From the critically acclaimed director, Hideo Kojima, Metal Gear Solid HD Collection offers a handful of the most popular Metal Gear Solid titles from the past in true HD for the first time ever. Featuring three complete games, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, the HD Collection offers old and new fans a chance to experience the epic game play, design and storytelling of the MGS franchise.
The "Metal Gear Solid (MGS)" series is the seminal work of Hideo Kojima, Japan's master game creator, and the progenitor of the stealth action game genre. The series has become a global phenomenon, with over 27 million copies sold worldwide. The player controls a secret agent from an elite special forces unit who is sent on solo sneaking missions through enemy installations, vast jungles, and sometimes even the thick of battle. Alone and surrounded by the enemy, even a special forces agent will find it tough to come out alive. But that is the secret behind the series' popularity-the cerebral challenge of figuring out how to avoid combat, and the thrill of sneaking through enemy territory undetected.
The game itself is your fairly typical Metal Gear Solid fare game, but the added option of recruiting soldiers and managing your own mercenary squad is a lot of fun. Like collecting Pokemon you will find yourself trying to secure stronger team members and using them to build your army.
The gold standard for HD collections12/30/2011
This is by far the best example of an Hd collection. It's befitting that it's for one of the most influential franchises of video game history. If you're new to metal gear, now is your chance to catch up on these landmark games, including the first two metal gears only released for the MSX. If you're a vet, relive the magic of Kojima's masterpieces. Great value for the money. Also ignore the guy who rated a 1 star because of peace walker's graphics. it was a PSP game. It was never meant to look like a HD console game. it's only upscaled to look reasonably good on an HDTV. this is for the experience of the metal gear story, For fans, not an entire remake.
