Is MGS2 the only good MGS game?

To be honest I liked all the MGS games I played so far. 2 was alright but I wish the Tanker Chapter was longer or I wish the main story took place in the actual city of Manhattan rather than on the big shell. I liked the final boss fight though.

In my opinion, Metal Gear Solid is a franchise where you really can't rank the games. You expect quality and receive quality, play through the game, enjoy the story, finish, repeat, and look forward to the next installment.

All four major installments have their own unique gameplay elements, characters, and environments. It's really a rarity to have continued success like the MGS series has had.

Also, the Twin Snakes is seen poorly? The only negative thing I could say about it is it's Gamecube exclusive and I'd love for a port to PS3.


I like this guy.

MGS1's story is flawed. Why is liquid snake trying so hard for solid snake to get killed by foxhound when it turns out he needed snake to be alive to activate rex -_-


remember the fight with vulcan raven in tank?? liquid told raven to let snake go... he didnt tell raven to kill snake

i loved twin snakes it was my favorite one. then mgs3 is a close second. 2 and 4 were the worst two to me. 2 is much too convoluted for my tastes, and 4 lacked any serious gameplay. mgs1 was my fav one though and twin snakes is the only version id play--the ps one version aged horribly. the remake is perfect, prob the best game on the gamecube ever. im not sure why anyone would dislike twin snakes maybe youve been talking to a niche group, almost everyone ive ever spoken to agrees its the best one, and it sells for like a hundred dollars lol



Because even if you were to forgive the inferior VA, it doesn't use the original MGSaga soundtrack, it doesn't use the MGS1-3 controls, it's balancing is out, and most importantly the presentation and story unfolding are not faithful to the original.

It's a good/great game, but not part of MGSaga.
It's like if Holywood played the real MGS1 and made a movie out of it.

MGS2 and MGS4 are tied as the worst MGS in the series.

no MGS3>MGS1>MGS4>MGS2


This post nailed it.

Only a crazy person would say MGS2 is the best in the series.

MGS2 is my favorite but I definitely wouldn't call the game the only good one in the series.
