"I am lightning, the rain transformed."
3 weeks ago
Summary: Raiden, we had fun in MGS 2 but we didn't get to utilize your incredible cyborg transformation...until now. Now for newcomers, this is purely an incredibly fun action game, as for us fans of MGS its a little something to hold us over till Ground Zeroes comes out. Which can be a bit disappointing if you're craving that MGS gameplay, but storywise? Absolutely.
Summary: The codex seems weird on this game for some reason, more like useless info rather than helpful hints and tips. Also the stealth in this game doesn't work extremely well such as boxes and barrels to hide in. Other than that, I loved the action, the graphics are alright, I'm not crazy about a game that uses same graphics for gameplay and cinematic parts, but this was alright, at least you can skip them if you want.
Summary: Raiden has returned as the rough and ready to rumble cyborg samurai in this adventure. The combat is so fluid in this game, and the sneaking works pretty well (but why would you want to sneak with all this at your disposal). Being able to tear apart an unwary enemy with a flick of your joystick just feels so good and the customization, although limited, makes for a better experience. Play through this adventure and just be in awe of Raiden.
Summary: Three awesome games at an absolutely phenomenal value. MGS3, the centerpiece and strongest title of the collection, has been tweaked and polished to near perfection. Improved textures, on-the-fly adjustable camera settings, and excellent additional content from the Subsistence re-release make it an exceptional title to revisit for PS2 veterans.
Summary: Had a good time. Kind of corny and Raiden has long nails and wears high heels (seriously), which really makes me wonder about the design team's sense of humor. I wasn't too engaged with the people you can talk to on your codec/radio, but it was a nice spectacle and very high quality production values, even if the story made me roll my eyes from time to time. Hope to see a sequel.
Summary: its very hard....has a steep learning curve and you'll want to throw your controller across the room, but its a challenge and it makes everything more satisfying, unlike american games that hold your hand the entire way and you finish the campaign in a day. love the cyborg aesthetics, the trademark kojima long cutscenes, and all the metal gear lore.....and the fighting animations are very smooth and fluid.
Summary: As I have yet to play MGS3, this review will only cover MGS2. I will edit this article once I've beaten MGS3. How is it possible to both love and hate a video game? Hate is a strong word, perhaps, but there were times while re-playing MGS2 that made me furious with frustration... a frustration that would, minutes later, be replaced with the satisfaction of an interesting cut scene, or As I have yet to play MGS3, this review will only cover MGS2.
Fantastic HD collection for some of the best stealth games!

Summary: This is yet another great HD collection by Blue Point. They have done the HD collections for God of War, Zone of Enders, ICO, and Shadow of the Colossus all being successful. If you are interested in playing the Metal Gear Solid series then I highly suggest playing the first game or watching its animated movie then playing this collection.
