After releasing Metal Gear Solid 2 Sons of Liberty, a few years later Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater was born. As usual Kojima always brings revolutionary new things in the gaming world, including this third Metal Gear Solid series.
The game released by Konami Computer Entertainment Japan was released in late 2004 for the Japanese and North American versions, then early 2005 for the European and Australian versions. Despite the title having the number three, Snake Eater is actually the fifth game written and directed by Hideo Kojimathe maestro.
MGS 3 Snake Eater takes you back to 1964 (30 years before the events of the first Metal Gear game released on the NES or Famicom). The protagonist of this game is Big Boss, also known as Naked Snake. Now Big Boss is trying to help Russian rocket scientist Nikolai Stepanovich Sokolov. Unlike the previous games, instead of taking a background in an urban or urban environment, Snake Eater will take you to the jungle in the Soviet area of the 1960s.
Once again Hideo Kojima has successfully executed this third MGS series very well. Yes, even though Hideo Kojima is known as a very perfectionist creator who can even release his games for a long time. In this article, Buddygame will discuss the Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater game which is one of the best stealth action-adventure games. Follow it until it’s finished.
Metal Gear Solid 3: Plot Story: Bringing Back to Years Before
As we mentioned earlier, MGS 3 takes place before the events of the first Metal Gear in the Cold War in 1964, where a CIA agent, named Big Boss under the pseudonym Naked Snake, is sent to a forest in the Soviet Union called Tselinoyarsk. On this mission, Snake will be assigned to help a Soviet scientist named Sokolov who is secretly developing a sophisticated tank with nuclear weapons called the Shagohod.
Even though the mission goes smoothly, Snake and Sokolov face bad luck. Sokolov is captured by the Cobra Unit and Snake is seriously injured as a result of being thrown by The Boss into the abyss. A week after awakening from his wound after being poked by the region, Snake is sent back into the jungle in the Soviet area as part of Operation: Snake Eater to fulfill the promise of the United States.
MGS 3 Snake Eater continues the gameplay of the previous series. Snake is not a superhero who has super powers which to defeat his enemy you have to come to him frontally, therefore, to win the mission you have to paralyze your enemy by hiding even though Snake is equipped with many weapons.
Some New Features
Although it has gameplay that is not much different from its predecessor, MGS 3 introduces new features that have never existed. The first is camouflage. Maybe because the theme taken is forest, camouflage is the right thing. There are several shades of camouflage that you can use according to your hiding place.
Then there is a new battle system called close quarter combat or CQC which is a tactical concept that involves physical confrontation between several fighters. In addition, other features that have never existed in the previous series are the stamina meter and the wound and healing system. This game also offers a realistic impression that Snake can take food sources from nature such as animals and plants to survive.
Another aspect that becomes the most interesting of the MGS series is the graphics. This game has really cool graphics for its time. Actually, MGS 3 Snake Eater is planned to be released for PS3. Since the release of the PS3 is still long, they finally use all the capabilities of the PS2 to the fullest. Like the previous series that appeared with additional versions such as Metal Gear Solid: Integral and Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance, MGS 3 also comes with the Subsistence series.
Conclusion: Brilliant PS2 Cover
It’s not for nothing that MGS 3 gets high awards, Kojima always makes his games as perfect as possible. The scores obtained from several media are also high. But unfortunately this game was only released on PS2. But, don’t worry, you can play MGS 3 on a PS2 emulator like PCSX2.
