From the critically acclaimed director, Hideo Kojima, Metal Gear Solid HD Collection offers a handful of the most popular Metal Gear Solid titles from the past in true HD for the first time ever. Featuring three complete games, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, the HD Collection offers old and new fans a chance to experience the epic game play, design and storytelling of the MGS franchise.
The "Metal Gear Solid (MGS)" series is the seminal work of Hideo Kojima, Japan's master game creator, and the progenitor of the stealth action game genre. The series has become a global phenomenon, with over 27 million copies sold worldwide. The player controls a secret agent from an elite special forces unit who is sent on solo sneaking missions through enemy installations, vast jungles, and sometimes even the thick of battle. Alone and surrounded by the enemy, even a special forces agent will find it tough to come out alive. But that is the secret behind the series' popularity-the cerebral challenge of figuring out how to avoid combat, and the thrill of sneaking through enemy territory undetected.
The MGS series is also known for its storyline, which blends seamlessly with the gameplay. The scenarios are based on extensive research and incorporate the drama of actual developments in society.
These elements have made MGS what it is today: a mature work of entertainment that transcends national borders and the confines of video games, and one of the leading products of the Japanese content business.
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty
After the Shadow Moses incident, technological data on the nuclear-armed walking tank Metal Gear leaks onto the black market. Solid Snake and his allies form the anti-Metal Gear NGO "Philanthropy" and set out in pursuit of a tanker carrying a new Metal Gear prototype. But Snake falls into a trap set by former FOXHOUND member Ocelot, and is believed lost along with the tanker at the bottom of the Hudson River. Two years later, the Big Shell, an oil spill cleanup facility constructed on the bay, is taken over by terrorists led by a man claiming to be the long-lost Solid Snake. The government sends Raiden, a new recruit in the new FOXHOUND, to infiltrate the Big Shell and rescue the US President, who is held hostage inside... The underlying theme of this second entry in the series is "memes," or cultural genes.
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
The story shifts back in time to 1964, the height of the Cold War. Naked Snake-the man who would later become the legendary mercenary known as Big Boss-heads into Soviet territory to help the scientist Sokolov defect to the West. But the mission ends in failure due to the betrayal of Snake's mentor and mission advisor The Boss, a female soldier known as "the Mother of Special Forces." The Boss defects to the Soviet Union, taking a miniature nuclear warhead with her as a gift, which her new hosts promptly launch at a Russian research facility. Naked Snake heads once more into the Soviet Union on a mission to kill The Boss... The third MGS game tells the story of men and women who struggle to remain loyal even while their fates are at the mercy of the ever changing political "scene."
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
Stories tell of a legendary solider who once waged war against the world. His name was Naked Snake, a.k.a. Big Boss, and the truth behind this legend will finally be told. The era is the 1970's . Big Boss had stationed his soldiers in Colombia, South America, where he was approached by visitors from Costa Rica, a "nation without a military." In the shadow of the Cuban Missile Crisis, as Latin America became a key to maintaining the power balance between East and West, Costa Rica had miraculously managed to maintain its peace and neutrality. However, in various regions of the country, a mysterious armed force seemed to be engaging in suspicious activities. Now, to preserve peace in this nation without a military, the soldiers move into action. In time, they would be known as the founders of "Outer Heaven."

Awesome Metal gear collection that has me hooked for 6 months and still does not let go!
I had the original games of this Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, but now the HD games are wow!
This Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is amazing and is a great way to play these titles. If you don't own the original consoles and even if you do, then this is a must buy on PS3 just to play through them again in stunning HD.
This Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is a must have for every Metal Gear Solid fan. I am a big far of the series and I could not have missed this one. I'm currently playing MGS3 HD and believe me, the graphics, even for a PS2 game gone HD is amazing. Masterpieces from Hideo Kojima once again... 10/10
MGS HD Collection has been on my radar for quite some time now, and a few weeks ago, I finally purchased it and I am very happy I did so. I hadn't played MGS2 and Peace Walker yet, and only played a little of Snake Eater so this was the perfect opportunity to play these games in full regalia. MGS2 is a fantastic game with excellent graphics, a somewhat weird story but very intriguing nonetheless, the gameplay takes some time to get used to if you're used to MGS4 controls, it runs smoothly at 60 fps and is a very good game. MGS3 is a masterpiece of storytelling, one of the finest stories I've come across in playing videogames and as of now my 6th favorite game of all time. The graphics once again are excellent the frame rate is smooth, the camera is rotatable which I believe wasn't included in the original Snake Eater (Subsistence did have it though) and it just plays fantastic. If you play them in order of release, you should be accustomed to the controls and play through this a lot smoother than you did MGS2. It has a camo system and a stamina system which really add to the game in my opinion. MGS Peace Walker Looks really good considering it's a PSP game, the surroundings are like an ugly PS2 game, but the character models are actually really nice and surprisingly detailed. I haven't finished this one yet, but am about 75% in. The gameplay is very handheld-like with missions that last up to a few minutes (if it takes 5 minutes it's long, not counting boss fights). Throughout the game you can recruit new soldiers, mechanics, cooks, and even tanks. You can research new equipment and weapons with the mechanics with GMP, a currency you make through the soldiers. MGS Peace Walker also has online co-op and competitive multiplayer, not very live now but daily I see around 90 people online. Overall this game is definitely the most bang for your buck I've had this gen, so if you've been wanting to try this out I definitely suggest you do.
The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is really a great product! It contains 2 games that made the history of video games, plus Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker which provides a totally new experience of stealth games! You must have this if you are an MGS fan!
What is there to say about this monster-pack apart from WOW!!!
The Game of course deserves 5 stars, awesome.
Metal Gear Solid HD Collection almost looks like a brand new game. The HD update is one of the best and plays like it's way ahead of its time because Kojima is a real genius. If you have not experienced these games, this is the best way to play them because it includes extra features like the option to change camera angles. Also, the excellent PSP Peace Walker makes a welcome experience on consoles with dual sticks. If you are a fan of Metal Gear, you need to buy this.
