PlayTest: Metal Gear Solid Mobile

Editor’s Rating: The Good: Core gameplay is fun; camera phone integration; stellar graphics; makes waiting for MGS4 slightly easier. The Bad: This snack only makes you more hungry. The Bottom Line: A tech bombshell that happens to be a lot of fun too.

It’s been nearly four years since publisher Konami (KNM) established its mobile games division, re-releasing Frogger as its first title. Oh, how far things have come since. The company stopped by last week to show off its newest triple-A cell phone-based title, Metal Gear Solid Mobile. The game is the first fully 3D Metal Gear title with graphics that come mind-blowingly close to Playstation 2 quality. It’s due out towards the end of Feb. and will be exclusive to Verizon’s (VZ) on-demand download service for three months before becoming available on other carriers.
