Whether it’s the advancements and stealth mechanics found across Snake’s adventure in the tanker and Raiden’s quest throughout the Big Shell, or the eclectic group of antagonists the game throws at you, or the overarching themes about the future of warfare, humanity, and the downsides of freely-flowing information, Metal Gear Solid 2 has it all – and then some. To say it was ahead of its time would be an understatement.
The reach of its themes and the execution of its gameplay were unmatched in it’s time, and even today hold up shockingly well. It’s a game that must be played to be believed.
