Trivia

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).

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 »

Simply the best
12 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is superior to all other PS2 Console games. It give you an experience like any other; the gameplay is amazing, the graphics are stunning, the storyline is cinematic, the characters are extremely likable. This game has some the most unique bosses of any other game; i think they are comparable to that of Resident Evil 4.

This game's storyline I believe is second only to the first MGS installment. But it answers pretty much every question you are left with at the end of Sons of Liberty.

The ending, if you can understand it, is the best ending of any game/movie I've ever seen. I was deeply moved, know that The Boss was simply fulfilling her duty, yet no1 would ever know that. And it was sad to think that this heorin was just going to go down as a criminal in history.

The music, again, is gripping, much like MGS2, but i think in ways, much better, Harry Gregson Williams is masterful in writing scores...i loved his work in Armageddon as well.

Simply put, gripping and graphically stunning video game...10/10
