Metal Gear Acid review

  • Unique and intricate card combat
  • Story fits well in Metal Gear series
  • Emphasis on thought over action
  • Can be terribly confusing
  • Dialogue is far worse than most games
  • Where's the co-op multiplayer?

The move to the PSP has also taken a toll on the series' vaunted graphics. Though Snake and Teliko look fine, no areas outside of your immediate surroundings will be rendered, and the camera frequently does more harm than good.

Though Metal Gear Acid takes some practice and will create some frustration, it eventually becomes a very unique strategy game that has its own unique rewards. Co-op multiplayer would have hooked us, but determined strategists will find their fun regardless.
