GameZone's Steven Hopper writes,
"The game's controls took some getting used to, due to a manual aiming. Combat is similar toMetal Gear Solid 3, as the game utilizes the same type of CQC system as its predecessor. The face buttons also help by controlling the camera, freeing up the D-Pad for aiming and dedicating the analog nub to movement. Generally, the controls are comparable to those in Portable Ops, and pushing forward slowly to walk and quicker to run is a nice touch that helps to make up for the PSP's analog nub shortcomings."
