Plus: Delighful action, exciting moments, wonderful bosses, cool design, great sound, good tempo Minus: A little too long cutscenes, 'lengthy' interruptions
yeah i can see them having trouble finding faults in the game. why not try for example no sixaxis, install time, a ps3 exclusive, no spanish subtitle and other variety of things, that GTAiv does PERFECTLY. /sarcasm.
faults that its a long game..are you serious im glad its long i want to savour every minute and thank you kojima for giving me my MONEYS WORTH
This is Metal Gear Solid and its obviously game for the Hardcore fans. I can't imagine MGS without the long amazing cutscenes. This is without a doubt my favorite series...there is nothing even remotely close to MGS and its type of heroism, Epicness and storytelling. I will have it on day one. :0
LOL is that the only fault you could find Lamers
Long Game? Are you... Pfft, not even gonna waste energy on it.
Here is the comment for every review site like that: http://kotaku.com/5012054/p...
People that play MGS play it for the cut-scenes, they are rewards for you endavours. Looks like reviewers are just copying each other. Journalism really has seen it's downfall :(
Alot of people don't play MGS just for the cutscenes. Myself included.
If God Of War can have great cutscenes that aren't 45+min long than so can MGS. I bet around 40%-50% of all the people who have bought MGS1,MGS2,MGS3(& are gonna buy MGS4) are people who think this is a great series but think the cutscenes are a little too much. "You don't deserve it"? Sorry but if only the hardcore MGS fans were allowed to buy this game you bet your ass this game probably wouldn't even turn a profit. So you can stick your hardcore MGS fan badge up your ass because this game wouldn't be as big as it's going to be w/out the average MGS fans. Remember, they're are plenty of good movies out there that would've been considered great if only the editor &/or director would've cut out 20-30 minutes. I'll still buy the game & probably enjoy it but am not going to get a hardon like many of you probably will. You guys are like a f_cking cult. You can't find any fault w/ this series or Kojima.
for the bad: cut scenes are good WTF? does that even make sense lol
makes sense though. Can't wait to play it!!
might want to put your title in your actual comment people will attack you if the only read the main comment lol
the attacks of those who can't read so good.
It is bad translation. original text"Minus:Väl långa mellansekvenser, långa spelavbrott "/ actually they say very long and LONG pauses in between play time. I dont know how better to translate it. In short they think cut scenes are way to long and it takes you out of the experience for far to long.
Really?!?! Long game??! Jeez... That is a minus??! Really??! Really??!
interupting cut scene could take you out of the flow of the game. Not that I have ever felt that way while playing the MGS series. I can see it being a possiblity but the emotion and story of MGS is so rich that I it all just icing on the cake.
Wow, I want to read their review of any of the Final Fantasy games. They must really suck by those standards!
If the only problem with this game is the long cutscenes, then I am going to have a helluva time with this game.
It's a Google translation, it's probably saying something like "Large number of cut scenes, even though it is a long game"
I'm Danish and it says: To long cutscenes, and to many interruptions. [EDIT:] Swede was faster!
are bad i wonder, what score did gears get? these sites are aggravating the crap out of me for taking away points for being to good a game -_- i officially hate reviews...for life
But dude they still love the game, 9 is an AWESOME score. Gamereactor gave Gears of War 10 BTW.
That's why it has a 9.5 meta score right ------------- Metascore based on reviews 70% of playstation magazines, 25% of unknown sites and 5% of legit reviewers (8 from Edge, 8 from Eurogamer)? Fantastic metascore!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow, so IGN is no longer legit? What the hell have you been smoking?
Really Tronad0r, the only person making you look like an idiot is yourself.
Jealous very much? Seriously some games you just dont rip on, that goes for both xbox and sony fans...
I think its bad translation.
Believe me, it's bad ;)
you can skip the cut scenes and they show you a flash back to sum it up for you. its brilliant, i personally am going to sit down wit some popcorn and watch the cut scenes though, but you DONT have to watch them and still know whats going on.
since when long cutscene becomes a con...boy o boy, this game is for fans and fans knw mgs is full of long cutscences and codecs talk..but still they score it low coz of tht. thts cheap man......which MGS fan consider it con...disagree me...
Reviewers are looking more and more like women... They always find something to nag about and they are impossible to please.
good job. whoooop
I know a place that sells 80gig PS3...new.. 300 flat. holla at me
Ugh.. I'm ashamed you're Canadian.
The minus is supposed to be: "A little too long cutscenes, 'lengthy' interruptions". A mod/admin could prolly fix this.
review of the game :) im sure they are either gonna give it 9 or 10. www.gamereactor.no i think that we can expect the review tommorow or the day after.
