSP games should do with the system's technology

Fidgety camera makes multiplayer tougher; if you don't like Subsistence's online players, not much is different here

Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops Plus


There are many games that we have seen make an impact on the industry, whether in a genre changing way or just a game that has enough impact that

In the end, Portable Ops is one of the best games the PSP has seen thus far. In fact, this is really the type of game that the PSP needs to start seeing more of because these are the type of games that drove fans to the Playstation 2, and can do the...

Metal Gear Solid: Digital Graphic Novel Review


The graphic novel has earned itself a standing as an independent art form over the years, and is now moving into the digital realm. Following in the footsteps of the Silent Hill Experience, Metal Gear Solid: Digital Graphic Novel comes to the PSP...

Metal Gear Acid 2


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 Solid: Portable Ops review


After playing a few hours of the original PlayStation Metal Gear Solid and the PS2 follow-up, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, I quickly lost interest in the franchise. Plagued with a bad camera and a relentless barrage of cinematic cut-scenes, the...

With PlayStation Portable owners so badly neglected in the nearly two years that the system has been out, I have to say it is about time someone steps up to the plate. Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops has its flaws: a lack of impressive cut-scenes,...
