    Metal Gear Online? On the PS2? Surely it's crap! I admit, I didn't think it could be pulled off very well... but I'll happily eat my words, because it's bloody brilliant.
  2. This is the best offering of gameplay, extras and multiplayer that has come out in some time.

    Improving on one of the best games ever couldn't have been an easy job, but Kojima Productions was able to do it. They packed this director's cut of "Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater", a thrilling and cinematic military stealth action game, so full of tweaks and extras, we wish our review scale went to 11. [Apr 2006, p.73]

    The amount of content spread across these three discs is truly staggering, and Persistence is a quick, pick-up-and-play online experience that offers tremendous variety. [Apr 2006, p.52]
  5. Even if this is your second, third, fourth, or even your fifth time playing the game, the new camera angle adds a lot of freshness to the single player campaign. Not just that, but the online multiplayer is really amazing and it is clearly one of the best the PS2 has yet to get on the service.
  6. With some of the highest production values seen in any game and more extras than you can shake a silenced tranquilizer gun at (all of which are on top of an amazing and improved single player game) result in a title that is easy to recommend and enjoy.

    With this new online mode, it's much easier to admit that you like Metal Gear Solid 3. [July 2006, p.93]

    One hell of a package! This masterpiece gets a 9.8 for its powerful compelling stoy, beautiful setting (jungle, mountains, flower field), One hell of a package! This masterpiece gets a 9.8 for its powerful compelling stoy, beautiful setting (jungle, mountains, flower field), timeline as the prequel to the entire metal gear series (not to mention that players get to experience metal gear 1 & 2 in the bonus disk), easter eggs (the end dying of old age, the nightmare scene when snake is in prison, & so much more), and let's not forget one of the coolest minigames out there; snake vs monkey. Make no mistake; the characters in this game are just great (obviously naked snake, the boss, the sorrow, eva, major zero, young ocelot) and a few of the bosses themselves are some of the most epic bosses in video game history that could only come from the crafted mind of gaming legend hideo kojima (the end, the sorrow, and the boss). Not as epic as sons of liberty and guns of the patriots but comes close with its powerful storytelling. Expand

    Controls are crap, Visuals look like a ps2 launch title, and the story is a cut-rate spy movie knock-off. I lent this game to three different Controls are crap, Visuals look like a ps2 launch title, and the story is a cut-rate spy movie knock-off. I lent this game to three different people who all agree that this is the worst game ever. I have played sudoku on gba and it's still better this game. Expand
