When I played through Sons of Liberty, being disgusted with the bizarre and implausible storyline twists (they might as well have thrown in space aliens) I couldn't stop thinking to myself that a re-make of the original MGS with the graphics and gameplay of Sons of Liberty would be quite awesome.
Lo and behold, Silicon Knights and Konami team up to do just that-- with excellent results. They even address the minor problems in the first MGS (a couple spots of weak dialogue, cheesy accents, especially from Nastasha and Mei Ling). The graphics, I daresay, surpass Sons of Liberty with ease. The cinematics have been totally redone as well-- the "hallway of death" scene alone would make it equal to a rated-R movie. And there's no idiot Raiden! The only MINOR problem with Twin Snakes is the music-- it just doesn't feel as "Metal Gear" as the original music in MGS, especially for the bosses, and the main theme introduced in Sons of Liberty makes only a few minor appearances.
Minor quibbles aside, I can't help but feel that the relentless bashing done by PS2 fanboys is merely because they're bitter that it's not coming out for their system. Don't worry, MGS3 is coming soon, quit complaining and let the Gamecubers enjoy this gem in peace.
