Trivia

Kurt Russell was asked to voice Snake but turned the offer down. See more »

Goofs

Sigint says that the enemies will not attack Snake from the back when he's wearing the Cold War camo. Actually the enemies won't attack from the front, they will attack from the back. This should be obvious anyway, because this camo depicts the Soviet flag on the front and the US flag on the back (the enemies are Russians). Also, you get this camo by defeating Volgin by stamina depletion and Volgin can only be attacked from the back. 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
