GWN reviews Mateal Gear Solid 4

Kris Rosado reports:

''Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots marks the final chapter in the series, bringing a close to a story over two decades old. The iconic hero of the series, Solid Snake, has now aged tremendously, yet he is the only man who can complete the task at hand. Liquid Ocelot is finally making his move against the Patriots and for world domination, as Snake's final duty; he must hunt down and kill Liquid. His mission will take him all over the globe, from the heated battle scarred towns of the Middle East, to the rebel fighting torn landscapes of South America, and even the place where Snake's ordeal began.

The game is truly nothing short of a love letter from series creator, Hideo Kojima to the series' fans. It invokes the spirits of the previous games, answers all and I mean all, of the remaining questions, and closes the series in a rarely seen way that will leave the fans wholly satisfied. That being said, this game is sadly not for everyone.

While the game is very accessible for anyone wanting to give it a shot, it really is strictly aimed at the fans. The plot remains as bizarre as ever and is unfolded through the series trademark of long cutscenes, though the accusation of 90 minute scenes is grossly exaggerated, however a minor few of them do border on the 20-40 minute mark. But if there was ever a part in the game where you would need to "bring a magazine", it would be the games' install time (approx. 8 minutes).'' (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) 90/100

Install times...
are not bad. I'm not so sure about the "bring a magazine" quote. I'd rather have install times at the beginning of each act then have to pay for it throughout the entire game/each act.
