IGN was de eerste site die mocht gaan snoepen van de demo van Solid Snake zijn tweede opkomst in Konami's Metal Gear Solid2: Sons of Liberty.
Ze vonden de game op het eerste oog zeer goed; mooie graphics, lekkere gameplay en nieuwe moves brachten deze gevoelens te boven.From there, the game demo was all gameplay. Several of the classic features from the Metal Gear Solid were instantly noticeable. The camera angles switch often from third person top down to first-person, depending on the scenario. Though there are many more weapons and gadgets available, we saw Snake make use of a 9 MM, a tranquilizer handgun with a razor-thin laser site, a knife, and his infra-red binoculars.
As Snake ran around from room to room several subtle details were noticeable. For instance, while on the deck, the rain came down and bounced off Snake body, just like in the demo. It looked immaculate, totally real. In the first-person mode, the rain actually hits and bounces off Snake's face, and slightly blurs his vision momentarily. The wind and rain appeared to knock him about the ship ever so slightly, and, we are told, will actually make it difficult to walk around.
Op de demo van MGS2 kan je nog wel even wachten, hij komt als eerste bij Konami's game Zone of Enders. Deze game verschijnt helaas pas in maart 2001.Bedankt voor de tip Luuk Hendriks!
