    Kojima apparently couldn't be bothered to put a single bit of effort into this game. MGS3 is a great game, but he did such a lazy half-assed job with this port that it's almost sad. Other 3DS games like Resident Evil Revelations have shown that the 3DS is capable of great graphics, but the amount of pixelation, muddy textures, and frame rate issues here is almost unforgivable, it's like he didn't even try to optimize the game for the platform in any way. This game would probably have run better without 3D as well. MGS3D is still PLAYABLE, and I understand the hurdles Kojima faced to try and utilize this game with the 3DS's unique control scheme, but no one should honestly support the shoddy workmanship that went into this.

    Snake Eater is an experience that quickly differentiated from others and we found the best of Kojima and this 3D version it's a much better option for fans of the series.

    While it has some issues it is still completely playable but some people may be turned off by the learning curve of the controls and spotty frame rate but if you are able to looks past all of that then you can still find a fun time.

    Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D is not the game's best version: it retains some flaws from the original game and adds new conversion-issues. Still, it's a good example of the series' classic gameplay.
