Summary

The best 2D Metal Gear game

The Good

When Hideo Kojima bumped into the Developers of Snakes Revenge on a train, he was influenced to create a real sequel to the MSX game Metal Gear, and here it is! The sequel Greatly improved on the original metal gear, with better graphics, tougher and more detailed areas to explore, as well as the ability to crawl and knock on walls. the guards also gained a wider field of vision than in the first game witch greatly increased the difficulty. Snake also gained a radar system and a array of new weapons and equipment to aid him in his mission. the game was much harder than its predecessor, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

The Bad

Nothing immediately comes to mind when trying to think of bad things about this masterpiece? I suppose the bosses where named Ridiculously funny names?

The Bottom Line

This is a GREAT game and i highly recommend you picking up a copy of MGS3 Subsistence just so you can play this masterpiece in its translated glory. i recommend it to any Metal Gear Fan or collector alike, or just a gamer who feels like having a blast from the past.
