1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this guide 4 Jan 2007
By Austin
This guide is rubbish, it seems to bear no relation to the game, at least in the first few levels of which I am struggling through now. It has no chapters devoted to things like the weapons Snake finds or the animals and plants he has to discover and consume to stay healthy. There are no details of the many surgical techniques Snakes must use to heal damage. The maps are basic and uninspiring. I could go on and on but I wont. My advise to anyone wanting a Snake Eater guide is check out the Piggyback guide before buying this.

The reviewer before me obviosuly doesn't understand the point of this is an online multiplayer guide and is extremely detailed in that aspect. However it also contains a sub average single player guide. the previous reviewer should have listened to his own advise and bought the single campaign guide by bradygames. IN summary for metal gear subsistence this is the ultimate ONLINE GUIDE

1.0 out of 5 stars This guide blows 22 Mar 2006
By T. Gonzalez - Published on
I sold my strategy guide for Snake Eater thinking that this guide will cover the full game, online mode and original Metal Gear games. What a let down. Lets start with the coverage of Snake Eater: The unlockables and secrets sections has been shrunk down to half a page. There is no Kerotan (frog) map as there was in the original guide. The back of the guide even says that it has it but it doesn't. Now for the online mode: This was done well and seems to be the focus of the guide. Now for my biggest complaint. There is no coverage of the orginal Metal Gear or Metal Gear 2! They have the nerve to tell you to register the guide at their website to get coverage. I registered it and there was nothing listed! Absolutely the most half-a$$ed guide I have ever seen. I can not recommend this guide to anyone. I actually had to re-buy the original guide. This is even a terrible add-on. If you have the original guide then you have no need for this book. If you don't have the original guide, go buy the original guide. This book is useless!

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't Bother 21 April 2006
By S. Rhodes - Published on
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. The original Strategy Guide had everything you would ever want or need. This seems to be a continuation guide. It gives you the secrets that weren't previously in the official guide... but the secrets that are in the official guide aren't included here. The walkthrough is pretty much the same, just a bit more compressed. The maps, and info presented in the main walkthrough is virtually the same.

There are several things that I wish would've been included in this guide. Truly, this guide should've been an expansion of the original one. For one, they took out the Kerotan locations (though they actually do mention the reward for finding them all). The original guide was 224 pages, and this one is 160. In this case, the numbers don't lie. You won't get nearly as much information from this guide as you would the original. No indepth look on camos or face paint. This includes the new camos you can find in this game.

They have maps for online mode and all, but I find that this is the only plus the guide has really got. New secrets get a mention, but not much of an explanation.

Worst of all? No walkthrough for the original Metal Gear or for Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake. This is unforgiveable. Without a walkthrough for these two games, the guide only further becomes useless. If you want a walkthrough for Snake Eater, you might as well get the original guide. All the extra content isn't explore enough in this guide. Maps for online mode don't make a fantastic guide. A basic walkthrough also doesn't make a fantastic guide. We're interested in the new content as well as the old. And while it does a fairly good job in the original walkthrough (it's basically the same, word for word), it's compressed to fit in the pages. Also, there's no help about CQC. If you're someone who never played Snake Eater and so you invested in Subsistence, this guide isn't going to help you adjust to CQC.

So in short, you might as well get the original guide. It doesn't have the coverage of Online mode or most of the new extras, but you're really not getting that by investing in this guide either.

1.0 out of 5 stars This guide is crap, buy the Original Snake Eater guide 31 Mar 2006
By John Fourteen Six - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This guide is complete crap. Don't waste your money on this guide unless you want online maps. BUY THE ORIGINAL SNAKE EATER GUIDE. This guide does not cover details on the camo, face paints, weapons, CQC (close quarters combat), or show the locations of the kerotans.

2.0 out of 5 stars Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence 9 May 2007

The guide was missing some stuff that it said it had. It was supposed to have maps of where to find the kerotans, but didn't. It didn't even talk about most of the hidden stuff in detail. I was disappointed.
