Trivia

One of Hideo Kojima's colleagues told him about and advised him to listen to stellastarr*, but Kojima heard "Starsailor". He liked the song "Way To Fall" and chose it as an ending theme. See more »

Goofs

The gunship in the opening cut scene is incorrectly identified as a "Combat Talon". While it does have the Fulton Recovery System featured on the MC-130E Combat Talon I, in the game it is featured as a gunship, in this case the AC-130A Spectre, and said to be armed with two 20mm rotary cannons and two 40mm Bofors cannons. It also features the AC-130's Black Crow radome on the left hand side of the fuselage below the cockpit, just ahead of the crew door. The MC-130E Combat Talon I has no weapons and is not fitted as a gunship, nor would an AC-130A be capable of being pressurized (the new AC-130U is the first to have that feature). The AC-130 was not tested until 1967, and has never had the Fulton Recovery System. See more »

Crazy Credits

The title sequence doesn't appear at the beginning of the game - it appears when the Virtuous Mission ends (which is well into the game). If you save anytime after this point, the sequence will appear at the beginning the next time you play. See more »

Genius, pure genius.
29 December 2004 | by (Virgina) – See all my reviews

This game is a work of art. The gameplay, the graphics, the story, the characters, are all perfectly fitted into the game. I do not own this game but i rented it, and even though i beat it in about 2 days, i still would like to own it. This game far surpasses Metal gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. In this, you play as Naked Snake (Big boss), the whole time. You have to survive in the jungle but hunting and well obviously eating. The new cure system is a very good add on in my opinion. The boss fights are amazing. One of the best being the fight with the end(A dead sniper who comes back to life to kill Snake). One of the best visually though, has to be the fury. The best way to go through this game is stealth, although you could go through it killing everyone you see, but this makes it harder and also, by doing this, a fight with a certain boss may be a bit long. A cool new feature with this game is the camoflauge. Blending in with your surroundings and waiting for the perfect time to execute CQC (close quarters combat) will make you feel very accomplished. This game does take patience in some areas, but still very worth buying. The only flaw with this game, in my opinion, was the fact that i beat it in about 2 days, but still there is about no difference between playing this game and going to the movies. Overall I give this game a 9/10.
