Product Description

Platform: PlayStation 3

Manufacturer's Description

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.

Features:

  • The MGS franchise is one of the most important game series of all time with multi-million unit sales globally, and countless awards honouring the vision of Hideo Kojima, a true video game icon.
  • First time for these groundbreaking MGS titles to be in full High-Definition with revamped graphics, menu systems and much more.
  • Play as a new fan or a veteran within METAL GEAR SOLID universe and experience some of the greatest gaming design, storytelling and presentation of all-time
  • Three full METAL GEAR SOLID games featuring endless hours of gameplay within single-player campaign
  • Online multiplayer modes featured in MGS Peace Walker for even greater replay and value to extend the experience further. Go online in multiplayer modes as well as Co-Op mode.
  • Enjoy smooth, precise controls with right analog stick formatting and Force Feedback
  • See the game like you never have with the frame rate boosted to 60 fps and graphics enhanced to 720p
  • Complete your missions and enjoy a new way to play METAL GEAR SOLID: Peace Walker with the Trophies mode

    5.0 out of 5 stars PS2 and PSP era MGS in glorious HD. 3 Feb. 2012
    Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    This is something I've been waiting a long, long time for. Honestly, the delay for the UK version was like a knife twisting in my gut. The PS2 era was my era for gaming, so the series of 'HD Collections' of PS2 era games for the PS3, updated to be played in HD with higher frame rates, have been a godsend for me.

    In this HD Collection, we get Metal Gear Solid 2, 3 and, for the first time on a 'big' console, MGS Peace Walker - a PSP title updated for the big screen. Some fans have bemoaned the lack of MGS1, the first game in the 'Solid' era that really brought the series to the attention of the Western world, but I consider this a wise decision. Apparently they explored the possibility of including it but found that a PSX era game could not be upconverted to anything vaguely resembling high definition. Rumour has it that Hideo Kojima has designs on bringing a completely remade version of MGS1 to us at a later date, likely coinciding with an anniversary of some kind. This will be far better in my opinion. In the meantime, for those yet to experience it, the original MGS1 title is available to purchase on PSN for a tiny fee, and for those with an old PSX copy of the game knocking around, you can play it on your PS3 (it was only PS2 backwards compatibility that was sacrificed in later PS3 hardware revisions, so all PS3's play PSX games)

    As regards the updated graphics, well they can certainly hold their own now on a modern HD display. I played MGS2 a couple of years ago on my PS2 and it really did suffer on a modern HD display, but now in pure 720p both PS2 games can really hold their heads high. Of course they cannot rival a game such as Uncharted, that was only ever conceived with HD in mind, but for an upconversion job you will be hugely impressed.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Could it really be this perfect? 13 Feb. 2012
    By MyKeyReviews TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
    Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    This High-Definition remastered game has literally left me speechless, before I decided to put in the disk, I got down my old PS2, blew off the dust and whipped in Metal Gear Solid 2 - Sons Of Liberty (PS2), Due to the picture which was originally not meant for 1080p resolution being stretched across an 1080p TV screen, I didn't get that sense of feeling I had when originally playing it. I did this so not only could I compare the difference, but also wanted to check my memory card which I had two saved slots; one from 2003 & another from 2005! Can't believe how long it's been!

    So anyway, after having a little browse I decided it was time to turn on the PS3, insert the HD collection and start up the game.

    Before you get into the game you are presented with a title screen featuring the games in an order relevant to the MGS story timeline: MGS3 - MGS2 - MGS:PW, I personally really liked the way it was laid out and you even get a chance to view the whole instruction manual before starting the game.

    The first one I started with was MGS2, as soon as the opening credit/movie came on I instantly had an overwhelming amount of nostalgia running through my head... it looked beautiful, the up-scaling was PERFECT, it looked just like as if I were playing it for the first time in 2002, if not better!

    As for the menu system, you navigate with the "X" button rather than the classic "O", you can still make the thunder sounds at the title screen though.

    Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection is what it says on the tin. It's a collection of some old classics, brushed up in HD and put on one disc (two on the Xbox 360), not much more nor less really. However, it's an opportunity for not only hardcore fans (like myself) to reconcile their love with these games but a great opportunity for those who missed a few of the games or are simply new to the series and have heard all about Metal Gear and want to give the series a try for themselves, and at a good price.

    ====================================
    Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
    ====================================

    Originally released in the UK in March 2002, this was the sequel to the critically acclaimed PSOne game, Metal Gear Solid which came out in the UK in 1999 and the first Metal Gear entry on the PlayStation 2. This game is divided into two chapters, the Tanker (which is more of a prologue) set in the year 2007 and the Plant/Big Shell set in 2009 chapters. In the Tanker chapter you play as Solid Snake who is now a member of the UN recognised anti-Metal Gear group, Philanthropy who, with the backup of old Shadow Moses (see: MGS1) colleague and friend, has been sent to investigate and expose the development of a new Metal Gear project being developed by the U.S. Marine Corps, of course all this goes horribly wrong. The Plant/Big Shell chapter is set two years later and you play as newbie green agent Jack or "Raiden" as he's codenamed to dismantle a terrorist threat and rescue the U.S. President, or so he believes.
    The graphics of MGS2 was quite simply stunning and the best ever when this came out, and today in 2012 they still stand their ground, especially with the HD lighting although it's obvious the textures are from the PS2-era.
