Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance

Into Liquid Sky
4 June 2004
  • Excerpt: When Metal Gear Solid 2 came out on the Playstation 2 last year, it was widely accepted as a finely crafted sequel to the popular Playstation title. Now, a year later, Konami has released this game on the Xbox, but with a lot of extras to make the wait worthwhile. The story starts out as Snake and Otacon, working freelance, investigate the development of Metal Gear Ray, the Marines' answer to all of the Metal Gears now present in the world.
  • Pros: Highly detailed world, Loads of extras, including missions with Solid Snake, Polished gameplay
  • Cons: Story gets too convoluted, Minor slowdown, Too many Codec sequences

  • Excerpt: If you are or aren't a metal gear fan from the begining. It doesn't really matter you'll love the first if you get in to the story. Substance will make more sense if you beat "sons of liberty". "substance" includes VR missions which rival the game in their selves.

Game Over Online
3 February 2003
  • Excerpt: If there was a title that was deserving of Hollywood treatment and has yet to win a chance at the silver screen, Metal Gear's Solid Snake would fit the bill perfectly. It would also be a natural transition. Cinematic is one of the words that should come to mind when playing Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance. Not only is the soundtrack penned by someone of the film industry, Harry Gregson-Williams, its direction and even gameplay is heavily influenced by cinema.

  • Conclusion: As good as Splinter Cell, but still very different. There is more freedom and more innovation in this title, which is why every Xbox owner should pick this up even if they have the former title.
