A leading gaming magazine of Spain has given MGS4 9.6/10 . The same mag gave GTA4 a 9.6 and Halo 3 a 9.1.
Scans of the magazine are added in the alternative section
The day of epicness.
hahaha halo 3 PWNED. It sucks that MGS4 can't pull ahead of GTA4 though:( Wow apparently the reviewer actually cried while playing the game...holy $hit kojima is at it again. http://forums.gametrailers....
agree. but I think mgs4 should have been few points higher and GTA4 shouldnt have such high score.
What is up with the 9.6, 9.7 scores?
Give the game a 10 allready, it is probably the only game that deserves the score until now and for some time to come.
only and only on PlayStation 3
50GB of Perfection
Only 2 Weeks until PS3 shows its power !
@Mainman- Do not sweat the 9.6's and 9.8's. It's not like other games that had fluttering reviews with 9.1's or 8.8. What it shows is that this game is receiving solid and consistant reviews and illustrating that this game is EPIC!
@Hydrolex-Yes, we all have known that it is exclusive on the PS3. I think the PS3 has been showing it's power for a while.
Edit: Uh oh a phantom disagree, leave a reason or become like a nat buzzing in my ear.
lol Microsoft just wasted 50mil on GTA IV and the game is overhyped seriously. Don't disagree me until you finish the game
We all know GTA IV doesn't deserve a 10.
GTA IV honest review = 9.3 / 10
Halo 3 got owned ? I just saw the Masterchief in the hospital walking weird. The doctor said Snake raped him.
Not going to read any Reviews tho, don't want to spoil the Epic Story;)
Mainman, not all review sites/mags will give a 10 out of 10 (which I actually agree with) there was a report a while ago about what makes a game 10 out of 10 and where as a lot of places throw 10's around willy nilly there are some sites/mags say that 10 is unachievable because the game has to be perfect in all aspects and that really isn't possible. 9.6 is an amazing score just like how I feel about this game in that it's going to be a very memorable experience. EDIT: Haha, I agree with you Ken, I haven't read one review, I've already seen too much, I suppose it'll only add up to a few minutes total from what we've already seen so we should have another 20-30 hours of unseen greatness... 16 DAYS!
But I still feel the BS reasons they used to throw those 10's around for swag games need to be made here, because when the next hype fest comes along and gets straight 10's (and it will) MGS:4 will just look worse. But who are we kidding none of this matters to the ACTUAL GAME anyway June 12 is gonna be SICK!!!
Halo 3 - 6/10
GTA4 - 8/10
MGS4 - At least 9 if it's half as good as I expect it to be.
Lowest score yet. lol. When the lowest is 9.6, it means things are going REALLY good
x360s death in USA console war finishes in europe SONY and PS3 will rule supreme
June 12th will see oceans of TEARS xfixme's DOOMSDAY hahahhaaaaaaaa .......please go play FLOP GAIDEN 2 --7/10 from most websites hahhaaaaa @surfman there are 40 m ps2 owners who havent converted they will be converting to PS3 with MGS4 kill x360??? only old xbox owners purchase that and all of them have already purchased one as i said it is fully over for XFIXME in JUNE
Lol i wish it can be true, but i dont think it'll happen. It'll be a huge success and the ps3 will sell very well now in the usa, but we'll still need more AAA exclusives to kill the 360. It's just about time, just about time..
well if Metacritic is at 8.1....and you know how to do math....then actually most sites scored it at 8 or above. Really you should figure out how to use real facts. Like saying I am people who I am not, see that is what people call a false statement. I only have one id. I am sorry that you have over 10 and can't keep yours straight. Don't put me in the same "lame boat" as you. Now craftsman, go and try and troll some more.
He doesn't know what he's talking about. Sony does not pay him to know, they pay him to spam.
You basta*** get the fu** out this N4G June 12th ==doomsday for garbage box 360
all this ho-stility.... Why all the anger? sir you need to calm down. You do realize it is just a video game right? If mgs gets a metacritic of 8.9 are you going to cry yourself to sleep every night? Seriously, calm is the word of the day.
Hahaha Nasim aka Lenhart is funny!!! Now everybody is TheMART. Everybody on this site that posts against you is TheMART! You're slowly going insane. I am everywhere. I am in your head, in your dreams. Damn dude, what drugs do you use? Some new kind of magic mushrooms found in a secret room somewhere in sUpeR MaRio GalAxY? (especially for you are the capitals) NG2, you mean the average reviews on 85%??? http://www.gamerankings.com... Nasim, we know you lie all the time. Here is a great game for your PS3, exclusive a so called Halo 3 killer, Haze! 57% http://www.gamerankings.com...
