Product Description

Amazon.com

One of the most anticipated titles in PlayStation2 history absolutely lives up to the hype. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty is the follow-up to one of the most captivating and intelligent adventures on the original PlayStation. Solid Snake, everyone's favorite mullet-sporting supersoldier, is back, along with many other familiar faces and voices. While its predecessor was lauded for telling a complex story, this sequel has even more fascinating twists and turns. Also, like Metal Gear Solid, MGS2 takes console-game storytelling to an entirely new level with stunning in-game movies, great graphics, and game mechanics that let you find your own solutions to challenges. The game's twisting and at times bizarre plot will undoubtedly keep some gamers perplexed.

Konami has replaced the moronic enemies from the first MGS with more cerebral and capable foes; this causes an even greater emphasis on stealth than the original. The controls have been refined and Snake's repertoire of moves has grown, significantly deepening the gameplay. This is, technically and stylistically, one of the best-looking PS2 games on the market. The sound is also topnotch, with a fabulous score and outstanding voice acting. What makes this game such a standout, however, is how all of these sight, sound, and story elements combine to immerse the player into an entertainment form somewhere between movie and game. It will be years before Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty is surpassed. This is interactive entertainment at its finest. --Raymond M. Padilla

Pros:

  • One of the best and most complex stories in gaming
  • Outstanding graphics with many interactive elements
  • Excellent soundtrack and voice acting
Cons:
  • Long periods of watching instead of playing
  • Some extraneous dialogue
  • Solid Snake may inspire gamers to grow mullets

5.0 out of 5 stars Now that I've played more than the Demo... November 22, 2001
Format:Video Game
As promised I'd post an actual review of the game after beating it to a pulp.
Needless to say that this is an amazing game with a gripping story, and defintely a worthy sequal. To say that it has perfect top notch graphics and music that will blow you away. Not to mention its great character development and plot twists.
I won't give away any of the story where as to me (and a lot of other people) this game has some of the best Plot twist in history. All I will say is that the game is divided into two parts. The "Tanker" chapter and the "Plant" chapter. They both link in everyway and you can see if you play through the game.
The characters are a true treat in this game. There are several new characters introduced and they all have their own reasons for being where they are. However the main villian...compared to Liquid Snake isn't the best. Next to Kefka (FFVI) Liquid was probably the best villian of all time. In comparison, the main villian didn't live up to Liquid.
The music is breathtaking done by Harry Gregson-Williams (The Rock and Enemy of the State if you don't know him). The music will really catch you, and that intro music is just awesome!
I'm not much for graphics but I will say that the graphics are so good that when watching the cinema scenes they look like real people! Can't go wrong with that. Also, the voice acting is sheer brilliance. They actually show emotion and they have a change in tone when they're upset or sad.
It'll take you about 10-15 hours to complete the game your first time through but it is worth it. However, movie cinemas make up at least six hours of the game. This may bother some people as they said the first one was short. Sorry to say that the game is NOT short.

4.0 out of 5 stars Metal Gear Squishy January 10, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
Overall, a good game, but not a great game. The graphics and sound are terrific, of course, and the analog control is sweet, so I have no problem with the game engine itself.
In fact, I actually found MGS2 easier than the original game. The ability to target enemies in first person mode is a real plus -- it's like having a sniper rifle right at the start of the game. When you do trip an alarm and alert security, you have more "duck and hide" options this time around, so you won't end up getting cornered and killed by security guards as often as you did in the first game.
However, I am surprised that MGS2 doesn't have a VR training mode. Veterans of the first game probably won't need it, but newcomers will. Also Snake/Raiden have a few new moves this time around, so it would have been nice to practice your moves in VR mode before applying them in the "real world".
Alas, the bad news you've heard is true: Solid Snake, the hero of the original MGS, is a non-playable character throughout most of the sequel. While this isn't a big deal as far as actual gameplay is concerned (Raiden can equip the same weapons as Snake and combat remains the same), I do think it's a big mistake storywise. Solid Snake is a fun, tough, macho character and Raiden... well... isn't. (Imagine "Gladiator" with Leonardo DiCaprio instead of Russell Crowe as Maximus and you get the idea.)
Also the storyline itself is ridiculous. It gets off to a good start (the tanker sequence with Snake) but once Raiden's character is introduced the game starts hammering you with one conspiratorial plot twist after another. (Character A is working for B who is really working for C who is pretending to be D so they can capture E who is really working for F, blah blah blah).

5.0 out of 5 stars Metal Gear Solid 2 is a hot game June 10, 2002
Format:Video Game
Metal Gear Solid 2 is an excellent masterpiece made by Hideo Kojima. This game has superb graphics made with the excellent hardware the Playstation2 has. The gameplay is very good. I like the style of gameplay. The third-person view makes the game more realistic than some other some other first-person shooters on Playstation2 like "James Bond: Agent Under Fire" and "Time Crisis 2". The game runs at a nice, crisp 60 frames per second (fps). The game is violent in some ways, because you have to kill people with guns. The game has a very good story, with makes it more realistic, and the superb graphics tie it all together. I think that Hideo Kojima meant to make this game into a mini-movie in a way. There is many excellent FMV's (movies) which look very good. Some times in the game, there is too many movies, and to many Codec (communicator) calls. That gets in the way, and starts to get on your nerves. But it's okay. Some times the Codec calls last like 10 minutes, and that is annoying.
But even though they have minor problems, there should be no hesitation of picking this title of the shelves or off the online cart. If you don't have a Playstation2, get one, or if you have any Xbox,(which you shouldn't) Konami is being a good sport and is producing Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance for Xbox and Playstation2. You must play Metal Gear Solid for PSone to understand the storyline of Metal Gear Solid and Solid Snake. I believe it is available at Amazon.com for ... . Buy both today!

4.0 out of 5 stars Too little of that amazing gameplay! January 17, 2002
Format:Video Game
The most import thing to know about this game is its heavy reliance on story and movie. I find linear plot and strong cinematic scenes to be an enjoyable genre of gaming, but many people won't agree with that and be frustrated by the seemingly endless cut scenes that constantly interrupt game play. I'd say you spend about half of the game in non-interactive scenes, and that's being conservative.
That being said, I'll talk briefly about the plot without any spoilers. The plot is weird, outlandish and never stops twisting. You can't know what's going on, because it changes quite often in ways you couldn't imagine. Along with it are large numbers of references to previous Metal Gear plots, so it's worth playing through Metal Gear Solid 1, or at least being briefed on it, because the Shadow Moses incident comes up time and time again. In fact, you'll notice a lot of subtle allusions to Shadow Moses if you watch for them.
The game play is amazing. It's strange to have an action game where the best strategy is not to get into any fights. Still, since you're an infiltration agent, this style of game play is very realistic. When you're seen by an enemy, their first reaction is going to be to call for backup and jam your radar, likely making you flee for hiding spot until the commotion dies down. Still, crouching, crawling, sliding along walls and hiding under cardboard boxes are a lot of fun. And for the times when there are enemies you can't sneak around, you can always shoot them with a silenced gun and drag their bodies out of sight.
For those who just want action, they'll likely be sated by the various boss fights. Taking out Harrier jets with the rocket launcher or even large forces of soldiers with a sword is action packed.
The environment is incredibly interactive.
