I've first played this on the Xbox, and was absolutely thilled with the history, the philosophy behind, and the amazing direction from the genius that is Hideo Kojima. This is one of those games that makes you think about our reality, question our history and realize that a good tale can be told through a game as well as in a good book. Kojima deals with questions that dwells within humanity with such refinement, that sometimes you forget that this is a game that you play to have fun. And there are fun moments, sad moments, action, you have the whole package. The vita version has an improved graphical quality over the original, but it is the storytelling that will keep you glued through the game till the very end. One of the best games EVER made. A must play in any system.
