Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence

Finally after 1 year of delays, Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence shipped!

I had ordered it way back in December 2005, expecting it to be delivered around Christmas time. However Christmas came, and went….. Then a new shipping date was set at February 2006 , and then May… and then August then again December. By this time I was seriously considering buying it from Japan.

To my surprise I logged onto Amazon, and was presented with the great news that my order had just shipped. I then procceded to sit by the post box for the rest of the day, and then I remembered that I had school. I got home and *GASP* There it was lying on the table waiting to be unwrapped. I tore off the packaging and ran upstairs with my brand new copy of Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence, and stuck disk 2 straight in my PS2.


Disk 1: Subsistence
Disk 1 of the 3 disk set contains the great game everyone knows, Metal Gear Solid 3. New features in the game are the new 3d camera instead of the fixed one, a plethora of facepaints, camo and other things to make your Snake look the best around. (Its basically the same game 😀 )

Disk 2: Persistence
Now this is where the real fun is.

  1. Online play- Play against people…. online
  2. Demo Theater- Duel against foes from the game
  3. Secrets Theater- Shhhhh….
  4. Snake Vs Monkey
  5. Metal Gear – The original version from the MSX
  6. Metal Gear 2- Again an old Metal Gear game from the MSX

As you can see, there are a lot more features than the original “Snake Eater” release.

Disk 3: Existence
It is all the cutscenes from the game made into one enormous film, I won’t give anything away, but it is the story of the game, nicely wrapped up on one disk.

Gameplay9/10 – Could Improve the camera
Graphics–  9/10 – Nothing really beats this
Enjoyment8/10 – Too many cutscenes I think
Length8/10– The game does have its “long” parts

Overall score: 9/10- Excelent game, much better than snake eater, A must have.
