Metal Gear PSP swoops a massive 40/40
Famitsus reviewers each give it a perfect 10
Japan gets Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker next week. As usual, this means first reviews from Japan's largest games magazine, Famitsu, hit this week.
Leaked info from this week's issue show a perfect score for the PSP title. Four reviewers each gave the game 10 out of 10.
The reviewers had praise for both main play styles: single player and co-op. In single player, the game is "always thrilling," wrote one reviewer. This reviewer also commented that co-op play offers "a new play feeling." Another reviewer said that the game is fun enough with single player alone.
The magazine listed a 30 to 40 hour clear time for the story, which means quite a lengthy game even if you don't try out the multiplayer components. And, of course, there's that whole Mother Base component which should provide plenty of additional play time.
We're going to have to wait until June for Peace Walker, but it's looking like the wait will be worthwhile.
