Metal Gear Solid popularized the stealth genre and is perceived as one of the greatest PlayStation franchises of all time. Sadly, the original title has aged badly due to clunky controls and dated visuals. Although, you could argue this adds to the game’s charm and makes it stand out from the PlayStation 2 sequels. Ideally, I would love to see an official remake of Metal Gear Solid but this seems unlikely. Despite this, iRamGamer decided to tirelessly work on a fan re-master in Unreal Engine 4 and showcase the beauty of his favourite game. To mark the project’s progress, he released a number of astonishing screenshots.
The ‘Shadow Moses’ remaster looks extremely promising and I’m fascinated to see how the project unfolds. Although, given Konami’s recent behavior it wouldn’t be surprising if they demanded the remaster to cease production. The portrait of Hideo Kojima makes me chuckle and proudly illustrates who the driving force behind Metal Gear Solid was. Unfortunately, it seems that era is over and Konami is considering creating another Metal Gear Solid game without Kojima’s vision. Whether or not this will be successful is unknown, but you have to admire fans who spend so much of their free time honoring their favourite games.
