Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

One of the most anticipated titles in gaming history absolutely lives up to the hype. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty is the follow-up to one of the most captivating and intelligent adventures on the PSone; Solid Snake, everyone's favourite mullet-sporting super-soldier, is back along with many other familiar faces and voices. While Metal Gear Solid was lauded for telling a complex story, this sequel has even more fascinating twists and turns; also, like its predecessor, MGS2 takes console-game storytelling to an entirely new level with stunning in-game movies, great graphics, and game mechanics that let you find your own solutions to its challenges. The game's twisting and at times bizarre plot will undoubtedly keep some gamers perplexed.

Konami has replaced the moronic enemies from the first MGS with more cerebral and capable foes; this causes an even greater emphasis on stealth than the original. The controls have been refined and Snake's repertoire of moves has grown, both of which deepen the gameplay. This is, technically and stylistically, one of the best-looking PS2 games on the market. Sound is also top notch, with a fabulous score and outstanding voice acting. What really makes this game such a stand-out is how all of these sight, sound, and story elements combine to immerse the player into an entertainment form between movie and game. It will be years before Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty is surpassed. This is interactive entertainment at its finest. --Raymond M Padilla

This is probably the best game I have ever played. If you are already an MGS fan you will be blown away , but even if you can't tell your Solid Snakes from your Revolver Ocelots, you will find the game easy to pick up and play, yet engaging, downright fun and containing hours of gameplay. Be prepared to be up till 2 o'clock in the morning, playing with bated breath, as yet another plot twist or new challenge keeps your eyes glued to the screen and your hands stuck to you dualshock2. I mean, come on, what can be more fun than shooting down a Harrier Jump Jet with a rocket launcher? MGS veterans will be delighted with the brill new controls, weapons and fantastic gameplay, rookies will be blown away with the sublime plot, unbeatable graphics and the fun to be had with tactical espionage action at it's best. So quit reading this review and buy you fools!

If you liked the first game, buy this right after you've read this review or better yet... why wait??? If you just like games which involve action, stealth, and a Hollywood style plot go for this.
The level of realism in this is phenomenal, if you take some time to look at the DVD Video that comes with MGS2 you'll find out exactly why the this game is so militarily accurate when, for example, if you're trying to hide from the enemy in a locker while they're searching the room you're in they'll be perfectly coordinated, the closer they get, the more your heart begins to fill out the silence and the Dual Shock vibrates.
Then there are the small touches, such as, have you ever noticed in Bond films that when James is in a gunfight, he always holds his gun UP? It's also explained that this is militarily incorrect, therefore if you push yourself against a wall, a manoever which will be perfectly familiar to those who've played the first game, you'll notice that both Snake and Raiden hold their guns down. Then try doing the same thing on the first game; do you see the difference???
The big snag for hardcore Solid Snake fans is that he is not playable throughout the majority of the game. Instead, you'll have to control Raiden. When you take a look at the quality of the game overall, you should be able to look past this with ease.
This game was made to be much like a Hollywood action film, with it's enormous usage of FMV and Codec scenes designed to progress through the story. Therefore, the first time you play this you will have to be prepared to sit through a lot of dialogue between the different characters.
But, all in all, if you appreciate a decent game, buy this and you won't regret it.

MGS2 is well an interactive movie. Hideo Kojima hyas created a masterpiece that is incredibaly interactive but in some areas linear. The weapons in this game far surpass the original as does the story which is far far better than 90% of Hollywood blockbusters these days. The game has fantastic ideas which all work perfectly e.g. the guards clearences when they know you are in the area is done with incredible realism as they use sign language to indicate your presence. The main aspect of this game is its plot which is so amazing you'll think every word of it is true.
Though its too short and slightly lacks replay value "the dogtag system works well" if you are going to play it for the first time PLAY IT ON THE NORMAL DIFFICULTY SETTING or you will ruin the game. Though flawed it is a game every dedicated games fan must complete once.

This game shows how close we are to a film like experience although it would of have helped if it had a perfect story and cast like the first game did. Please do yourself a favour and get the PS1 game or get a gamecube and play it with current generation graphics.
The game isnt a complete master piece this time because it doesnt have a completely believable solid(lol)story like the first MGS. The memorable sections are cool but there happens to be two completely rubbish characters that were included to mirror the previous MGS memorable ones. But the games interactivity and epicness direction kind of makes up for them.
And also for most of the game you play as Raiden who sounds insecure and can be a bit ditsy. I dont like him really as hes the opposite of snakes defensive macho character. They are both an underdogs though, and are willing to do whats neccessary to complete their mission. And thats what keeps you going through the game looking forward to the next challenge.
If you watch the DVDs that come with the game you will see that its a cash in and rehash of the previous games greatness. And the pressure of the games release date made Hideo mess around with ideas and created characters from them, rather than having a well told interesting story first to go by. But he still manages to have a moral to the story though. Got give the him credit.
I compare this game to Metallica's new album. With its great original sound and direction, but ultimatley a mixed bag of ideas just thrown together. But you want to listen to it because it has the passion still that sets it apart from lesser bands.

Firstly, it is an absolutely brilliant game, but there are another 50+ ***** reviews, so nuff said. I just want to mention a few things. Firstly, yes the game is short, but play it for the first time on hard and WITHOUT a strategy guide and it'll take a while. I thinkthe concept of a snake controlled intro and then the majority of the game playing as raiden on one level totally original and it worked very well. I will slag the codec, the main problem being you don't want to skip valuable info ( that woman got on my t*ts). Now the main thing, the plot/cut scenes/etc. Regardless of what some say I found them all totally captivating, working very well with the game itself PARTICULARLY towards the end. e.g. after beating the second last boss(es) I didn't feel like going straight back in and found the long cut scene excellent. As for the plot and twists - fine, for a hollywood film it would be a bit excessive, but compared to other games its on a different level and hopefully an indicator for future games. ( Imagine a game with a plot as good as some of the best films) A highly original game and a benchmark for the future. Buy it. (If you haven't played the first, buy that too)
