360-Entertainment Metal Gear Solid 4 Review - 'one of the greatest games ever'


360-Entertainment Writes: "This is a game that really changes your views on games. One that pulls you in in such a manner that you can feel your heart beating faster, shocks you with it's revelations and has you on the edge of your seat for 17 of the 18 hours that it took me to complete. I never thought I could get so attached to a game as I have been since I played Final Fantasy X a few years ago, but this game has to be one of the greatest games ever, not only visually, but for the emotional attachment it subjects you to.

I will have to go and agree with other review sites on this one, a perfect score of 10/10 from me, the biggest problem this game has? The ONLY big downfall I have come out of the game feeling? The fact that it finishes - But what a finish at that.

To Hideo Kojima and all the staff who work on Metal Gear Solid over the last 20 years, you sirs, are geniuses. Thank You." (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) 10/10

Nice one.. I just read the preview (I didnt finish the Game, play really slowly becuz I dont want to see the end)

correct me if Im wrong.. is it the first time Metacritic average is getting better after releasing the game ?
EDIT:it seems MGS4 got seven 8.0s from Cutscene haters who didnt understand the story :D..

I remember SSBB,GTA4,CoD4,GeOW,Halo3 ... Metacritic number for all of them was getting worse after release date (9.9 > 9.8 > 9.5 > 9.4 ..)

Bots: “HAHAHA! MGS4 is a failure! PS3 SUCKS!”

Good review.. I agree, I never wanted the game to end.. Havent had that feeling since Uncharted.. Its rare games that give me this feeling.. MGS4 simple an amazing game that everyone should enjoy..

Its a Gamers Game Period

Same here... I didnt want Liquid to lose. Solid practically had the world against him. Greatest boss battle EVER in a videogame is with Solid and Liquid!!!
yanikins111  +   2596d ago
ou should really type *********SPOILER****** before you mention bosses etc, even tho it was kinda obvios who the last boss would be.


Until he wasnt the last boss. Sure you didnt get to fight the last boss, but that boss was pretty cool. Foxdie FTW

For me, MGS 4 is the best game in this generation. Its way too epic. Only other big games like FF 13 could have a chance IMO

MGS4 review from a site with 360 in its name ... my head just sploded!

360 fanboys arent as deranged as the ps3 fanboys

its just a joke
Breakfast  +   2597d ago
lol...theres an edit button.
deeznuts  +   2596d ago
Yeah apparently everyone got that joke except you! I didn't even click through, but the fact the site only says 360 and no box, and was reviewing mgs4, led me to believe it wasn't an x360 site.

"no game has ever touched me the way that mgs4 has"-postedup.

28:37:56 at the end of act 4, i still have one more act to go. and thats only on solid normal. i cant wait to play it on hard : O
MisfitSmurf  +   2597d ago
only took me 21 hours to beat it O.o
PoSTedUP  +   2596d ago
i take my sweet time. i cant just "run" through a game of this epicness in 10 seconds. these games need to be savored. and besides you get massive DP for exploring certain areas : P, you find things like the original mk.23 pistole from mgs1 : P, you find alot of hidden things in this game if you take your time and look around this beautiful masterpiece. and a 30+ hour game is worth it to me : ).

No, that score is wrong. Everyone knows 360 entertainment is a bunch of fanboys. ;)

everyone disagree with breakfast, It'd just be funny to see alot of ppl disagree with the existence of an edit button.

This is the comments section, a place where even overweight 35 year old men who has a troubled marriage and does nothing but post negative comments about PS3 related news because they are attached to their 360 more than their own wives, and feel like they're on top of the world
StephenEntertainment  +   2596d ago
Hi there, I'm the Admin and Owner of 360-Entertainment, and can I just clarify that no im not a 360 fanboy at all, the name is 360 as in degrees not the console, if people took a few seconds to read a few of my posts they would see that, and if anything, I dislike the 360 more than any of my other consoles, so please, don't call my site a xbox fanboy site, when it clearly isn't ;) Thanks

And can I just say how happy I am to have my site shown on N4G, pretty proud tbh :)
DARK WITNESS  +   2596d ago
so i don't need to look to you for 360 news then, i can guess which way its going to swing..
Syronicus  +   2596d ago
@ StephenEntertainment
Thanks for clearing that up. Regardless, even if you were a 360 fanboy, even they cannot disagree with the greatness that is MGS4. Those that do are not even worth the lowly title of fanboy. lol

