Disc Two of this collection is the HD Collection (MGS 2, MGS 3, and Peace Walker), plus the two Digital Graphic Novels in movie form. This marks the first time that the Digital Graphic Novels are released in the States. Once you input the disc into your PS3, you will find the Digital Graphic Novels under the videos section of the XMB. This, for me, is worth the price of admission alone. I own a physical copy of the graphic novels, but it's so much better to see them in action with full voice overs.
Disc One is Metal Gear Solid IV. No frills, no extras.
The voucher was not working earlier today, but this was a mess up on Sony's part. The scheduled PlayStation Store update came much later than usual. The voucher nets you Metal Gear Solid, and Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions. This also marks the debut of the VR Missions on the PS3 and PSN. I'm not sure if it'll be sold as a stand-alone, but it might happen.
The 100 page art book is the size of a blu-ray case. It has a neat collection of promotional materials for all games of the Metal Gear Solid series. It's not hardcover, but it does have a neat embossed cover. All in all it's pretty great.
If you're not all that interested in the Digital Graphic Novels, then you could pass this collection up. Essentially, what you are getting here is a repackaged HD Collection, and a repackaged Metal Gear Solid IV. It's really awesome to have almost every single game in one box, but I can understand why some people would not be eager to double-triple, or maybe even quadruple dip.
I, for one, am very happy with my purchase. 50 bucks is cheap for 8 games and 2 Digital Graphic Novels.
The entire list of games is as follows:
Metal Gear (Accessed through the Metal Gear Solid 3 menu)
Metal Gear 2 (Accessed through the Metal Gear Solid 3 menu)
Metal Gear Solid (Digital only)
Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions (Digital Only)
Metal Gear Solid 2: HD Edition
Metal Gear Solid 3: HD Edition
Metal Gear Solid 4
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
as well as:
Metal Gear Solid: Bande Dessinee (Digital Graphic Novel)
Metal Gear Solid 2: Bande Dessinee (Digital Graphic Novel)
Luckily, you can bypass this issue by creating a fake US account (no credit info needed), and entering the voucher from there. You can still play the game even after you log back in from your original account. Sadly, I couldn't make use of this on my PS Vita, as it is only limited to 1 account per device :( ....
The included art book isn't something to look forward to, to be honest.
This still deserves at least 3 stars because the games are still solid and awesome!
Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection comes with 8 games!
1. The original Metal Gear*
2. The original Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake*
*Can be found on the main menu of MGS3: Subsistence
3. Metal Gear Solid**
4. Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions**
**Downloadable from Playstation Store as PSone Classics via online vouchers included inside the game box.
5. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (Substance version)
6. Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (Subsistence version)
7. Metal Gear Solid: Peacewalker
8. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
MGS 2, 3, and Peacewalker have all been remade in HD and are PS3 remakes.
The Legacy Collection comes with 2 discs:
Disc 1: Metal Gear Solid 4. That's it.
Disc 2: Comes with MGS2, MGS3, MGS Peacewalker, and the two digital graphic novels - MGS Bande Desinee/MGS2 Bande Desinee. These graphic novels are accessible under the 'Video' section of the XMB menu with Disc 2 in the PS3.
You also get this 100 page artbook which features loads of promotional artwork from all the games in this collection and extra promotional artwork from the HD collection and the 25 year anniversary. It's just about the same size as the game case. Some people complained about the artwork, but it's SUPPOSED to be promotional. All the artwork in this book will either be advertisements promoting the game or some type of promotional poster. I liked it.
I also see people complaining that we're only getting downloadable copies of MGS1 and MGS: VR Missions and not the original disc copy. The main two reasons people are upset over this are because
1. This means they can't play it and then resell it.
2. It'd be nice to have the original disc copy for collection purposes.
I don't really care that we're only getting downloadable versions. I wasn't ever planning on selling them anyways, and I'm not a collector. As long as I can play it I'm happy.
Some people were confused about the two graphic novels so I'll explain. There was originally a game on PSP called Metal Gear Solid: Digital Graphic Novel. In some MGS DVD thing that was only released in Japan, they remade the PSP game, but took out the interactivity of the game and basically made it a graphic novel movie thing. It was released as Metal Gear Solid: Bande Desinee, and it's basically a comic-graphic novel-esque representation of the events that occurred in MGS1. They also made a second one called Metal Gear Solid 2: Bande Desinee, which has the same comic-graphic novel-esque style, but it's a representation of the events that occurred in MGS2: SoL. This 2nd one was only on DVD though, there wasn't an interactive game version of it. Anyways, these two movies, remade in HD and once exclusive to Japan are what you're getting with this collection.
One last thing. I know some people wanted there to also be an HD remake of MGS: The Twin Snakes, the gamecube remake of MGS1 for PS1. I'm one of those people too, and it would've been a great addition to this collection, but I won't let that detract from my rating of the review, so this stays at 5 stars.
For the hardcore MGS fan, it's not EVERY Metal Gear Solid game that's ever been released, but it's definitely a collection worth picking up. You're getting way more than $50 here.
For the casual gamer or someone new to the MGS franchise, this is an excellent collection to start out with. All the games that you'll need to understand the main story are here in this collection, so it's a great collection to pick up for newcomers as well.
There's lots of content to enjoy here, and many hours of playtime collectively. Get it!!
