The Metal Gear Solid series is known for its storytelling and unique gameplay. Sure you do sneaking around but the franchise has a history of being story driven. So if you like a strong story then this is the game for you. It is a cinematic experience mixed with clever gameplay. Graphically the game was superior in its day and really had a lot of clever level design. Sound was simply amazing and the cutscenes are well animated. Some may not like the slowness of the gameplay as its not a run and gun game. It is a stealth game which requires sneaking around and you have various objectives. The main goals are usually to not get caught. The series has always had great art style and this game is flourishing in that category. The difficulty can be extremely hard on higher settings. The manual for the game is in depth unlike games today in 2009. It goes over a wide variety of information that comes in handy for quick reference. I started this series on the PS1 and continued it on the XBOX and onto the PS2 with #3. I wished I had the cash to pick up a PS3 so I could play #4 in the series. But until that time comes I will keep coming back to this game as I have been for 5 and a half years. This game is simply phenomenal in all aspects and it has great graphics,presentation,sound and gameplay mixed perfectly. With whats all involved it leaves you with a high capacity of replay value that is hard to find in modern games.

Hey, Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance for the xbox is an absolutely amazing game, with great graphics, an awesome storyline, and amazing voice acting. Though the game is great it has a few flaws. There could be pretty bad glitches happening at the worst times and the game over screen gets pretty annoying with otocan or colonel yelling snake. Besides that I cant really find anything else wrong with the game. It's challenging, but thats not a bad thing. Metal Gear cant be easy or else it isn't Metal Gear. The boss fights are easy at first but get harder later on. The cutscenes are insanely long but definitely not boring. In short Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance is one of the best games available for the xbox and is a must get game. My final score is a solid 10 for, great storyline, smooth controls, long length, and amazing sounds.

I have this game both for ps2 and xbox. All the metal gear solid games took me a long time to finsh besides metal gear solid 3 substience. Get this game its very hard on ps2 but on xbox way to easy. It was very easy because the xbox version has a action replay with it. So then you can cheat on this game. Action replay has cheat codes like infinte heath infinte ammo and invisblity. This game is the greatest with cheats. i got alerted 200 times one game i finshed but didnt matter unlimted hp. This was probley on of the best games ever. Its great for xbox. But still i like the controllers for ps2 so i would pick that one. Rember this game is 1 player only. NO online play. So overall get the game for xbox because it is like the best game ever for xbox. This is my only xbox game. i have a xbox,ps3,wii
