Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance - PS2 review at Thunderbolt Games


Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty was possibly one of the most hyped games ever released, even surpassing the anticipation surrounding the first Metal Gear Solid. Gamers were yearning to have another great time playing as Snake, the rugged hero of...

Despite the extra levels and features, and the free inclusion of Document of MGS2, many who just want action may find it preferable to pick up Sons of Liberty on its own for £20 cheaper.

The same game with a few extra bits


Metal Gear Solid 2 : Substance is as I stated in the title the same as Metal Gear Solid 2 : Sons of Liberty with a few extra bits. It contains the main game with the two Tanker and Plant chapters but also includes: Virtual Reality (vr) missions, 5...
