Is it possible to give a game an 11? If so, this would be the game that would merit that score. Metal Gear
Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is a title that exceeds all of the hype that was attached to the title.
Buy this game. I don't care if the gameplay in the past titles didn't appeal to you, I don't care if long cutscenes
scare you, and I don't care if you're broke. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is the best reason to own a
PlayStation 3 thus far.
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is the most technically stunning video game ever made.
"Quite Possibly The Greatest Video Game Ever Made"
"gamers should be eternally grateful that such a game exists"
To finally see Snake go is certainly a sad time. As a closing to an epic series, this is the fan service we all dreamed of.
As a game on its own, it's stunning in its own right. Ignore the naysayers who claim the story is dull and tedious, they're just
fools. Metal Gear Solid 4 is simply fantastic.
"When you finish MGS 4 you're at a complete loss for words. Emotions run high and you breathe a sigh of relief that this
saga is finally over, happy and content at the closure, but also somewhat sad that this is indeed the end, a sense of longing
immediately ensues. And at the end of such a mesmerizing experience, I really am not sure how to begin this review.
Some will wonder why an Xbox 360 dedicated site such as ourselves has a PS3 review nestled within its hallowed
pages. Better yet, one that is reportedly THE PS3's pinnacle game for Sony's "ultimate" gaming system. The reason
is a simple one really. We here at XboxOZ360-game/x360.com.au are first and foremost gamers and as such, prefer
'games' over fanboyism any day.
In my opinion, this has been the best game out since Zelda Ocarina of Time, it's truly revolutionary, and its
cinematic game play and storyline carry this game to the number one position on the podium.
The auteur theory: a notion in film criticism that certain directors can truly be considered the authors of their work,
collaborators be damned. I believe in it, and feel that Hideo Kojima is gaming's first and only auteur. If I ever had any doubts,
MGS4 has dispelled them. His stamp is palpable in every pixel.
Even if for that reason alone, there is no missing Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. It is one of the most significant
milestones in video game history.
A Happy Marriage Of Art & Technology: Metal Gear Solid 4 is without a doubt the best looking PlayStation 3 game yet. A
masterstroke of high quality art direction and technical prowess make it a feast for the eyes. Characters are modeled and animated
beautifully, and the game's varied environments are expertly crafted. The attention to detail is simply stunning, with some of MGS4's
clever product placement seemingly getting extra care. The frame rate may not be ideal, but given what's happening on
screen, it's hard to quibble.
