I just finished MGS3 and wow all I can say is Metal Gear is finally back in fine form! This game is everything that part 2 should have been and more absolutely the BEST MGS ever made without question
I was slightly let down by part2 but snake eater has more than made up for it 10 fold.
Hideo Kojima has almost perfected the MGS franchise with this game.
The cutscenes are all brilliant and actually make sense this time.
I was one of the many that hated the confusing and convulated storyline of part 2 but part 3 explains and expands on everything that has been hinted on since the original 8-bit encarnations.
It even makes fun of Raiden
and yes you do get to play as the "REAL" big boss SNAKE but I wont give anymore spoilers away.
I rarely "preach" about a game or suggest it to other gamers on this board but the new Metal Gear is of such high quility in every way and FAR surpasses part 2 in all that it was lacking I just wanted to get the word out.
I did hesitate buying a new 49.99 copy at first now all I can say is it was worth every penny in my opinion.
SO IF ANY OF YOU OUT THERE HAVE EVER EVEN REMOTELY LIKE THE METAL GEAR SERIES DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND GET THIS GAME![/b]
