Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection Vita Review | Game Insider

Game Insider: "In both, you’ll find the unique gameplay, story-telling and boss battles that have made the series so successful; the kind of experience that has usurped over three full days of my life when adding up the hours spent in each of my playthroughs, and I’m just counting these two games of the series. The themes explored are thought-provoking - Kojima does a great job of using actual historical events to augment the gravity of the fiction - but the game is heavy on exposition, so many hours will be spent sitting through numerous cut scenes and codec conversations to alarming frequency." (Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, PS Vita) 9.5/10

i literally cant put this game down, i LOVE both of them. its soooo perfect for the vita too!

My sentiments exactly. They do, indeed, play quite perfectly on the Vita. The touchscreen item and weapon management work incredibly well.

True.

Once you get used to the touch screen inventory on the Vita, it's quite strange when you go back to the PS3's HD remake version.

Not a deal breaker or anything, but I personally prefer the touch screen inventory system.

Awesome games. Wish they would have included a code for the PSP Peacewalker just on principle, though, so the Vita would be comparable to PS3 version content wise. Once they get PSOne classics online I'll be able to rock MGS1, too.

Loving this, and I've only fired up MGS2 so far.

Virtual Missions are perfect for my commute too.

It's amazing how well both games hold up. It's like revisiting an old friend, witnessing the familiar levels and situations and remembering the different approaches taken in the past. I still remember the anxiety I felt during my first fight with The End. Timeless.

I'm still holding out hope for a complete remake of the original Metal Gear.

MGS3DS was an absolute mess on the 3DS so I was worried that they might screw up the Vita version as well. Thankfully they considered Vita owners and they gave us a fantastic collection with 4 games ( if you don't count the Metal Gear titles).

So glad they listened to people who complained about the framerate in the 3DS version and fixed it in the vita version.

Agreed. No significant compromises had to be when ported to the Vita with the result being an improved control layout, and ultimately, a slightly better expereince than the console.
