28 February 2004 | by (Mexborough, England) – See all my reviews

I've been a fan of the metal gear solid series ever since it first appeared on the PSone. I've got all the games so far. I've just completed substance the other week. I completed sons of liberty in two days. After the credits had gone off, all i could say was "That game is the best game i've ever played" and after completing substance all i can say is that the game is perfect. The vr missions are very challenging and take alot of time to figure out a way to the end. The skateboarding is great to play on and i never get bored of playing on it. The snakes tales were better than what i expected. I expected them to be just like the vr missions but with Snake. They were alot better than what the magazines said about them. And what made it even better was that you got sons of liberty with it aswell. If you have got sons of liberty, get this! There is so much here that will keep you busy for ages. Well it did with me. This what sons of liberty should have been. Congratulations to Hideo Kojima on another masterpiece!
