Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes (2004)
"Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes" is a remake of "Metal Gear Solid." "Metal Gear Solid" follows Solid Snake, a soldier who infiltrates a nuclear weapons facility to neutralize the terrorist threat from FOXHOUND, a renegade special forces unit. Snake must liberate two hostages, the head of DARPA and the president of a major arms manufacturer, confront the terrorists, and stop them from launching a nuclear strike.
The story is set between February 21 and 27, 2005, six years after the events of "Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake," and 10 years after the events of the original "Metal Gear." A genetically enhanced, renegade special forces unit, FOXHOUND, leads an armed uprising on a remote island in Alaska's Fox Archipelago. This island, codenamed "Shadow Moses", is the site of a nuclear weapons disposal facility. The forces that seized this island, led by a mercenary known as Liquid Snake, have acquired the nuclear-capable mecha, Metal Gear REX, and are threatening the U.S government with a nuclear reprisal if they do not receive the remains of the "legendary mercenary" Big Boss within 24 hours. Solid Snake is forced out of retirement and is dispatched at the request of Colonel Roy Campbell to penetrate the terrorists' defenses and neutralize the threat. ...
Did You Know? Ryuhei Kitamura created many of the cut scenes to look almost identical to the ones in (1998) "Metal Gear Solid." Hideo Kojima had him redo them, to make sure that they would all be in Kitamura's own style (thus keeping up the concept that "Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes" would be a complete "re-imagination" of Metal Gear Solid).
