Rating Summary

This is a stealth-based action game in which players assume the role of Snake, an elite soldier investigating a military presence in the jungles of Costa Rica. Players engage in various missions by sneaking past guards, incapacitating enemy soldiers with a tranquilizer gun, and performing hand-to-hand takedowns in close-quarter combat. Players can also use machine guns, pistols, and rockets to kill enemy soldiers and destroy vehicles and robots. When enemies are shot, a brief red particle effect is displayed. Black-and-white comic book-style cutscenes sometimes depict instances of torture: The central character is repeatedly shocked by electric rods; the silhouette of a tortured soldier depicts red blood dripping from his nose and mouth. Players can also engage in extra missions ("extra ops") that involve dating either a male or female character: Players can take pictures of their female dates in bikinis, touch a character's breasts, or lie on top of him or her on the beach. If players enter a cardboard box ("Love Pack"), a rustling motion and moaning sounds occur. During the course of the game, characters reference drugs in dialogue (e.g., "drug refining plant," "drug money," and "narcotics plant"); words such as "bullsh*t" and "b*tch" can also be heard.
