have wanted to play the first one for a long time [it was on the NES wasnt it],if its on xbox live will defintiely be downloading it once get it cabled up.

am probably prefer MGS1 for both the game and the soundtrack [and the fact it came with the shiny silver MGS memory card from release day],but a problem am had with it was the textures all being very similar,if are someone with a visual processing problem,it's really hard to make out what is what.

I played MGS3: Subsistence for the first time a few months back and it was an amazing experience; very tightly scripted and well-made. Beats MGS2 easily, and in comparison to the original, there's enough changes or improvements to warrant my vote for it.

The third one is the best in the series, so far. My experience of it is from the updated Subsistence version of it. I don't think I'd like it as much if I had played the Snake Eater version, as the over the shoulder camera adds so much to the game.

I really didn't like the second one very much at all.

If I had to choose any of the versions of the original MGS, I would choose The Twin Snakes, as the FP shooting and hanging areas change the game, making it easier in some sequences and harder in others (particularly the M1 Tank fight and the Rappel sequence down the Communications Tower).

The voice acting's better too, especially where Naomi Hunter, Meryl, Ocelot, Nastasha and Gray Fox's voices are concerned. Though I think Cam Clarke (Liquid Snake) and Paul Eiding (Colonel Campbell) missed the marks occasionally. A case in point is where Liquid says 'Love??? It's hate!' in response to Solid Snake's supposition that Liquid's reason for rebelling was a twisted love for Big Boss. Liquid's character model clearly shouts, but Cam Clarke doesn't shout it.

And while some of the action sequences are OTT (especially those involving the Hind D, missiles and the Stinger), the fights between Snake and Gray Fox, not to mention Gray Fox's final fight against Metal Gear Rex are very well done.

Hate to break it to you, but it was the same actress, Kim Mai Guest. All the original MGS voice actors returned for The Twin Snakes. They just used pseudonyms for the original because of some unions issue. In fact, the only character recast was Gray Fox, who was voiced by Greg Eagles, the guy who did the DARPA Chief in the original. Rob Paulsen did the voice in the remake.

MGS1 is an undeniable classic, but i'm gonna have to go with MGS3 Subsistence. it's just a better package. improved version of MGS3, online play, and the original Metal Gears 1 & 2.

MGS2...disappointing. i can beat it in a day and the story and gameplay is just REALLY unsatisfying. part of the reason i'm glad MGS3 went above and beyond with the boss battles. i mean sheesh, you fight a guy who shoots bees at you! enough sad!

I HATE Metal Gear Solid 3. To me the gameplay is completely broken. Ditto for Portable Opps. I'm expecting nothing from MGS4 as a result, but I guess I'll own it because it comes "free" with the new 80GB PS3 bundle.

MGS2's story was weak, and overall the location was weak compared to the first game, but it was still a strong release. IMO MGS1 is the best in the series artistically and in terms of gameplay. Kujima seems to be throwing out a lot of "oh look, it's just a game!" because he's scared to have his games judged on their real artistic merits-at least that's my take on it.

I thought the Gamecube remake was artistically inferior to the original. I set them up side by side when I rented it, and was shocked by how much more artful the original's presentation is. I don't think a bump in resolution and texture filtering begins to make up for that.

yay MGS 1 was by far the best. Cant beat the gritty look and cutscenes in that game. Meryl getting shot by Sniper Wolf is a moment you dont forget. The recent Metal Gear Solid games have been much worse in terms of plot, and they seem to have got ridiculously OTT. Like The Fear in MGS3 who isnt even human. and Vamp in MGS2.

I really do wonder if Kujima is going with these ridiculous plots because he's scared to have his games judged as legitimate works of art. It just strikes me as weird...like one guy's insecurity is shaping the major releases of a major publisher.
