Trivia

The weapons mounting of a Gekko is similar, but not identical to, the M151 Remote Weapon Station used by real-life armored vehicles. It is unclear how a Gekko's heavy weapons are restocked, since it has no obvious capacity for reloading its own weapons in the field; presumably they must withdraw once the fixed armament is depleted, though in the context of the game they have infinite ammunition. Though they are capable of carrying Dwarf Gekkos on the sides of their heads, as seen in the game's cut-scenes, this configuration is never encountered during actual game-play. See more »

Goofs

Mei Ling, when introduced as a Navy Captain, is wearing a uniform called (Navy) Winter Blues. This particular uniform was phased out by 31 December 2010. If the game takes place in 2014, the wear of this uniform is improper, especially by a senior officer. See more »

Metal Gear Solid is Art
9 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Metal Gear Solid franchise is hands down a piece of art. Perhaps one of the greatest stories I have ever experienced. This gaming franchise is the most advanced form of storytelling to date. Aristotle would be proud to see how far story and art have come. If you love stories then you have to play all three games, or at least watch the cut scenes on youtube. You would butcher some of its quality by just watching the cut scenes however. The gamers complaining about this game only complain because there just gamers not artists. Metal Gear Solid a remarkable art piece. Using both film and gaming as its medium. Think of it like a film that's as long as a novel, but you play and also watch throughout the experience. Games are around 8 hours, not 1-3 like films. Gaming is roughly a book which you get some control over as well as get to see visually on screen. If you enjoy art and story, get a PS3, Metal Gear Solid, MGS2, MGS3, MGS4 and play all of them in order. Play them on the easiest mode if you don't play games. 1 is the hardest so if you can't be it. Your option would be to get the remake version Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes on the gamecube, negative is you would have to buy a gamecube or just watch the cut scenes on youtube. Again is you love art and story you should miss this experience. It will change your life.
