Trivia

One of Hideo Kojima's colleagues told him about and advised him to listen to stellastarr*, but Kojima heard "Starsailor". He liked the song "Way To Fall" and chose it as an ending theme. See more »

Goofs

Para-Medic could not have seen Fistful of Dollars by the time of the game's events (late August/early September 1964), as the film premiered in Florence on 12 September. It was not released in the UK (where she states she saw it) until 1967. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Naked Snake: After the end of World War II, the world was split into two - East and West. This marked the beginning of the era called the Cold War.

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 »

amazing game
19 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

As we all know, hype is a double edged sword, and this was one of the most hyped games of the year. It does not disappoint. The game is everything I was hoping for and more. Beautiful environments, smooth gameplay, and interesting story. Of course, if you have played the demo, you will notice they throw a couple of changes in to the opening sequence. You haven't even started to play and they are messing with you mind.

The loading time is shorter, the controls are better, and the whole cure system adds a new element to the game. Also, the whole environment can either be your ally or your enemy. There are so many options on how to proceed, I am sure that many gamers will have a very different gaming experience than others.

Anyway, if you are new to the metal gear series or still reeling from the perceived disappointment of MGS2, this game will make you a true fan.

This is what Metal Gear games are supposed to be like.
