[edit] Background

From the days of the PS one, this downloadable game allows you to play the classic original on your PSP handheld system or PS3 home console.

Players slip into the role of Konami hero Solid Snake and set out on a government mission to regain control of a secret nuclear weapons base from terrorists' hands. On his quest, Snake must rely heavily on stealth to avoid being seen, but he also has more than 30 different weapons and 20 different items and gadgets at his disposal, such as night vision goggles, minesweepers, explosives, gas masks, and more. An enemy radar display at the top of the screen helps pinpoint the locations of the opposing forces, both human and mechanical. Designed by Hideo Kojima.

[edit] Game Play

Infiltrate enemy territory, avoid battles, and avoid being seen. Use the weapons you find to your advantage to complete your mission. You can use a disguise to fool your enemies and you must use the weapons at your disposal to defeat the bosses as you gradually get closer and closer to finding and destroying Metal Gear. Only then will your mission be complete.

•Complex and exciting story.
