The story shifts back to 1964, the height of the Cold War. Naked Snake heads into Soviet territory to help the scientist Sokolov defect to the West. But due to the betrayal of Snake's mentor and mission advisor The Boss, a female soldier known as "the Mother of Special Forces", Naked Snake fails and heads back into the Soviet Union on a mission to kill The Boss... The third MGS game tells the story of men and women who struggle to remain loyal even while their fates are at the mercy of the ever changing political "scene."
I've read about this game in V.A. Playstation magazine (LT). For me this game stood for everything you could wish from a game. It has strong characters and interesting story, wonderful graphics, music and sound. Besides the main story you could just explore the different methods of combat or survival. This game has a lot to offer for those who are willing to explore and and sacrifice a day or two.
