Good Points
Awesome graphics, huge, expansive levels, camo is a good idea, nay, great idea, you get to play as Big Boss!

Bad Points
Still pretty short... bosses are very confusing as in what to do...

General Comments
I love the MGS series, so you'd think I'll give Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater a 10, right? Well, I did! And not just 'cause I love MGS, but because it's an awesome game in itself! Note, this is not for the casual gamer. It's much too complicated and difficult for someone who's just finished 'Mario Party'. But if you've played the other MGS series, or are a fan of stealth games, try it, nay, buy it! It takes place in the jungle and you have to kill animals and take their food. Later, when your stamina bar gets low, you can't aim right, your stomach is growling, and you go slower, you have to eat your food! Now, that's not a BIG part of the game, and definitely not the reason I gave it a 10, but the levels are HUGE. Some areas may be small, but compared to some other games, they're large. But what about games like Spyro? Well, their graphics aren't as nice. So, which would you prefer, large areas and bad graphics, or somewhat smaller areas with great graphics? When you begin your second mission (about 45 minutes into the game) you have no weapons, just a knife. So you have to sneak like never before. Splinter Cell? Machine guns, rocket launchers... MGS2? Even more machine guns and bigger rocked launchers... MGS3? A knife. Of course, you will pick up more weapons, Kojima (the maker of the game) isn't stupid! Then you have your camo rating. The higher it is, the harder it is for enemies to see you. You can also apply facepaint. The worst part of this game is the bosses... they are HARD! Not in "I can't beat them 'cause they kill me too fast!" but in, "I have no freaking idea how to kill these guys!" So half the time you're trying to find a way to kill them while dying 20 times. Just look it up on the internet or buy a stategy guide. I used the internet. Another small problem... once you beat the game, you really have no reason to play through it again, unless you HAVE to get all the camo, weapons, facepaint, secrets, frogs (hidden around) ect. All in all, this is a great game! But, as I said, not for someone who hates stealth or doesn't like hard and more sophisticated games.
