FEATURED VOXPOP maca2kx Metal Gear Solid was a watershed moment in gaming for me. The graphics, at the time, were phenomenal; the story was winding and engaging; the gameplay was sharp and not above breaking the fourth wall when appropriate. It’s one of the few titles where the number of times I’ve...

What do these ratings mean?

Wow. This is quite a shocker. A game based on a toy based on a movie. Normally, you'd think, "Good god, this game looks like ****!" But, its actually quite good, before beating it that is. Because after you beat all the episodes in story mode, it's just, "Well, let's go play that stage again and again and again." That's one problem, replay value is good, but takes hours. And you don't get much out of it.

Another problem is some glitches. I'm not sure if it's just because the disc is dirty or something, but whenever I'm playing with someone, and we accidentally walk to the shop at the diner, it drops one of us out for no particular reason, then proceeds to make a loud, "I'm playing now" noise. Then there's the podracing stage. This has happened to me a couple times. I've got some money on the stage, and whenever I switch from one fragment to the other. It kills me for no reason whatsoever until I'm back at 0. Kinda sucks that way. And it sometimes freezes when I look at the minikits I got outside the diner.

All glitches aside, this is a great concept. Could be better, but hey.
