TheSixthAxis Reviews MGS 4

TheSixthAxis: "To review such a game as Metal Gear Solid 4 is like commissioning a blind man to share his opinion on a beautiful oil painting painted by a true artist, it just wouldn't work. The nature of Metal Gear Solid 4 lifts it above such conventional ways of judgement. But alas, the nature of the industry makes it necessary for even such a game to be subjected to such an insulting judicial process." (Culture, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) 10/10

I don't remember who it was on this site who said it, but they said:

"For every 8, theres a 10 or 2 around the corner"

This meta score is fluctuating like crazy. Still, a week after it's release and people are still praising the game. Much more than what can be said about GTA4. Good review.

does this mean the argument about wether games can be judged art is finally over
butterfinger  +   2720d ago
I would definitely say this game was a work of art, but a lot of games are not.
Utalkin2me  +   2720d ago
What he mean's to say is that, It's not really a game just more of a movie with some controlable camera options and flashback's. And far as the game goes it was short the A.I. was awful and it had some graphic glitches galor. And why does the cutscene's drop frame's so bad?
The Wood  +   2720d ago
did you play it on your PS3i or something or are you seriously clutching
Erotic Sheep  +   2720d ago
Dont give Utalkin2me attention. His 360 simply broke down again and he needs a break from crying the 360 is dying and would never get a game as good as MGS4.
Junkhan  +   2720d ago
MGS4 will become the criteria for whether or not one game deserves the name of NEXT-GENERATION, which means that 360 gamers will have to wait for next-gen games until 720 releases several years later.

bleeming eck

deserves them too, game is incredible

Metacritic has so few trusted sources registered, so their score is a poor representation
PoSTedUP  +   2720d ago

SIX  +   2720d ago
This game made me cry
It still haunts me. That's saying a lot.
Denocao  +   2720d ago
I have just finished the game.
I was not a MGS fan but now I am.
This is the best game I ever played.

When I finished the game I was just looking at the screen feeling like I had to clap my hands to the game.

Wow... If you don't have it yet you need to get it!
tatotiburon  +   2720d ago

"For you see, this game is available for purchase to all, even the lowest forms of humanity who should deservedly combust and be reduced to ashes in the divine presence of it."
Lol, made my day.

MGS4 is one addicting game. Couldn't put down the controllers once I started. Slept very little like most of these other gamers playing it. I really enjoyed the controls and being able to hide and fight when necessary with ease just makes the experience more enjoyable. The octo-camo suite is one of the greatest idea ever incorporated into a game. Kojima is one brilliant designer/developer. I completed MGS4 yesterday and I'm ready for a second go at it. I feel this is one experience I think many open minded gamers shouldn't miss.
Jihaad_cpt  +   2720d ago
So Im on Act4 now and all I have to say is this game is the best game I have ever played ever, EVER.

This is the most pathetic piece of writing I have ever seen on N4G, and that's saying a hell of a lot.
