Player One (Apr, 1992)
Possibilités d'actions très étendues, radio, armes à gogo, équipements dignes de Lee Majors... Il ne s'agit pas là d'un banal jeu de baston, mais aussi d'aventure et même de stratégie. Certes, il y a des petites choses à redire en ce qui concerne les sprites, par exemple, mais on ne va pas chipoter alors que le reste est très sympa.

Você deve se infiltrar na base inimiga para descobrir se uma sofisticada arma inimiga, a Metal Gear 1, foi mesmo destruída e, se for o caso, destrua-a.
Snake's Revenge är en värdig uppföljare till Metal Gear. Vi tror inte att ni kommer att bli besvikna. Ett Zelda i modern miljö med passerkort och fiendesoldater istället för magi och monster.
Just Games Retro (Oct 18, 2008)
It's not official Metal Gear canon, but it's better than the first NES attempt. Still, if you're really looking for retro Metal Gear, you should be playing the MSX versions. They both outshine either NES version, and the unique story here both isn't that great, and isn't that unique (you'll see parts of it echoed in Kojima's official Metal Gear 2). There's little reason to play this one anymore, but if you're interested, all I can say is that it's not as bad as you've heard.
In the end, the open world gameplay hook, quality soundtrack and the overall fun compensate for the somewhat awkward control scheme and poorly executed menu screens.

War der Vorgänger Metal Gear noch ein halbwegs gelungenes Action-Adventure, ist Snake's Revenge doch reichlich überflüssig. Konami versucht, durch einen Pseudo-Strategie-Touch spielerische Tiefe vorzugaukeln, die einfach nicht vorhanden ist. All die tollen Funksprüche und verschiedenen Waffen können nicht darüber hinwegtäuschen, daß Snake's Revenge nur der 20te Aufguß des ewig gleichen Metzelthemas ist.

Metal Gear and Snake’s Revenge are both unnaturally difficult, but in different ways. Obtuse progression and poor design limit Metal Gear, while the enemies’ superhuman strength dominates Snake’s Revenge. Better to skip ahead to Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake to play what is essentially a 2D Metal Gear Solid and the first Metal Gear game that somewhat captures Kojima’s tripped-out vision of war and humanity.
Consoles Plus (Apr, 1992)
Cela aurait pu être un bon jeu mais, au lieu de ça, Snake's Revenge est un jeu d'exploration ennuyeux et irritant.
