    At the end of the day, you get a fabulous 'ultimate' collection of all the Metal Gear games that make us Metal Gear fanatics happy. While there are a couple of games missing from the 'portable' side of things, most of what you want is in this Legacy Collection. It will certainly be worth your time and money in exchange for playing this games once again (or packaging and storing them somewhere safe).
  4. If you’re an absolute newcomer to this series, this is must-buy material as it’s the best value PS3 bundle since the Orange Box. Each title has been lovingly remastered and every entry included pushed the boundaries back in the day to be the best titles of their release year, if not their entire generation. No serious PlayStation gamer should be without these. [September 2013, p78]

    The best MGS collection ever? No, the best gaming collection in history. It includes some critically acclaimed classics like MGS1, MGS2, and MGS3, and current gen titles like the flawless MGS4 and the biggest PSP game MGSPW.

    It's rather hard to make a review for a collection of 7 games, so I'll make it quick: don't go and buy it, run down to your closest gaming store and take this motherf*cker!

    Great content and great games. Need I say more? The games are legendary and even the older ones are still fun to play, but it feels dated. But the art book and the digital graphic novels are great and should introduce new players to MGS and bring back old fans Full Review »

    Why 10/10? Well, maybe because
    A: 50 Dollars for 8 games, an extra concept art book, HD remaster, and finally, everyone of the games are
    actually fun and classics from an older generation when fantastic story and good gameplay was actually important to companies. (As it still is with Kojima and Konami) Your getting your moneys worth, and your getting your hands on one of the best game franchises ever. All the titles other than Portable Ops (Which sucks anyways so your not missing much) Great, buy it.....Go, buy it....now. Full Review »
