If you’re a fan of the Metal Gear Solid franchise just stop reading this and buy it now, this is an absolute must have for any true fan of the series.
Having played through the games multiple times, I’ve found the games remain as gripping and engaging as ever. If however you want a more logical reason to buy this, then it’s simply value for money. As well as MGS2, MGS3 and Peace Walker you get a tonne of VR (Virtual Reality) side missions as well as over 130 trophies to earn.
Given that to complete the campaign of any one of these games takes about 10–20 hours on average, watching all cutscenes and codec conversations. Add in completing all the extra missions, unlocking trophies and playing each game multiple times (once is never enough) and you’re looking at over a hundred hours of entertainment. In simple dollar terms that’s less than a dollar for an hour’s entertainment. Given that a trip to the movies these days costs about 10–20 dollars for one to two hours of entertainment, this game is clearly fantastic value for money.
At the end of the day you’re buying a fantastic series and getting three games for the price of one, simply put with this game you can’t lose.
