Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is the most technically stunning video game ever made. It's also a fine example of storytelling prowess within its medium, combining gameplay and narrative so slickly and beautifully that it's impossible to...

Metal Gear HD Collection Review: The Best Stealth Action Anytime, Anywhere

 

Some of the most important stealth-action games of all time in one impressive portable package.

A few weeks ago, after realizing I've bought no less than five different versions of both Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3, I took to Twitter for feedback. Was I the only person guilty of re-buying these games so often? I've owned the original releases, the...

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection (360, PS3) Review

 

Three classic games in one package? Sign me up!

Three great games for one price ; Each game looks better than ever with the HD remake ; Allows old fan to relive their favorite moments and new fans to find them for the first time

Control issues are still there ; Gameplay may feel dated at times ; Very little else added in way of extras

Pretty much any flaw you’ll find with this collection is simply a statement on the era of gaming for which these games took place. The collection promises little else than updated graphics, and in that sense they knocked it out of the park. All three...

Review: Metal Gear Solid HD Collection

 

Metal Gear Solid has been a fan favorite for since the early 90's. Everyone and their grandfather knows who “Snake” is and his trusty partners “Raven” and “Big Boss.” Well now the classic series is out again in a nice little bundle to be played in...

Great HD quality graphics, improved audio and picture, replay all your favorite Metal Gear games in one nice set, the set even includes the original NES games

Collection does not include the first Solid game for PS1, graphics can be a bit glitchy at times, no mention of the NES games anywhere on the box or manual

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection

 

Metal Gear Solid is very much a love it/hate it series. Those that become absorbed in its shifting narrative, stealthy gameplay and unapologetically eccentric nature become obsessed, while those who find the series convoluted and confusing will likely...

While one cannot call this the ultimate tribute to the Metal Gear Solid series, it is still a glorious production indeed. At the end of the day, I'm still in a dream ... Snake Eater.

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection Review

 

Three Metal Gear Solid games are on one disc and in HD for the first time. Should you buy them? Yes. Yes, you should.

When you bundle together three games that people define as "classics," you expect an amazing product. The Metal Gear Solid Collection delivers that. The controls, stories and content so many fell in love with years ago are here, but time shows up as...

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

 

The Metal Gear series has produced some of the most memorable gaming experiences I?ve ever had over the course of my meager 23 years of life. So when I finally plugged my shiny new 80 GB PS3 into my television and popped in the Blu-Ray Metal Gear Solid...

It?s sad to bid farewell to such a remarkable series, but exciting to know that it ended with an incredible bang. Almost every aspect of the game has been combed, buffed, and polished, giving Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots a fine glow. In a...

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

 

So, can Solid Snake's final mission prove to be that exciting? Is there really life left in this aging franchise?

Good balance of combat/sneaking gameplay caters to any player ; The game tells a well written story which will fascinate and captivate most who care to pay attention to it ; Metal Gear Online and single-player unlockables offer good replayability

Heavy-handed storytelling is not welcoming to newcomers of the series at all ; Some departures from the style of previous games will upset fans ; Gameplay-cutscene ratio is a bit off

Metal Gear Solid 4 is a game which tries to do quite a lot – and succeeds. If the heavy storytelling and cutscene rate put you off previous titles, avoid this one like the plague as it probably won’t change your opinion. Although fans of the series...
