Buh buh cut scene and buh buh insta.. buh buh

Best Game anyone has played this generation

period

edit:

Just aimed at the tiny few that have ridiculous beefs with the title considering what it is. Its like playing an RPG and complaining that there isn't enough platforming. Just too bad.

Xplay did hit something on the head.!!!!!!!!

The long cut scenes really do replace the CODEC crap. Remember how long that used to be? Bravo Xplay. very good point. I forgot all about how long those were..

They actually said
that the cut-scenes were great.I fail to understand your comment.
Is it aimed at complaints in general or this particular review?

Great review.. sometimes Sezzler gets worked up about things
But over all he's pretty dead on in his points... He talks with confidence and that's what i like about him...

He nails all the crap that is going around about mgs4 on the net and he did it well..

I'm sure that by now whoever wasn't sure to buy the game is sure, and whoever hates the game for whatever reason will keep hating it..

No need to keep getting all worked up about the haters out there...

Best game this year (to me best game i've ever played).. End of story.

"1.1 - They actually said

You remember on the previous MGSs and staring at the codec discussions for minutes and minutes..nothing but 2 faces, dialogue, and text on the screen forever...he's giving X-Play props for recognizing that cutscenes are WAY better than staring at the CODEC scenes from the previous MGSs...

My bad,
but in my defense,he/she did edit the message after I asked.
Sorry.

A well deserved 5/5
But, I still think that XPlay (and G4 in general) is biased against the PS3, or at least are major Xbox 360 fanboys... for instance on many multiplatform games, they review them as 360 only games (Quake Wars being the most recent) and then you'll see a review of a game like UT3, which was a timed PS3 exclusive reviewed as "multiplatform" event though when it was released, there wasn't even a release date for the 360 version. Not to nitpick on a 5/5, but for such a monumental gaming acheivment, you would think that they would have made a big deal out of it with a whole show devoted to Metal Gear, just like they did with GTA4. Plus, it was a REALLY short review compared to some other lesser games. Maybe it's just me!

Yea everyone is biased against the PS3.. do you think before you post? Xbox 360 games sell more. The show is in 30 minute segments. They cannot review every possible game so they have to choose what they think most people will want to see reviewed, and that leaves the PS3 versions of games lagging behind (for now). Then you go on to complain they don't have a special feature? What do you want a parade for a video game? Use your brain in the future.

"Just aimed at the tiny few that have ridiculous beefs with the title considering what it is. Its like playing an RPG and complaining that there isn't enough platforming. Just too bad."

More like it's like expecting a stealth title and having to watch a movie that never ends.

And to anyone who's going to flame and call me an xbot:
I'm going to buy a PS3 just for this title and FFXIII so if you have any ridiculous fanboy comments keep them to yourself. Some people buy consoles for good video games and not virginal allegiances.

@TheSadTruth
Dude, do you think before you post? Didn't your mother ever tell you if you don't have something nice to say, then don't say anything at all? If you don't agree, that's fine. But, there are more constructive ways to criticize without being completely rude and obnoxious. But, I guess you just want attention. People of small stature can use websites like this to hide and be anonymous. But, when you leave the website and go back to your small, meaningless life, you will still be an ass.

@TheSadTruth
Oh, and by the way, XPlay did do a half hour special for R&C when ToD came out... So, the smaller user base doesn't really matter, does it? And it certainly is not small small now compared to when R&C:ToD came out. Plus, Sessler did a whole soap box about the review restrictions on MGS4.... so, why gloss over such a high profile game and do a short review? I mean, they could have done 2 reviews: one on the single player campaign and one on MGO. Instead, they made sure to briefly mention MGO in this review so that they wouldn't have to do a full review on it later. So, your comment to me fails in so many ways.
N2NOther  +   2319d ago
I love the game a lot but it's not the best game I've played this generation. Sorry.

I agree with nearly everything said in the review though.
-Maverick-  +   2319d ago
I applaud them for praising it and going beyong saying its great and saying how fantastic it is.... but SERIOUSLY... if this game was one the Xbox 360... they would be declaring one of the Greatest games of All Time and showing the game for what it REALLY is.

Still a good review, but it doesn't do MGS4 justice. The game is just MASSIVE in scale, detail and entertainment. There really is nothing out there close to MGS4.
Surfman  +   2319d ago
i've just completed the game. I still can't believe how good is this game. Best game of all time for me. And probably for alot of guys.
ELite_Ghost  +   2319d ago
im stuck on that gay act 3 mission were you follow that homo...
otherwise the game is awesome so far...
phalanges  +   2319d ago
I just finished watching it...
and I was surprised at the review. That it wasn't all complaints. They said the cutscenes were up to 60mins in length with loading between the acts, but it didn't take away from the game.
Syronicus  +   2318d ago
And they are completely right on...
The story is so deep and compelling that you overlook the length of the cutscenes and enjoy the story unfolding before your eyes. Putting down the controller for a snack and a beer has never been so fulfilling in my life. This game redefines action gaming complete with story. It is truly the best game I have ever played.
kingOVsticks  +   2319d ago
thats awesome
x-play usually dislike mgs games gave MGS3,mgs2 a 4 before subsistence and substance. Too bad I can't see that fanboy kevin peirra jaw on the ground from seeing all these good reviews and new happy ps3 gamers but I got rid of g4tv from my cable line up :P

