Gramview: Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater 0

After a short but exciting game I came to the conclusion that it was worth my time. Long discussion and jokes between Metal Gear and Splinter Cell fans made me want to compare both games even more. But I was going to be impartial eventually. First of all: the story, it was a really fascinating. As I was stuck to the screen the whole time and got more curious as the game went on. A really nice story in line with former MGS's and a treat for every MGS fan. A lot of hidden truths from the series (e...

The Best in the Series 0

Metal Gear Solid 3 tells the story of the legendary Big Boss, who was sent on a solo mission to save the world from nuclear war. If you're unfamiliar with the story, you might think this Big Boss looks a lot like Solid Snake. Well, that's because it is Snake, though this is the original Snake from whom Solid Snake was cloned. This time the story is set in 1964, in a russian jungle. That's right, Snake is finally back in his own element where snakes belong. Kojima seems to have finally found a go...

It may not have been what fans wanted, but it dosn't disapoint 0

 Warning - Fucking Long! Fans were extatic when Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty was released, although there were a few things that they didn't like such as the playable character and the compliacted storyline which people are still working out today. Somthing that suprised fans was that the next Metal Gear Solid game would be taking place before Metal Gear Solid 2, infact even before Metal Gear, it would be taking place alot earlier. This wasn't what fans really were hoping for as the end ...

Reaching Full Potential 0

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is truly unlike its predecessors. The focus is taken away from stealth action and instead directed toward moving the plot and action along at a smoother pace than the previous two games in the MGS series. The dynamics of the stealth action are changed to fit appropriately with the time-period of the game – gone is the radar screen and the sneaking suit. Instead, camouflage is introduced to keep this Snake hidden in the proverbial grass. Now that the focus was ta...

Operation Snake Eater 0

The seminal example of what aesthetic expression within the videogame medium aspires to be. Gameplay: The gameplay in Snake Eater is reflective of its predecessors. Controls are basically the same as before, albeit the additions of CQC and throat-slitting. The control scheme might be quite daunting for beginners, but given the multiplicity of actions one might take, it's organized well enough, but just takes a bit of getting used to. The other major difference from previous Metal ...

Metal Gear Solid 3 Review for PS2 0

In case you've been too busy hiding in lockers to keep up on game news, Snake Eater is a prequel, taking place in 1964. So, the Snake character you play as here is not the one you're familiar with. He's sent into a remote region of Russia to try to contain a sudden nuclear menace, and things only get complicated from there. Suffice it to say that Snake Eater fills in nice chunks of the Metal Gear Solid back-story. While there are some good plot twists, Kojima wisely reigns in the high-minded met...

What would you call non-nostalgic nostalgia? 0

I'm having difficulty summing up the main theme present within myself as I play Metal Gear Solid 3. With MGS, I'd call it an experience of pure stealth action. MGS2 reflects itself as an awakening of unrealistic reality. And although a big part of me wants to call Snake Eater an event of ultimate modern day nostalgia, somehow, that doesn't sit well with me. At first I assumed it was due to the contradiction of such a phrase that included 'modern day nostalgia' but then how is that any different ...

An excellent addition to an already brilliant series 0

The Metal Gear Solid series is, and will always be, one of the most memorable and recognisable gaming franchise ever. When Hideo Kojima, the creator of Metal Gear Solid, first released the original on the Playstation 1, it was a huge success. However, this was nothing compared to the second instalment, helped a lot by the new power of the Playstation 2. ‘Sons of Liberty' took the gaming world by storm, and was considered to be a game that was near perfect. There was no arguing that ‘Snake...

Awesome game 0

A truly awesome game. You are sucked into it the moment you start playing. The game offers plenty of different choices on how best to approach the mission. Do you want to run and gun through like Rambo or prefer a more sneakier approach. You are also given plenty of options to experiment with - different camouflages, face paint, weapons - that can either make the mission easy or tough. Not only that, it is up to you on whether you would want to take down the unsuspecting guard for example or run...

Despite some flaws, it's the best in the series. 0

NOTE: This review was written by me years ago, but it's never been posted on GB, so enjoy!***************Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is quite possibly the best game in the entire series. It may not have the same impact the original MGS did back in 1998, but Snake Eater definitely excels in the areas that matter to most gamers.For starters, the infamous “Codec moments” have been reduced considerably. Even though there’s plenty of dialogue to endure in the first few hours, most of the radio ch...

Best in the series! 0

I came into Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, knowing that I would love it. I loved the original version back on the NES, and I came back to it on the PSX with Metal Gear Solid. Unfortunately, I wasn't as thrilled with MGS 2: Sons of Liberty, just because of the mediocre boss battles, confusing story near the end, and main character, Raiden, wasn't excactly the Solid Snake I have come to love. Gameplay: The gameplay isn't really the bright point of MGS 3, nor is it for any Metal Gear Solid game. ...

       Metal Gear Solid was a landmark achievement in video games when it was released back in 1998. It pretty much popularized the stealth genre we know today. Add in some amazing cinematic presentation and a complex narrative, and you've got yourself a hit. However, it's also one of those love it or hate it kind of games, and depending on what side of the fence your on, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater  is either another overrated video game or the best thing since... well, Metal Gear Solid 2. ...
