One of, if not the best in an excellent series. The port stays faithful to
the original as released on the Playstation 2, but retains the vastly improved
camera controls from the Subsistence re-release. Was disappointed to see that
nothing (beyond the aforementioned camera) is included from Subsistence as well
as the hidden minigame “Guy Savage” and “Snake vs. Monkey” both being
omitted (though the latter's omission is understandable due to it using
elements from Ape Escape – a Sony owned franchise).
However, this is all nitpicking, as the game is pure quality through and
through and a definite “must-buy” for stealth-action fans and anyone who
appreciated Kojima's previous work.
I will be getting this day one of release and have spent literally 2 hours
playing the tiny demo released on the estore a few weeks ago. It took me about
1 hour to become completely comfortable with the controls ( Im using the Circle
Pad Pro which is flippen awesome, especially for Resident Evil revelations which
I highly recommend ) and while aiming was touchy at first, it became much more
enjoyable after sinking 1 hour into it to adjust to the controls. The 3d effect
is superb and anyone trashing the graphics can go get the HD version and be
tethered to the house/couch. I can vouch for the graphics in this iteration as
being better than the PS2 copy I clocked 7 years ago. Dont be an idiot and
miss out on this because some people rant on about the HD version being better.
Its not, it different and who gives a rats about MGS2 or peace walker for PSP-
Not me, MGS3 is the best and always will be. Sorry Kojima but the best has come
I repeat I Will be getting this Day one. Money very well spent based on my
time with the short but fantastic Demo.
Metal Gear Solid 3 is truly a magnificent game, but if you want to play it,
do yourself a favour and get the HD collection on Xbox 360, PS3 or Vita. The 3DS
version, whilst slightly improved and with fairly good 3D effects, has an
atrocious frame-rate that makes gameplay choppy at best, and ruins the fluent,
enjoyable experience of this masterpiece.
If you MUST play this on 3DS (which I don't recommend at all), then make
sure you have a Circle Pad Pro to play this game with.
This is by far my favourite MGS game and lucky me they put it on the 3ds.
Also they gave it MGS4 controls which help a lot during gameplay. Anyone new to
the Metal Gear series could also play this without missing any story of the
earlier games as it's set as a prequal to the other games
This is a great port of arguably the best Metal Gear game so far, and while
it is not perfect by any means it gives gamers a chance to experience a true
classic on the go.
I thoroughly recommend using a circle pad pro with this title, it makes
controlling the camera much more intuitive. The circle pad pro is NOT a
The 3D effect works quite well, and even enhances the game to a degree, making
it easier to judge your proximity to enemies. Graphically the game looks superb,
only let down by a less than consistent frame rate.
It is hard to recommend this game if you own a PS3 or X360 – the Metal Gear
HD collection on those platforms provide far better value for money. However if
you absolutely must have Metal Gear in portable form, then this is the way
I downloaded the demo for this the othernight and i gotta say it's a great
little demo fun but frustrating, without the circle pad your using abxy to move
the camera around and it just doesn't feel right.
However with a circle pad this game will be really enjoyable looks stunning
in 3d and without the 3d on looks good to
