VG-Reloaded: Metal Gear Solid 4 Review

Chances are that by now you've seen most MGS 4 reviews, some are near perfect at 10 while others are less gracious and gave them somewhere in the area of 8-9, which is still high but for a game of this magnitude, one can't help thinking that it's more of an insult to what could be the biggest game of all time.

Hideo Kojima more or less created the stealth genre, and without Metal Gear there would probably not be a Hitman or a Splinter Cell. Kojima has worked wonders with the franchise and pulls off a compelling and dignified way to end the saga of Solid Snake. (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) 9.8/10

9.8/100 eh? Of course, it's just a typo and I'm just having a lark.

My next run will be slower. More sneaky. I was blowing through this game just to get to the cut scenes.

this game has blown my mind for every one of those 24 hours

I like the fact that the game upscales to 1080p even if it's not the native resolution. Makes me able to use the pixel mapping feature on my tv. More games need this.

I am going to get bagged for this...
...but Metal Gear Online is a poor attempt at taking the franchise on-line. I have tried playing it and if its not lag that contributes to your downfall then its some guy who has already mastered the control scheme and is able to wipe you out with a headshot before you have even fired your first round. Sure, I'll admit I am not all that good at the game but the difficulty level and the quirks of MGO don't inspire me to want to go back for more. I mean, what is with:

- The seemingly sluggish controls.
- The way you get hit that you character comes to a stop for a brief moment.
- The way that the game is nothing but a snipe fest for campers.
- Another next-gen lobby system where you have no idea what your ping rate is. For goodness sake Sony (and MS), develop a generic lobby system or set of criteria that all multiplayer enabled games should comply with. Base it on the multiplayer lobby used for Halo 3 as that would provide a fantastic start!
- The rediculous hit system. Head shot = instant kill but anywhere else and you almost have to use an entire clip to take someone out! This might not be so bad if it were not for the last-gen control scheme. Maybe if you were using a keyboard and mouse but it feels clumsy when using the Sixaxis controller.

Sure there is some depth to the game with upskilling your character and weapons but the gameplay itself feels like something that should have been released with MGS3.

My take on MGS4...Single Player 9.8/10, Multiplayer 6/10.

MGO isn't very n00b friendly, I found that out right away in the beta. After spending some time with it and leveling up my character's skills, I started owning face. Yes, headshots are key and your guy seems sluggish at first. It also isn't CoD4 or Resistance, so maybe the game simply isn't for you.

And lol @ 9.8/100, the game's a little better than that. =P

Am I the only one who saw 9.8/10?
It's more acceptable than 10 IMO.
