Official Playstation Magazine's Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots review is going to be published on May 16th, next Friday.
This game is looking very good. The MGO beta is a lot of fun. Although GTA4 have taken me away from it for now, but just can't wait for this game.
Its an early review plus its from PS mag so a 9.5 minimum is expected. Wouldn't rule out a 10 either since those are meaningless now
Official playstation magazine only give out scores that are whole numbers so im quessing its gonna be a 10
"Wouldn't rule out a 10 either since those are meaningless now" Maybe they will need an ELEVEN then... °o°
Exclusive reviews released a month before the actual game is released is such a ludicrous concept. I have a subscription, so I guess I'll be reading it. Unfortunately, my mag arrives about two weeks after hitting the stands, so I probably won't even get it before MGS4 comes out anyway. Whatever near perfect score MGS4 receives, my anticipation for the game will be completely unaffected.
Actually, the Playstation Official Magazine (OPM doesn't exist anymore) doesn't give out any numbers at all. they use a Star system that is broken in to halves. So, the game would probably rated a 4-1/2 stars or something
@Ashta What are you talking about, we are on about the Official Playstation Magazine UK, not the american one. The UK one uses a 1-10 scales for there reviews
Means a mustplay/system seller, not perfect. and YES, this will most likely get a 10/10, and people WILL complain it`s NOT perfect, the following week.
I'm a complete MGS fanboy. I have been anticipating this game for 3yrs constantly let down with its shifting release dates. From the other games i have watched get undeserved 10's i fully expect MGS4 to enjoy the same fate. In my eyes the game better be perfect
What people have not seen yet may surprise them. I think we will discover with the review that the game is huge providing a ton of features and gameplay. It takes more than sound and textures to fill up 50GB.
the beta really has me pumped up for the single player campaign off topic i know, but true still
I expect it to be a perfect score. Just trust me.
that's kinda early. I thought Kojima and Co. are still tweaking some things with the game. O well, can't wait for the review. I think it's gonna be reviewed very favorably.
That is very early. It's so early it makes me wonder why we all have to wait for another month to get it.
The Review copy isnt always the final copy of the game.
Mainman...I have heard that before. That is kind of stupid though, how can you give an accurate review if it's not the retail version. The same thing happened with Lost Odyssey, the reviews kept saying how horrible the frame rates were and how long the load times were but the final version did not have those problems.
The prelude to Judgment Day is coming next Friday! June 12th is a day the gaming industry will NEVER forget! 38 days until Judgment Day, Nazisoft! MWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!
Not very good when COD4, R6V2, TF2 and GTA IV all launched with broken multiplayer on PS3. Judgement Day? Yeah for the weak PSN servers... EDIT @ 1.2 - I see what you're saying because I'm still focusing on GTA IV single player but it was still nice to fire up multiplayer for a couple minutes to try it out. The product should work on day one and its not always the developers fault when it doesn't. With the track record PSN is racking up its looking more and more like Sony fault for not organizing PSN better.
@Jack Meahoffer Who on earth will play MGO on June 12th? When you have the amazing game called Metal Gear Solid 4 sitting in front of you. I'm not even going to touch MGO until i've completed MGS4, simply because i might end up going online and then someone might spoil the story for me over the headset
Look at the xBot Lemmings on this!!! ;-D Pathetic!!! 8/10??? 8.5/10??? ;-D 11/10!!! More like!!! ;-P Go away!!!And drool over your Painted pictures of Gears Of War 2!!! ;-D +I hope 'Judgment Day' is tomorrow King Kaz!!! ;-P 'PLAY&WATCH-BEYOND...xBox 360's BURNING LIMITS!!!' ;-D
I see Jack. You are another one of those dumbasses that doesn't understand how certain games work. You don't understand that Konami, not Sony run the servers for MGO. That's why there was an issue. You are on of those dumbasses that forgets the COD4 issues on Xbox Live ran all the way past Christmas, long after the PSN issues were resolved. Why? Because IW, not Sony were in charge of server administration. You can dig around at Kotaku for a good accounting of the MS issues. Next time try fact checking. You will look just a tad less ignorant if you try engaging your brain housing group before you let your fingers wander aimlessly, and some what uselessly I might add across the keyboard.
