IGN: Metal Gear Solid 4 UK Review - 9.9/10

IGN Writes:

"If you've ever loved any one of the Metal Gear games, or any moments from the series, there will come a moment when MGS 4 will send your spirits soaring. If you've loved them all, well then there'll be many, many more. It's a masterpiece. But forget you read that. Go play it and find out for yourself. Because it's the kind of game that, if you play it after being told it's a masterpiece, might end up disappointing you because of the hype. So forget the hype. Forget that it's a magnificent, ground-breaking, masterpiece. Just play it, and enjoy a dazzling, heart-lifting, voyage of discovery." (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) 9.9/10

9.9 WTF does that mean
lol thats like when one of my professors gave me a 89!
NoUseMerc  +   2810d ago
They just couldn't give it a perfect 10 could

IGN - "Oh no, a PS3 exclusive...hmm, well even though its the greatest game on a console yet, we just can't say its perfect..."
LenHart  +   2810d ago
I am a little disappointed
If a game like GTA4 gets 10 then MGS4 should definitely get 10/10

MGS4 is better than GTA4 in every respect .

GTA4 graphics deserve no more than 8 . It should have got 9/10. i fell for the review and was massively disappointed with the game

IGN US --please hear this --If you dont give MGS4 a 10/10 then we will stop going to your website . You will die just like Gamespot which was once the no1 website

No way in hell is GTA4 a perfect 10 but it got one. You could easily find 0.1 points to deduct from its score.

Complete inconsistency.

Seems like fanboyism is still alive and well with even the mainstream game sites.
juuken  +   2810d ago
Lol, yeah. It's like they can't somehow give you the 90. xD
deeznuts  +   2810d ago
In exchange for cash, IGN got an exclusive review, while GTA got a perfect 10 and guarantee nobody else gets one for a set amount of time.

This is their way of giving the game the best score it deserves, while not breaching it's contract with Rockstar!
Meresin  +   2810d ago
The problem with GTA IV wasn't fanboyism, I don't think, but rather that not a one of the game reviewers out there had the stones to stand up and tell Rockstar that their game wasn't perfect. They could lose all access to the company when they do something like that, including both early access to the game in development, and access to early review copies.

Given that, whether it deserves the distinction or not, GTA is one of the biggest franchises in the industry, it is really difficult for journalists to choose the right way when they have so many hits to lose. It's an ugly, dishonest thing, but that's the nature of business.

End result? I won't be buying another GTA game without playing it first. That game deserved a nine *at best.*
Presentist  +   2810d ago
GTA was overhyped. It's a 5/10 in my book.

I don't have a PS3, but I'm pissed at this score. If you're going to give a game a 9.9/10, just give it the 10 it deserves.
donator  +   2809d ago
Things to mark .1 off of GTA 4 for:
Gameplay mechanics: Auto-aim is shotty, hand-to-hand combat almost pointless, lack of a variety of weapons.

Multiplayer: Does not feel polished. Few co-op modes that never change destination points (I don't think it would have been too hard to do that right?) Some modes are utter crap. Cops and Crook had high potential, but only starting off with two max cop cars? Come on.

Presentation: Cut scenes were pretty boring and I think they all took place indoors.

Lasting appeal: Even if I wanted to play the game again, I wouldn't watch the cut scenes again. The missions are repetitive, not many different ways to finish a mission.

MGS4 towers GTA4 in all of these respects yet it gets a lower score? What happened mate?
donator  +   2809d ago
I kinda think that GTA4 got perfect scores because they really wanted Rockstar to succeed at all costs... because if not, they would have tempted to let EA buy them.
CrazzyMan  +   2809d ago
The game is a MasterPiece.
Indeed. =)
yourgodisdead  +   2809d ago
IGN are starting to piss me off, Gta is definitly over rated, and they know it, online sucks, driving sucks, and the story is lackluster, same thing different game.

