Metal Gear Solid 3DS Looks Inferior to PS2 Version

By   /   Jun 4, 2011


If I would want to play re-play a game on handheld, I would rather play an improved version of the game. Metal Gear Solid 3DS looked better, improved at least visually last time I saw it but, after watching this trailer, I am rather disappointed with it’s visuals. If you watch Metal Gear Solid 3DS E3 trailer and have played the game, you will notice the difference in graphics.

If you can’t remember that much, we have an image comparison of Metal Gear Solid 3DS to Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater on Playstation 2 to refresh your memory.

You can clearly see the visuals of the Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater on Playstation 2 are far superior to what offered by Metal Gear Solid 3DS. I don’t know whether the 2D output of the 3D image decreases the image quality or it’s just the resolution on the tiny screen compared to the resolution of the TV. But if the comparison is to be taken, Metal Gear Solid 3 looks visually better on old Playstation 2 than on the next gen Nintendo 3DS.

If you consider the other third party games like Resident Evil coming to Nintendo 3DS, Metal Gear Solid 3DS needs to improve. I feel third parties should work more on the titles they are re-releasing on Nintendo 3DS, atleast bring them to today’s standards using the latest technology. What do you think ?
