Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance – Consumer Guide

Mike Doolittle's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Partial Nudity, Violence

Parents, take note of the violence and realistic behavior of soldiers—it may be too much for young gamers. There is no dismemberment, but plenty of bloodletting from well-placed bullets.

Fans of Sons Of Liberty may enjoy the extras, but they warrant a rental more than a full purchase unless you are a die-hard fan of the action. Substance is best experienced by Xbox owners who have not experienced the original game.

Fans of stealth games, from Tenchu to Splinter Cell, should check out the games deep, realistic stealth engine.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers will miss a significant amount of dialogue and in-game audio cues.
