Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

While the game can be quite frustrating at times and there is still an over-abundance of cut-scenes, it also packs a great story and some gripping gameplay. It can also be very cheesy but that is to be expected for a Metal Gear Solid game. It requires patience but it is definitely worth it.

Gameplay: It takes a while to get used to all the changes but it is worth it.

Graphics: Very impressive.

Sound: Quality voice acting and fitting music

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

Metal Gear Solid 4 has so many cool gameplay features that initially it might feel a bit overwhelming. Sneaking through battlefields, taking on bizarre enemies and bosses while unraveling the complex story is gripping stuff and will keep you hooked to the end. The cut-scenes drag on a bit, but that is to be expected from a MGS game. One of the “must have” titles for PS3.

Gameplay: Compelling, varied and a blast to play.

Graphics: Excellent attention to detail.

Sound: Excellent voice acting and music

Metal Gear Ac!d

Metal Gear Ac!d

While it is quite a departure from the previous Metal Gear games, it is definitely entertaining and addictive enough to make it a classic in its own right. Even if card games isn’t your thing, give Ac!d a try.

Gameplay: Very addictive with only some small annoyances.

Graphics: Good looking, but some camera issues.

Sound: No speech, but nice music and effects

Assassin’s Creed III

Assassin’s Creed III

While the lead character, Conner, is not quite as charismatic or interesting as his predecessor, Ezio, the game is definitely not lacking in ambition. While it is the largest entry in the series to date, it can get bogged down in all kinds of menial tasks. The story is interesting and Desmond finally has his chance to shine but the story feels overly scripted with little of the freedom that the series was based on.

Gameplay: Large and varied but less focussed than previous installments.

Graphics: Beautiful in places but the setting is rather drab.

Sound: Quality audio and effects
