Sneaky Bastard: Solid Snake

Finished Metal Gear Solid

As part of my chronological Metal Gear pilgrimage, I finished replaying Metal Gear Solid, the game I bought my PSX for, back in the day.
It is quite unbelievable how ugly the game looks by today's standards. I don't know whether this is because I played it on the PS2, but I also noticed quite a few clipping errors and other assorted glitches -- things that did not stood out that much when I played it the first time around.

There had been a long time between playing Metal Gear: Solid Snake and Metal Gear Solid when I played this game the first time around, but when you play them back-to-back, it is very easy to spot the similarities. MGS is not a 'remake' like millenia suggested, but it does have quite a few similar events, like Collapse )

On to Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty!

Oh, and I got the rank of 'Leopard'. And a bandana!
