Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

Synopsis

Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater Cover

Released in 2004, MGS3: Snake Eater turned back the clock to the very beginning, the very mythos of the Metal Gear Solid series.

In 1964, the world stands on the precipice of all-out nuclear holocaust. The world's only hope lies in the hands of a man with the codename of "Naked Snake" - the future genetic father of the series' main protagonist, Solid Snake. Metal Gear Solid 3 depicts the rise and fall of Naked Snake, his mission to infilitrate Tselinoyarsk, and his eventual transition into Big Boss.
