It's a sad testament to where the industry is heading when the requirements for playing the latest title is to think you're smart and to see who has the longest Elitist Stick.

DE simply touches upon the issues, MGS2 explores them in vast dialog. Which is the point of good storytelling.

    I just got my hand on a copy of the magazine and some of the internet translation has been fucked up.I do speak German. They complained that the story was too bewildering but they never complained about too much shooting per se. What it says is that the Boss battles are not nearly as tactical as in past MGS games and rely too much on simple run and gun tactics and not enough immagination....
