The version on steam is Sons of Liberty, not Substance. Also the game has not been put back up on GOG. This game should be put back up here.

It is official. This game will be back on Steam in October. Get it now while you still can!

PCGAMER90 2023-05-29 0 point

I heard this game might be relisted soon on GOG because some of the licensing issues have been resolved. So get this game while you still can!

wollg 2023-03-07 -1 point

wollg 2023-03-07 0 point

How do I download the game? The setup file keeps crashing, I closed everything, I emptied my temp folder, and my internet's fine. Someone help me, I don't want to emulate this game since the performance is gonna get worse and I don't have a good pc.

We have some Konami intruders folks. They don't want you to play MGS2. They don't want you to know that Hideo already denounced Konami gulags in that game. They are also blocking the upload of the PC version of MGS3 because there are proof of their malpractices in the code of that game.

You don't belive me? Look at the comment below me. We have already 2 infiltrators. Download the game and play it. QUICK! You must witness the beauty of PS2 graphics Quinton Flynn naked ninja kicking Genoma Soldiers! Is the only way to understand the T R U T H.




I HAVE BEEN ALBERICH, LOGE, SIEGMUND, BRÜNHILDE, SIEGFRIED... and ISH, I guess. Don't know. Ring is confusing.


And play Metal Gear Solid 2. ... Yeh.

Can you make the game available here please? I would kindly buy it on GOG, but the game was took down by Konami.

REDANC 2022-08-26 2 points

Sam 2022-08-19 2 points

Please reupload :( can't get it anymore on gog.

Senator Morbstrong 2022-06-17 3 points

So this game was removed by konami from GOG and all digital stores "temporarily" due to Licensing issue. This was in November. Its now June, its been like 7 months now. I think this game should be reuploaded onto myabandonware. Jesus thanks Konami it got uploaded to GOG for like 1 year before being taken down again. Nice work Konami realll nice.

It's not on GoG. Seems abandoned to me.

Maverick074 2022-04-13 11 points

Hey, since this game isn't listed on GoG anymore, can it be put back on here?

Donkey 2022-03-07 8 points

GOG pulled this one. Should be reuploaded here, as it has been some years now.

BeautifulDuwang 2022-01-02 14 points

Delisted from sale again, even on GOG.

konamisucks 2021-11-08 10 points

As of today, every version of Metal Gear Solid 2 (and 3) got pulled from all digital stores due to copyright issues. I don't know if it counts as abandonware now.

@Lowry65: We don't need to worry about PAL or NTSC WITH PC games ;p

Lowry65 2020-09-07 0 point

Be warned that this is the PAL version

SadSnake 2020-08-16 0 point

Bro what kind of logic is this? why are you telling me that i should buy the game on Ps3 (a console released 14 years ago) that i don't have when i'm looking for the PC version that's an actual abandonware???

HELP 2020-07-31 -1 point

since you guys uploaded Virtua Fighter 2 again (btw thanks for that) can you please upload the PC version of this too? and all PS Store games too that aren't available on PC! much appreciated.

47Pandas 2019-09-29 3 points

It is available on the PS Store, but it's for the PSVita and PS3, both of which sony, from what I understand, no longer officially supports. But this is abandonware on PC, as you cannot buy this on PC. -- you also cannot buy this on PS4/Xbox etc etc.

metalgearfan 2019-03-30 0 point

so can i download it from here??

About47Pandas 2019-01-17 13 points

This is abandonware again.

ye 2018-12-01 16 points

What kind of an idea was to remove the file from a PC game so people buy the PS3 version?!

admin 2018-11-22 -14 points

This is being sold on PS Store, not on GOG

SumOldgai 2018-11-21 9 points

The game is not available on Not sure where you got that information from. In the US here and I cannot find it on GoG. Search produces no results.
