Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes

Filed under: Video games — mahou @ 4:47 pm

Enjoyable enough, but if they’d dropped the overlong, badly scripted and ‘acted’ cut scenes that constantly interrupt the action, it would have been much better.
Maybe this stealth system was revolutionionary at the time, but as everyone ripped off the ideas, it didn’t live up to the hype.
The aiming system is terrible for the weapons, as firefights are poorly implimented and strangely you cannot move in first person view and the boos fights are mostly of the stand and trade while healing instead of using strategies to defeat them. The fight with Psycho Mantis was one I was looking forward to, but it was a let down with him cheating to avoid damage until you move your controller to the 4th port – this is not something you would try if you hadn’t read about it in advance.
