By R.A. McKenzie VINE VOICE on April 24, 2006
Ever since the first "Metal Gear Solid" brought stealth-gaming, cinematic storytelling, and the franchise to a new level back in 1999, this series has gotten nothing but better. This latest entry is an expanded version of "Snake Eater" (first released Nov. 2004). To all new gamers, do not let this series' long-standing reputation intimidate you. Believe me, this newest entry in the acclaimed series is one for everybody. To anybody who plays video games, this is one to check out.

For the newcomers, the "Metal Gear" games require the player to avoid enemy conflict and reach their objectives through stealth and covert tactics. The previous games took place in more industrial settings like warehouses and weapons factories. This time, lead protagonist Snake must survive the jungle using camoflouge and the utmost caution. But to as much of a stealth game as this is, it also a fierce yet poetic one. From a tense sniper battle in the jungle, to a gruesome and sadistic torture scene. From a deadly escort mission with plenty of carnage, to a one-on-one confrontation amidst white-flowered fields. It's also a pretty damn funny game sometimes. The sexual tension in this game is both alluring and shamelessly exploitve...I'll leave it at that. I must admit that I find the prologue chapter (which will take a new player about an hour to finish) to be kind of dull until its closing cutscene. But be patient, and you will be rewarded.

Playing through the other two "Metal Gear Solid" games makes the story clearer and more meaningful. However, I say with confidence that because "Metal Gear Solid 3" features a more direct plot than the cryptic second title, newcomers should get into this one fairly easily.

The first hour or so i played this game i was very disappointed. It starts off extremely slow with a boat load of boring on screen text. Heck, your 'boss' will remind you about 15x that you should use stealth to complete your mission. Yawn...

But when the prologue ends and the meat of the game begins... you are in for a treat.

Everything single part of this game is practically flawless. From the graphics, to the weapons, to the enemy design, to the voice acting, and especially the in game cut scenes.

Some of the cut scenes are so friggin entertaining that its scary. They are so good that they made a special dvd that compilies every cut scene into a feature length film!

Plus, with this special 'Subsistence' edition you will get a whole lot more than the original game. You will get two super old school Metal Gear games for the MSX console which are over 15 years old, bonus 'blopper' movies which are a joy, a light hearted monkey catching game, and more. Getting all of this bonus content for 'free' is beyond awesome.

If youre looking for an action packed, mature, brilliantly executed game than look no further. This game is all you need for pure gaming pleasure.

Metal Gear Solid 3 is the 5th game in the official Metal Gear canon , and is by far the best of them all.

This is a prequel to the series, set in 1964 and sets up a lot of the history behind the game (Big Boss's origin, formation of FOXHOUND, and why Revolver Ocelet got the name Revolver).

First off, the game is graphically beautiful. I didn't think that PS2 graphics could get much better than MGS2, but this game surpasses that by a noticeable amount. The sound is equally impressive, and the voice acting is, as usual, quite good.

The gameplay much more difficult this time through though. There's no soliton radar. No more warning when enemies are coming around the corner, from the side, etc . There are some other tools you can use, but they aren't as good, and use battery power (a limited resource that recharges when not in use). As you probably already know, camoflague is a big part of this game, but you're not the only one who uses it; your enemies are camoflagued and difficult to spot sometimes too.

This took a bit of getting used to, but adds to the feeling of the game; being cautious and stealthful instead of running full tilt until you see an enemy on the radar like in previous games.

The story, the best part of the Metal Gear series, is superb here. MGS2 got a little cheesy at the end, but this story works great. The pacing, the emotions, and almost all of the characters are done perfectly. The Cobra unit is a little over the top (though I did like The End), and Volgin borders on cartoonishly villainous, but everyone else turns out a superb performance (especially The Boss).

enjoying this game very much (until my ps2 drive died, waiting for cecha01 ps3 to arrive). If anyone wanted to know, the second camera setting makes this game so much better to play. You no longer deal with crazy camera angles, as now it is similiar to a follow cam which will make your life so much easier. Not only that but this game comes with more options. recommend over the original version.
