Did You Know?

When Meryl attacks the guard near the beginning of the game and takes his clothing off, in the Japanese version you can see the guard knocked-out in his underwear, while in the American version his 'butt' is blurred.See more »
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: When Naomi calls Snake and says "Campbell and the others are busy right now, I'm using a different codec". The player's codec reports that she's calling from the same frequency. However this still makes sense: it's possible to have several radio handsets using the same frequency.See more »

An epic masterpiece that plays exactly like a movie., 25 July 2000
Author: Jason Rasmussen from Southern California

I have been a fan of the Metal Gear series since the first one on the NES. The third installment which shows up on the PlayStation is the best so far. The game plays exactly like a movie in every single way. The voice acting is superb, and the music is movie quality.

The story line does not disappoint. It is hard hitting and nothing is watered down. This is not a kid's game (about PG-13), yet stays away from unnecessary junk. Unlike most games, this game has moral points and touches on human tragedy. The cut scenes are amazing using the PSX's engine and very rarely using FMV.

My only complaint with the game is it is too easy to guess who the bad guy is. Other than that, this game will have you on the edge of your seat.

I have never done this, but I stood up and applauded for the game after I passed it. Hideo Kojima is brilliant and I would love to see him write/direct some movies.
