So much more could have been done — even just on the purely resolution and frame rate end — to make these three classics shine once more. There are no extra bells or whistles to be found in the new Master Collection; the three games are as they were either 25 years ago or following the PS3 remasters from Bluepoint Games — save for a small resolution bump. If vol 2 can include MGS4 remastered a bit, Peace Walker, Metal Gear Rising, Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain and maybe Portable Ops as well I'll be really pleased.

If you select UK English or a European language from the front-end, the Master Collection defaults to the European version of MGS1, capped at 25fps to suit the 50Hz PAL standard - not ideal.I'm mostly referring to the fact I'd prefer that the collection of games were accessible within the one menu like most collections are. Booting up the PC version of MGS2 and MGS3 in the Master Collection provides perhaps the biggest shock of all. Spread across five separate apps on PS5, it can be a challenge to locate the specific version or the bonus feature you need.

Sadly the 30fps cap isn't even well-implemented with uneven frame pacing, creating juddery movement and drops below 30fps. I played MGS1 again a few years ago and actually felt like it held up extremely well to play personally.On Shield the game runs at 60fps, though this is aided of course by using a higher-clocked Tegra X1 than Switch's. In essence, both of these games are the same as HD Collection versions released in 2011 on Xbox 360 and PS3 of course, and there's no attempt to disguise the fact either. There's also no way to re-bind keyboard or mouse inputs, but at least you get this minor level of support for non-controller inputs here. Much like Switch, the game runs at 720p with zero anti-aliasing whatsoever, creating a busy, noisy image, though AA appears in MGS3 at least.
