Metal Gear Solid 4 Review - "gamers should be eternally grateful that such a game exists"

Gameplayer has gone live with a glowing review of mega PS3 exclusive Metal Gear Solid 4, declaring it one of the most important games ever to be released.

"In a world filled with generic shooters, bald space marines and ten a penny cliches Metal Gear Solid 4 is a light amongst the dark, proving to designers that you can do something different, that videogames can be more than a sum of their parts."

I'm tryin to play in short doses. Right now my PS3 is paused thry one of the cut scenes. Adding pause in cut scenes = best idea ever

supahbad2883d ago

I'm getting it today, ahhhhh!!! I WANT IT NOW! I'm gonna buy two copies, one to play, and one to have sex with. JK! but I really can't wait these reviews are amazing. IGN gave it a 10 so soon after gta4, and i see that as meaning that this game is a true 10 because they didn't care about their credibility, just the game. GAME OF HISTORY

sonarus2883d ago

lol they even said if they could give it an 11 they would. MGS4 is simply one of the best games ever made and gamers are lucky to get a chance to play

TheHater2883d ago

Ok, I finish playing for the day, and in the middle of Act four. going to take a two hour nap, and get back on.

Playing mgs4, i really don't want to finish the game yet, but i can't put it down either. I can't believe MGS is coming to an end, but im so happy its come to an end in such a brilliant, appropriate and legendary way

"Metal Gear Solid 4 is, by far, the most polished combination of presentation and gameplay this generation. It sets a new benchmark in terms of production values, and will blow your tiny little mind to smithereens on more than one occasion."

"The second act, set in the South American jungle, goes into Snake Eater territory – minus the frustratingly endless camouflage switches. Compared to the first act this experience is a far more linear affair, but is so brilliantly paced that you’ll barely notice or care. It’s topped off by an on rails section that would be the undoubted high point of any other game on the market – but this isn’t any other game, it’s Metal Gear Solid 4, and the best is yet to come."

Namely, a similar on rails section at the end of Act Three.

"We won’t mention too much for fear of spoiling one of the many high points of the game, but the section in question is, visually speaking, a new benchmark in gaming, a brief section of gameplay that will have you questioning just how in the hell Kojima’s coder managed to make the thing work. It will set your brain on fire, then piss on the ashes – you will be amazed, and that’s a stone wall guarantee."

Lmao @ Gears of War-------> In a world filled with generic shooters, bald space marines and ten a penny cliches Metal Gear Solid 4 is a light amongst the dark, proving to designers that you can do something different, that videogames can be more than a sum of their parts. Make no mistake about it, MGS4 is a game that pushes the medium forward, in a big way, and we as gamers should be eternally grateful that such a game exists. An undoubted masterpiece.

Yea baby!!! MGS4 said bring it on!

Another perfect 10 for MGS4. The madness continues. Xbots crying silently in a corner.

-Maverick-2883d ago

Im in ACT II and I'm I'm just loving this game. It feels like your on a huge journey to take this like Crazy Evil villian and Snake seems wayyyy more vurnerable in this game although is is still the man and has tons of heart.

DUDE I LOVE MGS4

Come on Gamespot, give it up already and throw in the 10 if you want to keep some sort of credibility (if there even is some left)..

ps360fella2883d ago

this game is simply amazing BUT the cutscenes can get annoying.

supahbad2883d ago

-Maverick-2883d ago

I don't think so whatsoever. They are on like 10 levels higher than anything else. The story and game is just wayyy better and more Epic than ANYTHING.
