Summary: I don't know what more to say. Okay, maybe I do: This game is horrible. HOWEVER - you don't realize how horrible it is until you finish it. Then you look back and realize that all the muck you just sat/played through wasn't worth the egregiously ambiguous ending. Now, about "Raiden.
Summary: Do you remember that Jerry Bruckheimer film from a few years back that had a hero constantly bickering with his girlfriend, fighting ,at one point nude, a transexual vampire and a fat demolitions expert on roller skates,finally ended with a sword fight over New York, was overly hyped and made...
Summary: I apologize for the length of this review. I want to make sure everyone who purchases this game knows what they are in for ahead of time. Skip to the end for an abbreviated opinion of the disappointment that was MGSII. Let me start by saying the this game looks INCREDIBLE.
Summary: Blah! I know I'll end up with a 0/955 helpful ranking, but I just have to comment. I'm sorry, but I don't understand why this game was/is such a hit. Sure, it has great graphics and music (which is why it gets the extra star), but other than that... The storyline is very complex.
Summary: After playing through it once youll be blown away by the huge step between PS1 and PS2 graphics that allows for all of the visual imperfections of the original hit to be put right. But 10 minutes later and after all the pre-release hype youl realise that this games is a huge anti-climax.

Summary: I won't say much. I'll admit to being blown away while playing this game, but the game is far too short, has FAR too much pointless dialogue and cut-scenes and not enough actual playing, it's like a movie that lets you take part in a few small areas.
Excerpt: I too like many others ( thousands no doubt ), waited impatiently for 3 years for the sequel to Metal Gear solid to release its charms onto the earth. Even reading the reviews from Japan who had it for 6 motnhs before europe. Was it worth it ? read on and find out !!!
Summary: OK so I'll probably get lynched for this but I really did not enjoy "playing" MGS2. It's not that I think it's a bad game......yes the graphics are superb and the attention to detail within the playable sections of the game is admirable but if you like your action games to actually contain a decent...
Summary: The game play, what little you get, is very good. However the whole experience is totally ruined by the amount of video footage you get. Not being sure whether its relevant to the game and your mission or just the characters interacting pointlessly with each other, means you tend to watch it all.
