Metal Gear Solid HD Collection
2 September 2013
Summary: Metal Gear Solid is very much a love it/hate it series. Those that become absorbed in its shifting narrative, stealthy gameplay and unapologetically eccentric nature become obsessed, while those who find the series convoluted and confusing will likely never regard it with anything more than...
Excerpt: The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is one title I’ve been looking forward to for a long time. The Blu-ray contains five of the seven main Metal Gear games released so far: Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and Metal Gear...
Excerpt: Until Metal Gear Solid came along, sneaking about was hardly commonplace in gaming. The release of the game back in 1998 was very highly anticipated, and the game proved to be something very different with its sneaky gameplay and detailed storyline.
Excerpt: I was amazed when I had the opportunity to review this title for impulsegamer! Being a long term reviewer and co founder for the site, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty was an early title that I looked after and one of the first games that I unreservedly gave a perfect 12/10.
Conclusion: Metal Gear Solid is not for everyone, and those people who tried to enjoy the series and never could won't find much has changed here. The HD upgrade is exactly that, an upgrade, and doesn't fundamentally change anything about any of the 3 games.
Conclusion: Whiny surprise protagonists notwithstanding, it's impossible to point to one key point of the MGS experience that feels so timeless, but it truly is. These are meaty, deeply satisfying games, and you get three of them for the price of one. Buy it.
Summary: Pretty much any flaw you’ll find with this collection is simply a statement on the era of gaming for which these games took place. The collection promises little else than updated graphics, and in that sense they knocked it out of the park.
