Metal Gear Solid (Game Boy Color) – Second Opinion

I agree with Chi's statement that Metal Gear Solid is a technical achievement for Game Boy. Konami did an excellent job porting an elaborate 32-bit 3-D game down to an 8-bit portable system. With that said, I felt the game was far less compelling than Chi did. I would find myself putting the game down after a game session and later having to force myself to pick it up, only because I wanted to get my money's worth.

Game Description: A group of terrorists has captured an American cargo plane containing Metal Gear, the most dangerous weapon on the planet. It is now up to one man to infiltrate the terrorist base and destroy Metal Gear.

Metal Gear Solid (Game Boy Color) – Review

Without a doubt, the first thing that drew my attention was that despite the game being presented in a tiny little screen with 2-D sprites, virtually nothing was lost in the gameplay department. The perspective of the game is now locked down to a three-quarters overhead view (more like the original NES game) without the benefit of any 3-D camera panning or close-ups.

Metal Gear Solid (Game Boy Color) – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Violence

WinBack: Covert Operations – Review

Click here to read reviewWinback may lack the team strategy elements of Rainbow Six, but what it does have is an innovative control scheme that maximizes the Nintendo 64 controller capabilities and allows for what I consider, for the first-time, the ability to manipulate a videogame character with real-world stealth techniques that are practically accurate.

WinBack: Covert Operations – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Violence, Mild Language

WinBack: Covert Operations – Second Opinion

All in all, Winback surprised me, it's faults like the graphics and music (Chi and I agree here) and AI (I think it needs some work) take it down a bit but they certainly don't ruin it. Often, I was able to do things, like a duck and roll for a sweet shot of an unsuspecting guard that looked real and certainly felt rewarding once I did it.

WinBack: Covert Operations

Game Description: In the role of Jean-Luc, players navigate through detailed 3D environments. The main character is diplayed from a thrid-person perspective that is perfect to show off Couger's 350 different actions. Next to the usual camera control, players can fire their weapons by pressing A or open doors, pick up items and press buttons. The B-button lets you reload your gun at any time, Z is for crouching, and C-Down locks you in your current position to let you roll or jump. The game covers four main stages, each of which is broken down into smaller areas that players may explore for additional weapons and items.

Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Blood, Animated Violence

Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions – Review

As soon as I started up, I was greeted by all the awe and great feelings I had when I first picked the game up. I remembered every bit of hype that preceded its release and the amount of praise MGS received when its release finally came. VR Missions comes with 300 missions for me to complete and offers a few bonuses, which I'll get into later. All of the missions are fun and some are indeed very clever.
