Product Details:

From the critically acclaimed director, Hideo Kojima, Metal Gear Solid HD Collection offers a handful of the most popular Metal Gear Solid titles from the past in true HD for the first time ever. Featuring three complete games, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, the HD Collection offers old and new fans a chance to experience the epic game play, design and storytelling of the MGS franchise. The "Metal Gear Solid (MGS)" series is the seminal work of Hideo Kojima, Japan's master game creator, and the progenitor of the stealth action game genre. The series has become a global phenomenon, with over 27 million copies sold worldwide. The player controls a secret agent from an elite special forces unit who is sent on solo sneaking missions through enemy installations, vast jungles, and sometimes even the thick of battle. Alone and surrounded by the enemy, even a special forces agent will find it tough to come out alive. But that is the secret behind the series' popularity - the cerebral challenge of figuring out how to avoid combat, and the thrill of sneaking through enemy territory undetected. The MGS series is also known for its storyline, which blends seamlessly with the gameplay. The scenarios are based on extensive research and incorporate the drama of actual developments in society. These elements have made MGS what it is today: a mature work of entertainment that transcends national borders and the confines of video games, and one of the leading products of the Japanese content business.

MGS2 Summary:
After the Shadow Moses incident, technological data on the nuclear-armed walking tank Metal Gear leaks onto the black market. Solid Snake and his allies form the anti-Metal Gear NGO "Philanthropy" and set out in pursuit of a tanker carrying a new Metal Gear prototype. But Snake falls into a trap set by former FOXHOUND member Ocelot, and is believed lost along with the tanker at the bottom of the Hudson River. Two years later, the Big Shell, an oil spill cleanup facility constructed on the bay, is taken over by terrorists led by a man claiming to be the long-lost Solid Snake. The government sends Raiden, a new recruit in the new FOXHOUND, to infiltrate the Big Shell and rescue the US President, who is held hostage inside... The underlying theme of this second entry in the series is "memes," or cultural genes.

MGS3 Summary:
The story shifts back in time to 1964, the height of the Cold War. Naked Snake - the man who would later become the legendary mercenary known as Big Boss - heads into Soviet territory to help the scientist Sokolov defect to the West. But the mission ends in failure due to the betrayal of Snake's mentor and mission advisor The Boss, a female soldier known as "the Mother of Special Forces." The Boss defects to the Soviet Union, taking a miniature nuclear warhead with her as a gift, which her new hosts promptly launch at a Russian research facility. Naked Snake heads once more into the Soviet Union on a mission to kill The Boss... The third MGS game tells the story of men and women who struggle to remain loyal even while their fates are at the mercy of the ever changing political "scene."

