They can say all they want about the resolution and the textures, those low polygon environments look like ass in HD.

Also, "Great" cut-scenes? Did he miss the day in school where they taught the words "tedious" and "endless"?


My complaints aside, I haven't played a MGS game since the second one near its release. I should probably check these out if I ever get a chance.

I started playing MGS 3 with the aim of playing all the MGS games in chronological (not release but story) order. But the top down camera was driving me nuts. So I would kind of like to try again with the HD collection. Also, the HD collection has MGS 1 and MGS 2 (the MSX version - whatever that means) which I don't own.

Orphiuchus, can I encourage you to try Peace Walker. Of the MGS games I have played it has (in my opinion) the clearest story line and exposition. It is an MGS game so it is still a little weird and complex in places.

For those who have yet to play MGS:Peace Walker, believe me, that game alone warrants the full price of the collection. It's that good.

PS: Now that they've confirmed Subsistence, will MGS2: Substance be included too?

I think this is a pass for me.

I loved the original Metal Gear & the followup: Snakes Revenge.
Great games.

Then came Metal Gear Solid & I was blown away. It was a good time & a fantastic story.

After that... They turned the series into one of the kookiest & jumbled through game series I've ever played. It's just stupid now.

I am not buying this because I think my head would look like a saggy balloon from all the confusion & horrible writing.

Snake Eater had a more straight forward story than MGS2 and 4. And this will be the third I've bought snake eater (vanilla on the ps2, and substinence when i had a fat PS3). I'm a sucker for MGS.

This is their HD version? Are those textures in high def? What the fuck is high def for them, 128x128? Was the originals 32x32? Those textures look like ass! And if they are remaking a game they should spend 5 minutes remodeling some of the assets, since it looks like most models are made up of 20ish triangles.

I will pick this up if only because I have never played 2 or 3 (Peace Walker and 4 either lol). I will play MSG1 3D when it hits for the 3DS. I already played that game years ago and got a long way through it.

I would like to play MGS4, but I doubt that will ever happen. Like rubbish said, the series has gone off the wall story-wise.

They are remaking MGS1 for the 3DS in addition to Snake Eater?

I'll be getting the HD collection for Peace Walker alone. Never got a chance to play it and I've heard it is canon, unlike Ac!d. I actually enjoy the plotlines and social/political commentary of the series...

I may have gotten that wrong Reckless, I think it may be just Snake Eater that is coming for the 3DS.
