Metal Gear Online First Impressions - Despite being available on Friday I only managed to get a few playthroughs on Metal Gear Online over the last three days. Combine a hectic weekend schedule with the ridiculously long download time for the MGO update and you don't get much time with the game. Here's what I noticed.
- Only one map is available, not a bad one but its kind of lame there aren't any others to play
- The old "hide in a cardboard box" trick is still around, so is placing a magazine. Hiding in a box will actually work in multiplayer because fake boxes are all over but I don't know many people who'll fall for picking up a magazine
- In addition to boxes, gamers can now hide in metal barrels. Not only can you hide in barrels but you can roll around in them as well. I haven't tried rolling over anyone in one but I plan on trying
- Besides online multiplayer (Capture the Flag, Base Defense, Team and Solo Deathmatches) the beta offers some Solo and Novice training. This is a pretty handy feature so gamers can get used to Metal Gears unorthodox and occassionally dysfunctional control scheme
- There were tons of weapons but my favorite was the stun knife. Jab it in an opponent and it sends electricity through their body and the drop like a sack of potatoes
- As in almost every other MGS game, the in-game characters move awfully slow. Why couldn't Kojimasan have included a sprint button?
If memory serves Metal Gear Online will be a seperate title from MGS4. Does it look like its worth it so far? That's tough to say but at this point only a diehard Metal Gear fan (like myself) will probably enjoy it. If you're not an MGS fanboy and don't workship the ground Kojima walks on, the single player should be more than enough to keep you happy.

I'm still working on that one myself. I haven't quite figured that one yet. Maybe I need a bowling glove or something The pool and darts are easier.
