1UP: Metal Gear Solid 4 Preview

War has changed, and so has Solid Snake. He's old now, though none of his comrades are -- and rumor has it that he has just six months left before his rapidly aging body gives out. Endless conflict has spread across the world as a self-sustaining economic force, Liquid Snake (now Liquid Ocelot) has his own military force that is as large as any nation's, invincible robo-women rule the battlefield, and little baby Metal Gears are an inexorable battlefield presence capable of annihilating entire platoons in an instant.

"War has changed, and so has Solid Snake. He's old now, though none of his comrades are" -- "Welcome to Metal Gear Solid 4, the latest, bleakest, and most absolutely final chapter of the Metal Gear series. (Or so we're promised.) For all its bleakness, it's also the most modern Metal Gear yet"

There is some bad journalism in my Metal Gear Solid.

who slams the game more? 1up or Gamespot?



gunnerforlife3662d ago

i wish i could agree and disagree with u lol there both gone slam it just u watch, there gone be having a field day with it as well, just cuz there slamming sonys biggest game of all time

Tmac3662d ago (Edited 3662d ago )

Definitely Gamespot.

"There's to much variety in this game. The OPEN world is way to OPEN. There is way to many guns, and there is way to many things to do period, what a disappointment, in fact the game is WAY to long bordering at 30 hours with WAY to many extras, I'm sorry I have to give this game 7.5/10".

Equally rivaling 1up's review.

"This game is so bleak, seriously I think it may be the bleakest in the bleak series although it's in a bleak and modern/futuristic bleak setting. It's really heart breaking to give this massively hyped bleak game a bleaking rating of 7/10."

juuken3662d ago

Gamespot most likely. More rabid bots over there, lol. Believe me, I was IN that warzone.

DrPirate3661d ago

Bleak can also mean blunt, direct, everything spread on the table so to speak.

OrignalGoatseGuy3661d ago

"who slams the game more? 1up or Gamespot? "

Most likely Eurogamer.

sonarus3661d ago

My predicted ratings. 1up A Gamespot 9.0

Those will be the lowest scores for MGS4. They won't be able to bring it any lower for fear of their life

Doppy3661d ago

It depends on who rates it on 1up. Shane was invited to play the game at the Kojima event, and he seemed estatic, and based off what he played (which was played months before the release) he seemed to be ready to give it an A+ or 10/10. I got this feeling because he says "Even if the don't fix the minor problems like the harsh difficulty during a certian mission, I already know what I would rate this game." Believe what you want, but I expect at least a A- from 1up. Maybe a 9.0 from Gamestop.

I think this game is really scared the sh!t out of M$... their executives have been talking smack of the competitions and tried to divert attention more to them... and this game is just the beginning...

LarVanian3662d ago

360! Your time has come!
Your reign of terror comes to an end!
No longer will you make babies cry with the RROD!
No longer will you bore gamers with your Space Marine games!
You will burn in the fires of Hell for all eternity, like you burned all those poor citizen's homes down.

............Xbox 360...............Judgement day has arrived!

Contra263661d ago

everyone has their eyes focused on Gears.

Gears brings more Heat than MGS... sorry.. go to the home page of N4G.

Gears is higher than this crap

pwnsause3661d ago

the heat is going to re-increase though. sorry gtfo with your Gays of war.

mart_is_Apig3661d ago

when Resistance 2 is launched PS3 would have surpassed x360 in WW sales

even if the PS3 remain in DEAD HEAT in US it will easily surpass x360's LTD based on strong WW (eu sales)

However i seriously doubt whether x360 will remain EVEN in Us after MGS4's release

LarVanian3661d ago (Edited 3661d ago )

You should indeed be sorry (Since you said it twice in your post) for buying a broken piece of crap console (360) and for playing such sh!t games on it.

I reckon 1Up like this game - check it - "The hype for this game is starting to hit the sort of ridiculous peaks that Halo 3 enjoyed...but it's not without merit. Few games can claim such an impressive level of gameplay detail, narrative ambition, and big-budget polish. We love rooting for the underdog, but sometimes the triple-A hits really are worthy of the hype"

"The hype for this game is starting to hit the sort of ridiculous peaks that Halo 3 enjoyed"

That's what I like to hear, because I really think this game deserves the hype just as much as Halo3 or GTA4.

Omicron3661d ago

themyk3661d ago
