Metareview: Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

Now that you've read our review for Hideo Kojima's latest, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, it's time we knocked the cardboard box off the rest of the industry's thoughts. What did the critics have to say? CQC the reviews below to find out:
  • IGN (95/100): "This game is insanely deep...a masterpiece. Not only is it in the running for the title of greatest game ever on the PSP, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is one of the greatest games in the entire Metal Gear franchise."
  • 1UP (91/100): "It's at once true to its heritage yet willing to spin the Metal Gear format in a new and entertaining direction. And while the fallout from these changes does occasionally undermine the action, those small moments of frustration and compromise are forgivable in the context of all that Peace Walker does well."
  • GameTrailers (91/100): "While we miss the crazy bad guys and refined controls, Peace Walker definitely lives up to the Metal Gear name. Base management adds a deeper sense of growth to the experience and there's plenty to come back to after you finish the story."
  • Eurogamer (80/100): "Mother Base, co-op and Extra Ops are great additions to the Metal Gear formula and luxuriously comfortable fits for handheld play. The subdued campaign is not Kojima at his histrionic and surprising best, but it arguably offers the tightest stealth gameplay since Snake Eater or even the first Metal Gear Solid."
