From the Manufacturer

Product Overview

From the critically acclaimed director, Hideo Kojima, a new 3D experience re-imagined from one of the most popular Metal Gear Solid titles from the past, comes METAL GEAR SOLID SNAKE EATER 3D.

In the aftermath of the Second World War, the world was torn in two between East and West. It was the beginning of a new era- the Cold War.

October 16, 1962. The President of the United States received word that the Soviet Union had deployed nuclear missiles in Cuba. The world trembled in fear as the prospect of nuclear war loomed ever closer. After days of tense negotiations, the Soviets finally agreed on the 28th to withdraw their missiles from Cuban soil. With the resolution of this incident, later to be known as the Cuban Missile Crisis, it seemed that humanity had survived yet another threat to its existence.

However, there was a secret condition in the deal that put an end to the crisis. Nokolai Stepanovich Sokolov, a Soviet scientist who had defected to the West, was to be sent back to the Soviet Union. The U.S. government agreed to this stipulation, and returned Sokolov back to his native land. Little did they know that Sokolov was to be the designer of a nightmarish weapon. Now, with Sokolov back in their hands, the Soviets are ready to resume its development. If this weapon is completed, it will mark the beginning of a new age of fear.

August 1964. Realizing at last the urgency of the situation, the CIA forms a plan to recapture Sokolov. They dispatch the covert FOX unit to Sokolov's research facility, located to the south of the great Soviet fortress of Groznyj Grad. Led by former SAS member Major Zero, FOX is a next-generation special-forces unit that operates both as a specialized combat group and as a covert intelligence outfit. The FOX unit's modus operandi is to send a single agent, backed by radio support from afar, into enemy territory to carry out solo sneaking missions.

August 24. A lone soldier swoops down from out of the blue. The man's code name is Naked Snake.

Features

  • 'Photo Camo' system utilizing the built-in camera technology of the hardware bringing customized stealth and camouflage options to the player. By snapping a photo in the real world, players will be able to use the same image as a camouflage pattern applied to Snake's uniform within the game.
  • Utilizing the Gyro Sensor, players will become one with Snake through specialized tilt mechanics throughout the game design. As Snake climbs trees, or traverses bridges and other environmental obstacles, players will be in danger of falling based on the balancing of the system.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the original, thoughtful remake for 3DS March 7, 2012
By B.J.S.
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Maybe I'm just a jaded oldschool gamer, but when I see a full-fledged, massive PS2 game ported so faithfully to a portable handheld, as "Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D", I come away impressed if not in awe. In fact, there are enough thoughtful additions and enhancements over the original game to call this more of a remake. Yeah there's a blurry texture here or there, and yeah there are times when I'm ruefully reminded of how inaccessible the Metal Gear Solid games tend to control (this is not a 3DS exclusive problem, trust me) -- there is even some unfortunate slowdown -- but Snake Eater's character driven cutscenes, it's fully realized jungle-sneaking gameplay and it's enthralling "what if" scenario set in real world wartime history hold up extremely well even today. There's a reason why so many MGS fans consider this the pinnacle of Konami/Hideo Kojima's venerable series, and it's not just because it sets up the rest of the entries so well. There are so many memorable scenes and characters; so much quotable quirky humor. So sophisticated is the stealth-espionage gameplay of Snake Eater that it's truly hard to go back and play the previous ones, as they now feel like mere foundational shells upon which this masterpiece was built from: Ironic when you consider that it actually comes before all the rest in the timeline.

