Summary: I love the MG and MGS franchise. When I heard Rising was coming out I was mixed that it was going to follow Raiden. Then when I learned it was going to be a hack n slash, I had more mixed feelings. I love hack n slash games, but putting that in my MGS felt weird. Too much of a departure of the traditional gameplay. I get it's a new franchise that is trying to stand alone, but you'll always get compared to your parent franchise sadly.
You might want to get the PS3 version, if you can.

Summary: I love the originals. This is a serious I have spent possibly too much money on over the years. Between getting the original release, then the re-releases, I've put hundreds of hours into MGS2/MGS3. At first look this collection is obviously missing one major component, MGS1. Push that aside and focus on the collection as it is, and all seems fantastic. Graphically the games have never looked better.
Excerpt: As a follow up from the hit 1998 stealth action Playstation game 'Metal Gear Solid', Metal Gear Solid HD Collection offers a very thrilling game-play experience. The first major advantage of this game is that it comes with 6 different full games, even though it only just shows three, the three games it shows are 'Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty', 'Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater' and 'Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker' (which is not clearly stated, but comes after...
Pros: Features 3 main games, 1 in game level, and 2 classic mini games
Excerpt: Rather good so far, Can be difficult to find a Co-Op partner and as expected from Hideo Kojima, The games can be very cut-scene heavy. Also do not expect to get MGS1 in this, It comes with MGS2, MGS3 and MGS-Peace Walker, A ported PSP game.
Excerpt: This game is a must have for Metal Gear Solid fans its basically a remake. Though i do feel like they added in some parts that i have never seen before. All three games in these 2 discs are amazing games. In each game you get to sneak around completing snakes missions or raidens mission in metal gear solid 2. Anyway this game is definitely worth picking up for how much content you get from it.
Pros: Great game, Feels orignial, Adds onto metal gear solid story for people who didnt have a psp
Cons: Nothing really HD about it, Not alot of people have it and play online
