Summary: (Update) Alright a patch was FINALLY released for the PS3 version of this game. There's just one problem, the first game still runs very clunky. The Second game in the collection now finally runs as good as the original on the PS2 did (or at the very least close enough that you won't really care.
Awesome game, but Limited Edition not worth an extra $20

Summary: LIMITED EDITION: I was expecting a lot more out of this Limited Edition. The Artbook is something only a little bit better quality than the Metal Gear Solid 4 artbook I got for free from reserving MGS4 from Gamestop so many years ago (Same quality you'd find in a $15 strategy guide, a lot less pages...
Summary: I was excited for this and when I got it not so much. The transfer or HD remake was done poorly by a third party studio, Konami let this fly which is unacceptable. The PS3 version has some low frame rate, while it does play better than the PS2 version why they couldn't get this working is beyond me.
Summary: I just wanted to note to anyone buying this for the soundtrack: it's eight songs that are all remixed. If you like dubstep, then you'll like the remixed soundtrack. I was hoping the remixes were just going to be slight edits, but some of these songs...
Summary: Having played through ZOE one, and currently playing ZOE 2 I am very surprised to find that this game slows down quite a bit during intense fighting sessions. It is apparent that High Voltage games did not capitalize on the opportunity to give themselves a good name by giving us a good HD transfer.
Add three stars to my score if this ever gets patched (UPDATE: Read note at bottom)

Summary: Make no mistake, I love the Zone of the Enders games. Next to Virtual On and the newer Armored Cores, they are some of the most fast, fluid and intense mecha games ever created, with the added bonus of a compelling sci-fi narrative masterfully crafted by Hideo Kojima.
Summary: As a re-release, this game is really only best for those who have played it before. I've played games for about 25 years, and I understand the effect of nostalgia. The story is extremely cliched.
Summary: This review is, as you can see very long. If you can't be arsed to read the whole thing I've split up certain sections, so look for standalone titles like the one below this phrase "The story" if you want to read about specific details The Story (No spoilers) These humanoid like machines you take on...
Summary: Fantastic games especially ZOE2 but the performance issues take away from the fast combat that this game does so well. Even the VR training missions have terrible slowdown which is unacceptable given that konamis site states that the collection is in 60FPS!
