Prepare to head back to Big Shell as Hideo Kojima's stealth opus gets the special edition treatment in Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance. Combining the massive selling and hugely acclaimed MGS2 in its entirety with a wealth of additional missions, modes and extras, MGS2 Substance is the ultimate espionage action experience. Among the profusion of additions to the epic sneak 'em up are Snake Tales, VR training scenarios and over 100 alternative missions, not to mention changes of costume for the leading characters and the chance to have Solid Snake bomb around Big Shell on a skateboard! As well as the hours of additional content and gameplay featured on the game disk, the European version of MGS2 substance also includes a bonus DVD: Document of Metal Gear Solid 2, an exhaustive behind the scenes documentary charting the production of the groundbreaking original game.
Metal Gear Solid 2 may have already shifted over 5.5 million units worldwide but, even if you've already saved the day in Sons of Liberty, Substance has much to offer MGS2 fans and completists. The tense gameplay and engrossing storyline of MGS2 is bolstered by Snake Tales, five all-new and exclusive missions that focus solely on Solid Snake. If you wondered what the original MGS protagonist was up to while Raiden was off disarming bombs and agonising over his relationship on Codec, this is your chance to find out. Meanwhile, there are over 100 other new missions to tackle, including Elimination mode, Hold Up mode and Photograph mode. If you're a little out of shape, or just want to test your mettle against odds that are stacked ludicrously against you, there are over 200 VR missions to test you. These increasingly demanding training scenarios test every aspect of your skill, from sharpening your aim on target ranges to avoiding gigantic oversized guards.
Combining the drama, atmosphere and cutting edge visuals of its predecessor with truckloads of extras and bonuses, MGS2 Substance is the complete Metal Gear package. Whether you're an experienced operative or sampling the game's tense delights for the first time, Substance is a massively comprehensive edition of a modern classic.
