GamersReports: Metal Gear Solid 4 Review

GamersReports writes: "Well, here we are, folks. The game that is supposed to be the end-all, be-all of action titles is about 8 hours away from being released, and we know you are wondering all about it. The game we have all be drooling over with videos and media since way back at the Tokyo Game Show in 2005 is now here. This review will certainly not be your run-of-the-mill fare, I will try to keep the spoilers and specifics to a minimum because, let's face it, half the fun of a Metal Gear Game is the engrossing story and figuring out just what to do. Hideo Kojima has said this is the last of Snake's adventures, and that he is more or less done with this branch of the Metal Gear tree. To that end, Kojima is surely going to wrap up almost all the loose ends that have been flapping around since all of this started, way back when on Shadow Moses island (MGS on the PSX). You will see a ton of familiar faces, and some you may not even recognize, but almost every character that had any significant dealings with the storyline of Metal Gear Solid makes at least a cameo in MGS4: Guns of the Patriots.

Let's get the big concern out of the way, shall we? Yes, MGS4: Guns of the Patriots is pretty much the most visually impressive game you will play to date on your Playstation 3. It is right up there with the Xbox360's magnum opus, Gears of War. Consider the bar raised, and the gauntlet thrown. The graphics in the game are gritty and real, and it really makes you think that someone like Hideo Kojima should be a movie director instead. That is what Hideo does, folks, he tells a story using game consoles instead of a movie screen, and I like it just fine. We will discuss the actual specific graphical details a bit later." (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) 9.5/10

Uncharted raised the graphics bar so they're wrong already.

actually a lot of games like uncharted, mass effect, bioshock beat geow in terms of graphics

right up there with Gears of war? no disrespect to that game, but this, for me, blows it out of the water

I laughed when I read that too. Gears looked great, no offense, but MGS4 looks way better.
I LOVE my xbox  +   2670d ago
I have to say...
this is one of the greatest games ever made. Absolutely stunning.

I dont get it. I thought everyone knew uncharted looked way better than GEOW. Yh and this is the best graphics to date on any console (not pc)
Euphrate  +   2670d ago
Well, I'm getting the game in 1.5 hours
So, I don't care about reviews

well if toilet paper sold more than gears than its definitely sold more than uncharted ;D

and yes toilet paper is good!

Knock a few marks off this review score because it's from a site that gave Gaiden2 8.8 lol - clearly only worth a 6 or 7 in the minds of Sony fans

Anyway like it really matters
goldenzealot  +   2670d ago
yeah i guess
gears 2 scored higher on metacritic though but then theres the whole microsoft paying off reviewers and stuff. ive heards o many rumours that i dont know where to begin
Aclay  +   2670d ago
MGS4 is finally here!!!!!!!!
joydestroy  +   2670d ago
yeah, it's in my car...waiting for me to get off work so Snake can BREAK OUT!
J@D  +   2670d ago
yeah, my copy its on the store waiting for me to be pick up on the first hour on the morning.
IQUITN4G  +   2670d ago
True thewhoopimen but they are quite different beasts to be fair.

Some folk just don't like the slower start stop nature that is an MGS and others probably rate Gow as quite naff in comparison.Both games shouldn't really be compared.

I get the impression MGS4 will sell better than it has ever done before but then most certainly will Gears2.

The FPS rate also is very inconsistent. I have personally witnessed it go from 60fps, focusing on Snake and nothing else, to 15fps, focusing on 20+ enemies in a courtyard. The jump makes for custscenes that are a bit herky jerky at times.

Whoever doesnt have this game, doesnt know what next gen is :)

gears of war is old news
Uncharted blew that shi& out the water.. I didnt think MGS4 would be better looking than uncharted but i was wrong.. MGS4 is freaking beautiful.. Dont watch the videos online.. It doesnt do the game justice.. You have to see this game on a hdtv.. It will blow you away..