EDIT: I lost a bubble 0.o...fanboys/fangirls crack me up. Im not the type to "beg" for bubbles but I would appreciate it if you guys agree with my comment and like to hear more from me help me back up:)

360 fanboys = owned. I thought only Playstation websites and magazines would give this masterpiece a perfect score?
testerg35  +   2319d ago
So...
pretty much every site is an xbox site according to you. Why do you even bother looking at them? So that you b!tch like a little girl everytime a PS3 game gets a bad score or so you cry with joy when it gets a good score?
Light Yagami  +   2319d ago
Wrong zombie. Every bot here claims Playstation reviewers are biased and will give MGS4 a perfect score.
unrealgamer58  +   2319d ago
well its about time
i mean jeez they gave the bulk of mgs games a 4 out of 5
PSMonster21  +   2319d ago
Xbox-play gave MGS4 a 100%, holy sh1t. This world is coming to a end.
Clinton514  +   2319d ago
X play is still trash
:)

See, no bias.

on that note, my experience with MGS4 so far is amazing.
clintos59  +   2319d ago
Well deserved score...
I mean look at all the major game sites just giving MGS4 an amazing score for an amazing game where all these little fanboy sites are nit picking there way through reviews to try an lower MGS4 scores, lol. Keep trying, this game is GOTY for sure. :P
supergamer  +   2319d ago
GREATEST GAME EVER! ANYBODY WHO GIVE IT BELOW A 9.0 DOESNT KNOW HOW TO REVIEW GAMES AND SHOULD BE FIRED!
avacadosnorkel  +   2319d ago
You said it...
I will never look at a video game in the same way now.

Actually, I think MGS4 is more than a video game.
Aclay  +   2319d ago
Wow. X-Play's 5/5 review score is just as surprising as Gamespots 10/10 rating if you ask me because X-Play really isn't known for giving out many high scores either and I think that they critique games pretty tough.

I guess it took a game as big as MGS4 to make the baised 360 reviewers humble themselves a bit and give a PS3 game the respect that it deserves.
Shinro  +   2319d ago
I'm in the Fifth Act
And Damn! Is this game ever good. I... just can't stop playing... So much variety... so many things to do... and at the same time, the story just keeps you attached into the game. The cutscenes are long but i play through each level as if it were to see the cutscenes. like it's the purpose.

And X-Play is right to give a 5. (just to be on topic, lol)
avacadosnorkel  +   2319d ago
the cut scenes are better than the Final Fantasy CG movies.

how's that online campaign coming along?

G1TR4P3D  +   2319d ago
how's PS3 only having ONE game coming along? I thought so. bored already, huh?
testerg35  +   2319d ago
Funny how....
Every site that doesn't say Playstation is an xbox site to you guys. You're always trying to act like the underdog and everyone's out to get the PS3. Hell there's not even one xbox fan on this thread that has said anything, and you guys are the ones still complaining about xbox this and that. Are you guys done with MGS4 already?

#6.1 - And that was AFTER 2 couldn't shut up beforehand. Don't get me wrong, I think MGS4 deserves all the great ratings its gotten, and I will get it sometime this week.

The only people who complain about the cut scenes are the people who dont understand the story. If you actually understand the story you will enjoy and appreciate the cut scenes

I couldn't have said it better myself ^
I think all those ''journalists'' who continuously cry and bawl over the Cut-Scenes need to be tested for ADD.

*biggies voice*
theres another 1

Lets be honest people. More perfect scores doesn't mean we enjoy the game any more. I finished it earlier and im wondering if the animal trophies you get in the debriefing are the things that will be on display in HOME.

bubbles for kojima anyway.
theclub83  +   2319d ago
If you dont
like the long cut scenes then why not skip them?
sonic1989  +   2319d ago
best game ever
i just finished the game and its the best game i ve ever played.
wangdiddy82  +   2319d ago
i actually look forward to the cut scenes
and cant wait for the next cut scene to start.. If you dont like them than you dont like a good story.. There also beautiful to watch..

This game is the best of the best.. So many different ways to play it and so many cool gadgets to use.. Im only on act 2 and i have to say the FROGS were the shi&.. I had to bust out my camera and take pictures when they were jumping around.. My gf was like what the hell are you doing.. there shooting you.. lol.. I had to get some pics though..
wangdiddy82  +   2319d ago
hey how long did it take you to beat the game?
It took me about 6 hours just to finish act one.. lol.. I went looking for everything and did a lot of sneaking..
TheExecutive  +   2319d ago
i just started act 3 at 14 hours but i consider myself a slower gamer than most. dunno why but i am. I usually poke around the game and just have fun with it.

MGS4 is one of the greatest games ever made so it makes it easy to take my time.
jon1234  +   2319d ago
took me around 18 hours to beat the entire game
Whoooop  +   2319d ago
Ahhhh sh*t
Another perfect score....

Some of the best boss fights ever seen in videogames

Are u f#cking kidding me!
Laugh with me Snake, Laugh
Show me your rage, Snake. Rage
Cry for me Snake. Cry

STFU

The boss fights were all missed oportunities. And what's with the same endings for each and every one (Boss sheds armor and walks towards you until you take her out) then a long boring codec from Drebin?

Whatever

I'm going back to my good games (Okami, Shadow of The Colossus, Folklore, Heavenly Sword, Ico, Odin's Sphere, Valkyrie Profile 2, etc)
