While Metal Gear Online doesn’t push the boundaries of what can be done in an online game, it does offer a suitable experience for Metal Gear's transition into an online environment.

We like

  • Versatile conflicts and gun selection
  • Sneaking Mission mode
  • Beautiful graphics

We dislike

  • Near-broken log in system
  • One free character per console
  • CQC and cover systems don’t work nearly as well as in MGS4

It is now that I attempt to forget Metal Gear Solid 4’s chilling dialogue an...
