Metal Gear Acid 2
Publisher: Konami
Developer: Kojima Productions

Call this one electric jazz on acid. I'm always a sucker for a 3D gimmick, especially when it's part of a smart game. That's the case with METAL GEAR ACID 2, one of those card-based tactical games. Don't let the 500 cards stop you from playing. The 3D mode lets you view game play and trailers for a wonderful spatial effect that will make you want to reach out and touch the virtual world of tough guy Solid Snake. You can even link the game to MGS3: Subsistence (but only after you acquire the camera option on the first disc).

  • Here's how ACID 2 works. The cards you draw help you move along in the game. These cards are often like power-ups and they enhance the abilities of Solid along with his varied weapons. You'll need these powers to complete the missions in the game. But don't think of this game as something like poker or bridge because it has cards. It's full of action, very good graphics, and an easy-to-use interface. Add those very engaging 3D moments, and you've got a game that's much advanced when compared to its predecessor, last year's Metal Gear Acid.
