    Entry #2

    The second time playing this game was a four hour smash brothers extravaganza. This game is great to play for large periods of time because every battle is different, and with different combinations of teams and power ups, this game does not get old.
    The characters are all established through previous video games and so they already have a strong familiarity with the players. The game has classic characters such as Donkey Kong, Link, and Mario. As well as some more recent characters such as Ness. However, every character is unique and has different advantages and disadvantages.
    This game is a classic for a reason. It is a clear demonstration of how a game can lack complexity, yet still be addicting and fun.

    This game is really great for multi player game play. It allows for up to four players to play simultaneously on one screen without the annoyance of split screens. Although, the single player mode of this game is not very good because the game is made for multi player it seems. There is not very much to do in the game other than fight, and this makes the game rather simple. But, it is this simplicity that makes the game so great. It is fun to play and easy to play over and over.
    The game does have variations of game exhaustion such as health and number of lives. But, it also has the option to get power ups during the game, allowing for more attack options.
    This game is great for hanging out with friends and makes playing video games into a social event.

    The second time around playing this game was just as amazing as the first. This game goes into very good detail in the game play. The sniper battle with The End, an elderly sniping master, was intense and realistic. The first time playing this battle (before learning tricks to beat him) involved a few hours of sitting and waiting for someone to get hungry and have to hunt for more food. This was far better than any sniper situation I have ever encountered because it was not run, run and bang, bang, it was a more realistic battle involving patients and skill.
    This game is segmented by challenges as well as narative segmentations. This creates a gameplay that is both difficult and addicting because the player becomes interested in not only the game play but the story itself. With an interesting variation of game exhaustions (health, stamina, medical equipment, and in some cases time) this game is unrivaled by any in its genre...At least in my opinion. It is a game that one can play over and over.

    This game is so cool. It is one of the most realistic, nitty-gritty, action game I have ever played. This game is not like the fantasy world of health packs and power ups. If Snake gets injured he has to give him self medical treatment in the field. You have to hunt to eat, and if you don't then snake gets tired. The hand to hand combat is intense and the camoflouge can not be found in any other game.
    This game puts the player in the fighting, involving them in every aspect. There are a series of tricks that one can play on the enemy, and along with taking hostages, avoiding traps, sniping enemies and setting mine traps, this game is the best MSG since the original.
    The characters are established throughout gameplay by the usual MSG intercom, but the cut scenes are more realistic and the story line in captivating.
    This game is really somthing else, and I am excited to play it again.
