I never gave the Metal Gear series a try. I also heard of it but always passed it until I popped in this game and was taken away. The graphics are top notch and the story is deep. The controls are great but I do have a complaint..why switch characters midway. That is the only downfall of the game. Also, I thought the gameplay would be longer but it felt quite short. I still recommend it to everyone and am looking forward to trying out MGS III.
MGS2 was in it's own right a masterpiece. There was plenty of action and a hard driven story. Expanding from the popularity of the original psOne, Hideo Kojima brought Snake over beautifully to the ps2. But my biggest turn-off of the game is Raiden. For those of you who haven't play MSG2 please understand that the main character is not Solid Snake. You play as snake for about the first hour or so. Then the world is introduced to little, whiny, blond headed wimp Raiden. Alot of people were thrown off by this but don't fret. MSG2 still has everthing you've come to expect from the series and is truly one of the must play games of ps2.
