Famitsu Reviews MGS4 .... 40/40

Neogaf: "Only seven games so far have received perfect scores. They are listed in chronological order:

1. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (1998, Nintendo, for Nintendo 64)
2. Soulcalibur (1999, Namco, for Dreamcast)
3. Vagrant Story (2000, Square Co., Ltd., for PlayStation)
4. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (2003, Nintendo for Nintendo GameCube)
5. Nintendogs (2005, Nintendo, for Nintendo DS)
6. Final Fantasy XII (2006, Square Enix, for PlayStation 2)
7. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (2008, Nintendo, for Wii)"

Ruliweb: "Quality and Volume is astounding. Fans will like it. Newbies are welcomed through many friendly systems.
Even Gamers that are bad at action games need to play it. MGS Online is included. Cant see a single flaw

Espionage Action and Bossbattles are Intact. Buying Stuff and custumizing is fun
The Cutscenes are astounding and there are many of the,
Online Play is included which is nice

I think there are a little too many cutscenes
Yet You will watch them till the end
Many Extra Content
The Online plays like the main game
A lot of replayability

Octocamo is easy to use
Dont have any problems with the quality of the cutscenes
Too many characters. You will need to play the previous games
Online play is unique" (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) 10/10

@chaosatom333 ...........i couldn't agree more
off-topic: and i just have to say, as a young black male living in the US, i can't begin to describe the feeling i have tonight. i, along with my friends and family, never thought i'd live to see the day when a black person (male or female) would have a real shot at the presidency. this is truly a historic day.

on-topic: MGS4 IS THE SH!T.........good night

9.9 from ign. which would have been a 10 if they didn't waste it on gta4.

and a 40/40 from famitsu

ATLRoAcH  +   2142d ago
I'm sure...
...MGS4 deserves this score. I haven't played it but I'm confident. A true accomplishment.

(side note)

I'm really happy about Obama winning. He deserves it because in my opinion he'll make a better president than anyone else who ran/ is running. I don't want another run of the mill republican to be president . I've never been inspired by any president/presidential candidate like I am by Obama. A true accomplishment.

I'm white. I'm voting for him. I know what you're saying though.

This is why i quit going by review's anymore. People can't put truth into there reviews anymore. Super Smash Brother's for the wii, Perfect Score. Give me a break. I know MGS4 is not perfect cause i played the beta. I would deduct 15 point's from the review cause of the multiplayer being so bad "IMO".

@theKiller = Would you have thought it would have gotten any lower on sony paid site's? Most people does not go by review's anyway's i know quite a few people that played the beta and canceled there preorder including myself.

Now we can all hold hands & just love each other!" - The gist of the imbicile posters above me.

Obama is a phony,a mirage,a hologram,etc...
Same movie, different actor.
You imbiciles never learn. There's gotta be some type of secret mass hypnosis government program going on here because it's baffling to see how stupid people are. You push aside people like Nader & Paul because the media tells you these candidates are not worthy of being considered.
Nader or Paul can win if you put them in the PRESEDENTIAL DEBATES [not party primaries]SIDE BY SIDE those selfish,traitorous scum like McCain, Hilary or Obama. Only retards bother to really pay attention to the Democrat/Republican primaries.Who gives a s_it, you know both parties are gonna choose some greedy elitest/imperialist bastitch.

The media didn't talk enough about Obama's
links with a hateful church or the fact that Obama is friends with a terrorist sympathizer. The media is just as happy as everyone is about there being a black president, quite possibly that they gloss over the scary details about this man. This is a gaming site and I am sure what I say here is not going to be enough to sway the votes, but I'm gonna say it anyways. Here is one of many links.

http://newsbusters.org/blog...

We can go so far as his church leader and that should have been a deep enough warning sign for people to start doing a little more research. I'm sorry, but I am not voting for Barrack Hussein Osama...its ironic that his name is so closely tied to a dictator's name and also the man who helped strategize the destruction of the twin towers. Anyways, what I was going to say is I won't vote for Obama.. not because of his color, but because of what he really is. A friend of the Weather Underground terrorists organization.

There are some independents that want to help the US get off its dependency of oil.. something our government should have done years ago.. and also there are independents who wish to shrink the size of the useless government we have today. The "mainstream" runners, Obama and McCain would like larger government. Our government already wastes billions too many dollars today and doesn't invest it well, under Obama's and McCain's watch its going to be worst. Anyways, thats my two cents.
MikeGdaGod  +   2141d ago
@CumQuats
you know, this really isn't the place to really discuss such matters and my earlier comment was more of an emotional response since nothing like this has ever happen before in our country. but let me just respond to your comment because you seem a bit misguided.

while i agree that we should have more emphasis on other parties besides the main two, using Nadar and Paul in your example doesn't really help your cause.

