ThreeSpeech: Metal Gear Solid IV. Hands on

ThreeSpeech writes: "Last month, Three Speech was held captive in a Paris hotel by Konami and forced to play their new PS3-exclusive Metal Gear Solid IV: Guns Of The Patriots for three days solid. It's a dirty job, but someone's got to do it!

As everyone who's familiar with the ten-year game franchise will know, the Metal Gear games centre around the tough, genetically-modified super-soldier Solid Snake. The first MGS introduced tactical play, sneaking and complex, immersive storylines into console gaming when it came out on the PSOne in 1998. Now Snake is back for the next gen of Sony console, and it's promising amazing things.

Watching the movie-like credits roll at the start gives you a sense of how the power of the PS3 is being utilised. The game's graphics are beautiful, its animations seamless and its physics hyper-realistic. Creator Hideo Kojima has taken the terrain and weather effects that he first mastered on MGS 2 to the next level. As military trucks roll into a middle-eastern warzone, dust hits the screen, debris blows about and it feels as though you're right in the thick of it." (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3)
