Trivia

The character of Raikov is a parody of Raiden from MGS2. There are numerous jokes made to the poor audience reaction and androgynous look and feel of the character. At one point of the game, Snake's balls is 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 »

Goofs

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 »

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
