Product Description

Product Description

Great Games and accessories for all Consoles from Gamesbuyer. Review

If any one game series encapsulates the new era of the more mature video games which have emerged since the beginning of the PlayStation era, it's Metal Gear Solid. Its complex narrative and equally complex and varied gameplay redefined the way people looked at video games and even if the immediate sequel managed to upset the delicate balance between storytelling and interaction, Metal Gear Solid 3 doesn't look likely to make the same mistake twice.

Taking a real back-to-basics approach, Snake Eater is set in the '60s and sees you controlling Solid Snake (or at least someone that looks like him--and is at least not Raiden from the MGS2) in a storyline that has yet to be fully revealed.

What we've seen of the game shows a much greater emphasis on stealth than ever before, with Snake being vastly outnumbered and appearing to spend most of his time creeping through the jungle, dropping down on guards from out of the trees and hiding in plain sight using a variety of specialised camouflage suits. The sub-title is less nonsensical than you might think as well since Snake must hunt and eat animals--including, you guessed it, our no-legged friends--to keep his stamina up.

Overall the game seems more realistic than ever before (you don't even get the enemy radar to use all the time) and should assuage those jaded by Metal Gear Solid 2's more self-indulgent moments. Snake is back, and he's never looked better... --David Jenkins

After the huge success of MGS2:sons of liberty, it seemed there was not much left to improve on. So, in the time in which we discovered that "Substance" was released instead of MGS3, Sam Fisher (Splinter Cell) thought he could cash in on the stealth genre whilst snake was missing. It seemed that Fisher had claimed the crown of stealth, as MGS3 was still not being released, now, over a year later then expected, Snake is back and stealthily Snatches the crown right off the top of Sams head without him noticing, Chaos Theory will be great no doubt but it will have to do something pretty spectacular to top Snake Eater.
No new neswflash here that Snake Eater is in the jungle, but what a jungle! The graphics are nothing short of spectacular, and the gameplay is on top form, even though i was slightly concerened with the camera at the beginning but its all great really! I will not shock you with spoilers but the new characters are truly stunning, the cut scenes are back but dont be dissapointed if your not really a cut scene person because if you dont want to watch them you dont have to, however, if you choose to skip them its your loss because they too are stunning and action packed and contain seriously useful info so why play it if your just gonna skip the plot?
I strongly advise everyone who is a fan Of MGS and steakth games to get this because there has never been such an involving game like this! I definitly think this is the best in the series! It is so different from MGS2 but still seems somewhat familiar and its great! Snake is Back and ready to make all other games look dull.

I was so psyched when I got this game that my brother actually texted me to tell me that it had arrived! This game is truly (in my oppinion) the greatest ever! And I haven't even completed it yet!!!
Firstly it has resorted more to the stealthiness of the first game and the sense of satisfaction when you get past a hard bit is enormous! This game gives itself the edge over most other "Stealth 'em ups" with its new Camo index. this shows you weather you are concealed like a needle in a hay-stack or like a bull in a china store, adn if you want to beat this game the fun (stealthy) way then you're gonna have to pay attention to this. Also the enemies aren't as stupid as in the first two where they had a vision range of about 20 feet although hiding in an expert spot camoed half way to hell and having a guard walk straight past you can make them look a bit stupid!! But fear not, for all you people that just love a shoot-out there are excellent boss fights against the "Cobra Unit" these battles will not only test you're ability to play the game but also you're brain in the way that following them and shooting wildly will get you nowhere! Also it's always fun blasting a corpse 10 feet with a high powered Shotgun or a Grenade. So, if you want intricate gameplay, a tough challenge adn 20 or so hours of pure enjoyment then you will be urging yourself to get this game!!!

Verified Purchase
By the time I finished this game, I realised that what I'd been doing wasn't "playing a game," in the conventional sense. I'd been playing a part in the most interactive movie I could ever imagine. The gameplay and everything else have been well described by other reviewers, but what was so amazing for me about this game is the deep sense of involvement you get with the characters and the storyline. You don't even realise how much, until the end arrives and the things you discover then are shattering. I felt like I'd been totally manipulated by Hideo Kojima and his band of geniuses, in the most satisfying way. When your finger is on the trigger in the field of white flowers, you'll know what I mean. Get this game.

If I was to say that this game is good then that would be the understatement of the century. This game is excellent and beats MGS1 and MGS2 by far.
Although there's no radar (meaning that you have to pay attention to your surroundings more) it gives a different angle on the game.
Instead of being in a linear, confined space it gives you an opportunaty to do things your way. Although its no GTA in terms of non-linear, it gives you a chance to choose what route you want to take, and how aggressivly you want to talkle the game. Do you opt for the grass, sneaking around, waiting for the guard to move and go for his walk; or do you down some pentazimin, pull out your sniper rifle and shoot out the enemies radios' before taking out the guards themselve; or do you just run through the scene, shooting everything in sight with your 12 gauge shotgun.
Whatever your style MGS3 is a game not to be missed. The grass moves when you brush past. Accidently step on a twig and the guards will hear. And you may see a snake slither past which, if you want pull out your hunting knife and kill it, using it to build up your stamina later. Change your camoflage to blend in with your surroundings. And with Hideo Kojima taking pops at Raiden (from MGS2) it can be quite humourous.
As with any Metal Gear game (Metal Gear[MSX/NES] Metal Gear 2:Solid Snake[MSX2] Metal Gear Solid[PS1/Gamecube{renamed Twin Snakes on Gamecube}] and Metal Gear Solid 2:Sons Of Liberty[PS2]) it has an amazing plot with some surprising twists
To sum up I would say that this is a game that should be on everyones Christmas list, Birthday list or any other present.
Whoops, time to get back to the jungle
