Did You Know?


Ryûhei Kitamura created many of the game's cut scenes to look almost identical to the ones in Metal Gear Solid (1998). Hideo Kojima had him redo them, to make sure that they would all be in Kitamura's own style (thus keeping up the concept that this game would be a complete "re-imagination" of MGS). See more »


When Gray Fox is defending Snake from Metal Gear REX, he impales the radome with his sword. While firing frantically at the radome, Fox's sword comes loose and lands at Snake's feet. As Fox is being crushed by REX, Snake runs over to his aid, leaving the sword where it is, and stays in his new position closer to REX. However, after Fox is killed, Snake looks down and the sword is still at his feet. See more »

The Classic Remake of a Classic
3 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

Having played both the original Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty - Substance and now Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes, I can safely say that this series is a high point in all the history of video gaming.

What makes The Twin Snakes so good?

Is it the over-the-top cut scenes, redirected by a genius in animation? Or maybe the new mechanics, added from the sequel? It could also be the enhanced AI, or even (and most noticeably) the improved graphics.

Well, it's all this and more.

The re-telling of the original Metal Gear Solid could have easily gone south. But when you think about the amazing company that was in charge of doing it and the experienced people involved in the project, you just know it's good - actually great.

Everything that has been changed from the original seems to have been improved for the sole purpose of showing MGS the way it was meant to be played and experienced and, in that respect, it works like nothing else. You'll quickly forget fighting the ninja and the bathroom scene of the original (for example); after you've seen them here. And the fact that enemies don't give up chasing you if you crawl inside a duct and actively try to flush you out by throwing grenades and spraying the whole area with gunfire makes the experience seem much more believable.

While it doesn't make you question everything and everyone the way Sons of Liberty did, its story is not nearly as hard to follow and proved ample room for excitement, adrenaline pumping and heart moving moments.

All in all, this is an indispensable item for anyone even remote interested in a fresh story with memorable characters and for all those Metal Gear fans that want to see Solid Snake as he was meant to be seen, from the beginning.
