Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 is out in the wild, and the critics are now sharing their own thoughts.

Reviews have been spread across multiple platforms so far, but they still provide a general idea of what to expect if you haven't already got hold of this new collection. So, let's get right into it:

Xbox Achievements - 7/10

"In the end, this is, for serious Metal Gear addicts, a must. It brings these games onto modern platforms and puts them in each other’s company... A comforting anthology for diehards, with some disappointing omissions, sweetened by the inclusion of certain curios."

GameSpot - 8/10

"Konami has still put together a comprehensive bundle, collecting five highly influential games (and multiple variations) from a period spanning 24 years."

Push Square - 8/10

"The Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection bundles together three of the greatest games ever made, but does so in a convoluted manner."

Nintendo Life - 7/10

"As for the overall package, there's a lot here that will keep you entertained, but the way it's been presented feels less than ideal. Still, it's a compilation well worth investigating if you're itching to play (or replay) the Metal Gear Solid saga."

VG247 - 3/5

"Having the entire main Metal Gear storyline in one package as has previously been released would have been fantastic, but as it stands, this Metal Gear Solid Master Collection (Vol 1) is the best legitimate way to play these classic games."
