    Awesome game, but Limited Edition not worth an extra $20, November 3, 2012

    LIMITED EDITION:
    I was expecting a lot more out of this Limited Edition. The Artbook is something only a little bit better quality than the Metal Gear Solid 4 artbook I got for free from reserving MGS4 from Gamestop so many years ago (Same quality you’d find in a $15 strategy guide, a lot less pages though). Then the CD is just…I wouldn’t call it horrible, but it’s pretty bad. I was hoping to get the theme songs from both games, but it only seems to feature a remixed version of one of them and then everything else on it isn’t worth listening to. Its sad when this game features one of the best, and possibly eeriest, soundtracks of the PS2 age. I would have appreciated it a little more if the game package was different than the regular retail also.

    I originally bought this being a Zone of the Enders fan, and seeing how it was nearly over $100 for the Limited Edition in Japan with the same content. I feel ripped off, but they must have felt even worse. (I know at least one review on Amazon Japan criticized how we got such a better deal, if you want to call even what we got a deal)

    ZONE OF THE ENDERS:
    The game itself is good. Just made my way through the first one without any “glitches”. I read other reviews and they seemed to be under the impression of glitches, which I haven’t encountered, if they even exist. The game looks very bright and crisp (a little boxy though), but I do feel a little unsatisfied with the cutscenes which weren’t redone. They had the time to get Sunrise to animate a new 6 minute opening for the game (which I feel wasn’t necessary), but they couldn’t touch up the now very poor looking cutscenes in the first Zone of the Enders (which all cutscenes in total might be only 20 minutes long). They could’ve; just redone them in HD, start from scratch and recreate HD cutscenes, or have a studio animate them in the same style as ANUBIS/2nd Runner, but instead they left them as is.

    2ND RUNNER:
    Thankfully, the cutscenes (non Anime) in 2nd Runner are redone in HD and 2nd Runner looks and plays beautifully in HD. I forgot how much faster Jehuty and the gameplay over ZOE.

    THE CONTENT:
    Content wise the game is also lacking, it’s barebones. ICO/Shadow of the Colossus Collection featured interviews, tech demos, and making ofs, this just has the two games and the Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demo.

    METAL GEAR RISING REVENGEANCE DEMO:
    I will say, the demo changed my general interest in MGRising into a want for the game, so it’s worth checking out. The demo installs from the disc but requires the ZOE HD Collection game disc to be in the system to play, so you can’t just borrow the ZOE Collection and install the demo to your HDD if you want to get just the demo.

    CONCLUSION:
    If you haven’t played any of the ZOE games, you should check this out, definitely starting with the first. It may not be as good as 2nd Runner, but the final climax in the first ZOE will make you appreciate what you achieve in 2nd Runner a lot more. (and the first game is only about 4 hours long)

    A great series, a sub-par HD transfer, November 2, 2012

    Having played through ZOE one, and currently playing ZOE 2 I am very surprised to find that this game slows down quite a bit during intense fighting sessions. It is apparent that High Voltage games did not capitalize on the opportunity to give themselves a good name by giving us a good HD transfer. I still love these two games, and I am still having fun playing them, but it just seems like a wasted opportunity. The cut scenes in ZOE 1 look pretty bad. The Anime scenes in ZOE 2 look pretty good.

    The Special Edition is worth the extra 20 bucks, if you’re into art books and dub step style music. I personally love both these things, so I really got my money’s worth. The art book is fantastic, and the CD has 8 tracks remixed. All 8 songs are pretty dub step like, with loud bass, and very fun build-up followed by some intense drops.

    The Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demo is VERY fun, but short. It is a difficult game, but with enough practice, I’m sure I’ll get better at it. I have, thankfully, not experienced any of the bugs that have been reported in the PS3 version of this demo.

    All in all, I think the 60 price tag is ok for this special edition. I am kind of sad that this transfer was not handled with the same seriousness as the MGS HD collection. Here’s hoping they can patch this beast.
