The game to end all games.....
24 June 2007 | by Kzgirl91See all my reviews

I first bought MGS3: Snake eater after renting it about forty times because I loved it so much. Than for my birthday last year I bought Subsistance and fell even more in love. The only thing that ever bothered me about Snake Eater was the camera but I got used to it. Then Subsistance made it the best ever. This game had one of the greatest stories of any game ever and the best replay value by far. Plus the different ways to take on a situation keep the game play fresh. The boss battle are creative with several different strategies to take them out. (Unless your one of those speed gamers who just rushes through them) With magnificent graphics,(I have an Xbox 360 and this game still impressesme) and amazing action/stealth game play, this game is truly unique. The game designers clearly worked hard to study how the guns work because there only a few errors in total. Nothing beats the feeling of taking out 8 guards with your Colt M1911A1 and get eight head shots without alerting anyone. This game is so amazing, that I can't imagine how good MGS4 will be. I'd give this game a 100/10!!!! As many say that "The Godfather" is the movie to end all movies, This game is the game to end all games.....Bravo Hideo Kojima, another masterpiece.