*waves magic wand* it is done! If Konami thinks there's a need for movie-length cut-scenes, then I look forward to finding out why. edit: since morganfell misunderstood I'll clarify: long cutscenes? then they likely have good reason for it.
And again you prove your awesomeness :)
"the cutsenes are too long" well it's nice to know that the only con is a pro for fans :)
It´s free =P
Graphics: 9 Spelbarhet (gameplay): 10 Ljud (Audio): 10 Hållbarhet: Sustainability: 9 I guess they dont give halfpoints..
Gameplay is a 10 and they ranked it down to a 9? What the?
And since it´s two 10 and two 9 it should atleast have been a 9.5, especially since the gameplay was one of the 10.
@ catastrophe because it was made for mgs fans, not non mgs fans. despite all the items that make the game more approachable it remains a game for the metal gear fans as kojima has stated many times. ng2 is a niche game and should have been reviewed by someone that better understands it's appeal. not a game reviewer. not just a game reviewer that likes fighting games but by a reviewer that likes ninja gaiden. mgs4 is no different. it is another specialized niche game, not cod4 (thankfully). here is one of the main points I have repeatedly tried to make about reviews. how would gta4 have scored had it been reviewed by someone not a fan of that genre, say a military realism strategy gamer? i don't think many sites have such people but there is the question. would it be right to have that person review gta4? why not? that is exactly what these sites are doing with a niche game called MGS4. and make no mistake, it is a niche game. you either get it or you do not. so in all fairness to get a score where a title is given equal footing it requires a certain reviewer that loves that genre and niche. as i stated on here before, you can always tell a metal gear true fan. when someone says, "the cut scenes are really long. like 90 minutes." the metal gear fan says "cool!"
I completely agree. You can see the difference in reviews: for example, Eurogamers gave the MGS4 review to someone who detests the series while PSW gave it to someone who loved the series. The results are clear; Eurogamer gave it the lowest score it has recieved thus far while PSW wrote an incredibly enthusiastic review, albeit without a number. However, this doesn't always hold true. The PTOM review was written by Rob Smith, a man who admittedly only played MGS2 on the PC, and he ended up loving the game and giving it a 10/10. It ultimately may boil down to how willing the reviewer is to give the game a chance.
agree,my taught exactly
hmm, I think you misunderstood my comment. It was intended as "long cutscenes? then they have good reason for it."
:) rgr on that catastrophe.
so this tornad0r guy think that mgs4 will be a disappointment for ps3 fans? yep ,good luck with that xboy!!!!!!!!
Its official. PS3 games are now ranked on a scale of 1 to 9. Aww its too long.... RETARDS....
This is how the real review looked like, but gamebotreactor didn't want it to be too obvious. Plus: Delighful action, exciting moments, wonderful bosses, cool design, great sound, good tempo Minus: A PS3 Exclusive
The con is not big enough to bring it down a point. Shouldn't a 9.5 round to a 10? It's simple math.
The same magazine gave that braindead shooter Gaylo 3 10/10. For now I'm ashamed of being a swede.
I agree with you now!!
I dont care if reviewers rate it a 10, and I dont care if they rate it an 8, either way I will enjoy this awesome greatness in 10 days.
Gamereactor is a X360 lover, in their magazine, in the previews sections, even if the game is multiplatform they add a "Kommer till X360" (Coming to X360)...this is found in almost every number since the PS3 launched in Europe, they started adding "Coming to PS3" too for multiplatform titles in the latest numbers after some comments from readers but before that, you could only find that "Coming to PS3" couple of times in 10 numbers (and for crappy games: Turok and Viking:BfA) against 10 times for the X360 Take a look and see what I mean http://www.flickr.com/photo... So a 9/10 from them for a PS3 game is actually a 10/10...not that the world care much about this site nor do I as MGS4 is a need more than a VG for me, but since I've seen reviews from Gamereactor for PS3 games posted here I thought it was a nice idea to provide some info...I don't care about what they think about the PS3 and neither you should...they gave RFOM 6/10, Heavenly Sword 7/10, Eye of judgment 6/10 and Ratchet & Clank :TDO got a 7/10 from the Editor of the Magazine...go figure
Well the way I see it, if it makes a so-called PS3 hater give the game a 9/10, then they succeeded with guts and glory. Meaning, Konami didn't have to give them a free special edition PS3 and a bunch of swag along with it just to get a good score. *looks at Halo 3*
-Hey swedish guy you cant give -1 score because of amazing cutscenes you amateur -No wonder I never heard about this lame magazine
that is BS how u gonna take a whole point off for cut scenes when most people like them.
how can some review this game in such a short time frame? I dont know why reviewers are rushing through this game to get out there reviews.. doesnt do the game justice at all..
i really hate gamereactor
hahaha the translation is bad, very bad.
