    There’s a reason why Metal Gear Solid is so beloved — if you’ve never had the chance to find out, now’s the perfect time to take the plunge.

    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).

    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]

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!

Even if you don't think you will like the games (in my case, i just didn't like stealth games), Give it a shot. After all, It's 7 classic and legendary games for only a 50$ price tag. Expand

    No doubt a remaster very well made for fans of Metal Gear on PS3 and especially for people who have not played the previous to learn the history.

    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.

    This is a disaster on Konami part as far as I'm concerned. MGS Legacy Collection is for people who want to play the entire MGS series fromThis is a disaster on Konami part as far as I'm concerned. MGS Legacy Collection is for people who want to play the entire MGS series from start to finish, so imagine my surprise to find out that the first and most critically acclaimed MGS, which you want to play as a first MGS title, is not even included on the physical discs. After searching what is going on you find out that they didn't bother to add it and just sliced the digital code for download somewhere between useless manual and Konami promo cards. Even worse is the fact that they sell region locked codes, so the code won't work on EU versions of this collection. The worst part is the Konami customer center, when I wrote them with this problem, I got a reply after a week of waiting that said I should contact another Konami department, as if they couldn't transfer the request internally. Their final solution was something to the effect of buy the collection again, give us more money, and the highlight was the signature - Thank you for your interest in Pro Evolution Soccer, which I never even mentioned. Worst case of terrible money grabbing corporation with absolutely zero customer-friendly behaviour. It's also worth noting that this review has been deleted before, that's why there are only positive reviews of Konami products, Konami is corrupting media to publish only positive reviews, but they will never stop the freedom of speech. This is just a fair warning, avoid this collection, especially if you're in EU, it simply doesn't work. 0/10 Expand
