4.0 out of 5 stars Passion still present but needs tweaking, 3 Dec. 2005
This review is from: Metal Gear Solid 2 (PS2) (Video Game)
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.
