About Metal Gear Solid

Players take on the role of retired Special Forces veteran Solid Snake. Terrorists have overrun a secret Alaskan weapons base and are threatening to launch a devastating nuclear strike unless their demands are met within 24 hours. Carrying nothing but a pair of binoculars and a bad attitude, the players' mission is to infiltrate the base, rescue the hostages and take out the terrorists. The clock is ticking. Once again, Snake heads into battle...alone.
