Much has been said about this landmark game; it brought cinematic style to video games in ways that had never been done before, it was innovative in innumerable ways (though a lot of the "innovation" had already been done by Kojima years earlier in Metal Gear 2 Solid Snake), and so many other exciting and memorable things. The only thing that holds this back from being a 10 for me is that the graphics DO NOT hold up and some of the voice acting is a bit hammy, but regardless, so much else about this game is beyond measure in terms of its impact and importance for the evolution of gaming in general that it deserves every single accolade thrown at it and then some. Amazing to say the least.
