ReelGamers Review: Metal Gear Solid 4

The difficulty in writing a review of this magnitude is the constant struggle to remain objective. There is so much good to say about this title and so very little negative that its one-sidedness might seem a bit unfounded to the reader; I assure you I will do my best in giving as balanced a perspective as I can without giving away too much information. The game undoubtedly captivates from the moment you place the disc into the Playstation 3 and does not let up for its thirty hour duration. Following an opening that literally left me rattled, I found myself having to put the controller down for a few minutes in order to properly gather my thoughts. Like any title affiliated with the name 'Kojima', Metal Gear Solid 4's comprehensive story, exotic art direction, Hollywood-esque cut scenes, memorable characters, sharp dialogue, and overall quality surpasses anything yet seen on the Playstation 3, and quite possibly the past decade.

NOTE: Let it be known that does not issue numerical scores for any video game, movie or television show it reviews.

What is most impressive about Metal Gear Solid 4 is not its sublime visuals, sound character development or near-perfect gunplay, but the sheer amount of love to which Kojima has poured into the game. Every last detail, from Snake’s Solid-Eye system to the homage paid to the series’ past is executed masterfully

Says it all right there! June 12.

read what it says at the end, if he was going to give a rating here, he would be giving it a 10.

"When you finally complete Snake’s heroic tale, sit back, relax and enjoy what’s coming, because when it’s all over (assuming you don’t play it through three to four more times) you’ll be able to sleep soundly knowing that you just played one of the greatest games of all time. "

After reading this review, my head's about to burst due to severe anticipation. I can't wait!!

"For those who’d prefer to stand out like a sore thumb with guns a-blazing, the cover system proves advantageous and exceedingly useful. To summarize, the only film I can recall that has this intense an opening forty-five minutes is Saving Private Ryan."

Wow, great comparison. Saving Private Ryan was an epic movie, for him to say that, just tells you that this game is going to pwn everything

morganfell3458d ago

and of course the latest copy of egm has two of the anti-sony editors reviewing it stating the game lacked a cover system.

JVIDICAN3458d ago (Edited 3458d ago )

that egm review was a fake
~i didnt dissagree~

pwnsause3458d ago (Edited 3458d ago )

screw EGM, let them go suck Microshafts D1ck and go RROD for all i care they're the ones that are going to look stupid in front of the public when they give it the wrong rating. MGS doesnt need a cover system.Period.

BTW:i did not disagree with you

Maverick_3458d ago

Wow such an amazing review. MGS4 pwns all.

Jamie Foxx3458d ago (Edited 3458d ago )

Maverick_3458d ago