Agent Jack, codenamed "Naked Snake" by his fellow CIA "Fox" operatives back in the States, is on a one-man mission in Soviet Russia during the 1960s Cuban Missile Crisis to secure the safety of one Russian weapons scientist and gather info on a dangerous secret weapon being developed there.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive version of Metal Gear Solid 3 December 23, 2013
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Instead of doing a typical review I will touch on some of the changes that the 3DS version of this game makes. MGS3 on 3DS offers a number of upgrades to the game. In my opinion the best upgrade is crouch-walking. It's something that was introduced in MGS4 but has now been implemented into MGS3. It makes sneaking and taking out enemies a lot more fluid and interesting as well as easier. Another good change is the menu navigation. Instead of having to pause the game to do even the slightest tasks, such as changing your camo, you can now do everything from the touch screen. This makes the game feel a lot smoother because you don't have to put a halt to the action do something relatively simple. The last upgrade I want to mention is the 3D. It's definitely worth using. This is one of those games that has multiple levels of depth depending on where you put the slider and there is a lot of range. The last point I want to make is that some people have probably noted the lack of a second analog stick on the 3DS. I was skeptical about playing this game without one but its actually not a problem at all. This isn't an action packed shooter so you're not constantly aiming at enemies with your gun and when you do the face buttons works great. All things considered I'd definitely recommend this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing. March 22, 2012
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have never played any game from the Metal Gear series, but this title apealed to me. If you've never played any of the games, I know you'll enjoy this.
There are beautiful cut scenes, a well thought out story line and FANTASTIC gameplay. Even after beating the game, it is extremely fun to replay missions. I HIGHLY reccomend this game.
Sidenote, I was slightly worried about the ESBR rating. The onely things I found... Mature, were blood (Veryy little but enough to be noticeable), language(Nothing over the top), and violence(Like I've seen in Teen rated games)

3.0 out of 5 stars That frame rate... March 26, 2014
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Okay so Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is probably the best game in the MGS series, even better than Twin Snakes. So why is this port just okay?

Well the first problem with Metal Gear Solid 3D: Snake Eater is unless you have one of those silly Circle Pad Pros, the controls are unwieldy. They use the D pad to do what the face buttons should be doing. Which is awkward and too bad because this game is actually modeled after Metal Gear Solid: Subsistence, not Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater. In Snake Eater (and also Sons of Liberty) you don't really need a second analog stick. Those games are practically top down and control very much like Metal Gear Solid did on the first PlayStation. If Konami had remade Snake Eater for the 3DS instead of Subsistence we wouldn't have needed the Circle Pad Pro at all. Who knows, they may have even been able to lock down the choppy frame rate in this version of MGS3. Which is the other problem with this 3DS port. Talk about a missed opportunity.

Those are two pretty big things holding this game back but it's still the same content with a few new Easter eggs thrown in and a create your own camouflage mode using the 3DS camera that I found to be an extremely fun and addictive feature.

4.0 out of 5 stars I like it but MGS3 has been done better before April 17, 2012
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
There have been reviews on Gamespot.com for instance that claim this is the best MGS3 ever created and I'd like to give you my personal opinion on why this is wrong. I've already played MGS3 in the HD collection for Xbox 360 and from the game demo alone I was able to see which was superior. I still bought the game because I wanted a MGS experience on my 3DS, to take with me anywhere. I recommend getting the demo which you should use to compare with this review.

Differences - Gameplay:

There isn't THAT much changed between the console version of MGS3 and MGS3D however I will go over some key differences. For one, the game gives you a constant view of the MAP on the touch screen which is very helpful. I often found that during my MGS3 play through on the console that I sometimes had difficulty figuring out where to go, this game helps alleviate that problem by giving you constant access to the map. This feature turns into a key part of game play when you factor in items such as the Motion Detector and Sonar as they display the information on your map rather than on the top screen.

When you first begin the game (after a jarring amount of cut scenes as per usual in a MGS game) you are immediately thrown into the jungle (which is where you spend most of your time) and must sneak by or dispatch enemy guards. Sneaking is just as FUN as ever, if anything it's THE best part of this game and completely makes it worth while to have MGS as a hand held. You can press yourself against walls, tap on walls to distract guards, use cardboard boxes to sneak around as well as find and equip new types of camouflage to help you blend in. The camo plays a key role in this game as it makes it harder to be identified by enemies and bosses but it does not make you invisible.
