When I hear Metal Gear Solid I canít help but think of the best game in the series for me, and it wasnít Snake Eater. Now once again weíre given a new version of the game in the form of Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence, which is kind of like a replay version of Metal Gear 3.
It adds a lot of content and allows you to play through various game modes, some fans of the series will already know the kind of thing that the developers do after checking out the previous games and their Ďexpansionsí which really are getting a bit old now Ė donít crucify me on the internets, MGS fanboys! Itís an opinion.
I still like MGS and the other games, so donít mistake that last comment for someone who hates the series. In fact this Subsistence version of the game adds a heck of a lot more compared to anything else, thereís so much to cover that it might take a novel the size of War and Peace to do it.
But you want to know if itís worth your hard earned cash, and not all the gory tech spec details. So here you go.
I might have sounded negative but thatís just me, to offset the jaded gamer weíve been offered a significant chunk of goodness to add to #3 and hereís what you get for your money.
Online people, online! You can take the fight to your friends and enemies in a pretty solid multi-player that offers you a choice of game modes:
Death Match, Team Death Match, Sneaking Mission, Capture Mission, and Rescue Mission.
Death Match of course for those hardcore fans of shooting other people with guns, rockets or stabbing them with knives.
Team Death Match because thereís nothing quite like doing the above with people you know or donít.
Sneaking Mission designed for those people that prefer a stealthy approach.
Capture Mission which is a bit like CTF
Rescue Mission that kind of speaks for itself,
But thatís not all; the first disc of the game gives you a remix of the story. Hideo Kojima has not done a half assed job of it either, it is pretty impressive to see that heís retold his story with new scenes and new content, thereís even a 3rd person camera that can be panned and so on just like some of the other 3rd person games.
It is the same game, but so much better. It makes me actually play it as well, because it wonít be compatible with my previous game save Ė so I sat down and romped through this new directorís cut of the game and had a load of fun with it.
