I honestly dont know where to start. ok well first off the story is so good that it can make you cry at the end.the sound is literaly flawless, the graphics will make you think your playin a 360 game on your ps2, the gameplay is so satisfying and fun that you wont put the controller down for weeks if you dont get this your ps2 library will never be with its best game, GET IT. ok that was for the people who, only god knows why, didnt play the original snake eater. now for the people who are wondering if subsistance's improvments are worth a second buy, and yes, yes they are. the new camera should sielence people who arent good enough for the origanal camera, and the new face paints are hilarious. the secret theatre is one of my fav editions. now theres also the two original metal gears from the nes(one never relesed in america) which can be nastolgic to some and of course online play. this has a rep of bein to dificult but if your a vet at the single player its not that steep, unless your playin with other vets. so please at 30 bucks how could ya not get it, first time or second(maybe third) time around.MUST BUY it really is my top game of all time.
