With the HD Collection, there's not a whole lot to complain about without feeling like an entitled jackass. If I could make one complaint -- one minor complaint -- it's that some of the cooler bonus features from Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance and Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistance are completely absent from the HD Collection (not to mention the ultra-rare Document of Metal Gear Solid 2). It's true that these extras aren't exactly essential, but at the moment they only exist on last-gen hardware, and with limited print runs to boot. Regardless, the sheer immensity of this collection continues to astound me, and while price should by no means be the ultimate deciding factor in a review, with the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, it's impossible to ignore. Simply put, this single disc will keep you highly entertained for several staycations to come.

The Metal Gear franchise of games can be summed up in many ways. Pretentious and frustrating come to mind, yet they can also be described as the most innovative, inventive, and influential action game series of all time. One thing for sure, there is simply nothing else quite like Metal Gear Solid and even though this doesn’t include the best game in the series, the original, this HD Collection’s great value lays in the gameplay. While this collection doesn’t give you the complete picture, it highlights many of the reasons the Metal Gear Solid series has such a devoted following. At the end of the day the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is a must buy if you consider yourself a real gamer, or if your just someone who is looking to relive some older Metal Gear Solid titles.

The Metal Gear franchise has a long history and many exceptional moments. While this collection doesn’t give you the complete picture, it highlights many of the reasons this series has such a devoted following. The fight against The Boss, Colonel Campbell going nuts, the haunting tune as Chrysalis flies by – these are the kind of memorable events that define Metal Gear, and they are just as awesome as you remember.

Overall the Metal Gear Solid Collection is a great package and one of the best bargains at $40. You will get 40 – 50 hours out of all three games and that is assuming you only play each once. The controls work great when translated to an Xbox 360 and the gameplay hasn’t aged at all. The upscaled graphics and reworked textures stick very close to the original games while providing some much needed detail. There are some shortfalls when it comes to the graphics, especially in Peace Walker, but that has nothing to do with the excellent port Konami has put together and everything to do with the fact that it is a PlayStation Portable title bumped up to HD. If you’ve had the urge to sneak around in Snakes shoes once more than heed the call. The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is the standard by which future HD collections should be judged.

As an overall package, the quality and quantity on offer here is irresistible. Slightly smudgy textures and some framerate issues mean these HD upgrades don’t match the lofty restoration work seen in the Ico/Shadow Of The Colossus HD combo – yet when it comes to supreme stealthy fun, Snake’s collection remains Solid gold.

The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection brings five MGS games to this generation of consoles, with three of them bringing full trophy support and three Platinum trophies. Remastered audio and video makes the games not only easy on the eyes, but quite a bit of old school fun in a new package. The transition into HD isn’t as good as it could have been, but you’re still getting three of the best games in the series — of all-time even — on one disc for one low price. If that doesn’t make an exclamation point appear above your head, I don’t know what will.

If you are a true fan of the Metal Gear Solid series, owning this collection was never in question. If you’re not a fan, maybe you should be. This is a must have for everyone’s PS3 game collection.

All told, however, one must take note of a very simple fact -- Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is so damn good that it single-handedly justifies the $49.99 asking price. I would happily pay that for the game on its own, so the fact that it comes with the still-engrossing Sons of Liberty and an extraneous Peace Walker is pure gravy. All told, this is a package that manages to feel like it went over and above despite a handful of glaring omissions, and creates a package that Metal Gear Solid fans won't regret picking up.

There's no question these games are still worth playing, even if the selection is incomplete. There's something to be said for stealth that still makes you tense up when making a mad, if calculated dash across open ground - and in those uncertain seconds lies everything good about MGS; its fine balance between success and collapse, indulgence and innovation.

When you bundle together three games that people define as "classics," you expect an amazing product. The Metal Gear Solid Collection delivers that. The controls, stories and content so many fell in love with years ago are here, but time shows up as Solid Snake's greatest enemy. Modern conveniences have led gamers to expect certain things from their stealth action, and the early titles don't deliver that. Still, games can't move forward without knowing where they've been, and the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is a welcome, enjoyable glimpse at what once was.

Metal Gear Solid is a potpourri of ideas that insists you take the good with the bad. Certainly indulgent, it's also melancholy, exhilarating, clever, and ludicrous. It's never entirely clear what, if anything, Kojima and company are taking seriously - and the end result, in this collection, is a fascinating chronicle of one of video games' strangest successes.

Si on ne répétera jamais assez que ce type de compilation s'adresse principalement à celles et ceux n'ayant pas eu la chance de connaître ces jeux lors de leur sortie initiale, avouons tout de même que Konami nous gâte avec ce Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. En effet, en lieu et place des deux jeux habituellement proposés, on aura ici droit à trois, voire cinq titres si on compte dans le lot les deux Metal Gear sortis sur MSX. Si le travail effectué est une fois encore réduit à sa plus simple expression, le contenu devrait suffire à lui seul à vous convaincre tant les épisodes PS2 restent emblématiques sans oublier un excellent opus PSP, étonnant dans les directions empruntées, mais ayant sa place dans la mythologie de la série.

That being said, he games do not give me the same feeling they once did. Sure, the original releases had their faults, but that did not deter from the story or the world. Now, it does. This could be due to the fact that in this generation we have several game franchises that put you in a similar role and which have all had Metal Gear Solid off of which to build.

In any case, if you are a fan of the Metal Gear series this is a must have. Or, if you are a newcomer to the series who wants to get into the game, this is a great collection to pick up, no one will be disappointed. For the great price of $39.99 with the number of hours of playtime and the amount of games in this collection it is hard to resist.

Sporting three all-time classics and two retro gems - all for the price of an average new release - the compilation represents unbelievable value for money. And the fact that the collection houses definitive versions of each game, complete with extras and enhanced visuals, only adds to the appeal. If you wish to re-sample some of the series' high points, or simply want to see what the fuss is about, Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is one of the greatest gaming compilations we've ever played. Not a fan? This is one collection that will fail to sneak up on you.

Sett till antalet speltimmar samt det låga priset på den här samlingen går det inte annat än att ge den ett toppbetyg. Men med tanke på att serien vilar så tungt på sin övergripande handling, som dessutom då och då kompliceras å det grövsta, är det en klar brist att inte det första Metal Gear-spelet finns med här. Lägg därtill att en del bonusmaterial från Metal Gear Solid 2 och 3 är borttaget. Så med tanke på att samlingen till stor del kommit till för att locka nya spelare så är den inte speciellt lyckad. Betyget blir därefter.
