Trivia:
Yoji Shinkawa originally envisioned Meryl as a preteen girl similar to Natalie Portman's character, Matilda, in Léon: The Professional (1994). However, when Shinkawa read script and realized that Meryl wielded a Desert Eagle pistol, he couldn't imagine a young girl holding such a large gun and redesigned her as an adult.See more »

A masterpiece!!!!, 20 December 1999
Author: action-6 from Froland, Norway

Metal Gear Solid is one of the best games ever created. The graphics are revolutionary, the gameplay is excellent, the storyline is top, the gameplay relys on stealth rather than Doomish action. You are Solid Snake, a super-agent who is sent to Alaska to take out the terrorists that occupied a U.S. nuclear facility. You arrive at the dock-area, and the place is crowded with armed guards. You sneak your way past them. If you try to kill them, there is a good chance that you`ll be killed. Brilliant! The storyline is very good and borrows heavily from blockbuster action-movies, but this is far better than most movies. The only downside of this magnificent title, is that it is too short, but don`t refuse to buy it because of that. MGS is a massive game, that will change the way action-games are developed! 10/10
