Foxnews Review: MGS 4 Needs More Action, Less Story

Is "Metal Gear Solid 4" a game or an experience? The answer is unclear in the latest installment of this epic franchise. Both masterful and bloated, "Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots" is less about interactivity and more about storytelling. (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3)

Oh, damn
Does that say 3/4. I smell contreversy already. Heh heh heh :)
But seriously, I've played MGS4 and it deserves WAY more than a 7.5/10 (3/4). 9.5/10! :)

Fox News Gamers Weekly gave the game a proper review. I suggest watching their video review. Its good. They call it "our favorite video game of all time."

The question is:
Who gives a damn about a FoxNews VIDEOGAME review?

Aren't these the same people who thought a side Boob in Mass Effect would be the end of the world?

"Who gives a damn about a FoxNews VIDEOGAME review? "

Well the same people that post 5 mgs4 reviews in a day, even freaking blog reviews
wolfehound22  +   2719d ago
Every big game that comes out gets all of these reviews. GTA4 Halo 3 had tones of reviews and stories for about 2-3 weeks after it eventually dies off

WOW... another fine example of a steaming pile o' horse pucky. I don't think you can even say that it's anything remotely close to "journalism" that spews outta that societal anal-wart called FOX.

...sorry... just hatin' on Fox News 8D

It's funny how nobody cares about what Foxnews has to about mgs4 yet there are 90 comments on their review.
thesummerofgeorge  +   2718d ago
How can they say it's their favorite game of all time and give it a 3/4... What are they reserving 4/4 for?
godofthunder10  +   2718d ago
what is it with ps3 fanboys and mgs4.every time a review comes out and it doesn't get a perfect score they tell the reviewer to stfu and call them bias and other names.

they all need to growup and get a damn life and stop acting like mgs4 is the greatest game in the world.they act as if it's a fact and it deserve a perfect score.

the same people here were the same ones that called reviewers bias,said they didn't know what they were talking about and told them to stfu when they gave halo 3 a perfect score,but the same reviewer gave mgs4 a perfect score so now they know what they are talking about.where i'm from we call them hypercrits and they have them on both sides.

ps3 fanboys(not fans,they are fair)also said that halo 3 deserve no more then a 5 or 6 out of 10 and any review above that is bias but claims that every reviewer in the world should give mgs4 a perfect score and the ones that don't are bias and need to stfu.

the truth is that if halo 3 was a ps3 exclusive,the same people that claim that it doesn't deserve more then a 5 or 6 out of 10 would claim that it deserves a perfect score and the reviewer that didn't give it a perfect score is bias and need to stfu.the same thing with mgs4,if it was a 360 exclusive,the same people that claiming it deserve a perfect score would be saying that it doesn't deserve more then a 5 or 6 out of 10 and this is a fact and they all know it.

the truth is that not every one like mgs4,just like every one doesn't like halo 3.every game has some flaws in it and not one game is perfect,not even mgs4 like ps3 fanboys are trying to claim.

the same ps3 fanboys that claim that they like all the cut scenes in mgs4 and they don't mind watching them was the same people that was saying that blue dragon has to many cut scenes and they wouldn't buy it because of it and it wasn't even close to an hr 1/2 like mgs4.

i read a post written by a ps3 fanboy when oblivian first came out and it was supose to be a 360 exclusive.he said that he doesn't have a 360 he has a ps3 but he played it on his cousin 360 and the game suxed and it was over rated and he wouldn't buy it if he had a 360.well when it was released on the ps3,the same ps3 fanboy said that it was a great game and every one should buy it.

fanboys from both sides act the same way.ps3 fanboys think that all the games on the 360 sux and all the ones on the ps3 are better.360 fanboys think that all the games on the ps3 sux and all the games on the 360 are better.

all ps3 fanboys would love for certain 360 exclusives to be on the ps3 and vice versa but none of them will admit it because they act childish.

i have a 360 and i would love for killzone 2 to be on the 360 if it is like they claim and if it is it should win game of the year.

what i'm trying to say is that just because you think a certain game deseve a perfect score that doesn't mean it does,that's your opinion.

the truth is that fanboys from both sides will say a game sux if it's on the other system.360 fanboys claim that halo 3 deserve a perfect score but if it was a ps3 exclusive they would say it sux.ps3 fanboys claim mgs4 deserve a perfect score but if it was a 360 exclusive they would say it sux and this is a fact,all you have to do is read fanboys posts and the way they talk about the other system and the games on it and it's just childish and i would be ashamed if i was them.

Hagaf22  +   2719d ago
well i guess everyone gets there say, but i dont think they are familiar with the whole mgs4 background, the whole thing with this game was to seal the games story, to tie it altogether and answer those questions everyone wants to know, while i agree that the cutscenes are long, its all worth while when you see how masterfully the graphics come together with the story and give ps3 owners the best looking game thus far.

Ok, before anyone comes in here talking about "Why is it that whenever it gets less than a 9, it's a bias reviewer or a dumb one and blah blah blah" Please look at the "reviewer"

Yea. Fox news. The supposed World Wide leader for fair and unbiased news casting.

Im gonna let the irony float alittle more while I chuckle. heh..amazing.

Elephant ears
I don't care if the president of the starfleet federation reviews this game and brings out a law that says everyone will accept that MGS4 is a 1/100. It would make no difference. I would make no difference to anyone who has played it.

I just completed it. I know what I think of it. I know MY score, and that's all that matters.

nycredude  +   2719d ago
Not only do they have no clue how to review games but wtf is up with the out of four format?

3/4 let me get this straight so MGS4 is 75% game. Ok there goes their credibility. Don't quit your day job, even though they suck sh*t there also!

I don't think the question should be whether "Metal Gear Solid 4" a game or an experience?"

It should be is "Fox News a news site or a game review site?"

The answer is very obvious!! NEITHER!
meepmoopmeep  +   2719d ago
why do they review out of 4?
Alexander Roy  +   2719d ago

WacksOnWacksOff  +   2718d ago
Couldn't have said it better. I don't understand why everybody is getting upset here. This review is a reflection of what the more casual gamer is likely to get out of MGS4. This game is more for the hardcore gamers who are more familiar with the series. The casual gamer is not going to spooge in their pants over this game like the existing fans are. Just because a non-MGS fan doesn't "get it" like the hardcore fans do, it doesn't mean that his/her opinion of the game is any less valid. It merely means that his/her opinion reflects the viewpoint of a more casual gamer.

"Needs More Action"
who the hell says that about a tactical espionage game? MGS4 at that and this is the first review i seen that gave it a 3...Yes I know its on a 1-4 scale(wtf that scale is for movies) but a 3 is always to low for MGS4 unless its on a 1-3 scale.... im not even sure that scale even exist 0.o. Also didn't the other foxnews site give this game a 10/10

i didn't even bother reading the review, just the header was enough "mgs4 needs more action, less story".

sure i understand some ppl don't "get" metal gear, still i thank kojima that he never listened to them and just persisted with his vision.
