1UP: Metal Gear Solid 4 Preview

The Metal Gear series has always offered players the freedom to choose between silent stealth and naked aggression, a dichotomy that truly came into its own with 2001's Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. The game's hero, Raiden, became a sort of walking arsenal -- but most weapons would utterly blow his cover with noise or visibility. Sure, blasting a few Gurlukovich soldiers with a rocket-powered grenade was a hoot, but serious Metal Gear fans prefer to play by the rules... and that means never being spotted, and never killing an enemy if at all possible.

Metal Gear Solid 4 offers a truly epic array of weapons and items to use -- reportedly in the neighborhood of 70 -- but it also offers Snake more ways than ever to slip through the game's massive, war-torn battlefields without anyone ever realizing he was there. Stealth has always been Metal Gear's most unique and influential contribution to gaming, so fans will find encouragement in the impressive possibilities available to Snake.

Great preview. June 12th baby. Sorry 360 owners.

Lifendz3621d ago

just tell them to save that money. You're going to want a PS3 for this game and the others coming soon anyway. Last year maybe not but this year is looking huge for PS3.

No need to apologize to anyone. 360 gamers have been enjoying a plethora of AAA games and have many on the horizon.

More so we should be congratulating the PS3 owners for finally having a AAA game to call their own.

I'm still not buying a PS3 nor anyone I know.

There have been plenty of fun games and so many more to come for the PS3. Although there have been many games for the 360, there is only one that stands out (Gears of War). Besides for that there are none that I would call amazing.

Truthfully, there are so many more original/creative/and amazing looking games for the PS3 that I will not think you would say the same if you purchase a PS3 for yourself this year.

Giant Enemy Crab, then list those AAA titles for me.
Come on, list them.
I thought so.

June 12th=Judgment Day.

The only game on the 360 that I consider to be AAA that is exclusive is Dead Rising.. oh yeah Mass Effect, can't forget that one. Everything else is boring to me.
