North America Retail Box ArtA card game version of Metal Gear is not an obviously appealing concept, unless it’s a quiet game of solitaire while you wait for the cut scenes to end. But that's exactly what Metal Gear Ac!d is. Snake’s movements and actions are dictated by a deck of cards, which allow him to do everything from lay explosives to hide under his trademark cardboard box. Unwanted card actions can be converted into movement points as you sneak around the grid based game map.It’s a highly peculiar idea, not helped by a particularly silly storyline and a deeply unhelpful camera system. Yet despite these shortcomings, the game is well suited to the portable format, and it looks and sounds just like the classic games. Once you get used to how it works it’s difficult not to become addicted. -- Harrison Dent
