Perhaps one of the best mobile games to come along in a while

At the end of last month I posted about the new Metal Gear game for SmartPhone called Social Ops. It's a Unity-based title and will be available for purchase on GREE's mobile game network. The Metal Gear game series has literally exploded this year, and it's probably due to the fact that this is the 25th anniversary of Metal Gear, something definitely worth celebrating.

We have Konami games development showing off their newest Metal Gear game Ground Zeroes and Rising Revengeance, not to mention the Metal Gear game collection in HD, added trophies for Guns of the Patriots, and so on. Social Ops is going to be somewhat similar to what Metal Gear Acid was like in the respect that instead of sneaking, stealth, hand to hand in your face combat that the Metal Gear game series is known for, this one will be card based.

That might or might not turn some people off, a good point made from the source article at TouchArcade yesterday, as there are those that believe Metal Gear should stay right where it is better known, a stealth and combat type game play experience. But then again, the Metal Gear Acid games did have a positive impact, at least among certain gamers.

Maybe we can have the best of both worlds at the same time. Look at the cards below that Hideo Kojima recently talked about on his Twitter account and see what you think so far. Perhaps this might be one of the best mobile games to hit the streets in a good while.
