    Metal Gear Solid HD Collection has probably the highest quality-price ratio you can get. You'd be mad to miss out on what's on offer.

    Three great games at a very good price, brilliantly standing the test of time and allowing Xbox users to play MGS 3 and Peace Walker for the very first time. An high quality package, strongly advised for everyone.

    When you bundle together three games that people define as "classics," you expect an amazing product. The Metal Gear Solid Collection delivers that.

    One must take note of a very simple fact -- Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is so damn good that it single-handedly justifies the $49.99 asking price. I would happily pay that for the game on its own, so the fact that it comes with the still-engrossing Sons of Liberty and an extraneous Peace Walker is pure gravy.

    Despite some missing pieces, Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection is a good value for fans of the series and those who like stealth games.

    In the end, with Metal Gear Solid HD Collection you are getting 3 games in a classic series that will last you a good 30 hours, maybe double if you partake in all of the side activities and extras that the games have. It comes close to the value of the Orange Box, especially considering that it is being sold for less than most retail games.

    It's hard not to fall for such an offer, of 3 great games for less than a full retail HD game. But at the same time, one can't help but notice some lazyness in the remastering process. Efforts have been reduced to a minimum, with no additionnal content whatsoever, and there are even some technical shortcomings (frame rate drops on MGS2 and 3). For the nostalgia, for the collection, for the fans, or those who never had the chance to play them, it's still a cult saga with memorable sequences.

    The mgs hd collection consists of 2 main entries of the series (mgs 2 and 3) as well as the big budget spinoff, peacewalker, the 2 msx original metal gear games, plus all extended content of mgs2, 3, such as the VR missions and the monster hunter minigame of peacewalker for a price of 50$. That's not a bargain, that's a steal. Expand

    this game might have very complicated stories and a lot of cut scenes but thats all part of the fun, the gameplay on each game is really fun and its 5 games for the price of one cheap game Expand

    Awesome game. I didn't even look at the mgs series until it came out on xbox 360. Love the game even though the camera isn't that great. I loved the splinter cell series before I even knew about this series. If only the camera and the controls weren't so dang complicated I would have given it a 10. Cutscenes are also very long but cool. DONT BUY THIS IF YOU CANT STAND CUTSCENES! Expand

    Say hello to 2011's version of The Orange Box. If you are a Metal Gear Fan, I highly encourage you to pick up this title because it is worth every penny and then some. For newcomers, the story may be a bit too much to handle with the absences of MGS1 and MGS4, but the gameplay and cut-scenes are way ahead of it's time and are now in glorious HD. Expand

    WHY WHY no MGS 4 but peacewalker a playstation handheld lump of rubbish port. The 9 is for how amazing metal gear solid 2 and 3 are to someone who never played them originally. Amazing games and ultimately worth it alone. Expand

    They're just remakes with previous addons, they didn't even update the contents or make real time cut scenes for Peace Walker. In addition, they didn't include the ps3 exclusive of MGS4. If you've played any of the previous version then this is not worth it, it's just the same dump in a different toilet. If you missed out on any of these games then do definitely pick this up, otherwise just move on, same old ****, nothing to see here. Keep in mind this review is by someone who played and beaten all the games in this bundle several times already on the original systems they appeared on and just could play through any of them again.
