Substance: The offline review,
This review is from: Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence (PS2) (Video Game)
A brilliant game even without online!
Metal gear solid 3 subsistence has been rated one of the top games on ps2 for many reasons manly to its online games.
Now the question I will answer is:
"If I dont have online ps2 is it worth it?"
The answer in truth is yes (for the right amount) The game is great if you have never played MGS3 buy it now!. If you have played/owned/own mgs3 and DONT have online, you should think about it.
The game has a new camera which makes it A LOT better, you can see all round you by using the right analogue stick (like in games such as James bond: Everything or nothing) and this means a lot less frustration. It also makes the game look more 3d which is always good.
Aside from the new camera there is all the downloadable camo`s from Snake eater ready to put on your mem card such as "santa" this are fun to have but come a a high price... (you must save them to yr card)
If you don`t have online you will have access to a great secret theater mode, Snake vs. monkey (from mgs3) and the original Metal gear and Mg2 which are nice to have but obviously look terrible.
Now this I was really looking forward to Metal Gear 3 the movie!
Unfortunately when I sat down to watch it the first thing i noticed was that ITS NOT A DVD! its a damm ps2 disk! meaning you cant play it on dvd players. That was annoying but I didnt mind to much so I put it in and started watching and.... The quality of the cut scenes are terrible it looks really lo-res and it ruins the experience, on top of that its not even wide screen to be honest it looks like the makers throw it together in 5 minites! this is why mgs3: S scores 4 instead of 5 stars.
So in conclustion buy it if you don`t have SE but if your not online get it for about £18 as thats really what its worth
