Gamernode: Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots Review

Gamernode writes: "Metal Gear Solid 4 (MGS4) is a highly detailed game truly best viewed as a whole. While it's necessary to nitpick the convoluted story and over-dramatic voice acting in order to progress the medium, doing so for too long may significantly and unnecessarily detract from the overall, and in this case, highly polished product.

On the "making of" disc included with the limited edition version only available at GameStop and with the Gun Metal PS3, series creator Hideo Kojima says, "There are certain things you need to pass on in life but the theme of this game is 'sense,' or that which you can't pass on. A person's will and way of life is symbolized by Snake continuing to fight despite his old age, and also myself retuning to direct the game."

Regardless, right now it's one of the best-looking, engaging, and emotionally driven experiences, with the gameplay to match, on the PS3 or any console." (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) 10/10

i finished this game a couple days ago before the pyro updates hit the PC...and i have to say its just a sliver away from my fav game ever...slightly behind the HL series. great game....i hope it beats out gta4 for GOTY.

It certainly deserves it but i am sure fanboy politics will get in the way. It being a PS3 exclusive and all and also not being all that friendly to casuals. It certainly deserves it more than GTA. Where GTA disappointed me, MGS4 exceeded expectations.

Some people will love it more than others. Mostly people who go in expecting to hate the hell out of the game. But at the end of the day, they can't help but see its simply a master piece and needs to go down in history as one of the brightest games this gen has to show.

i agree. gta4 has collected dust for more than a month now. mgs4 i played every day since i got it just about. these huge sales for gta4 will make it GOTY. and i dont agree with that at all.

What I am most surprised about is why no one to date has brought up the flawless cover system that allows you to pop and shoot on the fly with ease. Better then Gears, Better than uncharted even.

Anyone else notice this in the game? You hit triangle and then hold L-1 and move in and out of cover using the digital pad left and right or the analog up and down? It's absolutely brilliance! Another really cool thing I think people aren't talking about so much is the sheer amount of moves and different ways to take out an opponent really. I was impressed about halfway thru when I realised some of the stuff you could do. Blowing their brains out from behind, for 1 was cool. Disarming them is also really cool and varied. If you notice he doesn't always disarm the same way.

So much in this game needs to be talked about more. A wealth of hidden items and things to see and do. Helping the rebels is another cool thing to do.

Am I the only one who thinks this game has got to be one of the only games that received so many perfect scores?
Obama  +   2229d ago
The one game that DESERVES these many perfect scores ;)
beavis4play  +   2230d ago
another perfect score for metacritic to ignore.....
seriously, how can metacritic be taken seriously if they don't take ALL SCORES?
jollygoodchap8  +   2229d ago
Yeah...no kidding
They were pretty quick throw up 8's on the exact same day they were released. I hate to say it but Gamerankings is doing the same thing :(

"Lets put up 8's right away and ignore a bunch of the 60+ perfect 10's!"
