VideoGamer: Metal Gear Solid 4 Review

Metal Gear Solid is a big deal for a lot of people. Cinematic gaming probably wouldn't be where it is today if Hideo Kojima and his team hadn't brought us the original PlayStation game and for many the series stands way ahead of the pack. It's been far from a smooth ride though. Awkward controls and a convoluted, often overacted story made the PlayStation 2 games an acquired taste. The question looming over the head of MGS4, then, isn't if it'll please hardcore fans (it unquestionably does) but if Kojima has seen where the series needed improving. The fact that this is the single best PS3 exclusive released to date should answer that question for you.

Gameplay: 8
Graphics: 10
Sound 10 (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) 9/10

gameplay is an 8? w/e........IMO its a 10, yea you herd it b4 you'll here it again, MGS4 is the greatest game made to this date, story, dynamics, cut scenes, gameplay, customization, physics, oh and the water.......forget about it, its crazy real, especially when your swimming under it.

- happy gaming : )

The cinematics, as well as they turned out to be, were too much. There simply wasn't enough gameplay.

a havnt got a reply yet for my question so ill ask again which 3fixme (exclusive) game can compare with or has better ratings then mgs4???

Why does a game rating mean so much to you fanboys? A review is someone's opinion about a game. But when someone has an opinion diffrent from yours, you get pissed. Why is that?

I just don't get it
It seems like the only factor causing game play to be the lowest rated on everyones reviews is the lack thereof. However it has just as much game play time as CoD4/Halo3/GoW/Etc. Etc. Why is everyone complaining about cinematics that even though you're watching -- YOU CAN STILL INTERACT!! What other game allows you to peer through the eyes of the main character during a "cut scene"? What other game allows you to view flash backs from previous games during "cut scenes"? I just don't get it. The game play is flawless, the lack of game play seems null...why not a 10 like it deserves?
