Excerpt: There are some games that simply define not only their consoles, but their console generations as well. One of those games is Hideo Kojima's master work, Metal Gear Solid , for the Playstation. The story follows a special agent code-named "Solid Snake," assigned to infiltrate a military facility off the coast of Alaska that has been taken over by terrorists. The group in control of the island is made up of rogue members of FOXHOUND, Snake's former unit.
Excerpt: The Metal Gear is a standing tank, capable of delivering a nuclear strike at any point on Earth. Seven years after its initial destruction in the jungle of Outer Heaven, Solid Snake is recalled to action when the weapon reappears in the same jungle, in the hands of a new terrorist group. Is there a connection between this new threat and Snake's past? Is Snake even on the right side of this battle?
