[PS3 Review] Zone of the Enders HD Collection

My interest level for Zone of the Enders HD collection was very low at first. When Konami announced that the collection will include the demo for Metal Gear Rising Revengeance, my level of interest shot sky high. The original ZOE was released along the same time as the launch of the PlayStation 2. This time around, the HD re-release is also accompanied by Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner, the sequel to the original.

I don’t remember much of ZOE. I remember seeing a magazine ad and all I could focus on was the Metal Gear Solid 2 demo announcement. I did buy the game when it was first released, just for the Metal Gear Solid 2 demo, and tossed the ZOE disc to the side. ZOE is as basic as it can get. Storyline is much like any other anime that was produced. Typical simple boy stumbles upon the Oribital Frame (the giant robot in the series), tragic stuff happens, boy becomes hero.

But what ZOE lacks in story it makes up for in gameplay. The controls are so easy to master that a young kid can play it. Although up-converted to HD, the graphics are still blocky and you have to endure cut scenes similar to PlayStation 1. It is so hard to force yourself to time travel, so to speak, to play such old games, however if you want to up your street I.Q. regarding Hideo Kojima’s games, then you cant go wrong with this one.

Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes World Premier Gameplay Video

Watch 10 minutes of Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes’ Demo shown during the Metal Gear Solid 25th anniversary panel at PAX Prime.

“We’re not going to say that it’s Metal Gear Solid 5,” Kojima said after the demo, “but it is a prologue.” Kojima also confirmed that the demo was running on PC hardware that was similarly equipped to PS3, and that the final game should closely resemble the demo video.
Kojima also confirmed that he is personally creating Ground Zeroes.
