Due to control issues emerging from hardware that is not entirely suitable for the game’s complexity, Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D is a remake that does not, naturally, surpass the source material. Still, to anyone who has no alternative to get in touch with the Metal Gear franchise, it is certainly a must-buy. It carries an utterly flawless stealth component and level design that are both a maturation of the two stellar installments that preceded it. It has an ambitious cinematic storyline that is beautifully translated to a small screen with no visible losses and even some graphical improvements. And it covers it all with a survival ordeal that, while not as grueling as it could have been, gives the quest a lot of realism as well as character. As such, despite punctual problems, Snake Eater, in its grandeur, in its gameplay, and in its production values, still stands as one of the best implementations of stealth.
