Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

Let's pretend we don't already know about the bipedal nuke launching Metal Gear. Let's pretend Solid Snake isn't yet born. Let's pretend Big Boss isn't a villain.
For this to happen we would have to be in the 1960's, which is exactly the setting of this game.

Like other Metal Gear Solid games, Snake is dropped in to a mission alone, and he gets a call stating that this is a "Solo sneaking mission"
This sets the tone for the game.

Graphics: The graphics are amazing, especially the detail in the jungle, the guns look like they are made of metal and Snake looks like a living-breathing human being.


Sound: This is a Metal Gear Solid game, so the sound is practically flawless.

[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXdimlft8Ng&feature=related]YouTube - Metal Gear Solid 3 Music - The Fury - Sneaking[/ame]

This game is really hard.

For most people, this fight is a challenge, this dude is just really good.

Replay Value: You can, beat each boss by running down stamina to get camouflage, you can find hidden weapons, find the frogs in each room, find hidden posters. There is a hidden killing mini-game.

The only problems I really had with this game were centered around the badly positioned camera and lack of control over said camera.

All in all, this is a great game.

Re: Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

I played this and I loved every minute of it. I remember fighting The End, I actually shot his parrot with my side arm by sheer luck. This was a one in a million type of shot that I was never able to repeat.

I managed to run down his stamina, it was fun until I saved and turned off my PS2. The old man carried me back quite a while.

Re: Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

This is the best Metal Gear game ever made, and The End has to be absolutely one of the greatest boss fights of all time, that battle is 100% technique and skill, there is no luck involved. On extreme difficulty that battle can easily take an hour.

It also has one of the best endings in a game ever. Having to kill your mentor, and then finding out you've been triple crossed by everyone? No wonder Big Boss got so angry later.

I'd want this game made into a movie, but it's already a movie pretty much XD. Still, I always wonder how the boss fights and stealth sequences could be made into film =).

Re: Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

It becomes harder for The End to find you, but it is also harder for you to find him.

The cutscenes themselves could be compiled and turned into a rather long movie.

Actually it's easier to find The End without his parrot. When he falls asleep, you'll notice the "Z's" that will start to fly over his head. The parrot wakes him up when he falls asleep too long. Also when you get too close to The End, the parrot squaks and gives you away. So yeah, killing his parrot gives you an advantage.

Re: Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

Fighting The End was one of the toughest boss battles ever. It was fun and kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I remember my buddy never got past him and he ended up cheating by saving the game and then going to his playstation 2's internal clock and setting the date a couple years ahead and then The End died of old age! Kinda lame, but kinda funny in the end.
