4.0 out of 5 stars A bit of an enigma... October 19, 2002
I mean, it is a game, but at the same time it is not...
Well, anyway, Document is basically an interactive DVD presented in two (almost three) parts.
The first is the game-like part. We are presented with five VR training levels that will be featured in Substance. They are pretty fun and challenging, but on the whole pretty disposable.
The second part actually has two smaller parts. The first is an in-depth look at the actual game content itself. You are allowed to examine the character, vehicle, and background models with almost unlimited camera control. You even get to 'play dolls' with some of you favorite characters; changing hair-colors, adding sunglasses, and the like.... You also get the average, run-of-the-mill Background Music Test.
The coolest feature in the content section is easily the Polygon Demo section, in which you are not only able to view the in-game cut-away scenes in their entireity, but you also have the option to, at any point in the scene, pause the action and move the camera around literally anywhere in the entire scene. This makes for a pretty good resource for directors (film and otherwise) who are interested in blocking actors. The only drawback (four stars) is the fact that these scenes are presented without sound (except for the Dual Shock vibration cues). I guess it was either an issue of space on the disk or an issue of using either the Japanese or English voiceovers. Anyway, the absence of sound is the ONLY disappointing feature to the disk.

4.0 out of 5 stars Documentation of one of the best games in history November 5, 2002
The Document of Metal Gear Solid 2 isn't quite a DVD and its not quite a Video Game. It's being referred to as an interactive DVD. Document has 5 VR (virtual reality) missions, that are a preview to MGS2: Substance. These are pretty easy, but the one with the Sniper Rifle is kind of difficult. It also has a ton of things documenting the production of the game. Including 3D Models, Story Boards, footage of Hideo Kojima (Director, Producer, writer, franchise creator) and his team doing research in New York, the entire script, polygon demos that allow you to pause and rotate around every movie sequence, programming techniques. And my personal favorite; every single trailer from the early test trailers to Tokyo Game Show 2001. I rate this item a four because non of the polygon demo movie sequences have sound, The TGS 2001 trailer is in Japanese, even though it was the first trailer to have english dialogue, and most of the features are still-photos or reading, which is kind of dull. But, if your a fan of MGS then it is definetly worth the twenty dollars.

4.0 out of 5 stars More games should do this February 10, 2013

The Document is an interesting slice of history. Included is the original concept art and story treatment for Metal Gear Solid 2, as well as a viewer for in-game models, levels, and cutscenes. If you're interested in film directing, graphic design, or software development and you really enjoy the Metal Gear Solid series, this product is for you. You can get a real kick of digging into the ins and outs of this game.

Honestly, this should have been part of the original game in the first place, instead of on a separate disk. It should also be available on the PC. This strange novelty is sort of a collecter's item now, so unless you can pick this up cheap I wouldn't recommend it. However, if you're part of the extremely niche market that would like this sort of thing, it's great.