Nadar is a great man and i strongly agree with many of his views and policies, but the truth of the matter is that he's had his time. for years he's run and put his views out for everyone to hear. he's been on every talk show and in almost every magazine speaking about his views and policies since i was little. the truth is people won't vote for him in large numbers and THAT's why he's lost every time he's put a bid in for the white house. that being said i do think he could be a good president.

Ron Paul on the other hand, is a different story. while i agree with a few of his policies, he's not as great as you might believe. if you do some research on him you'll realize why he'll never have a real shot at the presidency, some of this policies are just plain crazy. and maybe if you did pay attention to this most recent presidential race, you'd realize he WAS in the debates (and made the most sense out of all the Republicans ). i know you said presidential debates, but if that was the case, it would mean there would only be him and someone else. and they have to be able to out debate everyone else first.

you say Obama is a phony. i say he is our only hope. you have to face reality. out of Hillary, McCain, and Obama who do you think would do the most to put our country back on track? certainly not McCain, and Hillary has shown that the things the Republicans have been saying about her for the last few years has some truth to it. as a soon to be college graduate in the field of electrical engineering, i'm excited in his ideas about bringing jobs back to America and helping people that really need it.

i could go on for days, but what i really find funny is that the person calling other people imbeciles, can't even spell it! LOL

@kevin1122...let me just say Obama has accomplished quite alot

he wasn't born with a silver spoon like most of the people in our government these days, he came from truly humble beginnings. he graduated from Harvard Law and was the first black president of the Harvard Law Review. he taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School. he's worked as a community activist. he's the first black person to be elected to the Illinois Senate. now he's the first black man to receive the Democratic Presidential Nominee. i could keep going but again this is the place, i just couldn't let it slide when you claim he hasn't accomplished anything. that's just a flat-out lie, or sour grapes.

oh, and just one more thing, he writes the majority of his own speeches. just so you know.

@Bloodwar......seems like you've been drinking a little too much of the Bush kool-aid.

that whole Weather Underground terrorists organization is nothing more than fear mongering. along with the "Barrack Hussein Osama" bullsh!t. i just happy to see that people no longer fall for that. it's more than obvious that people won't be to be talked to like children anymore. face it, its over for you. it will take more than petty mudslinging to stop this train. if thats the best you and them can do, this will be an easy election win for Obama.

There you go scottie/Mike
That'll shut 'em up. Obama does write almost all of his speeches. I can't believe Kevin said that on the spot he says dumber things than Bush, thats just wrong. When he does interviews and is asked questions on the spot he always has clever answers. Obama is a very smart man. He isn't stupid at all. I think Obama will be great when it comes to foreign relations. The fact that so many countries outside the US like Obama is a very good thing. He has handled all the sh!t thrown at him with grace and kept a cool head. Those are qualities we need in a president. Anyway, I bet most of the Obama haters never even gave him a chance. They see him on TV and just change the channel.

I'm really excited about Obama running for president. I can't wait until he proves to everyone just how good a president he can be.

You should be double proud scottie (if you could even be any prouder). Hes also a hometown hero for you.

lonestarmt  +   2141d ago
actually obama doesn't write most of his own speeches. FYI. Also anyone who says McCain is big government is wrong. He is a conservative. Which means less government. Do you guys know politics? He is for less government spending and less government involvement. I don't really like either two people running but abeam is a fraud. He wants to impose the highest tax increase in decades. He wants to put restrictions on everything including what temputare you keep your house at. You are all sheep. He went to a church that was anti-US and said things racist remarks just like the KKK always say but on the other side of the coin. He was friends with a terrorist that said america deserved 9/11 and wished more happened. There is a crime lord in chicago who is on trail for murder that has donated tons of money to the obama campaign. He gave only 1% (lowest out of congressmen)of his income to charity while McCain and Clintion gave 13% last year. For God sakes people he has got in trouble twice for saying a speech that another congressmen said seven years ago word for word. His whole catch phrase yes we can he stole from bob the builder. He got in trouble three weeks ago for saying he had to been to all 57 states in america. He does great speeches, but whenever you ask him hard questions he whines and says the media is picking on him and has no real answer. There is even a video about his wife who spoke at that church that he goes to yet doesn't agree with what that racist paster or had no idea he felt that way even though he said the man was like family to him. He said his dad liberated a concentration camp in WWII execpt the camp that he said he did was actually freed by the russians. lol What pisses me off is he actually says just as much stupid stuff Bush says (at least bush knows there are only 50 states in america), the only difference is your all blind and the media wants him to win so you never hear it.

find me voting for Obama, he STINKS of socialism and big government.