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Look at those dumb bots. They're scared and jealous. MGS4 outscored Halo 3. More proof that MGS4 will piss all over Halo 3. It's time to buy a PS3 now bots.
June 12th the day Japan drops it's own A-Bomb onto the world
If i lived in Japan when the atomic bomb was dropped, then i would plot to get revange and kill ALLL Americans (as we talk they maybe plotting to take revenge)
If i couldnt then i would just hate them all, just like Japan
Just like Kojima hates Xbox so he released MGS2 on the same day as the Xbox 1 was released. Proabably to make it sell like craaap
This well sell like hot cakes every where, and i'm lovin the scores so far
@coolguy WTF are you talking about? Japan was our enemy, no, they were a huge threat for the whole entire world since they were allies with the Nazis. But that was the past. "Enemies change along with the times, the flow of the ages."
Japan is gona revenge U.S's A-bomb.
Making MGS4 which makes kids don't study and play MGS4.
U.S fat percent is gonna grow 27%
they will launch multiple assaults of giant mechs and exo skeleton wearing ninjas. A-bombs are so oldfashioned for something as advanced as Japan
lol, at Patriot. that was classic man, bubble to you.
They're gonna launch EVA unit 00. Who needs an army when you have EVA?
And the ninjas. Can't forget the ninjas.
I am a big aniem fan. and i will tell u al guy now. That teh follwoign anime a the filth and over rated crap of this planet
1.FLC (what anime haters think of a weird plotless anime)
2.NEON genesis EvA (one of the worst animes in existance)
3.Ranam 1/2 (pile of shhhit. looks like ass)
4.Saiyuki (King of all crap, only an idiot would like )
5.Gintama (noooot funny, mainly for GAYLORDs)
please do not watch these anime or you will hate JAPAN and the WORLD
Which makes kids don't study... Great grammar genius. Way to prove your point... Looks like your fat percentage increased by 27% as well... The fat between your ears increased.
You all should be ashamed for joking about atomic bombs. Thousands of people died. Its not funny like cracking on Hydrolex fat mom...
listen....im all pro japan in a kinda way and anti US (in a BUSHy kinda way) but not all americans are the same. some americans are just lovely and talented ppl, some aint (just like any other place)....to make a sweeping statement about killing all our US friends is just plain dumb in a games forum.
What you think!?
I played Ocarina on launch day, and it was awesome.... but honestly... MGS4 will be LEGENDARY.
Well not everyone will accept a shotting game as the best game ever. Especially one that seems to be following the path of an FPS
Only on PS TRIPLE
In my eyes yes I think it probably will but to the rest of the world I don't think so, not everyone is into the MGS cutscenes/story like I am, but then again I don't care about everyone, just me =)
Apparently Chad Warden's greatest fan has gone nuts. ;)
i got can't wait!!! hurry june 12th
GTA4 was good, but dont deserved 10/10, probably same as GOD4, something like 9.5 and this game will get probably same scores.
MGS4 will never get better scores than GTA4 because... BECAUSE it's PS3 exclusive and there's so many pro-360 websites on this planet that can't be honest. That's sad, but we all know that MGS4 will beat that GTA4.
Yeah MS pays every single site out there to give them favorable reviews... Its a great business plan. Excellent way to make money. You children need to wake up to reality and stop believing in fairy tales.
WAAAAH MSG4 is PS3 exclusive so the vast underground conspiracy against Sony will organize against it... Yeah just like you played army men with your little sister last week.
How did Halo get involved in this? Why do you sony fanboys always throw Halo around? Never seen so much respect and fear for one game.
why are you here? don't you hate the ps3, i think i smell FEAR from you...
You don't have a PS3 + You're here complaining = You're full of fear. Too bad Ninja Gaiden 2 failed. I can understand where all the hate is coming from.
Halo shouldn't be mentioned in the same sentence as MGS. It's not in the same class. Oh, sorry. That's not what you meant to say? I tend to misunderstand fanboy comments.
hes got a point why is halo being thrown around it has nothing to do with the success of mgs4.
BTW:this is a day 1 pick up for me cant freakin wait + M-Player wowa
They are using it to set the SCALE of how to take the review seriously. a 9.1 for Halo is realistic, as is the score for GTA. This clearly isn't a western magazine that goes "ZOMG HALO GTA!!!" and hands 10's out. So a 9.6 for MGS4 is a solid grade, considering that now everyone realizes how much more hype there was in GTA than actual content.
