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 »

The game itself is like watching a James Bond movie...

This game has it all. Hideo Kojima has once again impressed me and as well as the other millions of people who have played his Metal Gear games. It has turned into a complete franchise. This is probably the best Metal Gear Solid game I've ever played, although I was a little disappointed about the camera overhead view, but I can understand why it was used as a specific perspective for this particular game.

Hideo is a pure genius when it comes to "Tactical Espionage Action". "Snake Eater" has the most Cinematic cut-scenes, challenging gameplay, unique storytelling, unbelievable plot twists, and as always little Easter eggs scattered around this game that you can't even describe. Simply, this game just boggles the mind. There is so much you can do. You can basically do anything in MGS 3 SE has to offer such as eating, taking good care of yourself, its just endless, From this day, I am still playing it, and from what I've played so far I can't get my hands off of it.

Btw, there is a bunch of classic moments, so much 1960's related reference, and also some James Bond movie creation reminiscent to this game it's just INSANE!!! I'm wondering why Hideo hasn't directed a Metal Gear Solid movie himself. =) Wait what am I saying? This is a movie itself! More like an interactive movie with flawless execution! =D My final words to this game is just simply a "masterpiece of a work of art."
