    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]

This is myThe first time I played the Metal Gear Solid games was through this collection, and I can tell this moment with all confident. This is my favorite gaming franshise of ALL TIME. The story, the gameplay, the soundtrack and everything was beautiful about it, and for $50. I think that we're ripping off the developer. So just get it.

    If you want more information. Here it is:

    Metal Gear Solid
    This was a PS1 game. I thought before starting playing that it was going to be a cliché PS1 game with slow gameplay, generic story and weird voice acting. Like Resident Evil 1 for example, but I was surprised. The game was actually great despite my expectation. The story was great, the soundtrack was stunning and the gameplay was fast and fun or slow depending on your gameplay choices whether you liked to go guns blazin' or take the stealthy way. Either ways, both the routes were fun. If you don't mind the old graphics. You'll enjoy this game.

    Metal Gear Solid 2
    A PS2 game. This is was an upgraded version of the first game in every way. Some people hate it and some love it. They changed the main character, and that's the main reason why people hate it. The story was confusing, but great once you play the other games after it since they explain everything you didn't understand about MGS2. In general, I can say that it was worth playing and you won't regret it.

    Metal Gear Solid 3
    Also a PS2 game. This one was different in great way. It's a prequel to the previous games, and it was a masterpiece. The heartbreaking story, the gameplay, the soundtrack. Everything about it was great. They changed the gameplay in a good way and gave you more freedom with it than the previous games. Just play it, and you won't ever regret it.

    Metal Gear Solid 4
    A PS3 game. This was the final sequel for the game. The same things I said about MGS3 goes for this one. The only thing people complained about is the long cutscenes, but for me I enjoyed it. It was the final part in the story of MGS, and had the end to everything in the franshise. So I'm glad they gave us long cutscenes because I didn't want them to leave anything unanswered or behind.

    Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
    This was a PSP game that was remastered to the PS3. It's a prequel to MGS1 and a sequel to MGS3. I can say that you won't enjoy it as much as the previous games, but it was a fun one. Had a few different elements, but you'll have the feeling that this game wasn't designed for consoles. If you're planing to play Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain. You need to play it. Otherwise, it was a fun game, but it won't stick in your memory as the previous games did.

    Bottom line, get this collection. you'll have a great and memorable time, and you won't regret at all.

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!

    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
