Metal Gear Solid Series – Top 5 Boss Battles

5. Olga (MGS2) For anyone who’s played MGS2 on Hard, the Olga battle is intense and incredibly challenging. On hard, She becomes a head shot sharpshooter and the battle elevates to Wild West Shooter proportions. Of course this isn’t even taking into account the amazing atmosphere, graphics and weather effects. 4. Fatman (MGS2) An incredibly […]

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots Review

Metal Gear Solid 4 Impressions – Act 5

—-SPOILERS AHEAD—- Well, a huge ship crashing into Raiden didn’t kill him after all. He returns in Act 5 without arms to help out Snake once again.

Metal Gear Solid 4 Impressions – Act I

I have fought the Frogs and lived to tell about it. That’s about as far as I have made it into Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots campaign, so don’t worry there will be no spoilers. In fact, I don’t think I have seen a cutscene yet that hasn’t been included in one […]
