METAL GEAR SOLID – PEACE WALKER is an action adventure game viewed in third person released on Sony’s handheld PSP console. Players take on the role of a special agent known as Solid Snake, with the game challenging them to sneak up behind enemies and subdue them as much as it requires becoming involved in gun play. METAL GEAR SOLID – PEACE WALKER was passed ‘15’ for strong violence.

The BBFC Guidelines at ‘15’ state that ‘violence may be strong but should not dwell on the infliction of pain or injury’. In METAL GEAR SOLID – PEACE WALKER there is one scene in which Solid Snake is interrogated and tortured with electric batons. To resist the pain and survive players are required to rapidly tap one of the console buttons. Whilst it is true the scene offers a reasonably prolonged focus on the infliction of pain, it is also depicted in a simple comic book drawing style that provides no detail. This means the scene does not dwell on the infliction of pain and injury in a manner that requires adult classification. Given the interactive nature of games, the fact the player was not responsible for inflicting pain was also a moderating factor.

METAL GEAR SOLID – PEACE WALKER also contains a dating game in which the characters meet on a beach and chat each other up before disappearing into a box that bobs up and down a bit with a love heart symbol emerging above it. With the BBFC Guidelines at ‘15’ stating that ‘sexual activity may be portrayed without strong detail’ this is also permitted at the category. Additionally the game contains some mild language and scenes showing cigarette smoking that are neither promotional nor of particular appeal to children.
