Here's my review
-Solid gameplay with only a couple exploits/glitches
--Kicking enemies through walls made parts of this that might have been too hard extremely easy.
--Slight brush inclines tended to get the character stuck at the ends of stairs or when running through cargo containers
-Voice acting was decent, but didn't match the subtitles.
--During one particular intermission, it seems like the characters are attempting sarcasm, but it just doesn't go with the rest of the narrative.
--At the end, when potentially life ending peril is announced to the main character he responds with "Oh, great" when even Snake, would have retorted with "YOU COULDN'T HAVE ____ UNTIL BEFORE YOU ____!? What kind of operation IS THIS?"
-Music Not bad, but not too noticeable most of the time.
--Metal Gear's combat music is cool and fitting, but something more original would be great.
Rating: I'd give it a 7. With the difficulty tuned down in one or two parts and the two glitches fixed, it's easily worth a replay.
A sequel would be a welcome sight in my eyes. Longer, slightly more functionality(maybe in the form of a gadget or two), and more original content, and you've got a real winner.

I encountered a small glitch/bug today. When playing the mission where you had to infiltrate the ship, I found a guard, shooting grenades from his grenade launcher every 5 second, thus making it impossible to get by him. Restarting the mission did not fix this issue, so my guess is that it is a bug

Dude, I think they do this crap on purpose. I can't beat the tank battle because after loading the second missile, it won't let me fire my gun.

Not my style, and definitely challenging, but it is well detailed and the amount of work put into it shows for itself.

I'm just not into stealth games, and the amount of deaths and frustrations kept on mounting until I shut the mod off in anger.
