From the critically acclaimed director, Hideo Kojima, a new 3D experience re-imagined from one of the most popular Metal Gear Solid titles from the past, comes Metal Gear Solid 3D Snake Eater.
Despite all the hype that Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty got before its release (remember when folks waited at E3 just to watch the trailer?), we still feel that the strongest sequel that Hideo Kojima and his team worked on was Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. Taking place in an entirely different time and featuring the kind of involving stealth gameplay that fans clearly ate up, it truly set the trend for action games at the time. Since then, it’s been re-released on numerous platforms, including a Subsistence package for the PlayStation 2 and inclusion in last year’s Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for PS3 and Xbox 360. Now, Naked Snake brings his exploits to the Nintendo 3DS, and although it has its moments of frustration, he still gets the job... Read Review
During the part where Snake is locked up in a jail cell, access your radio and set the frequency to 144.75. Doing so automatically unlocks the cell door.
During the battle with The Sorrow, immediately lie down in the water. You'll eventually drown, thus prompting the Game Over screen. Instead of choosing the usual options, use the Revival Pill in your inventory; doing so skips the entire fight and allows you to continue the mission.
As soon as you start the battle with The End, save your game and quit. Go to the 3DS menu settings and change the system date to over one week in the future. When you return to the game, you'll find that The End has died of old age, allowing you to continue without fighting him.
After walking through the cave and the river at Ponizovje, you'll see a cutscene. As soon as the cutscene ends, equip your SVD sniper rifle and aim it at The End. If you shoot quickly and accurately enough, you can kill The End and skip his boss battle later on. There will be a platoon of soldiers to fight instead.
As soon as you start the fight against Volgin, equip the Raikov Mask. Volgin will then become confused, allowing you to walk right up to him and start attacking.
Once you get the Single Action Army, you can twirl it by moving the 3DS system while in FPS aiming mode. This allows you to show off Snake's skill with a revolver and distract Ocelot during your duel with him at Bolshaya Past Crevice. When you're in the open, twirl your revolver and Ocelot will respond with his own revolver tricks and commentary.
Some weapons, such as the RPG-7, take a long time to reload. To skip the extra reloading animations, just equip another weapon, and then immediately switch back.
During the cutscene in Granin's office, use the camera to pan around the room. You'll find figurines of Metal Gear REX, Metal Gear RAY, and Jehuty, which are from the previous Metal Gear Solid and Zone of the Enders games respectively.
