About this deal

Remarkably the older HD Collection from 2011 produces better visuals in MGS2 and 3 than the Master Collection versions.

I feel an 8/10 score for a collection of games 3 generations and older is way too generous; is the score really a good reflection of the standards of games expected today? Nowadays, he can be found playing the latest and greatest PS5 games as well as supporting Derby County.

themightyant MGS1 requires a minimum of two playthroughs, and all three games ask you to get a Fox / Big Boss rank. Personally, I find these fixes more important in faithfully preserving the games on modern platforms than anything else, and shows the opposite of a cash grab. The bottom line is that the Master Collection presents the core Metal Gear Solid 1, 2 and 3 games with limited enhancements over any previous release. There's something to be said for having all these classics in one convenient package for today's consoles and PC.It's a bizarre situation on Series X as well, given the Master Collection produces a worse image than what we already had in the Xbox 360 HD Collection, running in back-compat on Series X. Each main title in the line-up will also include an exclusive digital Screenplay Book and Master Book that details the story and characters in that game. It's likely an incidental benefit of running either game from SSD-equipped modern consoles, but it's a clear plus. This 30fps cap on Switch has a domino effect on the game's motion blur effect, too, causing more notable banding behind camera movement.

These drops are hard-baked design choices that carry over from the PS2 days, as Hideo Kojima appeared to use frame caps for dramatic effect.DF Retro: Metal Gear Solid 2 - A Kojima Masterpiece Here is John's look at Metal Gear Solid 2 from 2017.

Running the Xbox 360 HD Collection on a Series X console gives us improved anti-aliasing, plus forced texture filtering via back-compat support. Today then, I'm honing in on the pitfalls present on PS5, Series X, Switch and PC, which certainly give us enough issues to talk on.For what it's worth, Konami has already promised updates to address several issues, with mentions of multiple bug fixes, improving cutscene performance in MGS2, adding a full-screen and window toggle on PC, plus CRT and aspect ratio options.
