According to Nintendo Magazine editor Steve Hogarty the framerate in the retail game remains unimproved.

For those of you who haven't played the demo, the framerate often drops below 30fps, especially during cut scenes and that's without 4x AA or 3D.

This is sad really since it doesn't got anything to do with the the system's capabilities, something I can say with confidence after playing Resident Evil: Revelations,
a game which doesn't always takes place in small environments, or with small numbers of enemies displayed as many seems to think
and no I'm not talking about the mountain area.

On the bright side Snake's face has higher polygons than the original. The environment however has a slight lower polygon count, obviously the 3DS is much more capable.

It's lazy remake or they didn't spend enough time on it, I don't know whether the 3DS is port friendly as it's not a powerful system so unless games are built from scratch they won't be able to show the system capabilities.

Yeah, the demo was really... stuttering :( I don't care that much though... This isn't my type of game at all, but it's sad for those who were looking forward to this!

No idea why people would get this if they have a PS3/360 anyway.
I'd personally prefer playing on handheld if possible, as I don't spend much time playing my consoles. Demo was unimpressive, but I'll likely end up getting this anyway.

Well, if you do plan on getting it soon, Amazon.com is having an offer for pre-ordering that when you buy it, it comes with a $10 credit bonus offer towards other Amazon.com purchases.

edit

About the frame rates. Are we comparing the frame rate issues in certain spots with the HD version, or the original PS2 game? From what I've read (since I hadn't played the original), the 3DS manages to do better in terms of frame rate than the PS2 could, but obviously can't compare to the HD versions.

So a game you'd rather pick up and play (which metal gear solid is NOT btw) vs. getting three games for the same price or cheaper.

Kojima will sure be rolling in the money.

Being in college, I dont have too much time to game, but I have some breaks between classes in which I can use a 3DS.

Than you'll be spending your breaks watching cutscenes.

*Guy walks over*

Guy: "Hey, whatcha doing there?"
You: "I'm....uh.....playing a game."
Guy: "Really? Looks more like a movie to me."
You: "Why's that?"
Guy: "You're just looking at it, doing nothing else."

Haha I guess that's one way of looking at it.

Still better than doing nothing.

I started playing MGS3 today via the HD collection and I really like it. But it's a terrible concept for a portable game due to the cutscenes and codec conversations. I had the same issue trying to play the original MGS on my PSP, in the end I deleted the game from my memory stick and just bought the game off PSN to play on my PS3.

I don't disagree that the whole presentation of the game is more suited for a console. This is more for those people who want to play the game, but don't have the noted consoles and don't plan on getting a Vita.
