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."
