Empire Review: Metal Gear Solid 4 - 'PS3 delivers the muscle '

Using the PS3 to bring this latest instalment to life has also given Kojima the opportunity to create the most detailed and stylish world MGS aficionados have ever seen: from the sun-baked streets of crumbling middle-eastern cities to frozen arctic bases and steaming jungles, all the environments are brimming with detail and convey a unique atmosphere.

This time Kojima has also been careful to make the experience less linear and offer players multiple routes through the levels, which provide a deep sense of satisfaction by finding your own way through a maze of war-torn streets, rather than being forced down a narrow path peppered with set-piece challenges.

...that you are POG....because your avatar just proved it



LenHart3640d ago

I would rather die than buy an x360

most people would do the same as me .

Only an abnormal would purchase an x360 since it has no games except Gears2 which is available on PC too

Breakfast3640d ago (Edited 3640d ago )

That would suck if you bought a would die, and shortly after the xbox would die, too...

...good thing itll cremate your body, from the scorching heat. Mr. and Misses LenHart wouldnt have to do a funeral.

I wonder if MGS4 will be topped by any other game for the remainder of this gen.

Xakep3640d ago (Edited 3640d ago )

No one else will be wrapping up any 20 year running stories so, not sure.

Breakfast3640d ago

God of War...will trounce -all- in its path.

theKiller3640d ago (Edited 3640d ago )

i told u so(am talking to the people who is offended by this score) that MGS4 will be the game of the decade, and sorry 360 cant handle it and if it did it will only ruin it and degrade it, i remember MS PR saying a year ago after DMC4 announcement of going to 360, i will quot him "DMC4 now and MGS4 and FF13 is next" ha ha, he was making the 360 owners dream of unreal dreams and now they say its boring with its long cut-scenes and too complicated story, but last year they were dieing to get it!!! hypocrites!!!!



GOD OF WAR 3 will be huge but not as huge as MGS4, because MGS4 have fans from 20 years ago, and huge fanbase for a decade, so this is the game of the decade!

Surfman3640d ago

I think the Final Fantasy games with the SquareEnix Army will hurt. Alot.

znu3640d ago

lol, the problem is 360 fans can't insult MGS4

I mean, they can diss any game, the console, even the people themselves but nit MGS4, not even
have you ever heard any fan make fun of MGS4? cause i haven't they just casually avoid it.

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

sonarus3640d ago

As much as i love GOW, it won't be as good a game as MGS.

LaChance3640d ago (Edited 3640d ago )

and the big sites havnt delivered their reviews yet.

Next gen started 2 and 1/2 years ago.

Theres at least 4 or 5 more years to go (nobody predicted new IP's like Bioshock for instance )

@the people above: This is a MGS4 thread , exclusive game for the PS3 and you guys cant help but mention/diss the 360 !

You guys have serious problmes.I think uou guys are VERY bitter people , Its only videogames ! You should step back a bit and not take all these stuff too personal or seriously.

I mean why would I mention or diss PS3 gamers in a lets say..Fable 2 thread ?

Anyway enjoy your game.Im out to play some PES 2008 (anybody else feel this game is like a drug ? )

Xakep3640d ago

Won't be too hard then since San Andreas and Vice City topped GTA4.

decapitator3640d ago

8 Days more, seems like forever. DAY - UNO.

mikeslemonade3640d ago

The top 3 rated next gen games can be bought on PS3. GTA4, MGS4, and Bioshock. You can't say the same for any other system.

znu3640d ago

well, since two of those games are multiplatform, your arguement doesn't make sense...

360 has Halo, Gears and Fable, too. They are great games, and are viewed differently by those who play them. Some say they suck, others disagree.

PS3 also has its heavy hitters, FF, MGS, GOW, Killzone
Some will hate these games and some will love.

It's just your personal prefeference, like i like halo but its not fun unless your playing some kind of Co-op, online co-op or with another friend, probably cause i dont own it but if i did, i would rarely play it.

Same with Warhawk, its an awesome game but i just cant play it without a friend over, it just isnt the same.

Basically, everybody views games differently

CViper3640d ago

GTA4 is a product of over the head advertising and media tricks.

THe game is absolutely shallow, its nothing close to GTA SA or Vice city. The replay value is useless because its not fun. Online is great.

Metal Gear is the better game. If you've ever played one, youd know why.

Another perfect score. Kojima earned very high respect from gamers. Even 360 fanboys must admire Kojima even they don't admit here on N4G.

Surfman3640d ago (Edited 3640d ago )

Here's a deserved score.

LeSouteneur3640d ago (Edited 3640d ago )


hehe, someone disagrees with me being happy about a good review. Gotta love n4g.
