DescriptionAn unofficial sequel to the original Metal Gear for the NES. Three years has passed since the Outer Heaven incident. FOX-HOUND has gained intelligence that an unknown terrorist group has seized a remote facility containing mass-produced Metal Gear tanks, as well as a new Metal Gear prototype which was under development. The newly-promoted Lt. Solid Snake is called back into action to infiltrate the terrorists' base with the help of two FOX-HOUND rookies, former marine Nick Myer and navy intelligence agent John Turner.
The player once again assume the role of Snake. The objective is similar to the previous game, as the player must avoid any kind of visual contact (even moreso than the first game), while collecting weapons and equipment on-site. There is a greater variety of areas such as a jungle, a warehouse, a train, a couple of prisons and even a cargo ship containing the mass-produced Metal Gears. The player must also overcome new traps such as searchlights, soldiers in gyrocopters, door-sealing devices and even suicide bombers. The player must also interrogate captured enemy officers by injecting them with a truth serum to increase their rank, in addition to saving hostages like in the first game. Side-scrolling areas are also included in addition to the main overhead game, where the game takes a more action-oriented route (while still maintaining the stealth premise).

TriviaIn the original Japanese storylines, every Metal Gear game pits you against U.S. Special Forces who have become addicted to war and who decide to start a few of their own. Perhaps because that wouldn't play very well to a domestic audience, and perhaps because they were feeling creative and/or bored out of their gourds, Nintendo of America changed the storyline of the original NES Metal Gear game so that you were up against Third World, Islamic (if you read between the lines) terrorist Vermon Cataffy. Cataffy's name bears a not-coincidental resemblance to Muammar Gadaffi, the terrorist mastermind de-jour of the 70s and 80s.
Snake's Revenge, the 'unofficial' American sequel to Metal Gear, continued this trend by pitting you against Higharolla Kockamamie, which not conincidentally enough rhymes with Ayatollah Khomeini, another Islamic fellow the American public wasn't very happy with at the time.
