Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is perhaps my favourite of all Metal Gear Games. So naturally, I had to have the soundtrack.
When I got it I was amazed at the amount of tracks it came with! Pretty much every track is on there. One thing I listen to time and again is those cool healing tracks.
But I was slightly disappointed by something...
With every track on every other Metal Gear soundtrack what you hear in the game is exactly what they put on the disc, no messing around. But why oh why they decided to alter some of the tracks for the Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater Soundtrack is beyond me. Take Track 5 on disc 1 for example: they have taken that great 'Caution Phase' music from the outdoor segments of the game, and mixed just 50 seconds of it up with other pieces -why???
I suppose it's just me being fussy, but I like my tracks pure.
However, it is still one heck of a soundtrack and definitely recommend it if you're a die-hard Metal Gear fan like myself!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice 7 Mar 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Harry Gregson-Williams has done it again, first with MGS2 and now this. Harry and the other talented artists have given it that feel of MGS. The 43 tracks that are found in the game are all well done, its the little things that I feel that bring the music alive and shout out "This is MGS music!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good music 18 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
I buyed this soundtrack 6 days before MGS3 got released in Denmark and it's one hell of a soundtrack the music is very good but there are two numbers that arént on the soundtrack and that's the Alert and Envasion music but the dosént matter to me since i downloaded the Alert and Envasion music.
It's a good soundtrack and i remmonced anyone to buy this soundtrack but be aware this Soundtrack is from Japan so you can't use the special camoflage disc for the USA or UK version of MGS3

5.0 out of 5 stars Harry Gregson-Williams Turns This Game Into A Cinematic Experience 3 Oct 2005
By Kaya Savas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I am a huge Metal Gear Solid fan, and when I heard that Harry Gregson-Williams would be joining in to compose the second game I got so excited, and was even more excited when he stayed for #3. Hans Zimmer is my favorite composer of all time, and I absolutely love every composer that comes out of Media Ventures. Williams keeps the feel of the original soundtrack, but adds his trademark techno spin to it. Fans will recognize the same style in Spy Game, Phonebooth, and The Rundown. The game becomes a film all because of the amazing talents of Williams. It's also interesting that he composed all the music solely based on Hideo Kojimas descriptions of atmosphere and actions. Usually scores are composed when a finished film has been presented to the composer, here Williams worked only off of sketches and writings. But the price here on Amazon is very high, at GKWorld they sell it for 13 dollars brand new.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing. Nothing more said. 1 May 2005
By TheEh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This was absolutely outstanding. I have been a fan of Metal Gear Solid since I first bought a PlayStation 1 off a friend, and he gave me MGS1 with it. I was hooked. I loved the strategy, I loved the realism, and most of all, I loved the music.

I'm still stuck with a PlayStation 1, so theres no chance in me playing MGS3, but what I can do is listen to the soundtrack. And I gotta tell you, its extremely powerful. I love the Metal Gear Solid Theme, not just this one, but the ones from MGS1 and MGS2 just as much. Amazing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Nice... 8 Mar 2005
By Shyrsatr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Awesome Soundtrack with a lot of variety. The first two songs alone make the entire thing worth it. Snake Eater(the theme song) is wonderfully sung and gives of the James Bond feeling that suits the game so well. The entire soundtrack goes perfectly with the game and there are a few tracks that you might feel chilling out too.

I get such an adrenaline rush when I listen to "METAL GEAR SOLID" Main Theme (METAL GEAR SOLID 3 Version), Clash With Evil Personified, Sidecar - Escape From The Fortress, among many others.

One of my favorite songs in this is Old Metal Gear, which brings back good feelings from way back.

The ending Song "Way To Fall" is also well done, it's very emotional and is comforting to listen to.

I say if you're a fan of the Metal Gear Solid series then you should definitely get this soundtrack and if you have Metal Gear Solid 3, you'll also find that it comes with a free(though useless) camo that is put in the CD. Highly Recommended.

Keeps with the theme of the game, and the music is very good. Reminds me a bit of the work the RZA did in the Kill Bill Volume I soundtrack. I highly recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular video game soundtrack 7 Mar 2008
By M. Azar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After buying "Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence" early in 2007, I was treated to one of the best gaming experiences in recent times. There was one aspect of it that stood out to me: the music. The music was emotional, engaging and not just a little bit movie-like in quality.

Deciding that I wanted to be able to listen to the songs over and over again, I bought the soundtrack to Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (which is essentially the same game, just without extra features) in June.


My impressions didn't change: the music was just as good, if not better played on CD. Harry-Gregson Williams and Norihiko Hibino are the main composers here, with a few vocal tracks done by artists either hired exclusively for the game, or licensed (such as Starsailor who did "Way to Fall").

Mr. Williams composed most of the dramatic non-battle music, including "Virtuous Mission". It's a rousing military piece and, along with the introduction of Naked Snake, sets the theme for the rest of the story. "KGB vs GRU" is one of the tracks that while energetic on it's own, works much better when viewed with the accompanying action. "Underground Tunnel" is haunting, mostly quiet with an intense part halfway though and manages to make the listener feel they are about to infiltrate a high danger area.

Mr. Hibino composed most of the battle music, including "On the Ground ~ Battle in the Jungle". This is played through most of the game, as Snake spends most of his time outdoors. It's my personal favorite, as it starts off slow, introduces some beats and then jumps right into a pace that uses wind instruments to really hammer in the danger of hiding ten feet away from enemy patrols. "The Fury" is a boss battle theme that, while keeping the player on edge, uses a small bit of guitar at 1:10 in a very nicely done transition. Finally, "Battle In The Base" is the fight theme used in the latter half of the game, and while it relies on remixes of prior Metal Gear music, it adds in it a bit of 60's superspy flair and flute to stand on it's own.

Both composers elevate the overall feel of Metal Gear Solid 3 from "well done video game" to "action-espionage movie".

I want to applaud series creator Hideo Kojima on choosing "Way to Fall" by Starsailor: it makes for good credits music and the lyrics match up VERY closely to the events Naked Snake experiences.

This soundtrack might be somewhat expensive on Amazon ($50) but is still an excellent buy for fans of video game and movie music as well.
