5.0 out of 5 stars WHAT A GAME!, 15 Mar. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance (Xbox) (Video Game)
I bought this game on the day it came out against the many reviews from my friends who have the game of the PS2. As a fan of the orginal Metal Gear Solid game on the PS1, I was hoping that Substance could repeat that magic that the first game contained, and let me tell you I was not let down.
The game takes place in two areas, a tanker and a the Big Shell, build as a environmental sign. In the first level, the tanker, you get to control Solid Snake the hero from the first game. But in the second level Snake is not playable, which is a minor con in my eyes.
The graphics of this game are good, but you feel they could be better, seeing the power of the Xbox. Also the frame rate at times crashs and the game goes really slowly, but this only happens at certain points of the game and is only a small annoyance.
The one thing that made my buy this game though was the storyline. In my opinion his game has the best storyline in the world. At parts it is hard to understand, but near the end the game takes a massive twist. BRILLIANT.
Overall if you have played the old Metal Gear Solid game this will really be a good buy as the game carries on the storyline. If you haven't then maybe think twice about buying it. The story goes back to Shadow Moses all the time and knowing what happened there will make the game easier to understand.
