A misunderstood masterpiece

User Rating: 10 | Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty PS2

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty was one of the most hyped game of alltime. Many people were disapointed but I disagree. Find out more about this in my review.

Gameplay: It is an upgraded version of Metal Gear Solid. You will be crawling and shooting enemies in open-ended areas. You can now shoot enemies in a first person view and do many other new things to make the stealth aspect more realistic.

Graphics: They aged beatifully. It was one of the best game for its time graphically.

Atmosphere: The game has aan extremely unique feel to it. I can't describe it and I think you should experience it by yourself.

Music and sound effect: The soundtrack is epic and the sound effects can't get much better.

Story: Story is the most importent aspect of the game and I can't talk about it without spoiling it. It is a post modern masterpiece. What most people don't understand about the game is that the its 'flaws' were intentionnal and that they make the story better. I seriously think you should play it just for the story.

Charaters: Raiden migth be annoying but the game still features one of the best casts of characters I have ever seen with charaters like Solid and Solidus Snake, Ocelot and Otacon.

Innovative and unique: Unique is not enough for this game.
