Metal Gear Solid: Touch sure looks a lot like the other games in the console series, and you may be excited to peer over Old Snake's shoulder and gun down his adversaries from Metal Gear Solid 4. But MGS Touch is still a bit of a letdown. Despite Konami's best efforts, this game lacks some of the magic of the Metal Gear series and would best be left out of the canon. MGS Touch is a shooting gallery instead of a stealth game. Metal Gear Solid: Touch runs through some of the big set piece battles from the first half or so of Metal Gear Solid 4. The console game's fantastically intricate story and stellar cutscenes--two of the MGS4's main selling points for aficionados of the series--are glossed over with quick text summaries before each of the game's missions.
If you grew up in the 80s, you knew about Metal Gear for the Nintendo. Shootouts like this one are a common part of the action in Metal Gear Solid Touch -- impressive graphics, but none of the stealth-based action fans expect.
One game. One morning commute. So the big news here is that Konami is taking the potential for mobile gaming very seriously. The fact that they brought their cash cow, Solid Snake, to the iPhone is as sure a sign as any. On the home consoles, MGS is synonymous with cinematic stealth action. But how does the gameplay translate here? Maybe they should call it " Metal Dog McCree.
Since the iPhone and iPod Touch don't really do epic—at least not on the scale that current-generation hardware can—the experience has been whittle down considerably. Gone is the stealthy "tactical espionage action," replaced by touchscreen tapping and arcade-style shooting. To call it Metal Gear meets Duck Hunt isn't unfair. But is catering to the platform, giving hardcore fans something to play with on the go, a bad thing? The game controls beautifully, with reliable aiming and shooting, and has similarly attractive visuals. MGS Touch actually provides a decent challenge, especially if you're looking to perfect your scores and acquire all of the game's unlockables. It's a fun little shooter with the Metal Gear Solid license carefully applied.
Completing levels awards you a score based on speed, accuracy and remaining health. A rank such as "lobster" is awarded to the less skilled amongst us, and "scorpion" at the top end. These scores can then be used as currency in Drebin's Shop, where you can purchase art and backgrounds for your iPhone, which gives you fair incentive to replay the game to grab that picture of Sunny that costs , points. A large part of this game seems to be about marketing Konami's other products across all platforms, where players can read plot summaries of previous Metal Gear games presumably to inspire them to purchase said games. Metal Gear Solid Touch also includes the ability to access Konami's iPhone web page via the unfortunately titled "Touch Konami" button, so you can purchase more iPhone games from the company.
