Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance

The good:

- The story is nice
- LOTS of things to do
- Over 400 missions in total
- Cool, traditional stealth gameplay
- Skateboarding mode
- Get to play as various characters

The bad:

- The skateboarding sucked =\. But that was an extra feature for fun anyways.

Summary:

Now although its basically its Sons of Liberty with more things to do, Substance is one of the best MGS games of all time. After playing the main story, you might want to play it again because its really good. Other than that, there are the great graphics that only compliment the game itself because it just makes it look better, overall.

The thing I like about this, is that its longer. It may be the same thing as Sons of Liberty, but the extra missions are there for extra enjoyment. There are 350 VR missions and 150 Bonus missions that are there to keep even the best MGS players entertained,...

Holy crap, A halfway decent PC port..

The good:

The Graphics
The Sound
The Story

The bad:

Has a lot of video problems
Controls are bad
A lot of things not ported over to pc properly..

Summary:

Ok Lets start with all of the good things first,
The Story is very deep and involving, It involves terrorists taking over an offshore cleanup facility, Boats getting sunk, And goverment secrets.

The sound is amazing, Especially if you have a decent setup, The music composition is enough to make anybody get watery eyes, Especially when one of the characters die.

The graphics are pretty good, Provided you have a high spec PC you can improve over the PS2's quality, BUT there seems to be quite a common problem, When 'Model Quality' is turned up above 50% You start to get a really nasty white fog a...

Substance Abuse

The good:

The graphics, The sound, The gameplay, absolutely everything.

The bad:

Nothing, not a thing

Summary:

First off, everyone says that MGS2 has too many cutscenes.Okay,it has its fair share of them,but they make the game better.Without the cutscenes nobody would know what was going on ! Nobody would know that the Tanker was taken over by Russian Mercenaries until they got to the end.Nobody would know who Raiden was.And most important of all Nobody would know anything.
The graphics on this game are absolutely outstanding ony one very little mistake is in the whole game.And that is that when you hold a soldier up and you point a gun at his face,the gun goes through his head.Every detail is inclu...

9.0

Tactical. Espionage. Action.

The good:

LOTS of new content, A PS2 exclusive Skateboarding mode, 350 ENTERTAINING VR Missions, 150 alternate missions to keep you busy,NINJA!!! 5 Snake Tales & Sons of Liberty is included, A potentially humourous Casting Theatre

The bad:

The Skateboarding mode is NO Tony Hawk, the Snake Tales are so freakin hard!! Some of the VR Missions don't make sense, too little casting theatre scenes, useless Boss Survival Mode, DAMN Konami scrapped including the Documentary.

Summary:

This game might as well be the best game on the PS2 this fiscal quarter. Sons of Liberty was the PERFECT game, and it's good to see it back, but the quote "Substantial" features aren't enough to keep someone who bought Sons Of Liberty already buy Substance. But for someone, as myself, who never bought Sons of Liberty, its a Damn good 40 bucks worth spending (I got it for 30)Now, emmm the story is very diorganized, I had to go through the game 3 times to fully understand it. the skateboarding is no Tony Hawk, the controls are whack there, the Snake Tales are hard!!!!!!!! it took me 2 hours j...

5.0

Ha! Solid.

The good:

The gameplay is excellent and a lot of the features in this game really make it a very fun, action packed stealth adventure.

The bad:

The cutscenes are way too long and the camera angles are very bad.

Summary:

First off I would like to say that this game would have been given a 4.5 out of 5. The gameplay is awesome and heart pounding. The stealth action that is imployed into this game and all the different features is a big turn on. What really makes this game great is that you can go on a rampage or go try the more stealth approach which benefits people who like certain types of games. Also, another thing really great about this is all the different gadgits and objects that allow you to get through the level.

Now, as I said before, this game would of got a 4.5 out of 5 from me. But there are many...

8.0

MGS xbox style

The good:

Added VR missions, Snakes tales, and ever other little extra feature that comes with Substance.

The bad:

FPS lag when you go out side in the rain. controls.

Summary:

Well Metal gear soldi has come along way from its glory days on the Nintendo entertainment system(old school). To this modern day 3d wonderful game.

This Version of substance is just a copy of the ps2 verion with less features. It was release before and got less.

The controls are kinda strange at first but then get easyer to use. I mainly dont like the xbox controller but you get use to it.

The gameplay is basicly the same from Sons of liberty. Very wonderful.

The graphics are were this game shines. It is just beautiful to look at. Very many details and very little slowdown. Unless you choose...