Ron Paul wants to undo all that, that's why he's seen as crazy by people brought up with a mindset that dependence on government is as American as apple pie. It's not, in fact it's the very anthithesis of what America is all about.

I wipe my @ss with all these "constitutional scholars" that only push for more government. That is the definition of a traitor to the founding fathers if there ever was one.

@Lenhart
I don't mean to get pollitical but democrats always talk about bush McCain and republicans as "EVIL" my question is why? what did they do to you? I mean what about the UN resolutions that almost forced us into the war in Iraq? we are making progress there so why does Obama want to pull out of iraq?
Zeevious  +   2141d ago
Syanara - It's because you are a YoYo
So is everyone else, because a two party system is fundamentally flawed.

WHY?
Everyone in the Republican party votes along Republican lines.
Everyone in the Democratic party votes along Democratic lines.

You are in a two party dictatorship...not a democracy.

...Being jerked back and forth between two choices, diverting your attention from real issues and the fact that you have no real choice at all.

That's why you're a YoYo. Unfortunately, so is everyone else.

Oh, and 40/40 on Famitsu IS incredible!
syanara  +   2141d ago
@1.13
I was not commenting on the fact that this country has a two party system or anything at all I was commenting that why does so many people hate bush?

from here it looks like you would be the YoYo because you replied with something that had little to do with what I was saying and was very far from the point of my comment.

BUT to get to your point
if you think the two party system is flawed what do you prefer? multi-party? or single-party? or do you want to create a whole different government all together. I think out of the others two party would be your best bet because it goes by people's general views, if your views are more republican you would probably vote republican and vise versa for democrats and since the balance between dems and republicans is soo even it only takes a handful of people to change the balance. although that could be a problem too since there are soo many people who can't switch sides or can't stand to be proven wrong. but I belive its better than any other way. but you could be right in away because our fore fathers talked about the dangers of having political parties but much can change becuase back in the day all republicans used to democrats and vise versa at least that is my opinon

Zeevious  +   2140d ago
Sure about that?
You didn't say why do so many people hate bush, you said DEMOCRATS. The statement alone proves my point.
You commented on the symptom, I identified the cause.

It's either You/Republicans or THEM/Democrats...

You have no other choice. Neither do they. You have to hate each other and you do.

A multi-party system of a minimum of 3-5 parties would insure no SINGLE-party stranglehold and all the parties would be forced to work together, be accountable to the people and not simply serve themselves or their sponsors.

Want another prime example of the fundamental flaw in two parties endlessly bickering back and forth, stalemating issues and failing to serve the public (not corporate lobbyists) needs?

The fact that the US government & even the military is split into a minimum of 3 'parties' ... So no one segment has too much control.

You took the term 'YoYo' personally but I used the term euphemistically, while your reply had an entirely different meaning.
To be clear...if you do in fact blindly support any party without question, you ARE a YoYo, in every meaning.

I personally do not believe that a system where you have two choices, consistently coming down to the 'lesser of two evils' and where we waste over a BILLION dollars just for the process ... works.

Think of where the US & the World would be if instead of perpetually fighting or pitting one party against another we actually supported actual democracy.
Not by the Corporation, for the Lobbyist, or by the [Party-Name], for the [Party-Name] but actually by the People, for the People.

Gee, where have I heard that before?

.

I've sent this privately to continue the discussion there, if not here.
I can appreciate your perspective, and I'm not yanking your string ... I simply do not agree with it.

Editor A
An overwhelming amount of quality and volume. Thanks to a lot of great features, long time fans of the series and neophytes alike will be able to enjoy the game. Even if you’re not so great at action games, we really recommend you give this a try. Furthermore, the content in the Metal Gear Online mode is an excellent addition to the main story. A game with seemingly no weak points whatsoever.

Editor B
The familiar sneaking action triumphantly returns, along with boss battles full of tricks and surprises. But even more fun is the ability to purchase and customize equipment with new abilities! The popular cutscenes are also back in huge numbers, leaving you immensely satisfied. Finally, playing the online versus mode with your buddies and linking up is just too awesome!

