This is the perfect edition of this series.
The only reason I didn't give this a 10 was because I wish it had the original MGS, or even Twin Snakes (despite the common consensus that it was bad)
Seriously, this is awesome. I had my doubts and reservations about it. I was concerned about the graphics and controls being dated. The graphics are fine, if not better than most HD Remakes and the controls are fine too. It took all of 5 minutes to get used to. And I'm totally loving the game.
There simply is no substitute for MGS Stealth nowadays. I actually found this game refreshingly relaxing believe it or not.
So, not only is it MGS 2, with all the bells and whistles, but Snake Eater may be the best game on the PS2. PLUS Peace Walker? Come on man! That game was phenomenal! People were wishing it was a PS3 game, and now it is! Complete with fantastic Co-Op and all!
Oh, and you even get Metal Gear and Metal Gear II, just because.
This is a fantastic collection, better and more complete than most, and getting it from GameFly is a steal as it's certainly worth the 40$ for a purchase.
I highly recommend this to anyone who's played these before, missed out on them in the past or is looking for a GOOD STEALTH GAME. They're few and far between and this is unquestionably the best one out there.
A perfect Christmas for MGS fans and newbies alike

When I had bought the playstation one back when I was fifteen years old, the first game that I had for it was Metal Gear Solid 2: Solid Snake, I have been a fan of gaming and the series ever since.
Metal Gear was what Splinter Cell was to the original Xbox, a game changer in its many times at bat. The gameplay was unlike anything I had ever seen right on up to Guns of the Patriots and Peace Walkers (which I have never been able to experience until now). The premise of the series snuffed your logical thinking right out, and replaced it with one of the most satisfying Role Playing/Stealth Action experiences ever made. The characters are some of the most memorable, whether you love or hate them, in gaming history.
As a veteran to the series, the extra add-ons are more than enough for many play-through's again for me. Widescreen HD 60 frames per second. Trophies enabled. PS3 to PSP transfer and remastered audio for Peace Walker. 500 VR and Alternative Missions. 3D camera in Snake Eater. Massive Graphical Updates. Improvements all around!
The Collection consists of HD remakes of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, and Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker (originally PSP exclusive), and the first two Metal Gears (The MSX version of the first (new experience again), and the PSone version of the MGS2 without HD.)
This is an excellent choice for a gift if your loved one is a fan. The new generation of gamers may find it out dated and controls may not suit them either. The Metal Gear Solid HD collection, rent or buy, will be a wonderful nostalgic journey, with a new twist here and there for many, and a stellar new gaming experience for the new avid young gamer as I and many once were!
So many wondeful memories, its good to be human sometimes. Hail Kojima

three of the best video games ever made onto one disk (PS3). Do I need to say more?
YES! these games upconverted to HD so they may play on your 46 or 56 inch screen to look phenomenal. The games visuals aren't changed, but the truth is they're able to sustain their beauty due to the fact, that they were craftly built in the first place.
Gameplay is amazing, enemy AI is the best I've seen in a stealth adventure game.
Story is very touching and dramatic. MGS is one of the very few series in video game history were you not only connect with the charcters of the games, but it makes you want to know the people behind each character.
