First thoughts on the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection (US release)

I ordered the MGS HD collection for my PS3 from the US. I already played 8 hours of MGS3 and realized that euro country facecamos are missing as well as the Snake VS. Monkey mode in which the player needs to catch monkeys in a set amount of time.

The camos reached from French to German country flags and I found them a little bit useless cuz they never were as effective as the ordinary camos. Somehow I am glad that I don’t have to complete all Snake VS. Monkey stages since they were are good pain in the arse.

But I disliked the fact to catch all these frogs during the MGS3 main game. Some of them are easy to miss. Especially the frogs during driving sequences. I may not need to complete all S vs. M stages for a trophy, but of course for shooting all frogs. I wish it would be the other way around, but it’s fine. I see it as a challenge to shoot all frogs this time, since I always avoided to do it on the PS2 release.

I’m a little bit disappointed about the fact that there aren’t trophies for completing the two MSX games Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake. That way gamers would be forced to experience and maybe going to like the two classic games, which are part of the Metal Gear IP.