I know Metal gear deserved a ten, everyone does, and we havent even played it.
JimmyHACK  +   2809d ago
its straight up we cant give 2 10's out so close together
got 10's for presentation/gameplay/graphics /sound - yet they give it 9.9

maybe IGN US will figure out what is up
Lifendz  +   2809d ago
Props to Hilary Goldstein
for having the "b@!!s" to give GTAIV a 10. He said that some people won't give a 10 because they just don't have the guts to do it. And this is proof of that. Don't give a game a 9.9. WTF is that? Either do it all or don't. What the hell is the .01 percentage of flaw that held it back?

PSN: Lifendz
Danny Dan  +   2809d ago
IGN gave EVERYTHING a 10 but when it came to their lasting appeal they wrote this:

"Aside from the fact that the cut-scenes bear repeated viewing, you’ll want to play through MGS 4 again and again, simply to unlock ever more exotic weapons, items and player rankings."

but they give it a 9.5... If you love a game so much that you go as far as to say that you'll want to play it over and over and over again... and it you give it a 9.5...?! Simply.. wtf?!

The simple reason is.. they couldn't give two 10's so close together... wooow.. I just hope IGN US/America score is different and read their comments. Because IGN is not making NO sense with this review.
HighDefinition  +   2809d ago
MGS4 FTW.......
Also, if you didn`t know Hilary Goldstein is the MAN, He is one of the head 360 guys at IGN and he complete thinks the 360 has NO CHANCE against the PS3. He was the 1st "BIG 360 guy" in the industry to actually say it. Listen to the 3 Red Lights podcast on IGN, Hilary is awesome.
ip-student  +   2809d ago
Seems like the score is high to me
The following comment sealed the deal for me:

"Hopefully it won't be bending the rules to far to reveal that they [the cut-scenes] represent about half of the content of the game."

No way I am playing a game that is half cut-scenes. I think this is a love-hate type game and like all JPRGs I have seen - don't love it. And before you say "you can skip the cut-scenes" - that is how the game was intended to be played and no doubt brings something to the feel. But I don't like that kind of gameplay (or lack thereof) so I don't see how such a game can deserve such a high score. At most a 9.5 IMO - well done but the gameplay score should suffer because you have to sit through a huge amount of cut-scenes. Your milage may vary.
DARKKNIGHT  +   2809d ago
Ignorant Gamer Nation............wanted a check with alot of zeroes from konami.

mgs4 will sell masses, it will move the masses to see ign as a farce just like gamespot and gametrailers. twoface, nogood, m$ as$hole licking, corrupt, cream twinkie eating mudaphuckas

pssss: i cant wait for this to release on 360!!!!!!!!lol i loved those rumours

especially when theres no way in hell that the 360 can pull off a game of this caliber.
ps3 is like a 50 cal rifle. 360 is still in the 9mm pistol arena.

- We now have the highest rated exclusive, and probably the highest rated game (metacritic) of all time on our PS3

BrianC6234  +   2809d ago
I wonder if all the people who gave GTA IV a 10 will also give MGS4 a 10? It probably deserves it more. Not that GTA IV is bad but how did it get so many 10s? It isn't a perfect game.
vickers500  +   2809d ago
You fanboys piss me off. IGN was paid for their GTA IV review, and you should have come to that conclusion as well. That being said, assuming this review was not paid off, and I'm sure it wasn't, IGN gave this game a 9.9, a nine point f*cking 9, most likely not having been paid off for their review, and you are still saying "l!k3 WTF Z0mG IGN !s FanBoize!!1!!1".

You are acting like 9.9 is a bad score or something. No, gta iv didn't deserve its score like I said, but they didn't give that score based on what they actually thought about the game, they did it because they were paid off. I don't have any actual way to prove that they were paid off, but it's pretty d@mned obvious that given IGN
s usual strict gaming reviews, you can safely assume they were.

So here, a game comes along, with little to no marketing hype, which probably means they don't care about paying off reviewers, that gets a 9.9 honestly and fairly. That to me says an awful lot about how f*cking groundbreaking this game is, and well if you fanoybs just can't except that, well I feel sorry for you that you care about that little .1 so much.

