Retrospective: Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty

A typically bold Hideo Kojima stunned gamers when he revealed that the star of Metal Gear Solid 2 would not be Solid Snake, but rather an effeminate rookie soldier with floppy blonde hair. Raiden was universally rejected by Metal Gear fans, but this was exactly Kojima’s intention. (Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty, PC, PS Vita, PS2, PS3, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Some people hated MGS 2 because Solid Snake not fully playable, instead they're playing as the newcomer Raiden. Personally i don't have problem with Raiden and surprised with that plot twist. But Kojima successfully raised the bar with MGS 2. That's why MGS 2 still one of the best MGS i ever play.

One of my all time favorites.
Set the standard for stealth games, still no game can stealth game can top it. Pure stealth in the sense.
