The Document of Metal Gear Solid 2
Game Over Online

Excerpt: Own a PS2, and chances are you’ll have a copy of Metal Gear Solid: Sons of Liberty as a highlight of your game library. Universally considered by most gamers to be a masterpiece, Konami’s action game set new standards, ones that have yet to be reached or surpassed.
Excerpt: Introduction: The original Metal Gear Solid is definitely a favorite among Playstation owners, and with good reason--It's one of the damn finest action games ever made. It combined a nice, complex storyline, with realistic voice-acting, a futuristic setting, great visuals, and a degree of attention...
Excerpt: The return of Solid Snake? Say it isn’t so! One of the most intriguing games of the Playstation era has now come to the Playstation 2. Full of conspiracy and plot twists, Metal Gear Solid was the continuation of a long running series as a new, more storyline driven action adventure game.
Excerpt: Few developers are as synonymous with greatness as Hideo Kojima. The once outcast developer who was a flop at Konami before making the first Metal Gear game, rose to unprecedented heights once he redefined the action genre by making a game you actually snuck around in rather than blaze through.
Pros: + Kojima makes some of the best games around. Period.
Excerpt: To say Metal Gear 2 is highly anticipated by just about every PlayStation 2 owner would be a massive understatement. Never have I seen one game mentioned with such awe and respect in both the hardcore and casual gaming sects. So is it everything that it was hoped to be?
Excerpt: You sneak up a dark metal floored hallway. Your footsteps echo slightly as you move through out the hallway. You pause, listening to your breath, heartbeat, and a patrolling guard's foot falls. You crouch down, moving swiftly, and peer around a corner.
Conclusion: All in all, I enjoyed playing MGS2, though not nearly as much as I thought I would. Overall the game had balanced out well, but I felt as if it wasn't the game it could have been and not the game that MGS was.
Pros: The graphics and sound were phenomenal, and the plot was interesting;
Cons: Raiden, the play control, and the inconsistency of game level.
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty Second Opinion
1 December 2001
Excerpt: I often wonder when games will be reviewed on TV the way movies are featured on various evening news segments or television magazines such as Access Hollywood. If they were, Kojima's latest would yield mixed feelings.
Excerpt: People compare games and movies. Whether this is fair or not is moot by this point. People do it, and it doesn't look like they're going to stop. The gaming public has decided to view games as an authorative medium in the tradition of cinema.
