You thought Lara was cool? Dante? Link? None of them can even compare to the coolness level of Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid!! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Hehe. I just started this game after finishing Whiplash and I'm amazed once again. All the detail in this game... :eek:

For example, you can shoot this tub of ice in a bar in the first area (of MGS 2) and the ice will fly everywhere. The incredible thing is they actually begin to melt before your eyes, the bigger ice melts slower than the little ones!!

Another thing is how Snake and the enemies respond to the Japanese models in the posters on the locker doors, lol. Funny stuff.

If you like stealth, blood, top notch plot and graphics, this game's for you!

Cause games get better...

The PC strength is also it's weakness...options.

If like consoles games could be made specifically for the hardware, it would be far more impressive http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

After all, consoles are all about 4 or 5 years behind PC technology...

Yeah av played that game, and the first one was amazing.
If you just stand and watch the ice, it will melt, lmao. :D
Also keep shooting that glass about 20 times, then stand and watch as it ripples and shatters into thousands of pieces, AMAZING.
That game is ace, you can also shoot the seagulls when you get onto the big shell. And if you are lucky, it will poo on the camera when you are in first person mode.

Snake is cool, but he can't compare to Lara. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif Lara, Samus, Ratchet, Jak, and Sam Fisher are all the best characters EVER made!!! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

Things to try on MGS 1:

Keep on annoying Mei Ling via Codec. Eventually she puts her tongue out at you.

Keep staring at Meryl before you go into the commander's room and she will blush and question what you're staring at. You can just press the viewing button or you can use your scope. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

When you're in the wolf-dog cave, when Meryl says "I thought you were good with dogs," punch her once and hide in a cardboard box. A puppy will come and pee on you. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Before you go to the door after defeating Sniper Wolf, there are rats running along a pipe under where your enemy once stood. Start sniping 'em and you get a telling off. You can also kick and punch the ravens on the lift before you go to face Vulcan Raven. Kill one and he expresses his anger at the death of his friend.

That game is one of my all time faves. Deep storyline, very realistic and believable characters and it really makes you think. I found myself really feeling sadness for a pile of pixels and crying at it. To make someone feel emotions for a fictional character, you know that it is a damned good and believable game. I then thought how silly I felt for crying at a game! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/clown.gif

It is actually a very psychological affair that covers some of the stuff on my A-level syllabus-free will vs. determinism, PTSD and the biological explanation of behaviour (genes) all rolled into digital fun! :D They should make ALL revision guides like this! :D It has helped my understanding and was one of the best psychology lessons I could hope for.

If they can make TR7 even as half as good as Metal Gear Solid 2, I will be happy. If they can make the plot of TR 7 even 1/3 as complex as MGS 2, I'll be happy too. I can only dream that Crystal can make TR on the same level as MGS 2, because I know they can't. That's how great I think this game is ;)

Hideo Kojima is amazing :D

Mr. Kojima deserves a prize along with Toby Gard and Miyamoto! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif I am twenty and can still enjoy Mario, that's why I make the last nomination. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

I have heard Snake in Japanese-amusing. :D I have the original MGS 1 sound track that I ordered from a company who sell Japanimation/Manga products. My friend is really big on that stuff and I'm only just learning. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif My friend would give Otacon a run for his money! I love the Japanese art style. I have the MGS1 solution book soley for the art work.

I tell every one he is my boyfriend lol. I even emailed Insomniac games and i told them if Ratchet ever gets a girlfriend that they should name her Melonie. haha! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif I LOVE Ratchet and Clank, those games rock. I am really looking forward to the third game, especially since it has a 4 player mode!
