With awesome stealth tactics and a good story Metal Gear Solid 2 looks amazing. But bland action and boring pace ruin it

The gameplay is great and will leave any Metal Gear fan satisfted. The stealth point action is cool and you feel just like a sleuth, and that feeling of power is awesome. The at times bland action bring this game down though. You feel almost way to sneaky, all though that is great, theres just way to much sneaking after awhile and you begin to question, "Why so sneaky?".But still the shooting is good, not very good though. The aiming isnt that great and will leave you frustrated at times. Its hard to shoot and do things but thats all parrt of the experiance.
In a graphical perspective this game is just absolutly beutiful. For a PS2 games standards this ranks up there as possibly the best looking game for the console. When rain falls it bounces off your suit, when you smoke, smoke comes up from the ciggerette. Everything looks great and especially the cut scenes that are just fantastic.
The story is right where the first Metal Gear Solid left off. You play as snake and you go to find the bomb metal gear. THats pretty much it.
All in all this game is great, but is overrated in a sense. A MUST PLAY for fans but newcomers will feel confused and mad.
