Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker Review

Once referred to as Metal Gear Solid 5, this PSP-entry in Hideo Kojima's franchise is very much a canonical part of the series. Players once again assume the role of Naked Snake (aka Big Boss) 10 years after the events of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and 4 years after Portable Ops.

The shining aspect of Peace Walker is the story. While MGS3 did a great job of explaining the origin of Big Boss, the original antagonist of Metal Gear, it's great to have Big Boss' descent from hero to villain better developed. Of course, Kojima's classic themes of nuclear weaponry are present in this Cold War era game focusing on deterrence and the concept of mutually assured destruction. Hell, there's even a character named Dr. Strangelove! Read more »

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker Censored in Japan

Andriasang reports that a scene depicting a "standard element... absolutely necessary for MGS" has been removed from the Japanese version of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker (PSP) in order to secure a C rating (15 year-old), though the North American and European versions will not have this scene removed.

Leaving the scene in would have made the game rate a "D" in Japan, which corresponds to an M-rating in the United States. The game has been rated as T in the US (13 years-old) and creator Hideo Kojima is not happy about the differing standards. Read more »
