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

During the conversation between Snake and Raiden in Arsenal Gear, Snake points at his bandana and says, "Infinite ammo." This is a reference to the first Metal Gear Solid, where you received a bandana if you managed to complete the game with Meryl still alive. See more »

Goofs

On top of Federal Hall, Solidus tells Raiden that George Washington became the first US president "200 years ago today". Washington was inaugurated on April 30, 1789, but this scene takes place on the same day in 2009 - 220 years later, not 200. This is because Solidus is intentionally rounding the number down, presumably to make his dialogue flow better. See more »

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.
