Okay, I got Metal Gear Sold: The essential collection, which includes MGSone, MGS2 subtancances, MGS3 substance but only CD 1 so If I want to see the Demo theature I calll my friend to lend me MGS3 substance CD2 and ill let him borrow MGS2 since thats my least favorite of the three and its not because of Raiden, its because it has the most confusing story out of the whole series and I only like the intro and thats about it but I can see that in Youtube, anytime I want.
Okay, lets talk about Metal Gear Solid since thats my favorite one out of the 3. I havent played this game for allmost 8 years. I feel very old now since I dont mind the crappy graphics from the original Playstation, in fact this game looks better then Final Fantasy 7. Thats right I said it because it looks less blockier if that even a word. I have to say that the controls are very hard to get use to, after playing long hours of MGS4 the controls for MGS feel old as my parents and trust me there old. I cant get use to using square to aim and to shoot. I want R1 to shoot and I cant get into first person view to shoot things down unless I use the Stinger or the Nikita and thats about it for my complaints with the controls oh and snake is bit stiff with his movements compare to the new version and that top down view, gets annoying at first but then I had to agian rely on that small rader of were my enemys are at which is a bit useless in some boss battles but the only thing that draws me in, is its story, which is best out of the 3 but part 4 is on top though.
On a 40 inch HDTV the widescreen parts of the scenes do look very small which also kinda annoys me but still this game has the best lighting Ive seen for a 1998 game. I might as well hook up my PS3 on my 22 inch monitor to play this game since it looks dark and a bit fuzzy at times on a bigger screen. I do love the music even though its only 3 songs in the whole game, there one of the best songs I can tolerate for an old game and its really epic of a theme song which is sad that its not in MGS4 which I would love to have that theme song in Old Snake's Ipod.
I allready beaten the game recently and it actually took me 10 hours to finish since I remember in the PC version, I used a trainer with infinite life but I said forget it. I had to beat this game normally and yes its freaking hard compare to the newest version or Im getting rusty with old games since the new ones are pampering me with easier ways to figure out stuff.
Im glad I got Metal Gear Solid: The essential Collection if not I would never get this masterpiece of a ****c game. I might replay it to get the stealth and the other ending, then I would play it one more time and give it a rest but at least I have this game in save points to important parts and boss fights so if I want to replay a part I can do so, like I did for MGS4 and its awesome I can make multiple PSone Memory cards in my PS3, which are dedicated to the original Legendary ****c Metal Gear Solid.