Editor C
Within the massive amounts of cutscenes there are numerous easter eggs, mixing both the old and the new. Some parts get a little verbose and wordy, but the end is really worth it. Also, because depending on your style of play, many different gameplay elements emerge, the second straight week of play is still fun. Another great point: the Online mode’s rules and system are carried over from the main story mode (?). You’ll want to play it over and over again.

Editor D
“Octo-Cam” allows players to automatically blend in, a system easy for even beginners to understand. We have no complaints about the quality of the cutscenes at all. However, many characters from the previous games appear, so if you want to get the most out of the story, you’ll need a bit of preparation. In the Online Game, modes like “Snake vs Soldiers” are truly unique to this series.

Q: wow, so why this poos3 said that?
A: again another stupid idiotic pathetic jelous xbot, you have allready eard about them, I allready mention them...don't care this guys only say crap....
kosha  +   2142d ago
Lol at poos3 already playing it and saying its crap. Also fatimusu didnt give it 10/10 they gave it 40/40 which is harder to get.

I'm sorry, but Famitsu likes weird games
as much as i want MGS4 to do great, i can't help to notice that Famitsu gave also SMASH BROS. a perfect score. that game isn't perfect, far from it and Famitsu only chooses JAPANESE games to hand out the 10's. i can only trust IGN for a somewhat decent review
morganfell  +   2142d ago
you do know famitsu is a japanese publication? and because you do not like a game you should still be able to look at it and see it's brilliance.
mirroredderorrim  +   2142d ago
Famitsu has DIVERSE taste. I usually take their reviews very seriously.

For Metal Gear Solid 4 to get a perfect score from them.. this game is a "must have" for me, more than ever. the 12th can't come soon enough.

I will play this game naked while levitating in a complete state of zen.
Big Jim  +   2142d ago
You're right, Famitsu has given some really WTF 10s. Smash Bros.? Wind Waker? NINTENDOGS for hell's sake?! Famitsu is really messed up.
mistertwoturbo  +   2142d ago
There is no such thing as a perfect game. Except Chuck Norris's game. Metal Gear Solid: Bicepts of Chuck Norris
crck  +   2142d ago
Some of their choices are weird.
But considering they have only given 7 in their history thats pretty good.

But after they gave high score to Haze...it's sort of loss it's credibility a little...

but of course MGS4 is a great game, we can see that from metacritics, so it's good that it got full score from Famitsu as well.
poopsack  +   2142d ago
whyd you lose credibility, did you ever play Haze?
badz149  +   2142d ago
actually
from a blend of reviews for Haze, it's clearly a total 'love or hate' type of game, which some will totally love it and some will totally hate it! Famitsu's score always comes from 4 separate reviewers with 10 marks each which for me, more 'accurate' and reliable compared to any 'one-man' review applied by other sites! I like their style! you know...it's always better to have 4 than just 1. btw, Kudos to Kojima for another 'epic' of next-gen gaming! MGS4 FTW!!
Timesplitter14  +   2142d ago
@ KnaveX
Did you play MGS4? Why don't you question this 10/10? Because you try too much to protect the PS3.

I am pretty darn sure MGS4 is worth this perfect score. But let's face it : Haze was a failure. It was far from being worth what Famitsu gave it.

I played Haze and it was a 7/10. Maybe even 6.5/10. Not that great, but not extremely terrible as the reviews would have you believe.

And yes there was a huge "WTF" with the famitsu and 34/40 Haze score.
NDN_Shadow  +   2142d ago
Maybe the Japanese voice acting was good.
A common complaint I heard of HAZE was the horrid voices.
poopsack  +   2142d ago
i know haze wasnt worth that high a score, but it wasnt trash either thats what I think, no need to attack me. you seem to have me confused with some FBs here, wrong guy. Looking at your username I can see why u would jump to see someone defend Haze, there there buddy. Its time will come.

Famitsu is not FPS players, thats the only thing you cant trust from them
LenHart  +   2142d ago
everyone is giving MGS4 a perfect scores
Famitsu are not FPS fans

However they are strict reviewers when it comes to judging games like ACTION ADVENTURE

arakouftaian  +   2141d ago
well i play the haze demo
and if halo 3 got many 9s-10s why haze cant get a few hight score its kind of just like halo for sure haze does not deserve the s s they give them maybe 7s - or 8- or 8.5s. the game its not great but its ok anyways this will be my 1 mgs that i will buy n play i hope i enjoy it. i have tray the old ones n never got it but i dirint give a chance before just play it for few min
Kleptic  +   2141d ago
I said it the day they posted that Haze score...Japanese people do not understand first person shooters...they loved haze, and look how that turned out...