MGS PW Summary:
Stories tell of a legendary solider who once waged war against the world. His name was Naked Snake, a.k.a. Big Boss, and the truth behind this legend will finally be told. The era is the 1970's . Big Boss had stationed his soldiers in Colombia, South America, where he was approached by visitors from Costa Rica, a "nation without a military." In the shadow of the Cuban Missile Crisis, as Latin America became a key to maintaining the power balance between East and West, Costa Rica had miraculously managed to maintain its peace and neutrality. However, in various regions of the country, a mysterious armed force seemed to be engaging in suspicious activities. Now, to preserve peace in this nation without a military, the soldiers move into action. In time, they would be known as the founders of "Outer Heaven."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I give up It seems I made another error in my lengthy review of MGS2. The final score was a 9/10. By the way, do not buy the HD collection. Buy the Legacy Collection, as it has MGS1 and 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oops I made a mistake. My previous, elongated review give MGS: PW a 5/10. That was supposed to be a 6/10. Additionally, I wanted people to go watch the videos of SuperBunny Hop and Matthewmatosis on Youtube, as they can give a much better critique than me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best games ever made Metal Gear Solid is easily one of the best series of all time. It always releases with great graphics for its time, and always has something to offer. MGS2 is easily the weakest game of the 4 main games, containing a convoluted storyline that is full of philosophical garbage. Yet, MGS2 also has some of the greatest writing at the same time, with a message that makes more sense now then it did in 2001. MGS2 tried this unique storyline and many argue that is supposed to make the player pensive. True, yet it doesn't always do it correctly. Other games have better open endings then this, and ,while unfair to compare to such a modern game, Spec Ops: The Line is the perfect example, answering many questions and still leaving the player in deep thought. MGS3 had so much pressure on it. MGS2 was a mild disappointment, and the series had to bounce back. What was released is easily one of the best games ever made. Remaking a good looking game that plays at 60fps with a third-person camera (unlike the original), complemented with a great, self-contained story with satisfying a evocative message makes MGS3: HD a most buy. The stealth is great, especially with the amazing environments and camo system. Players may draw their own opinions on the camo system between an innovative piece of gameplay or another menu to monitor. Combat is similar to MGS2: clunky controls, terrible third-person aiming, yet precise first-person shooting. The shooting mechanics take time to get use too, but actual complement the game well in normal scenarios, however there are 2 boss fights were the controls become a major problem. MGS3 contains 2 of the best and some of the worst of the series. This is much of an in-depth review, but some of the bosses lack background unlike MGS1. However, some are extremely developed and the well-written dialogue complements them nicely. Overall, MGS3 is one of the greatest games ever made, and the HD collection is worth the $30 asking price simply by including MGS3 HD (which contains the 2 Metal Gears for the MSX, a nice treat). Next on the review is MGS: Peace Walker, or as I will abbreviate, PW. This game is about what you can ask from a PSP port. It looks egregious and in no way good, yet the shooting and stealth is solid but nothing to brag about, seeming just a streamlined version of MGS4 and MGS3 to a lesser extent. The game is split up in 5-20 minute missions. This has some advantages, mostly the ability to manage Outer Heavan (the base Snake is building) between missions. Sadly, this breaks possibly an engaging experience. The management of MSF (Outer Heaven) is nothing to brag about either. There is little thought on what to do, and little customization possible. Arguably the biggest problem with PW is the lack of a decent storyline. MGS2 and MGS3 had good and amazing plots, respectively. PW's is terrible, with little emotion involved, being poorly written, and relating to MGS3 at times in a poor manner at times as if it is trying to butcher MGS3's storyline. A major problem as well is that, after several hours, PW just gets boring. In conclusion, each game shares some common traits: at least decent stealth and fantastic voice-acting (with the exception of PW at times). Play the games in order of release (MGS2, MGS3, MGS:PW). The ratings for each game is MGS2 HD: 8/10 MGS3 HD: 10/10 MGS:PW 5/10