WTF it means
It means that according to this review its as close to perfection as is but seriously people. Weather this game gets all ten is not revelent.We all knew that this game won't get perfect score because its a PS exclusive and it dosen't matter really because we all know that MGS4 will kick ass and will be remembered long after the Hype that is Halo 3 and GTA4. MGS4 will be remebered in the same vein as FF7. I believe in Kojima as he always delivers. Seriously f*ck what reviewers say. 12 more days baby.

You have turned into a little prissy f@ggot, just over this one review. And you know what we don't need your review to know that this game is perfect. Us PS3 owners and 360 gamers as well know that this game is perfect in any and every freakin way. So suck it, go play your little Wii or 360, and we'll go play our:




SolidSnake93  +   2809d ago
That seems a bit excessive, I mean I think Metal Gear is GOTY, but boycotting a site simply because it gave a 9.9 which is an excellent score isn't reasonable, if they gave it a 7.5 I would boycott it, but I wouldn't care if IGN US gave it 9.9. When was the last time IGN UK gave a game a 9.9.
Delt4  +   2809d ago
Just give it the 10.5 it deserves! We all know this game is going to kick some serious @ss. Even my XBOX 360 fanboy self can admit that.

I kinda find it funny that they game it a 9.9, but gave GTA IV a 10. I personally find something wrong with that.

I guess the Exclusive right to post the first review of GTA affect the score a little.

Hmmmmmm..... MGS4 or GTA 4....

I think we know the answer.

And MGS4 absolutely DESTROY'S anything on Xbox 360... there are more reviews coming.....mmmmmmm I love the smell of victory.

Seriously BOTS. NOTHING. NOTHING can touch MGS4. Gears 2 will like Solid Snakes boot. This is the first reivew I've read where the review didn't say it was ont the best games ever but still absolutely praised it and called it a "Masterpiece" multiple times.

Xbox 360 owners. YOU CAN'T TOUCH THIS:

I was just messing with LenHart, waiting to see the reaction. Maverick took the award for most rabid fanboy.

9.9 is a silly score, they can't point to any flaws so the game deserves a 10/10.

I would of played this game even if it got a 2/10. You losers care about review scores like it is what makes or breaks a game. Xbox and Sony fanboys are simple, fu**ing drones that scream for acceptance on the interweb.

And note to Maverick, I am a 360 owner, and I will be touching MGS 4 cause I am not a poor little fanboy stuck playing on one console. I Have choice, you should try it sometime.

MGO was not included in the review build of the game. I think they will review it separately due to this but will not say I agree with it. It is inclusive to the MGS experience and should have accounted for the final score.

it'll be a great game. stop complaining?? after all, its you whos going to be playing the game. who cares what other people rate it. i will probably pick it up in the future, just in no hurry. i am not a fan of the series.. the only reason for this is i have never played any of them. seeing the hype and reviews for mgs4 are so much ill probably get into it.

that differentiate by a decimal point are questionable. Those decimal point difference is so subjective to the users.

Whats to say that there is a difference between 9.8 and 9.9.

Fine. 9.9 a near perfect score and in my honest opinion should be the HIGHEST score a game should be able to receive. Simply put, a game scored to the perfection of 10 (for the wide audience) should never exist, and can never exist. The only way games should be given 10s is when the game is scored within our hearts, and we feel compelled to remember it as the greatest game that you yourself have ever played. That feeling that you get from a great game is personal, irrefutable and no one has the right to say otherwise.

9.9 for MGS4 is not acceptable when GTA4 got 10/10. GTA4 is full of glitches and popins in both the PS3 and x360 versions

The graphics of GTA4 are super disappointing

I am sorry i cant accept this 9.9 . I am disappointed. There is no way MGS4 gets a 9.9 when GTA4 has got 10

I think the whole question of a game not being able to score a 10 i ridiculous... if a game gets a 10, it represents the epitome of gaming at that moment in time... few months down the line, the game wouldn't have gotten the 10, but miss out.

but enough about that, i agree with some ppl.. where was the MGO in the review? why does last appeal not include that, or, at the least, even finish off its summary.