If they review any more shooters...just basically assume the game is the opposite of what they said...if they say it sucks, its probably legendary...if they say its one of the best of the year, its probably a rental at best...

the Japanese DO understand MGS though...there is no doubt MGS4 will be one of the best games of all time...

poopsack  +   2142d ago
yeah for Qore they specifically put in their title "sony announces pay for demos Qore". Boy do I hate them.
morganfell  +   2142d ago
i can't stand them. the printed and article called "lowest mgs4 score yet" that's fine as long as there was a "lowest halo 3 score yet" or "lowest gta4 score yet."

over at neogaf they were slapping kotaku around the day before because everyone knows they are like that. they got called on the carpet this morning in that same qore thread by a guy and the mod immediately jumoed at him. the guy fired back and told him the entire web looks at you guys as sony haters. ever wonder why? they had no answer for that. they were tagged as sony haters for a reason. they are.

wangdiddy82  +   2142d ago
Famitsu is one of the only gaming websites you can trust these days..
Famitsu and game informer. All the other sites have done a lot of fishy stuff these last couple of years..

anyway this game will be amazing.. If you own a ps3 buy this game and if you dont own a ps3.. Buy a ps3 and this game.. Bottom line..
Veryangryxbot  +   2142d ago
Famitsue
Famitsu: 40/40
IGN UK: 9.9/10
OPM: 10/10

And if you read all the so called 9/10s they all deducted points for weird reason. Negatives fans would actually call positive. So those scores dont matter.

They arshould have all been 10/10 but fanboyism and pocket filling practises robbed this game from a 10/10.

Luckily there are still magazines we can trust.

@Veryangryxbot
i feel sorry for u xbot u must be dieing now for not having a ps3(sarcasm).

yeah agree with u, MS corrupted the industry just like the PC world, they think they can get what ever they want with their money, but consumers dont fall easily, we see now ps3 is selling more software than 360 in europe and japan, and closing the gap in NA.

This game deserves at least a top 3 nomination for GOTY
Furthermore, I think that MGS IV should edge out GTA IV in terms of an overall package when it comes to choosing an award between those two.

Oh what simple mind the masses have, the other day this site reviewed NG2 and gave it 34/40, the reviews professional integrity was questioned and basically all that was typed was the same old tired bullcrap about been paid off my MS, now all of a sudden its ok when giving mgs4 a perfect 40? you Sony fanboys really are quite something, i used to love the Sony brand and i was ready to part with my money to get a ps3 until i started to read this website, now i hope the company does a sega just to p1ss you all off,
LenHart  +   2142d ago
IGN gave NG2 an 8.7
Famitsu gave it 8.5

reviews do coincide

No matter what others give NG2 got 8.7 from IGN --meaning it is a great game

IGN is the biggest WESTERN gaming website

FAMITSU is the biggest ASIAN GAMING WEBSITE

People are buying NG2 based on IGN's review.
thereapersson  +   2142d ago
You speak a LOT of gibberish, Nasim, but for once I will agree with you here on the basis that you provided an objective point and gave credit to NG2 as being a good game.
Closing  +   2142d ago
Exactly what the reaper said. Good job Nasim for once you told the unbiased truth, and almost seemed like an actual gamer.

Anyhow MGS4 will no doubt be groundbreaking, and goty imo. Can't wait.

solideagle1  +   2142d ago
today i have become PHANTOM AGREE.
but only for today. hahahaha i have given agree to all above posts and man i m exited about MGS4 but i still do not have PS3 here in Pakistan its still like 600$ and i have an internship of only 110$. so its kinda difficult with all the expenses.
i hope i will get the ps3 in the end of year. perhaps ps3 is not a problem but the games which costs here like 5000 rs equivalent to 70$. and i have missed hell lot of games perhaps after university i will get full blown up job then "time" will be restriction.
man there are many problems here. why dont sony launch PS3 here and games here? hehehehe
back to topic this game is worth the 40/40 or 10/10 or 100/100 or 1000/1000 how much u give points its low for this masterpiece. i have played all the MGS except 2d metal gears. i have heard that in subsistence it is included?
i will try to give bubbles to everyone if a news like this come on N4G thats a promise.
thanx
