In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

2010 GR Awards: Best PSP Game

Posted on Tuesday, December 21 @ 15:02:38 Eastern by


The definition of a perfect gaming experience is not just the quality of its presentation or the depth of its gameplay mechanics, but how the developers gradually expose the player to both aspects. Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker has a great story, beautiful visuals, and some genuinely heart-pounding boss battles. But what truly sets this title apart from similar games is the ability to capture, subdue, and ultimately hire your enemies. The stealth-based gameplay of Peace Walker is enjoyable, but the act of capturing and reassigning staff members is just as addictive. Kojima Productions did a stand up job in making the R&D section simple and understandable, and you'll be upgrading and developing weapons in no time.

Peace Walker is really two games in one. While you can proceed through the missions step by step to find out how Big Boss creates Outer Heaven, you also get to build his fortress from the ground up. The game encourages you to replay missions several times in order to fine-tune your stealth and combat strategies, as well as discover hidden items and level up your weapons. And doing so also creates the opportunity to capture only the most qualified enemies. Kojima delivered the best Metal Gear game to date, which is a surprising statement to make for a PSP title. The foundation that he and his team at Kojima Productions have laid out for future installments is truly amazing, and Peace Walker deserves to be called the best PSP exclusive of 2010.

Runners-Up (in alphabetical order) - God of War: Ghost of Sparta, Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable, Valkyria Chronicles II, Ys Seven
