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: 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.. first the basics: Graphics: Nothing jaw dropping in terms of lighting or texture effects. The attention to detail and character animation is excellent though. Its not going to win an beauty contests.. but theres nothing there to make you wince either. The character design is superb, and the game has a style of its own.. think 'Japanese Rambo'. Sound: Again.. good but nothing too special.
Summary: This is just a simple review to tell anyone looking, NOT to buy this game if you fail one of two reasons, you don't own HALO or you don't own SPLINTER CELL. Don't get me wrong, this is an amazing game, thats why i gave it 5 stars, I've got the original on the PS2 and completed it plenty of times and for about half a year was my favourate game of all time, on any console.
Summary: This game rules! I have been waiting for this for about 4 years now, scince the original metal gear on psone came out and I was not disappointed. The main games is split into two chapters, the tanker and the big shell plant, the latter being longer. Without spoiling the story, solid snake and otacon have now set up there own anti-metal gear organization known as philanthropy.
