Solid Snake is back to perform his final mission in Konami's highly anticipated stealth action title, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots for the PlayStation 3.
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..
that the cut-scenes were great.I fail to understand your comment. Is it aimed at complaints in general or this particular review?
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.
wow, i just finished watching this on TV
"1.1 - They actually said that the cut-scenes were great.I fail to understand your comment." 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...
but in my defense,he/she did edit the message after I asked. Sorry.
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!

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
im stuck on that gay act 3 mission were you follow that homo... otherwise the game is awesome so far...
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.
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.
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:)
Yeah, have a bubble, a lot of people are getting uppity because of MGS4 blowing everything else away.
They took one from me too. Have a bubble!
I gave you guys a bubble too and thanks to anyone else who bubbled me up.
Gave you gentleman bubbles. Share the bubble love for this girl too! :3
Appearances are deceiving.You are main site version of a forum resident. This comment should not be taken too seriously,I'm only here for the fun.
*stares at harry* BOY I'LL... j/k I know you're kidding around. :P
360 fanboys = owned. I thought only Playstation websites and magazines would give this masterpiece a perfect score?
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?
Wrong zombie. Every bot here claims Playstation reviewers are biased and will give MGS4 a perfect score.
i mean jeez they gave the bulk of mgs games a 4 out of 5
Xbox-play gave MGS4 a 100%, holy sh1t. This world is coming to a end.
:) See, no bias. on that note, my experience with MGS4 so far is amazing.
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
GREATEST GAME EVER! ANYBODY WHO GIVE IT BELOW A 9.0 DOESNT KNOW HOW TO REVIEW GAMES AND SHOULD BE FIRED!
I will never look at a video game in the same way now. Actually, I think MGS4 is more than a video game.
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.