@turbogeekx - Please explain how Ninja Gaiden failed?
NG2 hasn't failed, it hasn't even been released yet. and at firstknight, I think Halo 3 is being tossed around in here because of all the PS3 exclusives that were made fun of over the past years and touted as epic fail. I think they're just trying to get back at all the hate us PS3 owners got over the years and finally the PS3 is showing its worth. Though.. (almost)2 years is a bit long. I think my way of getting back at all the hate is just being able to play MGS4! :D
NG2 is averaging 85% on gamerankings.com If you think that's a failure than you can pretty much say 90% of the ps3's gaming library is a failure. You sony fanboys desperately want to crush Halo with every ps3 game that comes out. I seen Halo talked about in GT threads. A freaking racing game. That is called major jealousy. Atleast try to keep the debate to the same genre. And currently Sony's gaming library has zero First Person Shooter's that even comes close to Halo.
I have heard 3 reviews saying MGS4 will be one of the greatest of all time... saying it was the best game they ever played and it was better than Halo 3 and Gears of WAR. It is.
One review went on to say MGS4 made the "competitors" look downright pathetic. LOL.
A guy thats played the game on gametrailers said the game was better than Halo 3 and Gears. Becuase it is. It's going to score better. It's going to sale more (than Gears at least, Halo we will have to see)
MGS4 has nothing to do with Halo. This is METAL GEAR SOLID... a 20 year old franchise and has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to so with FpS Halo.
you can play MGS4 in 1st person :)
Didnt you whine because ps fanboys were commenting on a xbox news? ...and what are you doing now?
Halo is average at best. Thats just my opinion, disagree with me all you want. The reason people are bringing it up is because it was the biggest game for the 360 to date just like MGS4 will be for the PS3. Honestly if I was a reviewer for Halo 3 I would have given it a 6.5 at best. But that's just me, I never really liked Halo and I probably never will. It's a cool game and all, but it's not remarkable or anything. MGS4 if it lives up to my expectations will be very remarkable in the story/gameplay/graphics. Heck man you should find a way to play it, you might like it.
why so low? don't tell me it's another review that took points away because the story is too complex @Ice yeah, like 3 reviews have done that they say the game is a 10 for fans, but not a ten for regular joe's because the story is too complex for them to be honest, the story is too complex for everyone- im a huge MGS fan and i still don't understand the whole thing Kojima is crazy @LenBOT its over for MS and XBUTTS like you, go play GAYLO 3 at 26p
Lol, they take points away because of that?
I see, that's asinine. As are the two people who disagreed with me for asking a question.
like GAYYYYYERS , GAYLO3 at 640p and FLOP GAIDEN --7/10 SONY boys just look at the comments of ICEBOT aka MART
Or maybe Haze on PS3 exclusive on 576p? Or GTAIV on PS3 on 640p while 720p on the 360? Or MGS4 on 720p instead of the real HD promised 1080p? Exactly Lenhart aka Nasim aka Tanod, I am Icewake, ofcourse. hahaaha you're looking more stupid by the minute
Hey mart hows that flop NG2 with 20 fps?
i don't think anybody said mgs4 was going to be 1080p. and if you look at the size of this game, for them to have been able to pull off 720 just goes to show how good these guys really are at their jobs. and as for gta4 being a lower res on the ps3 is kind of weird even though the ps3 version looked better. must have been that horrible 5 minute download we had to sit through.
No one said MGS4 would be 1080p.
Poor Mart, getting desperate. We all know you want this game badly, go buy yourself a PS3.
All PS3 owners need to buy this game, even if you've never played any of the previous games. Support Kojima and his crew, that way they'll continue to make PS3 exclusives.
because halo is nothing but a mediocre game that was praised up the ass and didnt deserve it...all i hear people talk about is the multiplayer of halo...you never hear anything about the story and the overall single player experience of halo...metal gear solid is a game that deserves all that praise and all that publicity for revolutionizing the game industry with its immersive gameplay and amazing story...thats the kind of game that deserves high scores not a game that is only praised for its multiplayer
It's subjective. I own all 3 systems and think that MGS4 will be Epic, but to start to bash other games is not necassary to get your point accross.
You praise MGS's story? Now your just reaching. The story is one silly soap opera mess. A story that is made for kids. Seriously...taking out a dirty magazine to heal yourself???? LMAO....childish!
At least it got a story unlike Gears and Halo, their story were horrific.
