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.

The story is too old to be commented.

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."

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

wolfehound223653d 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

Nevers3653d ago

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

Ben10543653d ago

rates games out of 4. 3/4 = 7.3/10

CrashSharc3653d ago

I wish FoxNews would Just FoxDie....

lol, see what I did there?

... I think I'm gonna go get a cookie :)

MikeGdaGod3653d ago

these are the same idiots that have Bill O'Riely as they're star talk host. i can't imagine anyone takes what they say seriously.

Nevers3653d ago

disagree with hatin' on Fox News.

Bzone243653d ago

It's funny how nobody cares about what Foxnews has to about mgs4 yet there are 90 comments on their review.

thesummerofgeorge3653d 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?

godofthunder103653d 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.

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.

NO_PUDding3653d ago

As much as I don't care abotu Uncharted, it's certainly better lookign than MGS4, as much as I love MGS4.

pimpstation3653d ago

Since when was FoxNews a credible source for anything at all?

G1TR4P3D3653d ago

theKiller3653d ago (Edited 3653d ago )

foxnews is hardcore 360 fanboys!! Mass effect was a half flop and they tried to draw attention by saying the sexual stuff in it is bad and bla bla bla!

Expy3653d ago

FOXNEWS: Less SLACKING OFF, and more IMPORTANT NEWS. What are you guys doing reviewing games? Morons.

Nitrowolf23653d ago

Yes its a great game and all but that not there job to review it. Since when does fox news review games? This is the first i heard.
i bet ya they just more people going to there site or something.

thebudgetgamer3653d ago (Edited 3653d ago )

tplarkin73653d ago

It's the Associated Press. Foxnews is just relaying the AP feed.

Wildarmsjecht3653d ago


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.
