Pocket-Lint: Metal Gear Solid 4 Review - 10/10 - Absolutely, positively, definitely, must-have?

Pocket-Lint writes: "After the big hoo-hah surrounding early MGS4 reviews, with Konami stopping reviewers chatting about the game in its full, a few slightly poorer scores have dampened the excitement levels a touch. The critics have still been full of praise, but there have been a few hints that Snake's legs may be showing their age.

We all know what to expect with Snake's epic tales these days. There's always going to be tonnes of sneaking about, craftily - and most importantly, quietly - taking out enemies, and lots of time spent not actually playing the game.

Hideo Kojima hasn't attempted to deviate from that tried and tested formula for the series conclusion. With 20 years worth of fans to take care of, Kojima Productions have given long-term fanatics a real treat here."

The good: An epic story, incredible opening Acts, Snake is cool as the proverbial cucumber

The bad: Some cutscenes can go on a little too long, a few bits of hokey dialogue

Verdict: As a game on its own, it's stunning in its own right. Ignore the naysayers who claim the story is dull and tedious, they're just fools. Metal Gear Solid 4 is simply fantastic (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) 10/10

Gamedaily one of the worst gaming sites with their daft articles and top 10 lists that make no sense. Then they gave MGS4 an 8/10. Sorry any reviewer that can't see MGS4 greatness simply has no opinion that can interest me. From now i disregard gamedaily reviews as well as euro gamer. Still looking at edge though:D

Giving this game a 8/10 is an absolute joke and shows you a)either didn't even see the game running on the PS3 or b) don't like the series and feel the need to pick it apart because you didn't like cutscenes. There is nothing out there like MGS4.

I've only played a little bit so far, but this game is amazing so far!

But all these numbers mean nothing but a personal evaluation from reviewers. Its the same as not every guy would judge the same girl a 10. They will all agree that she has sex appeal, but might not meet all of their expectations for a 10. And in conclusion, this is why scoring games is stupid.

I think it was written by a guy who didn't really enjoy the previous MGS series, so there was no way it was going to get a great score, it's too bad too.

MGS4 is getting some pretty big scores lately. I guess the final swan song for snake has turn out to be as epic as Sony & Kojima wanted:D

Looks like MGS 4 will settle in to a score around 9.5 out of 10.
