General Comments
MGS 2 Sons of Liberty is one of the best sneaking games on the PS2. The graphics are top notch even although this is one of the earlier PS2 games. The storyline is similar to a film storyline. It keeps you gripped from start to end. You start off as Snake on board a tanker taken over by Russian Terrorists. Metal gear RAY is housed in the belly of the tanker and Snake must stop the terrorists and a few familiar characters from getting their hands on it. After that you go on to the Plant miision and play as the rather annoying, woman-like Raiden or Jack as he is known in the real world. You play as Raiden for 90% of the game. There are a few surprises along the way in the plant mission.

The characters are mostly the same e.g Cambell, Snake, Otacon etc but there are a lot of brilliant new characters that you learn to love. All of the bosses are new and harder than in the previous game, they range from being a whizz with knives to and master bomber to one who cannot be hit by any bullets or weapons and thus cannot die.

Some other characters include Rose, Raiden's girlfriend who saves data for you, Emma Emmerich, Otacon's sister who can destroy metal gear as she is a whizz with computers but what childhood fear will hold her back from doing so? Finally there is Plisken whom Raiden meets early on in the game. This familiar face will reveal his true self later in the mission.

Completing the game is an acomlishment in itself as you need a lot of strategy to finish both missions. When you have completed the game there is the option of going back and collecting all the dog tags from the enemies which I don't reccommend you do because it takes ages.

From defusing bombs to rescuing people to starring in your own love story, Metal Gear Solid 2 Sons of Liberty is one of the best stealth games on the PS2.

I hope my review was helpful to you.
