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.
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.Read more ›

Its was a fun game on the PS2 and 3DS. My only gripe was that it had a tilt 3DS feature that made it impossible to lay in bed and play it. Aside from that, it was a fun game.Published 23 hours ago by Robert B.
I knew this would happen, I even recorded unboxing it. The case didn't have a game cartridge in it. I am beyond frustrated right now.Published 20 days ago by Amazon Customer
Although the game is fantastic and I love playing it, it has some serious issues. The controls are strange enough on a console, but they're absolutely absurd on a 3DS. Read morePublished 24 days ago by Jake

I am kind of an oddball when it comes to this specific title. Common knowledge says that the framerate (which is rather abysmal) keeps this from being the definitive version, but I... Read morePublished 3 months ago by Jon Rasmussen
