  • Excerpt: For those who don't know, Metal Gear Solid 2 is the sequel of the critically acclaimed PS game in which you play as stealth agent Solid Snake, who must sneak into an Alaskan base to stop terrorists from using the secret Metal Gear Rex. Without going into too many events (because I don't want to ruin any of the excellent plot for this game), the sequel starts up a few years later when Solid Snake, now a freelance with the anti-Metal Gear "Philanthropy", arrives on a...
  • Pros: Awesome attention to detail, Top-notch voice acting and sound effects, Enemy AI is well done, Great story

  • Excerpt: For those of you who have already played MGS2: Sons of Liberty for the PS2, then youre pretty much familiar with MGS2: Substance for the XBox. For those not familiar, this is an action/stealth game which plays out over two chapters. The first is the very short tanker chapter in which you assume the role of Solid Snake, the hero of past Metal Gear games, and currently a member of the activist group Philanthropy.

  • Excerpt: Apparently, you guys couldn’t get enough of Raiden and Snake’s adventures in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty . So much so that more than a year after the European release of the game, Konami have decided to bring Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance to the Snake-loving public. What you’ll find here is not a review of MGS2 , since the game itself has been analysed, reviewed, previewed and generally picked to pieces so much that there isn’t much left to be said.

  • Excerpt: Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty was possibly one of the most hyped games ever released, even surpassing the anticipation surrounding the first Metal Gear Solid. Gamers were yearning to have another great time playing as Snake, the rugged hero of the Metal Gear series. There was a problem though. You only get to play as Soild Snake for about 1/8 of the game.

  • Excerpt: Metal Gear Solid 2 was one of the biggest releases in 2001. While Konami hasn’t officially announced MGS3 yet, everyone is expecting it to be officially unveiled at E3 2003. In the meantime, Konami has tried to cash in on the popularity of Metal Gear Solid 2. After releasing the Document of Metal Gear Solid--an inside look at the making of the title, Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance arrives on the scene.

18 April 2003
  • Excerpt: Metal Gear Solid is one of the best in strategy/shooters around today. Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance has Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and 500+ bonus missions added after it. You control an array of characters with a unique storyline that is almost too complicated to explain. Solid Snake, one of the characters, has his hands full in the beginning and is supposed to have died during a mission but you find him later on in the game with another character as an ally.
