Gamesdog Metal Gear Solid 4 Review

By: Chris Pickering

To finally see Snake go is certainly a sad time. As a closing to an epic series, this is the fan service we all dreamed of. As a game on its own, it's stunning in its own right. Ignore the naysayers who claim the story is dull and tedious, they're just fools. Metal Gear Solid 4 is simply fantastic. (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) 10/10

Hydrolex  +   2715d ago
51 10s and how many under 10s ?
Ok whoever gave MGS4 anything under 10 needs attention.
The Wood  +   2715d ago
i never even knew there were so many gaming sites out there

*raises glass for the 51st time*

To Kojima and team

@The wood, very well said. Those guys deserve all the credit. For almost 4 yrs, they poured everything they had into one game. We are very very pleased with the results.

MGS4 re defines the word epic in video games. Best movie this yr best game this gen

dont worry about metric
do this

take 3 reviews from places with a history. Gameinformer IGN and who ever else you find yourself enjoying. I think i can say out of those 50+ plus reviews i know maybe 5-6 of the mags/sites.

Just take the 3 lowest scores and 3 highest scores and take them off the list. Then add the rest up. Bet it comes to 9.9...i didnt do the math because i know a 10/10 game when i play it
PimpHandHappy  +   2715d ago
i dont think he is
i dont think he has played the game and i dont think he could afford a PS3....atleast his mom cant
michel-ragi  +   2715d ago
i do have the game,but i just wanted to express my opinion,i just wanted a new experience from metal gear .............

nycredude  +   2715d ago
Just finished MGS4!!!
I am kind of sad that it had to end but damn at least it went out with a bang!!! That last boss fight was freaking epic!! I'm going to play a bit of MGO and get right back to the game on the hardest level!! Can't wait!

This game is without a doubt the best game I've ever played and if it doesn't get GOTY then it's a shame!

BTW what the heck is with Metacritic? It doesn't have any of the recent 10 scores on it and is still stuck on 94???

crimsonfox  +   2715d ago
hhahaha omg

cr33ping_death  +   2715d ago

crimsonfox  +   2715d ago

Awesome game. All I wish is that it was longer. I loved sneaking around and sniping/healping the rebels.
heyheyhey  +   2715d ago
truly incredible

i love how they included the Mosin Nagant from MGS3, awesome weapon

you discover new things every minute in MGS
name  +   2715d ago
Alot of the 10's it got haven't been added to metra for some reason.
heyheyhey  +   2715d ago
Meta has a limited amount of recognized sources

or basically, a limited amount of sources that are likely to give a PS3 game a good score
Eimmij  +   2715d ago
I just beat the game last night and it is great the best game this year in all aspects except Graphics. I now what you guys are going to say but to me Uncharted Drake's Fortune still has it beat there the colors pop on that game the greens r green the yellow r yellow there is no haze of gray smeared over it or yellow it still gets a 10/10 from me im just saying Uncharted still is on top for me in the graphics for me and i hope more games take a look at that and make games look that great soon.

beavis4play  +   2715d ago
man, that's a fine line between the two games........
i think bothe of the games are stunners. hey, what about ratchet? graphically it is jaw dropping as well!
there isn't anything on the 360 that can touch any of them.
ikkokucrisis  +   2715d ago
the thing about metacritics is
it is owned by CNET, who also owns Gamespot, who is owned/largely sponsored by MS. The same goes for Gamerankings, and once you understand this, you can see why all the scores are biased in favor of the 360 and against the PS3.

That is just not cool
I knew it was kind strange whenever I saw a 8 or a 8.5 added to the list the score would immediately go down to 9.5 even went down to 9.4.Also remember there being a post where there were suppose to add the A+'s but it didn't seem like it. Over 50 tens out off around a hundred reviews gave it a perfect score and it still at a 9.6 thanx for the info.

I don't want to spoil the story for everyone but one of the person in the game looses his arm and saves the other persons life when he comes between a massive ****.like i said i found it boring

This is not kid games. So, i don't blame you. Play NG2 and have fun.
Xlll  +   2715d ago
PP thats not half way. Good try but you need a PS3 to play this game. You only get NG2 (6/10).

i don't remember saw so many reviews for a game in N4G, i hope xbox 360 supotters don't do the same thing when games like Gears of War 2 come out, it's really annoying.
