YEAR: 2002     FORMAT: PS2

The 100 Greatest Games | 51 | Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty


Following in the wake of the first Metal Gear Solid on PlayStation, many critics feared the PS2 upgrade would fail to match its hallowed predecessor. But in refining every facet of the stealth action - including giving players the freedom to use the environment more efficiently in their attempts to distract guards, and a more believable game world that reacted realistically to your actions - Sons Of Liberty was the next-generation adventure fans were yearning for, and the progenitor of a new wave of espionage games.

Memorable for...
A big WTF moment. Once the tutorial tanker stage is done you begin the game� as Raiden, a younger, greener protagonist who lacks the gravelly charms of good old Solid Snake. You get to pick up Snake later, but the initial thought that you might spend the whole game as Goldilocks made many a gamer's blood turn cold.
