METAL GEAR SOLID 2: SONS OF LIBERTY

Technological data on the nuclear-armed walking tank, Metal Gear, leaks onto the black market.  The legendary hero, Solid Snake, sets out in pursuit of a tanker carrying a new Metal Gear prototype. But Snake falls into a trap and is believed lost along with the tanker at the bottom of the Hudson River. Two years later, terrorists led by a man claiming to be Solid Snake seize control of the Big Shell, an oil spill cleanup facility. Responding to the crisis, the government sends Raiden, a new recruit within the special ops unit FOXHOUND, to infiltrate the Big Shell and rescue the US President as world peace hangs in the balance.

 METAL GEAR SOLID 3: SNAKE EATER

Set during the Cold War of the 60s, METAL GEAR SOLID 3: SNAKE EATER sees series hero Snake infiltrating the Soviet jungle to bring back a scientist being held against his will. Starting on the outskirts of a military base, the player must use Snake’s stealth skills along with the foliage and shade that the jungle offers as cover to infiltrate unseen. As the game progresses, old faces make unwelcome appearances and a series of terrifying boss characters must be defeated before leading up to a dramatic twist that brings Snake face to face with a key figure from his past.

 METAL GEAR SOLID: PEACE WALKER

A blend of action RPG and RTS elements, METAL GEAR SOLID: PEACE WALKER features a gripping story that unfolds through the artwork of Yoji Shinkawa and acclaimed comic book artist, Ashley Wood. The game introduces new AI Weapons – giant unmanned behemoths that Snake must overcome to complete his mission – including airborne, tank, and mobile-fortress-style enemies that can each talk and sing during battle using VOCALOID technology.  Additionally, METAL GEAR SOLID: PEACE WALKER boasts extensive multi-player elements including four-player CO-OPS (COoperative-OPerationS), and a stunning three-against-three battle, wherein six players can form teams and engage in thrilling linked battles via the Sony handheld’s Ad Hoc capabilities that extend the gameplay experience allowing players to administer medical help to colleagues, share munitions, and provide defence for each other using the Snake formation to cover blind spots.
