This review is from: Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance (Xbox) (Video Game)
This is just a simple review to tell anyone looking, NOT to buy this game if you fail one of two reasons, you don't own HALO or you don't own SPLINTER CELL. Don't get me wrong, this is an amazing game, thats why i gave it 5 stars, I've got the original on the PS2 and completed it plenty of times and for about half a year was my favourate game of all time, on any console. But now the times have changed, HALO is not a mindless blast-em-up kind of game (like Quake III for example) that many reviews would lead you to believe, it is as tactical as MGS2: SUBSTANCE but comes with the extra fun of blasting aliens (it doesnt sound that interesting but it is, trust me and thousands [maybe millions] of other devoted fans) and then theres SPLINTER CELL, as tactical as you get and with graphics that kick solid snakes ass. I know you'll probably be thinking that this should be a review on the HALO game page but as I said I am just warning you that you should buy HALO and SPLINTER CELL first, if you trust youself with £35 that you will like MGS2: SUBSTANCE if you havent played it before, honestly you will get much more value for money and enjoyment from playing co-operative with a mate on HALO or sniping a terrorist from a rooftop on SPLINTER CELL than you would playing a buffed up version of MGS2 from the PS2.
