Goofs

When Gray Fox is defending Snake from Metal Gear REX, he impales the radome with his sword. While firing frantically at the radome, Fox's sword comes loose and lands at Snake's feet. As Fox is being crushed by REX, Snake runs over to his aid, leaving the sword where it is, and stays in his new position closer to REX. However, after Fox is killed, Snake looks down and the sword is still at his feet. See more »

Excellent
12 March 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I played through Sons of Liberty, being disgusted with the bizarre and implausible storyline twists (they might as well have thrown in space aliens) I couldn't stop thinking to myself that a re-make of the original MGS with the graphics and gameplay of Sons of Liberty would be quite awesome.

Lo and behold, Silicon Knights and Konami team up to do just that-- with excellent results. They even address the minor problems in the first MGS (a couple spots of weak dialogue, cheesy accents, especially from Nastasha and Mei Ling). The graphics, I daresay, surpass Sons of Liberty with ease. The cinematics have been totally redone as well-- the "hallway of death" scene alone would make it equal to a rated-R movie. And there's no idiot Raiden! The only MINOR problem with Twin Snakes is the music-- it just doesn't feel as "Metal Gear" as the original music in MGS, especially for the bosses, and the main theme introduced in Sons of Liberty makes only a few minor appearances.

Minor quibbles aside, I can't help but feel that the relentless bashing done by PS2 fanboys is merely because they're bitter that it's not coming out for their system. Don't worry, MGS3 is coming soon, quit complaining and let the Gamecubers enjoy this gem in peace.
