No I completely understood all of the story. I think its a FANTASTIC story I just think its not told very well.Conrad Wentzel said:Honestly if you didn't like Metal Gear Solid 2 because you thought the story was bad, it was probably because you didn't understand it. It was sort of like how I hated Fight Club the first time I saw it because I was too young and stupid to understand the deep concepts explained in the movie.
I truly believe either Kojomi has gone insane sort of how George Lucas went insane with Star Wars or that he truly did not want to make a fourth game and was forced to by Konami. It would explain why the game basically undid everything the other games setup. I also like how everything in the fourth game was answered with nanomachines. Sometimes if you can't come up with a good explanation, it is best not to explain it at all.
The same thing with the star wars prequels, I think they are great story's, but the story's are told very badly.
If MGS:2 was less heavy handed and it explained things more through cutscenes and game play instead of the codec I would probably enjoy it just as much as snake eater.
You know what, now that you mention it, the game is probably a lot worse than I let myself believe lol.Matthew94 said:The bosses are boring an unimaginative, they are probably the worst out of the 4 games.
The game essentially ends after act 2. Acts 1 and 2 were the only acts with decent gameplay, the rest is just a way to push the plot forward.
Gaping plot holes, where did raidens second arm go?
Every bloody cutscene starts with "the nanomachines..."
The codec is WOEFULLY underused and as a result all that plot trivia gets put into more cutscenes rather than bring optional.
Drebin's shop unbalances the whole game. You may say "don't use it" but it doesn't matter, 95% of gamers are still going to use it.
Big Boss coming back, really?
I could go on.
I just block out most of the bad stuff and let the good parts shine in my memory lol.
I pretty much agree with all you said.
However the one thing that really bugged me was Naomi trying to have a tragic death scene with the damn little robot. It just made me laugh.
Otacon used the stealth camo in the first game, why couldn't he use it here?
Oh and johnny is a bullshit character, and should have just stayed a joke.
They all had fixed cameras, but mgs2 was the worst one imo. I dont mind fixed cameras as long as they are done well.lemby117 said:
