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 they're demands are not met within 24 hours. Your mission is to infiltrate the base, rescue the hostages, and kill the terrorists carrying nothing but a pair of binoculars, a pack of smokes, and bad attitude. The clock is ticking. Once again, Snake heads into battle alone.