Rated 5 out of 5 by from METAL GEAR SOLID Has done it again!!! I've been a huge Metal Gear Solid fan for as long as i can remember. Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater HD Edition is an OK game. the sneaking mission game is still the same, but another level, obviously. It all started back in the early '60's where Naked Snake is infiltrating the virgin cliffs at Tselinoyarsk where sokolov is supposedly being held. He successfully rescued sokolov from GRU operatives. Whle he was crossing the bridge with sokolov, Snake's mentor named The Boss showed up at the right place in the wrong time.Not only that, however, sokolov's been picked up unexpectedly by The Fear, one of the Cobra Units. And then "HE" came along. When i said "he", i meant Colonel Volgin of GRU. Right after that, snake got his butt kick by The boss herself and was thrown off the bridge and was carried away at the river stream. And after all that, the virtuous mission was a TOTAL failure!! after a few days later, Naked Snake was in russia again, only THIS time, it was "Operation Snake Eater." THAT mission was to beat the cobra unit, destroy Shagohod, demolish Colonel volgin of the GRU, and of course, finish off The Boss via The Joy, which it wasn't easy for me to do until now. So, metal gear Solid 3 was fine, but nothing, and i mean, NOTHING, is greater than Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty HD Edition. Except Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty HD Edition is the most classic, powerful yet totally the greatest action / shooting game ever like Metal Gear Solid 1! THAT game started when solid snake infiltrated the marine battleship where the new metal gear was been stored in Hold No.3. After solid snake got in the ship on the rainy night, russian troopers showed up and started raiding the marine battleship and took out 3 marines. After snake infiltrated even further to the holds and took pictures of Metal gear RAY, Former FOXHOUND Revolver Ocelot just appeared even right after the marine commander dolph's speech. the russian troopers SUPPOSED to steal Metal gear RAY and bring back russia, but Ocelot has some other plans. At least, that's the idea. When the Former FOXHOUND member Revolver Ocelot said "i'm taking it back," he meant, bringing it back to the patriots, he immediately eliminated colonel sergei gurlukovich and marine commander dolph and took RAY. most of it all, he sank the tanker. Two years later, after the tanker incident, the big shell, the offshore contamination tower was built on the same spot the ship sunk two years ago. That's where the so-called newly reinstated FOXHOUND member Raiden takes place to infiltrate the big shell, according to the simulation by the patriots...maybe. During his infiltration of the big shell, he saw two members of dead cell, Vamp and Fortune, took the black case via "the football" and the president. So, that game was awesome! unlike Metal Gear solid: Peace Walker HD Edition. Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition is an all right game, but those boss battles are VERY difficult to beat when you're playing that boss mode alone. sooner or later, you'll be running outta bullets. I don't know the rest of the story because because i RARELY played it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Near Ultiamate MGS eXperience After completing MGS1 for the first time I decided to continue the MGS experience with the MGS HD Collection. I found this near complete collection to be AMAZING.The MGS HD Collection comes with nearly all the games you need to enjoy what MGS has to offer. This collection includes the original MSX games Metal Gear and Metal Gear 3: Solid Snake, and includes MGS 2 Substance with VR Missions, MGS 3 Subsistence, and MGS Peace Walker. Although it does miss MGS 1 and MGS 4 in the near perfect collection. Story: The story for all of these games is written and directed by MGS creator Hideo Kojima. Metal Gear's story is not as exciting as the other ones but it is very important to the series. Metal Gear 2 contains MGS great story writing with plot twists and interesting scenarios. MGS 2 contains most of the brilliant story writing and will not let you down, but you should play MGS 1 to understand the characters more. MGS 3 shows us the gripping story of what started all of Metal Gear's conflicts. MGS Peace Walker does have good story writing and can get somewhat emotional sometimes and shows what happens 10 years after MGS 3. Graphics: The MSX Graphics look like the same graphics that were used when they were released. MGS 2 has very good graphics when it comes to the look of the main characters and weapons, but the graphics of some of the guards or minor characters they look un-realistic and their eyes don't blink or mouths don't move unlike the main characters. MGS 3 has slightly better graphics than MGS 2 and lacks the minor character's un-realistic moves I mentioned earlier. MGS Peace Walker was released for the PSP and has worse graphics than MGS 3 like Snake's face looks a bit like PS1 graphics mixed with PS2 but it's because of the PSP's hardware and that was the best graphics they could come up with. Gameplay: All of these games involve stealth and they give you ways to maneuver around guards, but you need to be careful. MG and MG 2 are easy to play but they don't have people telling you "X is for crouch" or "O is to punch" but there is a couple of screens where there are no guards and you could practice and get used to the controls. MGS 2 has very easy gameplay and has people telling you what button does what. MGS 3 has good gameplay, but the CQC moves was a little bit challenging. MGS Peace Walker has better CQC, but lacks some moves like crawling. However, at the beginning of the game there is a tutorial that will help you. Lasting Appeal: The MGS HD Collection contains almost all of the original extras, but misses some of the fan favorites. However, VR Missions, Extra Ops, Secrets, and trophies will keep you going. Overall: The MGS HD Collection definitely delivers in almost every way, but there are some flaws that keep it from being flawless. The HD edition is the best way to experience MGS if you own MGS 1 and 4 already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing The Metal Gear Series is just fantastic in itself but i really like how this game takes things and you can see what it took Big Boss to make his Outter Heaven. Fantastic game and of course story line!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaying Some of the Best Games...... in HD The games in the HD Collection have gotten some slightly noticeable touch-ups, with the exception of Peace Walker which looks better than ever. However, did I buy this just for the HD? No. I bought this so I can enjoy some of the best titles in video gaming history all over again. Play as Solid Snake, Raiden, and Naked Snake/Big Boss as you replay some of the best games of your childhood. If your new to the series, pick this up, it's a great way to get started, especially with MGS 3 in the set. Included with MGS2, MGS3, and Peace Walker is Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, which take place before MGS1 and are accessible from the MGS3 menu. This collection pretty much covers up the whole main MGS series with the exceptions of 1 and 4, which can also be bought for a cheap price. And as you remember, each MGS game is loaded with cutscenes and codec moments, but don't worry, the game has great voice acting. Controls are the same as they were on the PS2 minus Peace Walker for obvious reasons. Gameplay is just how you remember: stealthy and action. The multiplayer in Peace Walker is addicting with the massive amount of weapons, missions, and modes. Your missing out on a lot if you haven't picked this up yet. You get all this for $40, it is more than worth it.