Jack...don't talk anymore. You're embarrassing yourself.
I know Sony doesn't run the servers for any game. THATS THE PROBLEM. There is no structure. Sony just lets developers do their own thing when bad results so far. See thats all you can attack me on is something totally freakin obvious. Its Sony's fault for setting up weak infastruture and its you Sony fanboys fault for defending thier screw ups at every turn. How many games have to come out with broken online before you fanboys start to realize you can't blame every single developer. Sony needs to get their act together. If the service is going to be free its still got to work. Home is another example. Over ambitious and no follow through... None of you can refute what I'm saying so just keep calling me names and making up stupid crap.
You said weak PSN servers you imbecile. You didn't say weak Konami servers. Suck it. Suck it long and suck it hard you blockhead. We are attacking you for something obvious alright...what you said is in black and white and far beyond your ability to edit now. Reap the whirlwind for your idiotic and ill informed remarks. No follow through? Who announced that Marketplace would be a store and you will be able to sell personal items like T shirts or download mods from friends? There is failing in follow through and it is MS. Sony is the one that is slowly but surely capitalizing on their vision with a plan and a machine built to last longer than a year. And I repeat, free PSN has not had half of the COD4 issues plaguing Live. So have a big hot lumpy steaming mug of STFU and start swallowing that pride. Sony has been slow but they have been careful. Obviously you prefer a rush to market idea and console. RROD anyone?
Ye it is really early for a review if its coming out in june. Thats a whole month away.
I suspect the game is near enough complete anyway, they are just holding it back until June, so sales aren't effected by GTA IV
To release two games this big at vertually the same time would just be stupid.
Already? Well, let's see it then.
1 - first review of a big game 2 - Its Metal Gear 3 - Its Metal Gear Solid 4 which hasnt had a preview that hasnt called it a masterpeice 4 - it has porn mags in it
Well OPM uk had the first PS3 version reviews of both GTA IV and COD4 and both of them got 10's, so i guess your not far off there.
Ill just buy MGS4 for the lovely mags and the SIXaxis BOOBs
lol. isn't the mags the REAL reason why we all love MGS so much? :P
Why so soon with the review, anyway it will get a 10/10 hell everyone will give it 9.5's and up.
I think reviewers are spoiling the hype of games. I remember early on when they said reviews didn't matter(since certain gamers weren't getting scores some felt like they deserved) since it's much, all opinion, now we wait for them like NPD numbers.
i'll say 8/10
lol, that better be sarcastic. Saying that MGS4 will get a 8/10 is the same that saying that GeoW 2 will get a 8/10 so, choose your words carefully.
xTard Alert, troll elsewhere
Disgruntled xbots now: "MGS4 sucks", "MGS4 will be 8/10"
How about a perfect 10/10? Try again.
pp your a 1st class N00B
justure, i was thinking maybe 7 out of 10
is not ninja gaiden 2 nor gears of wars 2
Still can't match MGS and series has been on a decline.
I think you mean Halo and not MGS.:p
Are you seriously kidding me? MGS4 is going to be one kick-ass, action packed game. I cannot wait to play this, and get more into MGS. I swear, if it was on the 360, you babies would have been rejoicing. But since it's a PS3 exclusive, you say it'll be an 8.5. You guys are laughable. Please...stop it...I'm about to fall out of my chair.
who cares this game can only be done on ps3 9.5 out of 10 maybe 9.6 fan boys wont let reviews pass there mega super game gears of war 1.5 lol This game makes all x box games look like KA KA
It's MGS for god sakes. Who cares what number they give it, I still won't read the review, especially this early out. I want to experience MGS4 without any spoilers so this will be one review I will pass on.
