original title: Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty / Substance (Extended Version)

Comparison:

Censored International and Substance Re-Release Version
Region: Worldwide

Uncensored Sons of Liberty Version
Region: USA

Release: Nov 18, 2011 - Author: Bravia - Translator: Gladion
This one is a little bit difficult to explain. The original version of the game is called "Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty". Later they released an extended version which is called "Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance". Only (!) the US PS2 version of the original game (=Sons of liberty) is uncensored. Every other version worldwide seems to have the censorship. As far as we know this concerns

  • all US versions of Substance (PC, Xbox and PS2)
  • all UK versions of Sons of Liberty (PS2) and Substance (PC, Xbox and PS2)
  • all Japenese versions of Sons of Liberty and Substance
  • every other European version of Sons of Liberty and Substance





The game's content was extended a little compared to the US-variant, but also alleviated.


Extensions


  • The menu-entry "1st Time" under New Game

  • An additional difficulty level named "European Extreme".

  • The Specials-section offers a basic training mode and the abilities to view already watched cutscenes again and to refight old boss-battles at any time.

  • After beating the game the first time, Snake and Raiden are wearing sunglasses.

  • After beating the game the first time, there is a SOCOM-silencer hidden on the tanker-level.





Censoring

Blood is depicted faintly or is not visible at all any more.
