I own all of them and I've got to say having them put on 360 is like being a kid again waking up on christmas morning.
Great stories memorable characters and locations.
Also having peace walker with it is an added bonus, mission style mgs chapters, playing as big boss himself [after the snakeater game], and playing as other characters like kaz and random msf soldiers [msf -your own military resistance soldiers in peacewalker-].
The only way to make it any better is to bring back the original MGS for PS, and MGS Ac!d for psp. Remaster them and put them on the marketplace
Oh well I can dream.....
But still this series is a must play for all generations, even those that never played one before.
MGS1 was the very first video game i ever owned. and i played it into teh ground. i mastered it. my dad got it for me the year it came out(also got my first console the ps1 at the same time.). i was like 7 and i instantl fell in love with this game. i have played every single Metal Gear to come out except MGS4. i never owned a ps3. some people wrote that this series needed the first one incuded and i more than agree. i would buy it without hesitation if that was with it. even if they HD'ed mgs1 and sold it seperately on the xbox i would get it. The metal Gear Series id the ONLY thing i miss about the playstation and now i have nothing to miss. THANK YOU KOJIMA!!!! The games are great on 360, it is a bit tricky mastering the controls on an xbox controller though but you get used to it fairly quickly.
Seeing Sons of liberty and Snake eater redone with HD graphics is pretty amazing. This collection is worth it just to relive those game experiences alone. I would have much preferred to see a x360 version of Twin snakes (the original mgs1) instead of a port of the half cocked hand held game Peace walker. I gave this review a 9 rather than a 10, even being a big MGS fan, merely because peace walker's gameplay just feels so out of place. It really feels like Konami jumped the shark with that one, I would've much preferred to see a 1, 2 ,3 punch.
