Gear Solid: Portable Ops is the latest instalment in Hideo
Kojima's legendary Metal Gear Solid series. The game
features a full stealth-action single player story mode and
key wireless features allowing players to recruit and play
as a unique squadron of battle-hardened mercenaries.
in 1970, Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops follows directly
on from the events of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater,
with the player assuming the role of series hero Snake (aka
Big Boss), as he puts together the elite Foxhound unit made
famous in earlier Metal Gear titles, and is instigating
a bloody revolt with his treacherous Fox unit.

portion of the ongoing Metal Gear timeline, as players participate

This game introduces a new team-building dimension to the
action, that allows you to capture and recruit characters
as you progress through the levels. Once caught and deprogrammed,
you can assign them to different units that will perform different
functions, such as healing team-mates, gathering intelligence
and creating new items. Each character is rated on a series
of attributes, giving a wide variety in building the ideal
squad and creating different teams that are best suited to
different types of combat situations.
European version of the game offers an additional 12 characters
than were available on the Japanese and US editions. It also
features support for massive online battles in ten areas specifically
designed for multiplayer encounters - two more than the Japanese
and US version of the game - letting up to six players take
their custom squads online and battle in stealthy encounters
across several different modes of play. When
in trouble you have the option of surrendering or risk permanently
losing one of your comrades.
