FEATURED VOXPOP maca2kx Metal Gear Solid was a watershed moment in gaming for me. The graphics, at the time, were phenomenal; the story was winding and engaging; the gameplay was sharp and not above breaking the fourth wall when appropriate. It’s one of the few titles where the number of times I’ve...

Eating Made Fun

This is the best game i have ever played in my life. At first i thought it seemed a bit ordinary, but when you get a bit further in the game you'll realise just how good a tactical espionage game can get.

Metal Gear Solid 3 has THE best graphics you can find on any game on PS2, personally i think they're even better than on Halo 2. The gameplay is nearly unbeatable, first of all there's the camouflage which works perfectly and adds suspense to the game, i'm serious about it working perfectly, play the game, get an appropriate suit on, hide in the bushes and then see if someone who just walked in the room can see him. Then there's the CQC (close quarters combat) which is better than it sounds, there are so many different moves you can do that i can't even explain them all. The weapons are awsome and you shouldn't really have to worry about ammo either (unlike on resident evil 4).

I would say that the story is really good but i can't follow it, it's way too confusing, but anything that's got me scratching my head that much has to be good, so i'll take their word for it. But after finishing the game you'll feel like you were there with Snake, the game get's you so involved in everything, it's like watching a really long emotional movie that makes you want to change your life. The boss fights are also great, although it's really just shooting someone in the chest all the time, there's really no trick to it like the bosses in MGS 2, i was a bit dissapointed with that.

But who cares about the boss fights, they make up for it with every other aspect in the game. The voice acting also seems to be done really well, and the good thing is that they gave the hot blonde chick a good actor for her voice so she doesn't sound like a man. Although the kissing looks really stupid but somehow i don't think that really matters with Metal Gear Solid.

The bad part is that there is no radar this time, instead they give you a motion tracker that's more likeone of those radars they have in submarines or something. But once again that doesn't matter because if you do get spotted because of the sensor, it's easy enough to survive with the way your health regenrates by itself.

But the best part of all are the things that aren't advertised that you can only find out about if you buy the strategy guide. And you won't know what i'm talking about unless you try it, that's why i'm going to tell you the best one. ahhemm.......... when you get into the very long and frustrating fight with the end (The sniper with the stupid name), save your game, take the CD out and reset your playstation date so that it's 8 days ahead of the real date, then put the CD back in, load your game and when it loads, there will be a cut scene showing the end dying of old age because he's like 150 years old.

So just like millions of other people world wide, i'd give this game an A+ because of everything i've just explained, and there's even more.
