Have you ever wanted to control the outcome of a movie? If so, then MGS3 is your chance to play the lead role in an amazing interactive cinematic experience. You assume the role of Solid Snake and guide him through the incredibly detailed and realistic universe that has become the staple of the Metal Gear series. Innovative camoflague techniques and a unique healing mechanism make this game certainly one-of-a-kind.

It seemlessly incorporates its storyline with the real world events of the 1960s. More importantly, you will have a genuine concern for the characters and an interest in where they came from as well as where they are going. This is the hallmark of any great story.

The Metal Gear series has always prided itself on giving its story elements a level of believability. The best part of this game is that despite the fantastic and other-worldly characteristics of the level bosses, we can still believe in their existence. Only a story executed this well can make you actually believe that a man could control hornets and use them as weapons.

The Good: Everything from the storyline to the dramatic musical score and voicework and the character movement is executed to perfection. MGS 3 pushes the PS2 to its limit and proves that a capable storyteller and dedicated game developers can immerse us completely in another world.

The Bad: The cutscenes can run a tad long - sometimes 10 minutes or more - but this adds to the overall cinematic feel of the entire experience. It truely makes you feel as if you are not just watching a movie, but controlling the pace as well.

The Ugly: The ending will make you choke up a little, so be prepared.

Folks, this is by far the best video game for the PS2 and quite possibly the best video game of all time. It incorporates everything that we have come to love and expect from a quality gaming experience. You will become completely immersed in this story and it will stay with you long after you turn off the power switch.

i've followed this game since the first one and they've progressed this game so far. i mean like 2 had another character that was a little unconventional but a very interesting twist and was quite fun to have snake on support. and with Snake Eater, this game has been brought to an entirely new level!! this game is unbelievable. the scenery and the survivalism facter is so exilerating! Tactical Espionage has gone to new heights. the boss fights and the storyline just are breathtaking. the new camouflage system is all the more exciting. and at the end of the game, seeing your rating and to see how well you act in tight situations and to see the results of your actions is just so much more of a push making you want to play it over and over again getting better, sneakier, and deadlier. overall this game will be hard to top by any other Espionage game. Splinter Cell pails in comparison to this game. and with Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots coming out for the PlayStation 3, this Saga will go down in history as one of the best Video Games ever. Hideo and his team already have to best video game of the year award. they're well on they're way.

This game is intense. This game keeps you in suspense the whole time. I would really suggest you buying this game and also the strategy guide. It helps alot. Another hint which will help in later stages is to mostly use your tranquilizer, you really want to avoid killing people. Stealth is your friend. Stealth is your friend. Very unique and orignal.
