IGN: Metal Gear Online Hands-On

The Metal Gear experience has always been a solitary experience. It's been great and gamers have embraced it for the awesome single-player gameplay that it has brought to the table, but there comes a point in a series' lifespan when it's time to expand. Time to break the former boundaries of one's youth, spread those wings and fly into the world of online gaming. Beta keys are currently making their way into some lucky gamers' hands, but at this year's New York Comic-Con Metal Gear Online was on display for anyone to come up and play for themselves.

The story is too old to be commented.

"As any Metal Gear fan would expect, there's a cover system for players to utilize in Online. It doesn't work as in other third-person shooters, but it serves its purpose. The one escape maneuver is a dive move that will undoubtedly be used like crazy by online players. There were pieces of cover throughout each of the three levels in Blood Bath – catwalks are above, there's a middle level where the bulk of the action takes place and a lower sewer-like level – and people constantly dove behind them to evade my barrage of bullets. In other deathmatch games I would have just lobbed a grenade at the press of a button but in true Metal Gear fashion you'll need to select grenades from a menu to use them."

Reading that passage, clearly it doesnt sound like he was all too thrilled with it.

Sounds like he was being nice...

I think he was more pissed off by the fact that he was getting owned.
