Author's comments and explanations:

this game is not a part of the official timeline, and never mentions MG2; it instead acts as an alternate reality sequel to MG (MSX version since it actually HAD a Metal Gear).

there are a few boring parts ill admit: the cardboard box conveyor belts in level 5; the vents in levels 8 & 9; the 50 floor elevator rides in level 11.

however, i do very well on all boss battles (Gander and the Hind D were he only problems; the Hind will stop blinking briefly from time to time because i couldn't get to it faster) and complete every level with an Excellent rank.

some pointers before you ask:

highlights (for me):

lastly, much like mookish said about his FF1 run, there will be some who watch this and find it boring. im sorry... i did everything i could but some parts are just very tedious and boring.


adelikat: Rejecting. While any one section of this game by itself is entertaining, as a whole this movie is very repetitive and eventually boring. Game length is also a problem. While there are RPG's whis long (and longer). They are extremely short compared to what a theorical "speed run" would be (most of those game would take many days on a console). This element contributed to the entertainment value of the movie.
