  Great games (in their day)

| | See all Mappalazarou's reviews (9)

I bought this recently and was really disappointed. I loved the MGS games growing up but they haven't aged well. I'd say that this package is for the loyal fans of the series only. And as for being a HD collection? The graphics didn't look all that different to the PS2 editions of MGS2/Snake Eater. And Peace Walker was just disappointing (although I had never played the PSP original!)

  Great Game

Just as good as your remember. I don't remember the game taking so long to complete, which is a good thing as it means you get more for your money. If you haven't played the series before, this is a good start!!

  AMAZING!

  The Re-Birth Of Some Classics

| | See all lostboyscarter's reviews (12)

Metal Gear Solid is the sort of game that cannot be compared to anything else and once you buy this game you will find out why. Fantastic collection to play superbly remastered in HD to bring that cutting edge feel to an already fantastic collaberation of classics.

i reccomend this for anyone wanting a challenge.

Just a shame the first Metal Gear Solid wasn't included in it.

  Three Great Games Despite the Endless Cut Scenes

| | See all deanlowdon's reviews (468)

Metal Gear Solid 2 ****
Judged by some as disappointing following Metal Gear Solid on the Playstation Sons of Liberty makes for an intriguing gaming experience despite its faults. The cut scenes may still be too long, the plot pointlessly confusing, Raiden slightly annoying and the oil rig setting certainly lacking in the diversity of the Shadow Moses Facility of the first game but thanks to a number of refinements and additions to the 'tactical espionage system' the gameplay itself is actually, for the most part superior to the original even of it is comparatively lacking in the imagination department.

Metal Gear Solid 3 ****
Slight departure from first two Metal Gear Solid games 'Snake Eater', takes place in a Russian jungle in 1964 before the enemy detecting radar had been invented and this brings a whole new level of tension to the gameplay as you can no longer be certain of exactly where the enemies are.

The jungle itself also provides for a far more interesting setting than the oil rig from the series previous entry. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing but it also has a real impact upon gameplay with your level of camouflage vital to remaining hidden. The games hand-to-hand fighting mechanics have also seen an overhaul with the introduction of the CQC system. This allows Snake to pull off a more complex set of combat moves and even tackle more than one enemy at once. On the negative side there is still the odd camera issue to be found but the biggest problem, as with previous Metal Gear games, continues to be the quite frankly ludicrously long cut scenes (Some must exceed the half-hour mark!).

Peace Walker ****
Originally a PSP title this spin-off breaks the gameplay down into shorter missions. The series trademark stealth gameplay is still in evidence but many missions can now be played in co-op adding a new layer of tactics to proceedings. Between missions captured enemy soldiers can be used to help manage your home base in order to keep morale high and develop new weapons and technology. This adds a further level of depth to an already deep and enjoyable game. Cut scenes, although not exactly short, are also nowhere near the length of previous entries thanks to its background as a portable game.

  Memory blurs reality

| | See all junxt99's reviews (1)

Remember loving the back on the playstation. Over the years nostalgia seems to have got the better of me and I bought this again. Unfortunatly in the years between the ps and xbox games I have erased the almost constant cut-scenes. Less a game more of a barely interactive movie. towards the end I started skipping the cut-scenes but even then spent more time skipping cut scenes than actually playing game. A shame, as I dont remember it as bad as this. It gets 3 stars as the few bits I was involved in were as good as I remembered.

  Fantastic Collection - Well worth the price!

| | See all Trickay's reviews (1)

These cinematic games deserved to be HD and look fantastic on a big telly (I remember being little and playing them all on a 14" blurry CRT portable TV - playing them on my nice big TV now is just amazing).
Snake eater (MGS3) looks so good, and we can finally throw more than one smoke grenade without the game slowing down (my PS2 always crawled when I used smoke grenades)

Word of warning though: Given Peace Walker's control 'perfection' (with dual anologue sticks) I would advise playing the games MGS2 - MGS3 - PW as not to get frustrated by the control scheme which progressively improves from MGS2 to PW ;)

  Its on xbox finally! (dont be tricked there is no MGS4)

Awsome graphics different view system classic games. Dont be tricked though MGS 4 is not included in this package its peace walker back when it was on psp. Shame guns of patriots isnt in this collection.
