By far, this movi--err, I mean game, has some of the best cut scenes I've ever seen in a game. Kojima, the creator/director of the Metal Gear Series goes beyond delivering a traditional action shoot-em-up and offers up a truly interactive cinematic experience, with some truly original gameplay to boot.

In a sense, this game is really an "interactive movie" where parts of it, you control the character (although your actions largely have little outcome in the plot). On your first play-through, you will be immersed in the plot line and the execellent cinematic sequences. You'll find that you're often playing just to get from one cut scene to the next (there has to be well over 1.5 hours of cut scenes). 4 of my friends basically sat around and watched me beat the game in one sitting (~9 hours) just to watch the cinematic sequences.

In these cut scenes, Kojima pieces together a somewhat hokey plot-line, which is interesting, but not entirely believable (I'll let it slide ;)). What's more impressive, though, is the detail to which the cut scenes are executed; all of the sequences use high detail, in game models (not pre rendered), pretty good voice acting, and fully motion captured action. Kojima adds cinematic flare to the scenes by making creative use of camera angles and techniques like slo-mo (don't worry, none of it is cheesy) and using a pitch black screen (only audio) during a sequence when Snake has a sack over his head. In addition, Kojima introduces a few very interesting characters, most notably, The End, an expert marksman in the twilight of his life and a young hotshot, Ocelot. All in all, the cut scenes are top notch; they come together to form a truly cinematic experience, something you don't always expect from a game.

When the prologue to the game took me almost 2 hours to get through, I knew I had something special. After the explosive opening to the game, the beginning credits roll with a song entitled Snake Eater. I was surprised, thinking I had already started the game proper. But that was just the tip of the iceberg.

I think Kojima did an excellent job of creating a 60s style Metal Gear game. He mirrored the game off of James Bond, taking the beginning area, then a cool segue into the main action, including a song that has meaning to the game. The opening theme also carries into the mission and is played at several key points. Very effective.

Also in keeping with a James Bond type influence, there's the female love interest, who has a habit of exposing her bra. I found myself chuckling and thinking fondly of James Bond movies at many points in the game. I think what Kojima has done so well is construct a game that truly has a cinematic flair. Yes there are cut scenes that are long but, in comparison to MGS2, they are short and have a TON of gameplay in between. I never once found myself sitting through a boring codec call or boring cutscene wanting the action. There was enough spliced through.

In fact, toward the end, the game raises the bar on cinematic excellence, incorporating you directly into the action while at the same time making you feel like you're watching a truly awesome scene. I don't want to spoil it for those who play, but the last 1/3 of the game races to a truly exciting climax.

I am completely amazed at how well all of the new gameplay works into the game, from the camo to the food to the healing system. All of it naturally fits and the game does a good job in teaching you the basics with it.

Metal Gear Solid 3 is amazing. Everything about this game is gold. Visuals, Music, voice acting, and superb gameplay. Hideo Kujima is a Genious. I had my doublts on this after the ever so great yet dissapointing Metal Gear Solid 2 but I was wrong. Metal Gear Solid 3 proves to be one of the best games around and is one of the biggest titles of the year. Forget Grand Theft Auto and play this game! Metal Gear Solid 3 is not only one of the best games ever created but it's quiet simply the best MGS game. It has everthing you'll love from the first one and times ten mixed with steriods!

Another thing that makes the new gameplay of Metal Gear Solid 3 is the CQC and the new survival Menue which lets you eat, cure self and so on which is a great element to the MGS series. What also makes Metal Gear the best in the series is that the game is suprisingly long taking about 20 to 22 hours(It took me 18 hours)and trust me evertime you're in a new area you'll just stop and stare at the lushis graphics of the beautiful Jungle and its invorments. Metal Gear Solid 3 is also superb cause of the amazing boss battles. One of the biggest parts of the game is the Sorrow who is the coolest boss in the game(and the most mysterious). Overall Metal Gear Solid 3 proves to up the anti. So let's get to it.

Graphics:

The visuals are amazingly detailed especially in First Person mode. The tree's are very detailed some of the visuals on the water a greatly well done and even though you'll find som slow glitches it won't stop you from enjoying this superb game. The characters are very well modeld especially EVA(huba huba) and this truly deserves a star.

Sound:

The Sound is great!
