Trivia

At the time of the original game's release, it was not expected to get good reviews. For this reason most of the voice actors are credited under stage names. However the game was very successful and when all of those actors returned for this project, they used their real names. (Or most commonly known names) With the exception of Rob Paulsen who was not in the original game, the cast of main characters are voiced by the same actors. For the character of the Cyborg ninja, Rob was brought in as opposed to the previous game where the character was voiced by Greg Eagles who also provided the voice of the DARPA Chief. See more »

Goofs

Naomi says her grandfather was in the FBI, but later, when Master Miller mentions him, he says "her grandfather" and "her father". (this error was also present in the original Metal Gear Solid.) See more »

Quotes

Ninja: Snake, we're not tools of the government or anyone else. Fighting was the only thing... the ONLY thing I was ever good at... but at least I always fought for what I believed in

Not the perfect remake but very well done
6 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

I feel Silicon Knights really did a great job with remaking MGS. With Konami's help, they took the story and characters from MGS and added updated gameplay taken from MGS: Sons of Liberty, a new and epic soundtrack and a great graphical presentation. Also, with the help of Ryuhei Kitamura (one of Japan's most gifted directors) they've created some of the most impressive real-time cinematics in a video game ever. The most impressive involving a certain Cyborg Ninja.

The graphics are more on par with MGS2 and in some places even better. Some textures look a lot better while some look rather plain. As for character models, they all look great except for one or two, but even then they are still very decent. The voice actors who did the original are all back (and even a new one) and of excellent quality like every other MGS game. Although they changed some of the characters accents and changed one characters original va they did just as great a job as in the original. Liquid Snake sounds even better this time around. Anyways, if you like Action/Stealth games then this is exactly what you want. The original MGS single handedly created the Stealth genre and after playing The Twin Snakes, it's easy to see why they remade such a great game. With one of the best and most intriguing stories and some of the most memorable characters in a video game ever, it's very easy to recommend this game.
