Trivia

Johnny Sasaki's (the inept jail guard from the original Metal Gear Solid) grandfather appears in the game as the guard assigned to watch Naked Snake's cell during his capture. He wears a balaclava with the letter "J" written over it. See more »

Goofs

Sigint says that the enemies will not attack Snake from the back when he's wearing the Cold War camo. Actually the enemies won't attack from the front, they will attack from the back. This should be obvious anyway, because this camo depicts the Soviet flag on the front and the US flag on the back (the enemies are Russians). Also, you get this camo by defeating Volgin by stamina depletion and Volgin can only be attacked from the back. See more »

Genius, pure genius.
29 December 2004 | by (Virgina) – See all my reviews

This game is a work of art. The gameplay, the graphics, the story, the characters, are all perfectly fitted into the game. I do not own this game but i rented it, and even though i beat it in about 2 days, i still would like to own it. This game far surpasses Metal gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. In this, you play as Naked Snake (Big boss), the whole time. You have to survive in the jungle but hunting and well obviously eating. The new cure system is a very good add on in my opinion. The boss fights are amazing. One of the best being the fight with the end(A dead sniper who comes back to life to kill Snake). One of the best visually though, has to be the fury. The best way to go through this game is stealth, although you could go through it killing everyone you see, but this makes it harder and also, by doing this, a fight with a certain boss may be a bit long. A cool new feature with this game is the camoflauge. Blending in with your surroundings and waiting for the perfect time to execute CQC (close quarters combat) will make you feel very accomplished. This game does take patience in some areas, but still very worth buying. The only flaw with this game, in my opinion, was the fact that i beat it in about 2 days, but still there is about no difference between playing this game and going to the movies. Overall I give this game a 9/10.
