METAL GEAR SOLID:PORTABLE OPS [also known as MGS-PO or MPO] is a stealth game and is the third game from the metal gear series to released for PSP and its the first game that you can actually do whatever you want [the first 2 was like a puzzly you will tell snake where to go and he will go but in this game you can walk,run,walk slowly,change the weapons etc.] you will be playing as SNAKE also known as NAKED SNAKE also known as BIG BOSS he is the main character in the game
Step 1: Little More Advanced
In the 2nd or 3rd mission that you play you will learn how to recruit an enemy soldier so he can join you and help you,you can atleast recruit 1 soldier but in my opinion you HAVE to recruit more cause every soldier have a weakness and a strength point and some soldiers can heal other soldiers,some can run faster,some can work as technical soldiers so they can increase the ammo of some weapons
there is 4 teams that you can recruit soldiers to,each team can have 4 soldiers:
team ALPHA is the main team its where snake is and you can add 3 other soldiers to that team
these are the sneaking unit team which means that these 4 teams are the ones who will fight other soldiers and go to combat.remember you can play with 1 team at a time.
there is also a SPY UNIT:in spy units you can deploy comrades to another place that you went to so they can spy on them and brings you information..in each place you can deploy 4 comrades
there is also a TECHNICAL UNIT:there is no teams in tech unit but the soldiers that you put in it will improve your weapons and increase the ammo capacity to you weapons and they can produce weapons like knife and thermal goggles and night vision goggles etc. but they cant produce guns and rifles,they can improve the guns and rifles.
there is also a MEDICAL UNIT:also here there is also no teams but the soldiers you put in it can increase your life meter length and produce small medical kits and large medical kits
there is also a INDEPENDENT UNIT:the soldiers that you dont put them in any unit will be here
there is also a ROOKIES UNIT:the soldiers that you recruited will be here,you can later move them to any unit you want
there is also a PRISONERS UNIT: the soldiers that you recruited before they join you they will be in the prisoners unit/list.
Step 2: Good/bad Stuff
the good stuff;
*Excellent, thought-provoking story capably reveals much more about Snake
*Fully featured multiplayer options include game sharing, online play, and more *Excellent presentation, including superb graphics, sound, music, and speech
*High replay value.
the bad stuff;
*its missing the 3D scenes

*no matter how much you shoot and beat the same enemy soldier,he will never bleed.
