RadarPlays - Metal Gear

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is out this week, but instead of playing the newest entry in the celebrated Metal Gear franchise, we’re focusing on where it all began. We plugged in the MSX version of the original Metal Gear to have some fun while also appreciating just how far the series has come. Watch the blast from the past below…

Want to hang out with GamesRadar's editors while taking a look at retro games, new releases, and totally random experiences? RadarPlays is for you. Mondays we'll be checking out blasts from the past, Wednesdays (and sometimes Tuesdays and Thursdays, depending on the week) is reserved for new releases, and Friday is packed with the strangest titles you’ve never (hopefully) heard of.

    Oh wow, it really did get pretty intense once guards got into full alert ^^; And man, Ryan ALMOST made it out alive in that last part, still has to be commended for taking out like 4 guards out of 6 with his bare hands XD

    You totally needed a box to hide under. Also, who sends a spy in with no weapons or gear other than your hands and some smokes?

    I recently played through Metal Gear 1 and 2. Its interesting to see a lot of elements that would later appear in MGS1.
