Modder oct0xor released the rather excellent Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance third person mod yesterday which allows you to experience the game without the forced camera angles/perspectives. It does take a bit of getting used to, and would benefit greatly from having a first-person movement option when aiming especially with regards to boss battles. However, it does breathe a new-lease-of-life into this now aged game which originally launched on November 13th 2001 on Playstation 2. Grab the mod from – https://github.com/oct0xor/mgs2sos. Take a look at our Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance third person mod gameplay video highlighting that our playing skills have aged quite a bit considering we used to be able to complete the Tanker section in 15 minutes or less.
