Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater came out in 2005 and as always with MGS games came with a lot of hype and anticipation. In my opinion it lived up to the hype and was a great game. Now itís making a come back in Ďtheí definitive version of MGS3.
Subsistence comes in 3 parts;
Disc 1: Subsistence is the game that was released in 2005; ĎSnake Eaterí but with one big difference. Changing from the somewhat restrictive fixed cameras of the original release is the all new ĎThird Person Cameraí (that will be used in MGS4) which makes the game seem new and fresh and makes you wonder how you ever played it using the old camera system. The old fixed camera is still available and can be changed back and forward with one click of the right analog stick. For those of you who donít know MGS3 is set in the 1960s and has Snake sneaking through jungles to save a soviet scientist who wants to defect to the United States. Check out our review of the original MGS3 for all the details because apart from the new camera itís the same game (it makes it that little bit better though). Subsistence doesnít detect original MGS3 saves so youíll have to start a new game which is great to experience the epic that is MGS3 all over again (if you played it originally that is).
The game looks fantastic even by todayís standards and is probably the best looking PS2 game there is. Brilliant animations and high detailed characters make the action packed cut scenes a joy to watch.
Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence is the ultimate MGS experience so far and is definitely worth a repurchase if you have an online enabled PS2. I completed it when it was originally released and Iím still playing this release. Bring on MGS4 I say. And if you havenít played MGS3 yet, then buy this now.
