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...

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.

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.

Conclusion: The new VR missions make up a majority of what’s new in Substance. For those players who tried Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions for the PlayStation, you’ll have a good idea of what to expect here. If not, here’s a quick summary: VR missions challenge you to guide your player through one of an assortment of different challenges, all set in a virtual reality environment.
Excerpt: It was perhaps the most critically acclaimed game of 2001, and arguably one of the best games ever made. With the most breathtaking graphics ever seen on a console, an amazing musical score by Harry Gregson-Williams, and some of the most innovative gameplay in the industry, Metal Gear Solid 2 was nothing short of a masterpiece; and Hideo Kojima, the game's creator/producer, wasn't satisfied with it. It just doesn't make any sense, does it?
