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 review…


It's so easy to dismiss the recent rash of HD re-release collections by banging on about what they ultimately are: cheap and easy. Publishers take a quick glance into their back catalogue – not very far, as most have been PS2-era – add some upscale...

Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection is more than a convincing argument to upgrade from your old PlayStation 2 copies. It’s an essential title in the library of anyone interested in narrative-lead gaming.

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection Review


HD Collections are becoming commonplace in the current games industry. Halo, Prince of Persia, Tomb Raider and most notably The Ico & Shadow of Colossus Collection are just a few of the series that have made the transition from the previous generation....

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection Review


You ought to buy this for the Snake Beater achievement alone (get caught by Otacon “stimulating” yourself)…

Three great MGS games. Need we say more?; MGS3 looks damn sexy in HD; Substance and Subsistence; New online support elevates Peace Walker to a new level; Metal Gear 1 and 2

minus a few of the old favorite mini-games

Review: Metal Gear Solid HD Collection (PS3)


This year's nostalgic renaissance continues with a stellar up-rezzing of three of the Metal Gear saga's best and brightest.

Three great games at a (slightly) discounted price; upscaled visuals look great; Peace Walker can be played without permanently damaging your wrists

Some disparity between textures and character models; games do show their age in both their glacial opening pacing and clunky controls; no Snake vs. Monkey

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection


It's hard to review a 'HD Collection', because the games within have already been released for several years, so story and gameplay wise, it's all been covered by now. In the case of Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, these games have been more than...

Graphics update makes the character models and back grounds much smoother ; New achievements added to game are hilariously named and oddly specific ; Nostalgia factor is incredibly high, and with 3 games in one collection, it is worthy of the title

Mechanics are convoluted and sometimes frustrating to use ; Lacks any real form of tutorial (predominantly in Snake Eater) and you are thrust straight into the action ; Why no original Metal Gear Solid

Again I'll say: It's hard to review a 'HD Collection'. In the end, a person's experience will be shaped by their original views on the game. For a person like me, who had only watched her older brother play the games, it was a novelty to try them...
