GB Color's perfection!

Metal Gear(aka Ghost Babel) is the best action game of Game Boy Color. In the game, Solid Snake has to go to a small country on Africa and destroy a new Metal Gear.But Snake only accepts the mission when he remembered that that country was other arena against other Metal Gear at the past. The game's graphics are good for GB Color.The sound is medium, not bad, not good after all. The good part is the controls.And the game is very enjoyable. Could be the only problem that the Saving is really bad?Many times the game is saved is really reseted.

The best:The best GB Color game

The Worst: The save is bad

Not on GC, but yes at GB:VR Missions
