Did You Know?


During the game you hear audio clips playing intended to be flashbacks of previous games. These are especially predominant in Shadow Moses, where the first Metal Gear Solid took place. However, the audio clips are not from the original "Metal Gear Solid" on the Playstation and PC but the re-recorded dialog from the remake "Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes" on the GameCube. This is especially noticeable since in some of the audio clips Naomi doesn't speak with an accent and the dialog was slightly altered from the original. See more »


In this game, we're told that Para-Medic, the female doctor from Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, was Dr. Clark, who Naomi mentioned several times in Metal Gear Solid. However, Naomi always referred to this person as male. This is an unfortunate translational error: the Japanese language provides many gender-neutral terms, so Clark's gender was never specified in the Japanese version of the first game. The "Metal Gear Solid Database" which Konami have released fudges this by claiming Dr. Clark was secretive, and Naomi mistakenly assumed she was male as a result. See more »

THE Greatest Game Of 2008
19 January 2009 | by (London, England, UK) – See all my reviews

This game is over the top amazing it's gameplay and graphics is so good that not even the mighty Halo 3 or Call of Duty 4 can beat.

Honestly when i first brought this game i wasn't really interested then when i opened up the first level i still wasn't that impressed until i reached the end of the first part. Then i was seriously impressed the gameplay as already said is amazing you play through stealth missions or sometimes non stealthy missions which is pretty cool.

Then you come across these killer long cutscenes which are really wicked but it's obviously like watching a movie but it's also the game's only flaw you have to watch the cutscenes to get the story otherwise you won't and their too freakin' long.

So, time to wrap up here this whole game is pure golden just the cutscenes are a pain but their still very interesting.

I'm giving this a major 10/10 very highly recommendable, just buy it play and enjoy.
