Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D is set in the 60s during the Cold War, and sees series hero Snake infiltrating the Russian jungle to bring back a scientist being held captive against his will. Starting on the outskirts of a military base, the player must use Snake’s stealth skills along with the foliage and shade that the jungle offers as cover to infiltrate unseen. As the game progresses, old faces make unwelcome appearances and a series of terrifying boss characters must be defeated before leading up to a dramatic twist that brings Snake face to face with a key figure from his past…
The new game springs to life in stunning 3D, with the jungle genuinely enveloping the player as they work their way through the lush setting. The game also takes full advantage of the split-screen format, enabling easier access to Snake’s inventory, which is now located below the main action. The game also supports gyro synchronization, for special actions that will draw players further into the world of MGS and for which more detail will follow shortly.
Concealing one’s self and sneaking up on guards is central to Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D, but the 3D elements make key boss battles and exploration all the more riveting. When Snake crawls along the ground, the game utilises a first-person view in which the foliage can be seen brushing past as he moves forwards. Similarly, the many creatures that inhabit the locale are not merely visual enhancements but affect gameplay and will attack if Snake is not wary. However, in a unique departure for the series, these can also be killed and stored as rations, highlighting how Snake must also overcome his surroundings while undercover on his mission…
Another addition to Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D is an all-new camouflage photography system. Within the game, Snake can alter his ensemble to match and blend in with his immediate environment and the possibilities can range from brick-coloured fatigues within buildings, to the classic camouflage khakis of the jungle. Users can now take a picture of anything, however, the extent of its effectiveness will vary depending on how well your pictures blend with Snake’s environment!

I'm a huge fan of the series and seeing Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater (3DS) in 3d is great. Although the controls are sometimes hard and the camera wanders off, it's a really nice game.

I have been after a solid game for my 3DS for some time, something i could really get stuck into and i think i may have found it! having played quite a few different MGS games i must say this one is amazing. The 3D graphics are unreal! if your after a stealth game like the good old MGS games of days gone by then this is the game for you! partnered with the circle pad pro and you've got a recipe for a beautiful relationship!

Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater (3DS) amazed me at once. It's amazing. The first thing I liked is the superb game play. For example, you need to search for food for yourself, otherwise your stamina will be on the lowest level and your recoil on weapons will be increased well. If you go with collected food too long, it will be rotten. There are so many things in this game that just can't be discovered in one walk through. You'll learn to cure different types of wounds, to choose many sorts of camouflage, and other stuff. It also has a great story with cinematographic video scenes where you learn the whole truth, not only about the main hero Snake, but about the others characters.

Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater is the greatest PS2 game and it is now improved for the 3DS. The improved visuals and added ability to sneak while crouching really make this game all the better, however it is advisable to get yourself the 'circle pad pro' accessory! This is a must have for fans of the series and for anyone interested in trying the series!

A wonderful game which is worth every penny. I played the game on the original Playstation console, but this 3D version is much better because you feel more involved in the action. One of the best uses of the 3D feature on the Nintendo 3DS.

A game with such amazing graphics and detailed artwork is very, very hard to find! I'm very happy with my purchase and I think Snake Eater one of the best titles in the Metal Gear saga!
