In Metal Gear Solid the player controls a secret agent from an elite special forces unit who is sent on solo stealth missions through enemy installations, vast jungles, and sometimes even the thick of battle. Alone and surrounded by the enemy, even a special forces agent will find it tough to come out alive. But that is the secret behind the series' popularity—the cerebral challenge of figuring out how to avoid combat, and the thrill of sneaking through enemy territory undetected.
"We wanted to give Metal Gear Solid fans the opportunity to experience the series from beginning to end, all on one console," said Tomoyuki Tsuboi, President of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. "With the collection's multiple titles, players can truly see how Metal Gear Solid evolved into the critically acclaimed and beloved franchise it is today."
Along with the gameplay, the Metal Gear Solid series is also known for its storyline, which blends seamlessly with the gameplay. The scenarios are based on extensive research and incorporate the drama of actual developments in society. These elements have made Metal Gear Solid what it is today: a mature work of entertainment that transcends national borders and the confines of video games.
In addition, the Metal Gear Solid collection will also include two Ashley Wood digital graphic novels.
