Them's fighting words. Wrong on both fronts, first it's not terrible far from it secondly it's not a port it's a full remake like Resident Evil on GameCube was.


Apologies, I figured it was just a port. Anyway, all I can remember as far as Twin Snakes goes from that time is that whenever it was brought up on the old Gamesradar forums, it was met with shudders of revulsion and all kinds of bitching.

I would've bought it, but for you guys.


Twin Snakes was far better than the PS1 original.

Was quite disappointed that they didn't include the VR missions as a bonus though.


I've never played Twin Snakes, but MGS is one of my favourite games ever, and I can't see how the addition of first person aiming (and the tranquilliser gun?) could make it anything other than a worse game. The original game wasn't designed with that in mind so unless there were more changes I'm unaware of I can't see how it would work. Also I've only ever heard bad things about the cutscenes.

I'd like to play it myself one day to see exactly how the additions from MGS2 affect it.

First person makes it easier which you will probably think is bad. Tranquiliser lets you do a full no kill run which is great.

Yeah I don't think it needs to be made any easier, apart from some of the boss fights on Extreme difficulty it wasn't a particularly difficult game.

Paper Mario absent from a few lists - would I be right in assuming it's unplayed, rather than unloved?

Double Dash is not a good Mario Kart, and shouldn't be on the list, shame on you GRcade.

Other than that, great list.
