Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops review

  • Classic MGS stealth action
  • Lightning-fast load times
  • Recruitable bosses = awesome
  • All-text codec conversations
  • Guards are as dumb as ever
  • Waiting out alerts is a drag

Aside from being a cool new entry in the Metal Gear saga, Portable Ops is one of the only games that's really tailored to all of the PSP's unique strengths. The controls work surprisingly well, the action doesn't feel like a pared-down console game and even the loading goes quickly. Add familiar characters, sweet visuals, some excellent voice acting and animated cutscenes by comic artist Ashley Wood, and this should keep fans happy until MGS4 hits.
