Masterpiece, and amazing they crammed it all onto the PSP.

I played it first on the PSP Go and it was tricky to play with all the button requirements, but portable gold.

Later got the PS3 port and spent hours on it. Got the platinum trophy, which is one of if not the plat that I'm proudest of. So much depth and hidden stuff. I even bought the strategy guide book for it which is something I almost never do. That was probably the last strategy book I have bought, and still have it.

Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops says hi

Portable Ops being canon is highly debated.

The events would make a lot of sense, but there seems to be disagreement based on a line by Miller in Peace Walker. That said, this author probably subscribes to the idea that Portable Ops is not canon.

MGS4 shows clips from Portable Ops in flashbacks. If that isn’t an endorsement what is?

FallenAngel1984182d ago

How is its canonocity in debate? Kojima even said that MPO’s story was crucial for MGS4. A lot of the hype going into MPO was that it was the first canon handheld title.

Plus various story elements from MPO heavily impact the overall arc of the series. MGS4 even featured flashbacks of scenes from MPO. There’s too much going on there to act like non of it is retroactively canon.

This game was so good. The nod to assassins creed w/ the haystacks was dope. Wish as much care went into 5..

Z501182d ago

Huh? 5 has the best gameplay in the series and tons more 'audio', for example. Care in this context is obviously subjective.

MGSV is pretty much a bigger and better version Peace Walker in my opinion. I understand the criticism of 5 when people talk about the story feeling incomplete and rushed at certain points, but that doesn't take away from the accomplishents of the game. Despite it's shortcomings it's easily a Top 10 game of this generation for me.

This is my favorite MGS game, and I still play it from time to time. It's amazing how well it holds up, and playing on Vita basically fixes the only real issue, which was not having a second stick. Just another reason why probably never having another Sony handheld is just so sad...:c
