Merry Gear Solid: A D-Ported Christmas Special
Ho ho ho! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you! As you have seen on the video (or if you haven’t quit reading and watch it now) there was no actual review of the game. So I thought I’d take a moment to write a few serious thoughts on the game. The game is exactly what it looks like, which is Metal Gear Solid with a Christmas theme. Only you play as Santa Claus instead of Snake. It doesn’t get much more complicated than that.
Though there are a few annoying aspects to the game. For starters the song Winter Wonderland plays on repeat through the entire game. Needless to say it does not add to the atmosphere. Secondly the game’s text boxes seem to be too big for the default resolution setting. If you notice in the video some of the text was cut off. That was straight from the game. All in all though if you are a Metal Gear fan there is no going wrong with this free game*. After all even Big Boss believes in Santa Claus.