"I dislike the 360 more than any of my other consoles"

So you're a PS3 fanboy? Well as long as your not biased lol

"I am the lightning and the rain reborn"

Or something like that. That scene gave me goosebumps. I love that guy.
Angelitos  +   2596d ago

You like PS3 more than 360. I like you :)
StephenEntertainment  +   2596d ago
Haha oh god, what's with all this fanboy talk? I prefer my PS3 yes, but then I also prefer my Nintedo Wii to my Xbox, I dont hate xbox at all, just prefer games like Metal Gear and Final Fantasy, but a game like COD4 I have for my 360 I used to play all the time, honestly, what happened to the good 'ol days when you can just like all the consoles and not be called a fanboy if you prefer one game for a console over another!

Oh dark witness, yes you can see 360 news there, i dont completely hate it
DARK WITNESS  +   2596d ago
good to know. As long as the news itself is presented with out bias, thats all that matters.

of course the broblem is people tend to see bias, even where there is none ! its just the way people are.

11.1 Apologies to StephenEntertainment
Sorry there buddy, didnt mean to offend with the fanboy thing. I honestly just thought that your comments about not being a 360 fanboy quite comedically lead to sounding like a PS3 fanboy.

"can I just clarify that no im not a 360 fanboy at all, the name is 360 as in degrees not the console, if people took a few seconds to read a few of my posts they would see that, and if anything, I dislike the 360"

Your right though, the time of just being a gamer seems to be at an end,people seem to be taking the 'Console War' alot more seriously this generation with calls of conspiracies, bribed journalist and band wagon reviews on either side. Its sad really, with so many people trolling the net bragging over a game or a review, it makes you wonder whether the games they talk about are even that good anymore. Why else would they waste good gameplaying time on the net fighting against people they have never met in a console war that wont actually benefit them. I mean say Microsoft or Sony actually won (and by that i mean the other chooses to no longer manufacture consoles) what will we the public get? Lack of choice for a start and with no competition im guessing increased presses and inferior products. Do people really want that?

Sorry for going off topic there, now where were we....oh yes i remember.."Another perfect score for MGS4, In your face Xbots, PS3 rules"..."No way, these reviews are so phoney, they just overlook the problems because the PS3 needs a good game".."Screw you Xbot" etc...
DARK WITNESS  +   2596d ago

that last bit made me smile !

it is true though, its hard to be in the middle of the road these days.

I do think MGS 4 is the best next gen game so far, i prefer the 360 to the ps3 and i hope the Wii dies a very slow painful death...

thats just me, thing is its all personal opinion. often we do get offended when someone attacks our opinion and we tend to want to attack back or defend ourselves.

its all good fun though. it gives me something to laugh at when i am at work.

No problem deadpool, good to see someone else with a level head on their shoulders

@ Dark Witness
I know what you mean, we each have our favourites but some people just moan all the time about games they probably havent even played.
I'm a 360 owner and, going by this forum, the only guy who has had one since launch without suffering the red ring of death (i consider myself very lucky lol).I think that the 360 has the better catalogue of games at the moment, but then its been out longer.
I never got round to buying a PS3 because other than Uncharted, which looks great, there were no other exclusives that i really wanted..until now. Yeah MGS4 is definitely a game i want to play, it looks awesome, and even the 'so called' biased 8/10 reviews say how amazing it is in places.
I also own a Wii, though to this day i don't know why. Their arent many good games on it and I found Mario Galaxy to be over hyped and disappointing to be honest. My best game i've played on it is Zak and Wiki (which is admittedly pretty cool).
So here we are, multi format owners, looking at a console war fought between mindless fanboys who cant bare to think that there maybe be a good game on an other system or that a supposedly prefect game isn't everyones cup of tea. Its good for a laugh i guess.
We are all entitled to our opinion, i just don't get how so many can use their freedom of speech to tell somebody else that their opinion doesn't count. The hypocrisy is hilarious.

This proves something...
In most cases the competition will bash you. It takes a real towering-above-the-rest game like MGS4 that will make even your competition acknowledge that you got it right.

This is the first game this gen that have even the competition taking their hats of. Good for Kojima and his staff. Well done. So far this game is the best game I have played.
