New MGS4 preview: The biggest PS3 game of the year proves its status.

snippets from playstaion official magazine's preview of MGS4

Call it the circle of life, PS3 style. On June 12, one of gaming's most beloved franchisees comes to a conclusion in what's arguably the most ambitious console game so far. Yet on the very same day-a day of brilliant ending-the Playstation 3 will come of age.

Through platform demonstrations in the battle for next gen mindshare, MGS4 has become the poster child for PS3 potential. But with such high hopes from so many parties, could one game really live up to all of the lofty expectations
The answer, simply put, is YES.

The very opening cutscene demonstrates high end, modern cinematic style that prevails to the end. The attention to visual detail in every character, environment and effect is simply mesmerizing- even the desert fatigues are astoundingly realistic. This Middle Eastern environment teems with realistic details that could have been culled from CNN's coverage of the war in Iraq.

At its heart, MGS4 is a simple story about saving the world from the one main bad guy intent on destroying it. It's weaving; winding exposition explains snake's Werner syndrome symptom as well as the various other unanswered questions from the past games

Watching characters move with astonishing realism, execute tactical maneuvers against your position and work together as military personnel should is simply stunning.

Its all part of the balancing act that MGS4 seems to have nailed- an elegant balance that will also affect millions of gamers when the conclusion of the key franchisee will also signal the beginning of a new era for PS3

have merely scratched the surface of what you'll get to experience in the full game. So much is still unsaid, unrevealed, that you shouldn't think that you know every detail of what to expect come june 12.

TresTrendu3876d ago

60 buck's for a movie, i will pass.

sonarus3876d ago

Keep on singing that tired MGS movie line if it makes you feel better.

jwatt3876d ago

That is what makes mgs4 so great the mix of gameplay with great story telling through it's cut scenes. The cut scenes in MGS give the game so much emotion and it is probably why there won't be any game as big and epic as MGS4, not even GTA4.

theKiller3876d ago (Edited 3876d ago )

it is the game of the year of ps3 and maybe of all platforms,
i can understand if someone has doubts in buying GTA4 but not MGS4, its a master piece game, action stealth and movie like game!! u will have a lot of emotions in MSG4 more than GTA4, GTA4 is about having fun and doing bad things, MGS4 is about u going to another world, the world of snake and that is one of the best characters of gaming of all time!

i simply don't know what to say.

CrazyMystical3876d ago

i cant freaking wait playing the beta & using snake for just one game/mode gave me such a rush it builds on my hype.

pp3876d ago

WRONG sony droids the biggest game of the year will go to GEARS OF WAR 2 i'm sorry to break the news

every time you post a comment that is all we see.

GoW2 will be a great game but MGS4 is a Masterpiece

That is the difference. deal with it

PP The Retard, is at every single piece of PS3 news, seriously fυck off down syndrome boy.

Phil Harrison Mklll3876d ago

pp how do you type this stuff while your being breastfed?

juuken3876d ago

Would you shutup about Gears of War 2?
This is getting to be a bit annoying. MGS4 comes out before your Gears of War. You're just mad that this game will probably be THE best game in the history of gaming.

And the xababies continue to cry, and wail, and cry some more.

Instant GOTY

I already pre-ordered my copy

This is a must have for all ps3 owners

even some of my xbot friends are buying a ps3 just for this game

games4fun3876d ago (Edited 3876d ago )

can get a ten then mgs4 better get one as well and if it doesnt i'll still buy it regardless

i'm saying this because gta4 although great is stunning from a technical standpoint (endorphin engine and size of city). But the singleplayer imo is not even in the same league as mgs series.

jwatt3876d ago

That's what I'm saying gta is a great game I guess the multiplayer help push it to a 10 but mgs4 has multiplayer too which is good. But the single player in mgs4 is going to be so huge that I'm looking into getting an hd tv and surround sound to get the best experience I can.

RecSpec3876d ago

Technically MGS4 doesn't have multiplayer. Metal Gear Online is classified as a separate game.
