Happy 14th birthday to Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes! Released in North America for the Nintendo GameCube on March 9th, 2004, this collaboration between Hideo Kojima and Silicon Knights was a “remaster” (of sorts) of 1998’s Metal Gear Solid for the PlayStation, infused with play control elements from Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty.
Reception for this game is mixed. Some fans feel that it’s too over the top and a terrible take on the original game. Others prefer it to the PlayStation version.
