Presentation
Unbelievably high production in every aspect of the game, especially in the opening movie scene. Puts many Hollywood movies to shame. 10.0

Graphics
Still looking as great as it ever has. The slowdown hurts the score a little, but other than that, there is little to complain about. 8.0

Sound
Hollywood-quality (literally) musical score, great voices, and superb sound effects. It rarely gets better than this. 9.0

Gameplay
Tons of moves, lots of different tactics and weapons, and plenty of things you never knew you could do. It's too bad we were doing this a year ago. 8.0

Lasting Appeal
The extras alone contain enough material to almost be featured in a separate title. Add to that four initial difficulty levels and numerous in-game gags, and you've got yourself quite a time-killer. 9.0

OVERALL SCORE (not an average) 9.0

I thought about picking this up...but, with XBox Live and Unreal Championship launching in a few days, I cannot justify the purchase. Not only that, but, Splinter Cell is said to put MGS2 to shame.

Thanks for the news, though! :D
