"The wait is finally over, and the final chapter of the Metal Gear Solid series has arrived. Since being shown at E3 2006,Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots has been one of the most anticipated games this generation. After exploring Snake's father, Big Boss, in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops, Kojima has returned to the original plot-lines started in previous games in an attempt to tie everything together into one cohesive story. With all the hype surrounding the latest, and the last in the Metal Gear Solid series, MGS4 certainly has a lot to live up to; it also has a lot to prove being one of the first high profile series to debut on the PlayStation 3."
