Great Port for the Vita,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Metal Gear Solid HD Collection (Video Game)
I won't go much into game specifics because there are a ton of reviews for the games themselves out there and by know you probably already know how good and popular the metal gear series is. So instead I'll talk about the Vita version. This game looks crisp and nice and plays really well on the Vita. There are some touch screen features added on to this game, but don't really think I'll use them at all. The touch screen features aren't things that really change the gameplay much and most will probably ignore them.
If you love playing the Metal Gear series over and over again and want them on the go then you should definitely pick this copy up, the games plays great and look great on the Vita. There is no new content compared to the PS3/Xbox 360 versions. Just the fact you can carry it around and play it whenever and the fact that you can save your game on your PS3 and continue it on your Vita and vice versa.
If you've never played these games before you are really missing out. There's a reason they have ported this series to many systems and re hash them every couple of years. They are in my Top 10 games of all time. Yes, they're that good. I've boughten these games several times, the remakes, the Substances, Substinanceseses (lol), the Ps2 collections, the HD collections for consoles, and now the Vita version.
No, this does not include the Peace Walker game.

No Peace Walker?? Thats great because that was by far the WORST Metal Gear Solid game.

Portable Ops was the worst. And that's a fact.

I would say the Acid ones were the worst

I don't have the PS Vita, so I have a question. Can you actually pause during the cutscenes for both MGS2 and MGS3 on the PS Vita? There is no way to halt the cutscenes or codec conversations on any console (not even the PS3 or Xbox 360).

Hitting the PS button during any Vita game will completely pause/suspend the game and bring you back to the Vita home screen. This is a great Vita feature, because any game can be suspended at any point, regardless of if the game allows you to pause at that time. The Vita can even be put into sleep/standby mode, and your game will resume right where you left off when you come back.

That is sweet. But I can assume that this won't work on the PS3 version, right?

Peace walker is fun on the PS3. it just sucks on PSP and Vita because of the control scheme. However, when you get used to the controls is not so bad.
