Storyline

Two years after terrorists seized the nuclear facility on Shadow Moses Island, Revolver Ocelot, the sole survivor of the FOX-HOUND squad that led the terrorists, sells the plans for Metal Gear REX on the black market. Solid Snake and Otacon are now part of "Philanthropy," an independent organization dedicated to eliminating the Metal Gear variants that appear throughout the world. Acting on a semi-anonymous tip, Snake infiltrates an oil tanker sailing through New York Harbor, which is said to be carrying Metal Gear RAY, a new model developed by the US Marine Corps. However, the mission isn't as simple as Otacon and Snake predicted, and the tanker is eventually sunk by explosives. Two years later, terrorists seize the "Big Shell," an environmental cleanup facility placed over the wreckage of the tanker, and take US President James Johnson hostage.

Trivia

When, as Raiden, you are tasked to disable the C4/Semtex explosives on the Shell 1/2 connecting bridge, one of the C4 packs/control units is behind a Sons of Liberty flag. This flag is a thinly veiled reference to the First Navy Jack flag, where instead of Sons of Liberty, the writing is "Don't Tread on Me". See more »

Goofs

Every single hostage in the Shell 1 B1 Core has hands with a "white" skin color, even though many of the hostages are black. See more »

Quotes

Emma: [while behind pillar] Whew, made it. If I've made it this far, I guess it's thanks to that Raiden guy. What is the deal with him? He acts weird, he dresses pretty weird too. And I'm not sure about the way he holds my hands and things. He's easy on the eyes though, so I guess I can let that slide. But I've got my own ideas about that hair!

User Reviews

 
Most likely the best thing to hit the videogame world since Pong.

Hideo Kojima has done it again.

The fifth addition to the official Metal Gear lineup is quite definately the best. Perfect AI, powerfull voice acting by the returning David Hayter, Patrick Laine, and Christopher Fritz, a professionaly composed score, and graphics that will make you swallow your tounge.

If you cant handle good games, stay as far away from this title as possible. Metal Gear fans and newbies alike, I urge, emplore, and DEMAND that you get this game.

So basicaly, it's lookin pretty good.
