    Not terrible, but not great in any way. Slapping MGS2 mechanics in MGS1 levels doesn't work that well; also cutscenes and voice acting are pretty... sub-par?

    It's not bad by any means but it doesn't live to the original in any way other than updated graphics. The over-the-top cutscenes broke all inmersion and realism of the original (Snake jumping on a missile to fire another missile mid-air, doing a backflip to dodge bullets like we're in Matrix, etc). Also the gameplay mechanics from MGS2 broke most of the mechanics in the original environment, either making it extremely easy by comparison or outright making some MGS2 mechanics useless (such as soldiers in caution mode, which makes no sense the way the scenary is set up as there's less hiding places like in MGS2).
    Again, it's not a bad remake (and I have enjoyed it a lot) but it doesn't live up to MGS1, 2 and 3.

    Gets MGS 4 out of just the PS3 while you're at it.

    Konami seems to have realised that they can profit from their back catalogue of games.

    Must be a slow day at the pachinko parlour.

    yeah i should be more clear, my last statement was intended that MGS1 has been made as GC exclusive and KONAMI seems doesn't wanted to invest much money and resource to make AAA games again, instead they focused on GAMBLING MACHINES.
    More like Konami will just get paid for licencing MGS1 to $ony and let them to do all the rest of job.

    Hmm. Someone in the reviews says that the GOG package for Contra and Castlevania is different from - and inferior to - the Steam versions!
    https://www.gog.com/game/konami_collectors_series_castlevania_contra

    I was wondering if they were doing something absurd like using the arcade versions, but at least they're not that crazy. You'd think that it would be pretty difficult to mess up NES emulation these days, though. (Is this the first time an emulated NES game has turned up on GOG, one way or another?)

    I still have original discs for MGS1 and MGS2 buried somewhere; I never did get around to playing them. I assume there are easy-to-use patches to get them to work on modern systems.

    I wonder if MGS1 has improved graphics in PC?.. I quite liked the GameCube version the twin snakes.... I already have MGS2 and all the others on my pc... MGS3 is actually my favorite of the 1st 3 games... But it's not on pc as far as I know...

    i may be the odd one out, but i just wish metal gear twin snakes got an hd remaster on ps4/switch, never understood why they didnt put it on the hd collection in the first place, it could be an alternative to the old as hell mgs1 psx graphics.

    My theory is that when the original developers of the remaster filed for bankruptcy, the source code is probably in the hands of whoever was in charge of the bankruptcy.

    Very good. Can I have Twin Snakes with HD/UHD textures and unlocked resolution slider please? Because it is objectively the better version of the game. Fite me. :ninja:

    Isn't the GameCube version the definitive version of the first game? I wonder if it will ever be re-released

    I prefer the Wii Gamecube emulator. One of these days I was getting back to that one, but I wasn't getting to grips with the gameplay, for some reason.
    I beat the PSX original with little to no challenge (the game wasn't that hard to begin with), but now I struggle with the controls.
    Go figure.

    But I wanna see Merryl's ass in true HD.

    And to think, some people believe Konami is remaking Silent Hill 1 and Metal Gear Solid 1.