GTA4 is on both PS3 and X360 and also coming to PC. Most of the copies of gTA4 have been traded in for MGS4 preorder/ have been inserted into preorders for MGS4 PS3 bundle (i did it myself)

MGS4 will be getting GOTY from GAMesradar, CVG and all other gaming websites except a selected few US websites

Kojima is a master.

Expect a similar score from IGN US site
They really painted themselves into a corner by giving GTA 4 a 10. They made a big deal about it being their first 10 given out in 7 years. They will not give out two 10s in the span of a month and a half.
Empi  +   2810d ago
I dunno how GTA4 got a 10 it doesnt deserve it. MGS4 deserves it.
Obama  +   2810d ago
Mgs4 is one of those games that is not overated. While 9.9 is a good score, mgs4 still receives lower score than gta4, which is overated.

Not that I am unhappy about the score, but mgs4 should get a 10 like gta4 did from ign given that it is a much better game.
End Of war 2  +   2810d ago
tbh ive played to many AAA games gears of war mass effectbioshock,halo 3 its good to see ps3 atleast gwets `1 AAA titles this gen they deserve it but atleast this cocnfirms mgs4 wil nevet get goty as gta rated higher.
LenHart  +   2810d ago
Bioshock and Mass effect are on PC and coming to PS3. All of them are overrrated. If you want to play a nice game then play Uncharted and Ratchet --true AAA games not overrrated crap

If you want to play an awesome FPS then you should play Resistance. Resistance 2 will tear away Gears 2 in Fall

Gears is as bad as Halo 3. However MGS4 alone is bigger than x360's entire gaming library

as for who gets GOTY

COD4 got GOTY from many sites despite scoring lower than Bioshock and Halo3 .opposite is also true

MGS4 will get GOTY from atleast 60% of websites

It will be getting GOTY from LEVEL,OPM,PSM and any other website which reviewed it except a few US websites which dont count

Agreed Obama
There are games that ARE overscored, GTAIV and Halo 3 being good examples (though I own and play both frequently). This, however is no overrated experience.

Gears plays nothing like Halo 3. please don't speak of things that you have absolutely no knowledge of.

Lasting Appeal - 9.5???????????
30 hour game plus the fabulous MGO =/= 9.5

Still think this should have been the second ten of the year from ign but there is always the us ign team who tend to be more lenient than uk.

You should be.
SnakeDiesinMGS4  +   2810d ago
Looks like Raiden will be taking over in MGS5 since Snake "passes" the torch to him right before Snake dies.
LenHart  +   2810d ago
too bad
you wont be able to enjoy this game

the best game of 2008 ..rather you will be playing crappy games on your XBREAK3FIXME
Maverick_  +   2810d ago
We don't konw if Sanke dies. If he does it will be mind blowing though.

Either Way. Raiden will never lead in a MGS game again. He's almost like a little side plot.

LMAO @ pp ^^^^^^^^^^^^

WTF is wrong with you. Quit spoiling the game for everyone. Be aware spoilers are a BANNABLE offense

I also fear that 1up may give mgs4 a low score given that...
Britjadg  +   2809d ago
wouldn't surprise me.

i remember being properly shocked by that article.
quite frankly 1up shouldn't be in the business if thats how they handle things professionally. personally i dont think they should be given a copy of MGS4

stupid review

"hey this is THE PS3 game we cant let it get a 10/10 lets take one pt off.
supergamer  +   2810d ago
quote from the review:

"If you’ve ever loved any one of the Metal Gear games, or any moments from the series, there will come a moment when MGS 4 will send your spirits soaring. If you’ve loved them all, well then there’ll be many, many more. It’s a masterpiece. But forget you read that. Go play it and find out for yourself. Because it’s the kind of game that, if you play it after being told it’s a masterpiece, might end up disappointing you because of the hype. So forget the hype. Forget that it’s a magnificent, ground-breaking, masterpiece. Just play it, and enjoy a dazzling, heart-lifting, voyage of discovery."

wow just wow this game is a MASTERPIECE!
