TGS: Metal Gear Solid HD Edition hands-on look

0

This is basically a Metal Gear Solid fan's wet dream. More so if you're getting Metal Gear Solid: HD Edition on the PlayStation 3. Both versions of the game will include the MSX2 versions of Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, plus Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker (more on this game in a later post.) The PS3 version is the only one that will also include a PlayStation Network voucher code that will get you the first Metal Gear Solid.

I only got to play Metal Gear Solid 2 and quickly look over someone's shoulder at Metal Gear Solid 3. Really the only thing that's been changed with these two games is obviously the HD visual overhaul. The sounds, fonts and graphics have all been upgraded and it's all coming through at 60 frames-per-second. You also have the PS3 Trophy and Xbox 360 Achievements system thrown in for good measure.

Now just because the games are in 1080p HD doesn't mean everything looks amazing. Remember, these two games are PlayStation 2 era titles so a lot of stuff comes across blocky. The blocky-ness is just coming through in smooth and crisp now is all. Plus you're seeing the game in widescreen view too.

So yeah, it's the same Metal Gear Solids you know and love all but now in sexy HD packaging. What more could you want?
