1UP Previews Metal Gear Solid 4

Metal Gear Solid 4 arrives soon, bringing an end to the saga of Solid Snake (if not to the series itself). Many questions will no doubt be answered by this grand finale, and the storyline will doubtlessly feature plenty of tricksy twists and turns.

Still, there's some fun to be had in analyzing the game's promotional trailers and interviews with director Hideo Kojima to see just how much of the plotline we can squeeze from existing info. Needless to say, spoilers ahead -- but only those that are already public knowledge courtesy of Kojima Productions.

lots of sites are giving out reviews without even playing the MGO online! or doing nothing to little exploration when playing.

Especially since I get to submit it!

EDIT
Hey you've changed your comment; mine sounds a little out of place now. :(

1up needs to grow some balls and review the game. They keep doing previews because it is giving them site hits. They know MGS4 is hot like fire. Now review it and decide you fate. 9.5-9.0 and below...unsatisfactory. 9.0 below, worthy of some lynch mobbing

OgTheClever2981d ago (Edited 2981d ago )

Hey Sonarus, don't forget that there is still 1 and a half weeks to release.

It is possible that they haven't received a review copy yet (although they are a big and widely recognised site so this assumption may be unlikely).

Also you've got to consider that MGS4 is such a big game with so much variety that it takes at least a few playthoughs to fully comprehend the game.

sonarus2981d ago

Nah they are already reviewing it they even posted some early review impressions.

so far it all looks good except for the one guy who said splinter cell has better controls.

morganfell2981d ago

yes, but if you saw the podcast the 1uppers playing mgs were getting their butts kicked. they said the learning curve was too steep. they didn't like it. and i could care less. they will give the game an 8.5 or so.

it is a niche game for gearheads and this is what happens when people that think cod4 is the ultimate come over to mgo and try the same run and gun-no teamwork-no tactics bs. those of use that ran mgs3 mgo knew and were thrilled at what we experienced. the thinking persons tactical online game is just around the corner. basically put mgo doesn't forgive or welcome stupid people.

Kleptic2981d ago

agreed...no way 1up gives the game above an 8.5...frankly, an 8.5 would totally surprise me...

its not Halo...and its not on the 360...that more or less declares its fate...the fact that its drawing tie-ins to splinter cell from them immediately shows that this game is very far over their head...

was a pretty decent preview though...it shows they are at least aware of the questions still left in the story...so maybe there is a little hope...but 1up is excellent at finding minor quibbles with a PS3 game, and laughing all the way to the bank (literally, the amount of hits they get is out of control)...oddly though 360 games are not given the same attention for the most part (complain about minor texture pop-in in Uncharted, then briefly touch on it for Mass Effect...srsly...)...

we will see...I am a huge MGS fan, so reviews of the game were never really important to me...It would just be nice for sites obviously on MS's payroll to ignore their benefactor, and give credit where credit is clearly due...

GS will also give it 8/9 just like EUROGAMER and EDGE

However barring these 4 SONY HATERS ............most websites will give MGS4 a 10/10

MGS4 has already got 10/10 from many websites

GAMEPRO
LEVEL
MERISTATION
PTOM
PSM
PSW

+ numerous other websites would give it 10/10

LTC2981d ago

We will just have to see.
The only thing that pisses me off is that these sony hating websites count on Metacritic.

niall772981d ago

most sites havent learned that MGS is a part of MGS4 and NOT a diffrent game.

highdro2981d ago

if it gets less than a 9 then u eurogamer,edge wre all but comiting sucide because people will not be reading ur reviews any more apart from ur x box fan bois!!!!!!

Tmac2981d ago (Edited 2981d ago )

They keep doing these previews saying "it's one of the best games ever" and then Eurogamer and EDGE BOTH SAY the same thing in their previews and deliver a 8. I expect a 8.8-9.3 from 1up.

Frig, Kojima should just send out a bag of goodies like every other publisher/developer now a days and get it over with.
