Metal Gear Solid The Legacy,
This review is from: Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection (PS3) (Video Game)
Metal Gear Solid Legacy has almost every single Metal Gear game besides Portable Ops, The Twin Snakes and the Acid! series.
+ All the best MGS games are here! 8 in total.
Of course if you are reading reviews for this the chances are you have already played at least one of the games so I wont say too much, but all of them are superb.
+The digital graphic novels
Not seen the second one yet but I do like the artwork used for the films. The first was previously on PSP and the second was previously unavailable.
+ Countless hours of gameplay
In paricular Peace Walker has lots of side missions as well as some tough boss fights which will keep the game lasting longer. The second game has some extra Snake missions and the third game has the arcade ports of Metal Gear 1 and 2 from way back in 1987. All of the games here are at a satisfying length.
+ The HD games look great
Both Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 from PS2 games look stunning and really polished. And very little has changed with the gameplay. The camera from MGS 3 is changed to play like Subsistance and I definatly preferred this to the origional. The PSP port of Peace Walker looks great especially considering it was made for a small screen. With a second analgue stick the controls feel much better for the PS3 in my opinion.
- MGS1 is download only!
This is really disappointing because I really feel this should have been on disc. The VR Missions is also a download.
- Double dip!
This was released far too soon after the HD collection. If already own the HD collection and MGS4 this adds very little. Metal Gear Solid 1 is available cheap on the PSN.
- The art book is nothing special
All it really shows is promotional art from the games and honestly I think pictures are way too small.
-The menus should have been clearer.
It took me forever to find Metal Gears 1&2 (which as I mentioned earlier is a part of MGS3) and as well as the Graphic Novels (which is under Video on the XMB menu)
While the set is not perfect its still a fantastic buy overall and I would definatly recommend picking this up if you don't own the HD collection or are new to the series.
