All About Babycop
MGS: PO is by far the best PSP game to date. It might even be the best MGS in the series.
Now let me tell you how perfect it is. The gameplay is fantastic! The games controls were absolutely perfect for the PSP. The best thing in the gameplay is the character switching and capturing. It's a good change to play as someone other than Big Boss (even if he is one of the coolest characters to ever be in a video game). Every character has different abilities, which are really cool to experience.
The graphics look almost exactly as they do in MGS3. Which is a good thing! The 2D videos take some getting used to, but once you do you'll really enjoy them.
The sound is perfect! The music and sound effects are perfect! There's really nothing more to say about the sound than what I already did.
The story to this game is great! It links in with MGS3 which makes it an actual part of the MGS saga, which is suprising to me since it's the PSP I'm talking about.
This game is definitly worth its $40 price tag! Heck, I'd even say it's worth $50!
Anyone who owns a PSP (wether you've experienced the series or not) needs to own this game.
An overall perfect game.
4May 06Once again, I LOVE the Silent Hill series. And the fourth installment made me question how much I love the series.
When I first got the game, I was excited to play another amazing Silent Hill game, one that was as good or even better than it's predecessors.
I was really happy with what I got.
The only problem I had with the game was the lack of character personality.
So I played and played and played. Everything was exactly as I wanted it to be. But then I hit a speed bump... Actually, more like a wall.
"Wasn't I here at the beginning of the game?!?"
I found out later that in order to proceed with the storyline, you had to go EVERYWHERE and do EVERYTHING you did for the first half of the game a second time! Well actually, it was the same place, just different puzzles and riddles.
New dislike for the game...
It's funny how such a good game was completely ruined because of what seems to be lack of imagination in the game developers. They basically recycled everything in the first half of the game, somewhat altered it, and made it into a horrible second half.
But that's not the only problem with the game...
One thing that really bothered me was the lack of darkness AND urgency the other games had. There are NO completely dark areas in the game, and the monsters don't look or sound as scary like they did in the previous installments.
And once again, lack of character personality. The protagonist doesn't even seem scared or even bothered by the fact that he's locked in his room and is being attacked by ghosts and monsters.
I was REALLY dissappointed by what this game turned out to be. I mean it's still somewhat good, but not enough to buy for more than $20.
If you still want to play the game, be careful, it's not a good game to start on if you're curious about the series.
4May 06As a fan of the series, when I looked at the back of the game case I was very unsure of what I could expect.
When I began to play, I was immediately dissappointed because there was a lack of story and character development. About 15 minutes into the game is when the game took a turn for the better...
Afterwards, I realized, that I jumped to conclusions too quickly because this game was close to perfect!
The story is great
The characters are great
The action is great
One thing I loved about it is how uncomfortable I got while I played. The game made me feel claustrophobic and paranoid that something was following my character. The atmosphere was the best thing in the game.
The only problem with it is the lack of guidance the game gives you. You will spend alot of time checking every door and room in a building trying to find an item or something to move the story along.
Otherwise, this game is amazing. When you see it at a store somewhere, buy it. The silent hill series is hard to find in stores.
