Ahead of its time
27 February 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This game was awesome. Up to this point in my life, in 1988 and only 6, I had only played nintendo games like Super Mario Bros. which were fun, but the plots weren't half as involved as Maniac Mansion. No game had ever really played like a movie before. This paved the way for the masterpiece of Metal Gear Solid. It's too bad nintendo was so big on censorship, it kind of "PG" rated the game. The game had a lot of realism, but because of the censorship by nintendo it sugar-coated a lot of elements of the game. This is still a masterpiece and turning point of video games. Another masterpiece for George Lucas and it's very cool he made the change to video games. I'm waiting for a re-release and possibly a re-make.
