Metal Gear Solid vs The Twin Snakes: A Comparison Between the Original and the Remake

Among Metal Gear fans this has been a subject of much debate: how does the 2004 remake of Metal Gear Solid, called The Twin Snakes and released on the Nintendo Gamecube, compare to the original PlayStation version released in 1998? Opinions on this matter are very divided. The goal of this article is to break down the games and as unbiasedly as possible compare the different parts. (Culture, Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes)

Twin Snakes on the Gamecube is my favorite.Not because of the graphics but because of the updated controls.

that bullet time effect that The Matrix movie made so famous completely ruined the game's remake for me.

Minus the slow mow scenes with Snake it was a great remake its too bad twin snakes wasnt added to the MGS HD collection.

TTS voice acting sucked. Mei Ling and Nastasha lost their accents. Also the Matrix-like cutscenes we're an insult to the real deal IMO.

Personally, my favor goes to the original 1998 release. Metal Gear Solid as we know it was the result of Kojima and his team's intended vision based on the restrictions of platform. It's style, it's charm, and it's X-factor are all based upon the intention and innovation of the men and women involved in its production.

MGS: Twin Snakes was (at the time) a modernized re-interpretation of the game Metal Gear Solid done by Silicon Knights and cinematic director Ryuhei Kitamura. The gameplay was updated to include mechanics from Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. It's this change in gameplay mechanics that seperates the origanal game and the remake as different entities entirely. Two games with different fundamental mechanics can not be the same experience.

Based on this I take Kojima's origanal release over a 3rd parties interpretation of the origanal release. However, I do understand why a person may prefer Twin Snakes or even choose to enjoy them both. =)

The way i see it if you've never played MGS1 you owe it to yourself to play the original 1998 version but if you've already have then you shouldnt miss out on The Twin Snakes.
