If you can get it cheap, it would probably be worth it. It really depends on what type of a gamer you are. Do you enjoy story/narrative driven gameplay or do you just want to shoot stuff? Are you prepared to sit through cutscenes that are 30 minutes long? The MGS games are really in a genre of their own IMO, it's hard to determine if you're going to like them until you sit down and play them.

Also, I would highly recommend playing the first Metal Gear Solid before playing MGS2 and MGS3, if possible. You'll have a really hard time following the story if you don't since they refer back to the first game a lot in MGS2. Bottom line is that the MGS games are great, but they're not for everyone.

I would say that any Metal Gear Solid game is worth at least trying.
