Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots User Reviews

9.8

As close to perfection as any game will ever get!

The good:


> Beautiful cinematics and cutscenes

> Fantastic voice acting from the all the original actors

> Incredible music score from Harry Gregson Williams

> Endless extra content and amazing replay value

> Perfect level design to take advantage of any game style you desire

> Sophisticated and intelligent AI, enemies listen and feel for your presence

> The epic final chapter in the Metal Gear Solid saga

> My vote for 2008's Game Of The Year!

The bad:


> A bulk of the game's storyline is in past games, making it sometimes difficult to get a grasp of the game if you haven't played the originals

> Cutscene length is near movie length, although not 90 minutes worth as some people state

Summary:



Metal Gear Solid 4


Set in the near future, Metal Gear Solid 4 has several themes and messages embedded into it's story. Messages such as 'the rite of passage' are present, meaning the need to pass on ones legacy to a heir. This is the case of Big Boss and Solid Snake, who is now old and dying due to an accelerated aging process and is now referred to as 'Old' Snake. Alongside these events, Liquid Ocelot is still active. Now the head of a global Private Military Company (PMC) known as Outer Haven, he is leading them to launch an insurrection. While this is all folds out, a final faction is co...

Summary:



A LEGENDARY SOLIDER. A FINAL MISSION. THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE.

SPOILER WARNING: MY REVIEW WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS FROM THE BEGINNING.



STORY


The story in this game is incredible. It carries on from Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty where Snake is still trying to chase down his brother, Liquid trapped inside the body of Ocelot. The story follows Old Snake as he journeys through the middle east to the snowed over, Shadow Moses. For fans of the franchise, who have played from the beginning will have a trip down memory lane when Snake ventures to Shadow Moses to catch Liquid. You'll team up with old...

A fitting conclusion

The good:

Beautiful graphics. Tight, responsive controls and gameplay that has been refined from every game in the series. A real feeling of progression and evolution in the franchise. Grade A voice acting. Epic cinematics, and epic conclusions to each act.

The bad:

Cutscenes are LONG and if you are not a die-hard fan this might turn you off. You can go for an hour and a half (straight) without playing if you watch all the cutscenes. The over-the-top and confusing plot is not friendly to newcomers to the series, and even some die-hards will have trouble making sense of it. The boss characters are not as memorable or as fun as previous bosses. HIDEO KOJIMA CANNOT WRITE LOVE STORIES!

Summary:

MGS4 is the conclusion to Solid Snake's story. It is his final mission, and it is suitably epic. I won't go in to spoilers here, but suffice it to say, every act in MGS4 could stand alone as its own game. Every act has an ending that entire games wish they could have. The game just keeps getting bigger and bigger and more epic and it's almost too much to digest.

Nearly every character from the past games is given a little time to shine. All the loose ends are wrapped up in one huge, explosive adrenaline rush of a game. Let's just say that after playing this, if you didn't like Raiden in MGS2...

Old Snake, New Legend

The good:

    .The Graphics
    .The Music
    .The Gameplay
    .The CUTSCENES!
    .Ahh memories :3
    .Online!

The bad:

    .It ended

Summary:

Warning! - This review WILL HAVE SPOILERS! Nothing major, but the genius of MGS
comes in the little things that make the game amazing. If you know all of those before you start it, the game somehow
loses it's magic. Like knowing what you're getting for Christmas before Christmas Morning. =P

Before I start into this I just have a few things to say aside from the points I'm going to address. This is going to be the most glowing review I ever write, because I feel the game deserves every 10/10 and 99.9% score that it's recieveing in it's first week of life. The game is astounding, epic, astonishi...

I'm No Hero.... Never Was...

Summary:

A LEGENDARY SOLDIER. A FINAL MISSION. THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE.


Over the last decade or so, Hideo Kojima has given us one of the most unforgettable series of games that has been tied to Sony's play station consoles. From the very old Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake to the more recent Metal Gear Solid 1,2,3 and the ever so popular Portable Ops series for the PSP. Awaiting Metal Gear Solid 4, I was panicking as to wondering how Kojima could make this game different yet better than its predecessors. As fans will know the Metal Gear games offer the most in depth story lines that can compl...
