Two years ago I started blogging on this site, and my first post was about Metal Gear Solid 2, since it was April 29. Get it? In honor of both, here’s a walkthrough of the entire game via Tactical Dinner Roll. (Includes all cutscenes and codec conversations)
Tactical Dinner Roll was kind enough to split the gameplay up into 23 parts in a playlist. Most of the clips are less than 20 minutes long, so it’s all digestible. Better than the hours long let’s plays, filled with commentary and editorializing. Nice touch too to have all the boss battles labeled.
A good thing about these walkthroughs is that you can see how others play old and familiar games. You would think that especially in such a small game (compared to today’s games) there’s only so many ways to play it,. And you know them all. A reasonable assumption. But I’m always surprised by somebody’s innovation or little trick I didn’t catch before.
Metal Gear Solid 2 Posts
This wasn’t intended to be a Metal Gear fan blog, but since it is one of my favorite series I ended up posting a lot about it. For those interested here’s a list of the posts I wrote that are specific about MGS2:
- Do you know what day it is tomorrow?
- OODA Gear…
- Solid Camera Angles
- Dreams of Metal Gear Solid 2
- The Document of Metal Gear Solid 2
- Metal Gear Solid 2: Solid Snake Big Boss Run
- Rose vs. Raiden in Metal Gear Solid 2
- Metal Gear Solid 2: Virtually Impossible Achievement
- Metal Gear Solid 2: Extreme Speed Run
- The Details of Metal Gear Solid 2
- The Least Understood Character in Metal Gear Solid
- Back to Metal Gear Solid 2 VR
- One Year later: Kangaroo Notebook and Metal Gear Solid 2
For the record, I have yet to get the Virtually Impossible achievement on the PS3 port. I also have not reviewed Kangaroo Notebook. But there are a few more anniversaries for the game coming up, so I can manage them. Certainly by the 20th anniversary.
Thanks for everyone who has read my blog and given me feedback in the last two years. Here’s to many more.
I have something special planned for tomorrow (you do know what day it is tomorrow, right?)
