Totally Freakin' LOVE IT!

I already own Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and that game was totally off the hook, even if it was a little long, a little tough toward the end, and the cinematic sequences were at times unnecessary, but still one of my favorite series of games.

Moving along, this has everything a fan of the game series could ever want. Three games, including (shhh!! It's supposed to be a secret I think) some of the earlier "Metal Gear" games. No, not Metal Gear Solid, but the old 8-bit Metal Gear games. Not sure how they tie in with the MGS series, but still it's totally awesome.

Though I've never owned MGS 3 Snake Eater, or MGS Peace Walker, I have owned (in the past when I had my PS2 system) MGS 2: Sons of Liberty. So far everything in MGS 2 has been exactly as I remember it to be, so it's been really awesome re-playing the game from start to finish.

Totally worth the buy if you are a fan of the MGS game series. Also, on a side note, you can (if you have either the PSP or PS3) buy from the PSN (PlayStation Network) the original PS1 game Metal Gear Solid. I'm still trying to get through that one, but at least between having that game, MGS 4 and this particular collection of the MGS game series, you'll pretty much have every MG/MGS game that's been made.

Only downside is that when switching from one MGS to another, the controls are sometimes different, so watch out for this. This is why I couldn't give it a full 10. If there were some continuity with the controller settings, I'd fully give it a 10 no problem.

I've been a fan of the series for a very long time and this game nearly has everything! Every game from Metal Gear Solid 2 to Metal Gear Peace Walker. The graphics have been revamped and are looking good. This game has really high replay vale, too. It's going to take a long time to get tired of this game. I highly recommend trying this game out if you like action games.
