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.

Goofs

During the bomb disposal mission, Pliskin mentions "the heliport on Strut H". Strut H is clearly visible from several of the connecting bridges, for example, the bridge connecting Shell 1 & Shell 2, and there is no heliport on top of it. The strut next to it (Strut I) does have a heliport, however. This was due to a modeling error. See more »

The Ultimate PS2 game
18 November 2001 | by (San Marcos, Texas) – See all my reviews

This game is by far the best PS2 game out there at the moment. The graphics are amazing, the plot is outstanding, and the attention to detail is mind-blowing. your Facial expressions change depending on the situation, the guards have a good AI, and almost every environment item can be manipulated. If you have a PS2, get this game.
