Zone of the Enders HD Collection Review | Trendy Gamers

The Zone of the Enders games were Hideo Kojima’s interregnum titles, both of which came out in the periods between Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3. Both games center around the Orbital Frame Jehuty, a powerful flying mecha that lies at the centre of a growing conflict between the various factions of the Solar System in the future. The titular ‘zone’ of the Enders is the orbits of Mars, Jupiter, and the asteroid belt that separates them. Jupiter is the farthest extreme of human colonization as of the late 2100’s, and people who live and work that far out (such as our two protagonists, Leo Stenbuck and Dingo Egret) are referred to as ‘Enders,’ no doubt an allusion to the sci-fi novel Ender’s Game by notable crazy person Orson Scott Card. Both Zone of the Enders and its sequel, Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner largely flew under the radar back in the heyday of the PlayStation 2. It’s a franchise that many people know about, but relatively few have actually played, so I’m glad to see both games getting a second lease on life, even if it’s only to hock Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and drum up interest for the nebulous Zone of the Enders 3. (PS3, Xbox 360, Zone of the Enders HD Collection) 8/10

Never played the games the first time around but I'm hearing good things about the collection so maybe I'll pick this up sometime.

Second game is supposed to be great. Might be worth a look for that alone.

1st game is fun and The 2nd Runner is a blast! An awesome collection indeed ;)
