"The greatest improvement ever"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Metal Gear Solid. What else can be said.

Well lets see,

Perhaps the greatest improvement is the addition of a new camera system which can only really be appreciated by those familiar with the series and the original MGS3. With the new 3rd person camera you will see things you never could in the original version, fighting multiple enemies becomes superbly easier and enhances the way you appreciate the lush enviroments.

The online mode is the draw card for Subsistence which is simply spectacular and is easier to access for those with the new slimline PS2. This option along with the bonus material included makes this worth the buy.

Highly recomended for MGS fans and especially recomended for MGS3 fans (You must check out the new camera).

5 stars"

In my honest opinion, this is the best game ever made. Firstly, you have Snake Eater, with a better camera system. That's one incredible game. You also have demo theatre, where you can watch any cutscene again.

Then, the next disc, you have Online mode. Wow, so thats like, an infinite game? Also on this disc is duel mode and Snake Vs. Monkey, which would make up one game altogether. Then you have the originals, Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 from MSX heritage. That's two extra games! My god! You also get the secret theatre, which will have you Rotflmao.

Then, if you get the limited edition, you get the game on a seperate disc as a movie.

Sheesh, lets see, thats 4 games in total+One movie+An infinite game=Possibly the best game to grace the Playstation 2, if not of all time. This game fulfills expectations and then shatters them to the ground with elagancy.

Get it now!


Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence is a massively enhanced version of MGS 3: Snake Eater. A new camera system has been incorporated allowing players to view the action from virtually any angle, and also features versions of the original Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 titles as originally created for the now defunct MSX2 format, chronicling the genesis of Metal Gear and available for the first time since their original release.

It is the new online modes that push Subsistence to its limits, however. Kojima has devised 'Sneaking Missions', 'Capture Missions', 'Rescue Missions', 'Death Matches' and 'Team Death Matches', which will allow up to eight players to battle against each other in real-time. These missions will be set within key locations from Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, and in new areas such as Small Forest, the Kill House and the Abolition Factory.

Each mode will feature up to five different mission styles settings to create varied parameters of play. For example in 'Death Matches' felled players are returned to play instantaneously after being killed, with the winner being the player with the most kills. Having selected which team to represents from Ocelot Unit, GRU or KGB, the action will offer the user full use of the control system seen in the main game, with he CQC (Close Quarters Combat) and weapons elements of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater all faithfully used. Similarly, players who accrue the best stats will be able to select major characters from the game to control, including Ocelot.

"Finally it is possible to battle with players from around the world online at Metal Gear Solid from the comfort of your own home," said Hideo Kojima. "For the online mode, the essence of Metal Gear Solid is retained, with additions of various online rules and original stages. With the continued growth of the culture of Metal Gear Solid, this new online addition, I believe will bring a new way to enjoy and experience the world. I hope fans will look forward to experiencing it."