I hope my wrist is fine by the time it hits. This is, without a shadow of doubt, my most anticipated game and that is very rare since I never wanted a game so much before. >.< Just as I was about to play GTAIV... I broke my wrist. :/
I got my issue already, and they gave it a 5 stars out of 5.
hiding in a cardboard box until june 12 as of...NOW
I have read alot on Metal Gear Solid 4 and even before all of the hype,I have wanted this game!The excitement builds and it's like the world is about to explode!!!! I'll Die many times over just to get my hands on this game!
Trust me...this shall be my college graduation gift along with the Dualshock 3.
Kojima is definitely getting my $60 bucks. The only thing I think I would complain about is the lengthy cut scenes. This is the GOTY for me.
But i will be expecting scores between the 9-10 category. Excellent gameplay, superb story-telling and great characters will deserve no less. By far my facvorite franchise. MG3 was my favorite of them all. Final battle was great and that song which they played at the end was excellent. I'm sure people will be pissed if it scores lower than 10 but hey, sometimes that's how things go. I know reviews are not going to stop me from playig it so I know it won't for y'all. Hopefully Kojima may do a different series and maybe continue it with a new character but not call it Metal Gear Solid but metal gear something. Franchise is to good. If resident evil can continue for all of these year darn it kojima so can metal gear. Anyways on a different note, i've played GTA4 and a very good game. I know i'm here setting up myself for a bashing but does anyone think that it did not deserve all of the 10 it receieved? Surely in the category of 9-10 but mostly all 10? But like I said it's a great game which I do enjoy so if y'all wanna play then add me. My psn id:piedpiper85
they would dare giving it less because they would get bombarded with hate mail from fanboys
"they would dare giving it less because they would get bombarded with hate mail from fanboys " so, when did we start talking about Halo 3? you don't have a PS3 so, why talk trash in this thread.
I don't plan on reading the review, im going somewhat anti-metal gear news to prevent spoilers but I expected this to get near perfect reviews as well.
im to a complete mgs fanboy. mgs2 is the reason i got a ps2 then mgs3 came out and now mgs4. ps i have played all the mgs games but it all began with mgs1 original on the psx.
Only PLAYSTATION® 3 gives gamers the true AAA experience the industry looks for. If Metal Gear Solid 4 was attempted on Xbox 360, it's given that the hardware itself would undergo severe malfunction issues as PLAYSTATION® 3 exclusives simply can not be reproduced on Xbox 360. This leaves Microslaves no other choice but to Jump Out. $niper
Unfortunately, once the reviews start coming out. All hell is going to break loose. Doesn't matter what those scores are. Good scores, bad scores, it's going to be chaos.
IMO really looking 4ward to this game
I do not expect more than 9.2 or less than 8.5 out of 10 as average from all games web site... As a fan of snake and his metal gear i give it from now 100% no matter what other gamers or web sites say....
this game better deliver. Since gta4, lot of people questioning the power of the cell. Do or die for sony. I know its under 720p but it will be amazing. Main reason i bought the ps3. Still can't believe how much i like the 360 still.
50,000 XBOX 360 units have died. GTA IV performs better on the PS3. I can't believe other XBOTS let you in the XBOT/pedophile club with statements like... "Still can't believe how much i like the 360 still." Still, that's all I have to say still. By the way, I love all the idiots on this site by the way, by the way... over by the way... next to the way... (I updated my comment with...) Still.
Let the high 9s and tens start coming :)
10/10 Perfect score a real game worth rating that high. I wish this weren't the last game in the series but I'm not tripping since Kojima wants to work on a totally new series to a game that's still unknown set to come out late 2009 early 2010. PS3 FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Xtards will be hiding under cardboard boxes on May 16 once MGS4 for PLAYSTATION®3 scores 11/10 next week,hiding their ugly wrong faces,eating there own words,MGS4 is GOTY 2008!;) $hane
