Excellent prequel that sets up the universe. The big highlight is the Boss character. More difficult than all the other in the series.

    The HD version looks astonishing. Among the best HD remakes, the direction of each scene is even better than MGS1 and 2. Kojima really sets the up the pace for the cinematic experience and implements the basis for the more open gameplay that is in MGS4.

    Whole pages can be written about the series and about this game. The thing is that this is probably the best series in video gaming and Snake Eater is up to the top with the others.

I was expecting quite a horrible experience but it didn't feel worse than the original original version. Aiming is still horrible though. (maybe even more O.o)
    Fury level was way too dark, but other than that the game looks and works properly. Plus you can still do all the stupid (and that is great)

Despite that however, everything works remarkably well on the Vita - a lot of attention has been given to the port to ensure that it does everything it's supposed to - and it does so with flying colours. While the 360/PS3 ports will remain the definitive-equal versions of MGS3, the Vita port trails behind in second, achieving a higher resolution and framerate than the original PS2 releases, as well as the joke of a 3DS port, and is a great option for playing MGS3 on the go.

    Control is horrible and tiring. You can't see anything on Vita screen cause there are only various shades of green. The camera work is awful. Hate it.
