So I finally played this game for the first time. Got it from Gamefly and got through the first act in about 3 hours or so last night. Graphics: 10/10 Sound & Music: 9/10 Gameplay: 8/10 Story: ?/10 Only Metal gears I have played are the two originals on the NES. I never could get into the PS1/PS2 games. I can appreciate this game for what it is. I think it is the best looking and best flowing game I have played in years. I would probably rate it the best game of the next gen systems. However I don't know what the fuck is going on. I also don't like the whole Japanese Soap Opera kinda shit. It more annoys me than anything. I am still on the fence on if I should mail this out tonight or just sit through it and beat it. Overall I can understand the hype and honestly its one of the few games I think stands up to the hype. But the story is just right over my head. I am getting it - I just don't really care about it nor care about any of the actors in it. Any input on if I should just carry on or mail it back?
