OK, it didnt just combine those things together, it added a few strokes of genious to it, like the ability to distract guards by knocking on walls and the codec, not just a way of the computer to communicate to you, you could call them on it, it is certainly a great game.
GRAPHICS~In its day, these were incredible, smooth textures, guards who actually did things other than patrol, if they were tired, they would yawn if they were cold, they would shver, overall they were pretty impressive.
GAMEPLAY~Damn good, it haqd a good mix of action, stealth and some pretty cool boss battles, like one where: you face a guy called "Pshyco mantis" who can read your mind, and you cant attack him, cos he knows what you are gonna do next, so, after a while he reads into your memory card and tells you how you have played the game so far (he says you are a wreckless soldier if you dont save much and die a lot etc) so, after a while of dodging his attacks, your colonel calls you on the codec, and tells you to unplug your controller and memory card and plug them into slot 2... Genious! So hen you have done that, the screen turns black and... it says on the screen VIDEO... no... HIDEO of course! The name of the maker of the game! hideo kojima! and so the battle goes on, with him no longer being able to read your mind/memory card.
STORY~Incredible, what more can i say?
VALUE/LENGTH~A long game if you decide to whatch the cutscenes and on your first time, it is a lot longer, some VR (Virtual realty) missions ( like training missions. About 3-5 hours on your second time.
THIS GAME IS PROBABLY THE BEST PS1 GAME EVER, NO GAME GIVES YOU SUCH A GREAT STORYLINE, IT IS A GAME THAT STARTED OFF ONE OF THE BIGGEST GAME SERIES OF ALL TIME, AND YOU CAN SEE WHY. YOU MUST PLAY THIS GAME
