    It was very good untill Harry went to Hogwarts, then it got boring as hell. Especially considering its another canon rip off.

    Enjoying this, the omakes a pretty funny.

    Hoping this doesn't turn into the average "Muggle Soldier!Harry" fic where every other paragraph is about guns or equipment, but it seems unlikely at this point.

    The cardboard box omakes kill me. <3

    4/5

    The title, in my current state, is incrediblly amusing, However in a sober frame of mind I have no doubt that I would be disinclined to read this. the positive reviews however have left me thinking I should not judge this story by the title.

    Thats the reason he's glazing over it. From the sound of it the major changes are coming in later when he starts to get trained by his Uncle 'Greatest Soldier in the World'.

    Yeah. Big Boss is FAR too intersted in the Magical World to have Harry just disreguard it. He'd probelly kick his ass if he did.

    Its a pun off of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

    It's all right. I don't know enough about MGS to make a determination. I'll have to keep checking back here.

    The title is so unattractive to me you have no idea. Coupled with the fact that I hate MGS, and I don't think Ill bother reading it.

    the title isnt the most imaginative one but I would encourage at least a once over.

    It is actually quite well written, enough that most people here did not note on his the author's fondness for the Weasleys. Quite an enjoyable read, even though it does follow canon, for now. Sometimes simplicity is best :)

    This fic, depspite the punny tittle, deserves 5/5 for simply existing. Moving past fanboyism, it is actualy well writen. It's nice that while it makes refrences to cannon events, for the most part, it focuses mainly on the interaction between Big Boss and Harry, and not a proverbial 'OMG THE MAN'S AT HOGWARTZ LOL style fic.

    Also, seeing Harry steal Duddly's cookies using a cardboard box is one of the greatest gimicks I've seen in fanfiction in a long time.
    Ratting: 5/5

    Well written and fairly interesting. Big Boss character is pretty cool too. On the other hand, the whole Weasley fascination is a bit of a downer for me, but other then that, pretty enjoyable little story.
    3.8/5

    I lost interest the second it decided to follow canon.

    Funny... you say that as its starting to break off from canon. It's going to follow canon up to the end of the second book, until it becomes blatently clear that Harry is in danger at school and he will require training to survive.

    Not everything would change in first year you know...
