Solid Snake has been at the forefront of the Metal Gear games since he first appeared in 1997, but we still don't know anything about the legend that precedes him. It dates back to a legendary soldier known as Naked Snake, or 'Big Boss,' that once waged a war against the entire world. In Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, we get to learn about the events that shaped the entire Tactical Espionage Action series.

Set in the 1970s, Peace Walker sees you take command of the 'Soldiers Without Borders' crack squad as Big Boss is commissioned to help neutralise a conflict rising in the traditionally peaceful nation of Costa Rica. For Metal Gear Solid fans this will be a treat, as the soldiers will be known in time as the founders of the infamous 'Outer Heaven.'

The gameplay is familiar to those who have played the Metal Gear Solid series before, but with some key advancements that push the action genre to its limit. Not only will you get to control Big Boss and use stealth to accomplish your mission, but you will be in control of your Soldiers Without Borders squad and try your management skills at the same time.

If the mash of RPG, action and RTS genres doesn't surprise you, then try this on for size – Peace Walker is optimised for co-operative play. Up to four players can join forces and work together to tackle various objectives. The Co-Op Ring allows you to share items, equipment and life gauges during battle and the Snake Formation sees one player take point while the others defend.
