The granddaddy of all stealth action games. Metal Gear (this version anyway) is what Hideo Kojima had in mind with the series. The graphics are great in comparison to the NES version, and this has more bosses, a bit more dialogue, and is generally more fun to play.
Well, the game is finished, and you -can- see a difference between the original version and this translation. Unfortunately, there seem to be a few context errors… spelling and such. It’s not too much of a problem. The new text really helps make sense out of the story (which was barely there to begin with).
There are two patches: One keeps the original game’s Engrish used in some weapon names, and the other corrects these errors.
Also, do NOT use the Metal Gear rom that is recognized as such by Cowering’s GoodMSX. According to the readme, this is a bad dump. So you’re supposed to use another version, but who knows which one.

Good translation, ends up mediocreReviewed By: Gamerhenky on 02 May 2017
I just beaten the original Japanese MSX version of Metal Gear with the most recent English Patch by Nekura_Hoka, let’s take a look at this. First, the translation is… well okay, there is no grammatical error in there. Second, the original font changed bold to thin is the most disappointing for me (still hurt on my eyes), probably need for some squishy stuff. Third, after the end credits when you beat the game, there is no Big Boss’s last message to Solid Snake or the game suddenly crashes just had nothing to do with vanilla version did?. This translation are mediocre and not recommended for me. Best point to play Metal Gear MSX version is the good official English translation alongside with Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence.
Version 1.9 Recommended - No
