Excerpt: With the huge success of Metal Gear Solid 1 and the intriguing storyline, a sequel was inevitable. MGS Substance is a re-release of MGS: Sons Of Liberty but with bonus features such as Snake Tales, 350 VR missions and 150 alternative missions. That's a lot of extra missions and some consider this the definitive MGS2.
Summary: Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance for the Xbox console was, in fact, the very first Metal Gear game I'd ever bought a few years ago, along with a few others on a Saturday in a bargain bin in a certain games shop. I'd never really been into the game series before, and it's probably safe to say, as any long-term Metal Gear fan will testify, that owing to the complicated story it is the worst game of the series to start on. But anyway, on with my main gripe.
Excerpt: This review is about Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance, I will be giving information about all the new features in this game, and what new stuff you can get. The aim of this game is to stop the Big Shell from blowing up, that’s if you are doing Raiden's (one of the main characters) story, and if you are doing Snake's (another main character) story, then you have to stop the Metal Gear from going under control by Ocelot (this bad western person, who’s really Liquid Snake,...
Summary: After owning Metal Gear Solid for the PS1, I drooled over the next installment when I found it. Great, I thought, the game I loved with better graphics, AI, features, and options. Was I right? Oh yes. Forget work. You'll bother to call in sick the first couple of days, then you'll forget as the days blur into one. Each time you get to a cut scene you think "I'll just do this" or "I'll just find that guy" as the plot thickens, and sleep will be a long forgotton memory.
Excerpt: Introduction: The purpose of this review is to discuss the game Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance (MGS2). MGS2 was originally released as Sons of Liberty which is the story part of this game. Why release Substance then? Well this is supoosed to be the true version of MGS2. It contains features not included in the original game. For example Snake Tales and hundreds of VR missions (350) and alternative missions (150) and Skateboarding?!!!
Summary: First Thing's First this game is not as good as the original Metal Gear Solid,but it is much better than the original Metal Gear Solid 2 Because it Has LOTS of VR missions (Youll recognize them from the first game)and plenty of different characters to play as (in training) like Solid Snake in a Tux and Snake in his old MGS1 Costume also there is a chance to use a sword in the game too (very nasty).
Summary: Im sorry but ive never liked splinter cell the enemy characters look like fat blocky rectangles and Tom Clancys scenarios are like the sad old goverment conspiracy films my dad watches. Metal Gear is a great great game the control system is perfect. I know people dont like the replacement of snake in the main chapter with raiden but lets face it this is snakes fourth computer game and he must be in his mid thirtys by now it wouldn't be plausible for him to be still...
Summary: I wouldn't have considered buying Sons of Liberty but now Substance has been released I bought it, mostly for the main game which is amazing. But the thing that clinches it are the hundreds of VR missions with Snake, Raiden, Ninja Raiden, Tuxedo Snake and MGS1 Snake. Plus some Snake Tales where the story gets really weird in some parts, but still good.
Summary: Ok, so you've probably read loads of other reviews saying "yeah good game but nothing special." This attitude seems to focus on the visuals and constant FMV 'interruptions'. Let's put a few things straight - the graphics are taken straight from PS2, given that and the age of the game (one of the first showcased for PS2) it is pretty damn impressive. Lip sync could be better but facial movements and expressions along with hair and clothing are a pleasure to look at.
