The Best Metal Gear Solid Game is Now Backwards Compatible on the Xbox One

Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 are available now on Xbox One.

Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3 are both available now on Xbox One through the backwards compatibility feature. Both versions are available in HD.

According to our Best Metal Gear games list, this is your chance to play the best (and sixth best) Metal Gear Solid games in the series on a current console. Both Metal Gear games first became available on the Xbox 360 thanks to the Metal Gear Solid HD Edition bundle which combined both games for $19.99 back in 2012. Unlike the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, the 360 bundle didn't include Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

Snake? SNAKE! SNAAAA-

In our Metal Gear Solid retrospective, we ranked Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater the best in the series thanks to its "visual beauty, emotional stakes, and conclusion," particularly the final boss fight. The survival mechanic in Metal Gear Solid 3 was later re-used in Metal Gear Solid Survive. Meanwhile Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty has seen a recent resurgence in status as of late thanks to its philosophical themes. Though, philosophy alone doesn't make for a great game.

Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 joins fellow Konami HD titles like Silent Hill HD Collection and Zone of the Enders HD Collection on the Xbox One Backwards Compatible library, and is available for purchase now digitally for $19.99.
