I bought this game about a week after it was released and I have being so addicted to the online mode that I haven't even touched campaign yet. The gameplay and ablity to do most of the same things as in campaign make playing online very enjoyable. THe rating system and maps are also taken from campaign. My only wish is that they would concentrate on making an online only Metal Gear game so that they can put more into it.
with time, Metal Gear Solid series only becomes better & better. this one you have a great amount of freedom with the 1080* camera view. the camouflage & tree climbing makes it even more enjoyable. the limited edition gives you an edited version by kojima of all the cinematic sequences & the 1st trailer of Metal Gear Solid 4.
This is like the version that everyone wanted. All of the complaints regarding the camera are now fixed, and team Kojima has even upped the ante by providing an online mode along with a lot of extra goodies. I envy those who will be playing this game for the first time as I'll never be able to get the same thrill again. A definite must buy for anyone who considers themselves to be a gamer.
