Apart from the excellent Gravity Rush about a week ago, PS Vita owners have not had much to keep busy in the past few months. It is probably why Konami decided to port its Metal Gear HD Collection to Sony's handheld, unfortunately not without forgetting Peace Walker in the process. There are most probably economical reasons for this, since the game can be pruchased on PS Store in its PSP version, and it's a shame, but you still get a lot of content from the two games available. MGS 2 comes with the extra Missions (VR and alternative) and the Snake Tales, while MGS 3 feature the old MSX2 episodes (Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake).
A few words on the quality of the port before you watch our high quality videos. Graphically, the two games are very faithful to the original versions, with great attention to detail, few aliasing issues and nice character models. The HD label enhances the overall look of the game, and although shadows are not as sharp as they are on 360 or PS3, MGS 2 and 3 both look good on the 5 inch screen of the Vita. Framerate is also very smooth most of the time, and from what we can tell, it runs at 60 frames per second in almost all circumstances. Sure, both titles clearly don't look as impressive as recent games like Golden Abyss, but the visuals are nice enough for a handheld device if you ask me.
