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.

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.

Crazy Credits

During the opening credits, molecular diagrams appear, and from the atomic symbols on those diagrams, the cast's names appear. This is a reference to "Gattaca", which used a similar technique in the opening credits (and also shares a theme of genetic engineering). See more »

Most likely the best thing to hit the videogame world since Pong.
27 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

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.
