Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance Konami 2003

Konami sends the player as Snake for the second time onto the PC. With Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance, it's an XBox game which is again an enlarged version of the Playstation 2 version. Once more you must play as a secret agent Snake Metal Gear. Solid Snake must recover the stolen Metal Gear Ray from a group of terrorists bent on using its power for un-thinkable reasons. Along with the original espionage shooter comes a collection of 200 virtual reality (VR) missions. Missions range from killing certain targets and using particular weapons, as well as seeing the world of Solid Snake from different perspectives and styles, with 1st person target modes and a variety mode including crazy characters of different shapes and sizes. Also included are a range of alternative missions, that has you sneaking around and snapping photos of targets, to bomb disposal, all out destruction and more. It concerns, on this occasion, very modern weapons. The graphics are mostly rather done with loving detail and also the sound is quite well done too. Unfortunately, the control is rather insufficient, as a direct XBox conversion, for the PC player (mouse support is absent). There Splinter Cell offers clearly a better option. Also the camera perspectives vary and provide those not console-experienced players some confusion. Whoever ignores these problems and has already played Splinter Cell, can find some pleasure in this game too. Even if it can't keep up with topline PC games, it offers good atmosphere, great cutscenes and a varied arsenal. It was one of the first games to be only on the DVD format for PCs which had been shipping with more dvd drives than cd-rom ones since 2001.
