User reviews

  • "A good soundtrack for a spy game" (by Pyramid Head, 15 Aug 2004) [9/10]
    Many tunes are packed with action and cool ideas. Sometimes, you will hear chorus and strong orchestra. Some tunes are very similiar, but it's not a big minus.

  • "Watch out for Snake!" (by Darth Nefelim, 6 Sep 2004) [6/10]
    A great soundtrack for espionage game, but some tracks a really boring. Charming vocal during the end song and overall tension - here are its advantages.

  • "THIEFS!!!" (by Darth Nefelim, 6 Sep 2004) [6/10]
    Oh, yeah... I just forgot one more thing.
    Did you known that "Metal Gear Solid Main Theme" *WAS STOLEN* from soviet classic composer G. Sviridov? Just try his composition "Troyka" (written in 1951) and you'll be *VERY* surprised by Konami's impudence! Shame on you, guys! You could just say a few words of respect...
