In 1963 Naked Snake, soon to be Big Boss and father a Solid Snake, infiltrates the Russian jungle to extract a Russian weapons specialist. The mission turns into a catastrophic failure when Snake's former mentor, The Boss, defects to Russia and sets a nuke. Now alone and defenseless Snake must stop The Boss and her squad of crack special ops from unleashing nuclear war!

When Snake talks with Director Granin in his office, the theme playing on the radio is the Metal Gear Solid theme. Also, the specifications he shows to Snake are of Metal Gear REX from Metal Gear Solid
(1998). There are also figurines of Metal Gear REX, Metal Gear RAY from Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
(2001) and Jehuty from Zone of the Enders
(2001) visible in the background, along with a photograph of Granin with his American friend (the grandfather of Hal Emmerich, Metal Gear REX's chief engineer in the original Metal Gear Solid). See more
The game allows you to put a round in the chamber on the Mosin Nagnt 91/30 sniper rifle. This is not possible because the gun is built to hold four in the reserve and 1 in the chamber making 5 total, but you can load six rounds in the gun. See more
After the end of World War II, the world was split into two - East and West. This marked the beginning of the era called the Cold War.
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
