Trivia

The character of Raikov is a parody of Raiden from MGS2. There are numerous jokes made to the poor audience reaction as well as the androgynous look and feel of the character. At one point of the game, Snake's balls are grabbed by Volgin while disguised as Raikov; a reference to a similar scene involving Raiden and the US President in the previous game. See more »

best single player experience ever
9 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is no debating that this is one of the greatest games ever made. In my opinion, it is the best of the best. I've lost count of how many times I've beaten it. Every time I play it, I discover something new about the game play or story. It is one of those games that you can never really get tired of.

Everything about this game is incredible. The graphics, game play and enemy AI have been improved since Metal Gear Solid 2. The plot, however, is still similar to the rest of the series. From the beginning, you really feel emotionally connected with the main characters. As you play along, you fight several bosses, all of them very memorable (especially The End and The Boss). The plot goes at a perfect pace and is very compelling. I won't spoil the ending, but it has one of the most unexpected twists I've ever seen in any form of entertainment. There are twists and turns all the way through, even AFTER the credits.

The game's musical score really makes the cut scenes more emotional and the game play more enjoyable. The soundtrack is definitely something you won't want to miss.

All in all, THIS GAME ROCKS!! 10/10 If you haven't played it, or any other games in the series, you are truly missing out.
