Tactical espionage action. A cast of quirky bosses. A battle weary hero. It can only be one thing – Metal Gear Solid. 

To this day it remains a shining example of what can be accomplished with an innovative gameplay idea

Following on from the 1987 classic, Metal Gear Solid was an epic adventure of stealth and guile for the PS1. Spread over four discs, Hideo Kojima’s magnus opus set the benchmark for PS1 titles, and remains to this day one of the most popular games ever made.

We begin with our hero, Snake, emerging from the water, his task – to infiltrate a mysterious nuclear weapons disposal facility. Throughout the game we encounter a variety of foes, from the scary Psycho Mantis, to the sharp shooting and talking Revolver Ocelot. In every situation, the player is required to think tactically, use the resources available to them and stay hidden where possible. What made Metal Gear Solid so innovative is its stealth-based gameplay.

At this time, most other titles on the PS1 were straight-up action games. Metal Gear Solid engrossed the player through a pin-drop atmosphere, progressive score and tension you could cut with a knife. To this day it remains a shining example of what can be accomplished with an innovative gameplay idea, well designed cut-scenes and flawless execution.
