Game description:
Terrorists have seized control of Alaska's Shadow Moses Island nuclear disposal facility. Led by members of FOXHOUND, the Next Generation Special Forces are demanding that the government turn over the remains of Big Boss. If their demands are not met within 24 hours, they're threatening to detonate a nuclear device. Unwilling to negotiate with terrorists, the government turns to its best man: the legendary Special Forces veteran Solid Snake. It's up to Snake alone to infiltrate the base, free VIP hostages, and end the nuclear threat--but not everything on Shadow Moses Island is as it seems.

Come March, Nintendo gamers will experience Metal Gear Solid in all its GCN glory. Under the guidance of Konami's Hideo Kojima and Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto, Nintendo's exclusive second-party developer, Silicon Knights, has worked with Konami to create Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes; a revamped remake of the beloved original Metal Gear Solid. Prior to working on Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes, Silicon Knights developed last year's award-winning GCN game, Eternal Darkness. The result of this dream team match up is a game that improves upon every aspect of the Playstation game while retaining the spirit of the beloved original. In fewer words, Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes borders on Metal Gear perfection.

Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes combines the thrilling story of the original Metal Gear Solid game with the jaw-dropping graphics and unparalleled gameplay found in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. The changes to the original Metal Gear Solid range from the subtle to the substantial--and all of them make the game well worth playing, even for those that mastered the original. The graphics are the most easily recognizable change--the brilliantly-designed characters and environments leap off the screen with some of the best visuals yet seen on the GCN. The Twin Snakes also features highly-immersive audio--perfect for the game's intense stealth sequences.

In addition to huge visual and audio improvements, the developers have incorporated all of the best gameplay advances found in Metal Gear Solid 2, including first-person view shooting, hiding in lockers and a wide-variety of special attacks and moves. Nearly all of the original cut scenes have been redone, giving hardcore Metal Gear Solid fans a wealth of new cinematics.

The stunning next-generation graphics, epic storyline and unmatched stealth/action gameplay designed specifically for mature gamers make Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes one of the year's most hotly anticipated GCN titles.
