Mirror.co.uk Metal Gear Solid 4 Review

"MGS4 serves as one of the first genuine examples of the superior horsepower Sony's machine has over Microsoft's rival Xbox 360."

Visually there's little else out there right now to rival MGS4, although there are some ridiculously indulgent feature-length cut scenes. This aside, it's an unforgettable experience that no self-respecting PS3 owner should be without. (Industry, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) 5/5

"superior horsepower Sony's machine has over Microsoft's rival "
that part wont go down well
clintos59  +   2469d ago
yeah well the reviewer is kind of right in a way because MGS4 is just stunningly beautiful.
But to me he didnt have to bring that up in his review, because all that really matters is that this game is just freakin awesome and more. Check out these 3 images, MGS4 looks beautiful and stunning.

Spoiler images for those who havent played the game yet, warning, *3 Spoiler Images"

lol WHERE THE HELL IS GLAD TO BE A GAMER

He was there to comment about how MGS4 apparently wasn't as great because of eurogamer review. Brilliantly side stepping all the 10's littered all over the floor. He was there screaming bland color schemes and how the graphics aren't that great.

Sigh...i need to gloat:D
Veryangryxbot  +   2469d ago
Like hell he didnt.
He is allowed to say that because its not a lie.

PS3 hardware really is > 360 hardware.
Thats reality. People just gotta live with it because no amount of denial will ever change reality. PS3 games are only going to look better, better, vastly better and more superior.

Better to accept reality now than get a frikkin culture shock 2 years from now. Saves you from a lot of troubles and headaches.

Enough with the MGS4 reviews already, we get the point the game is f*cking awesome, but we dont need reviews from blogs and newspapers and websites that have no real knowledge on games!
crck  +   2469d ago
I'd have to disagree about reviews from Newspapers.
Its good to get a review once in a while from a fresh perspective. Someone who isn't "in" the industry following the development of the game and watching every trailer that was released for the last few years. They are professional writers so they can at the very least clearly express their opinions. I agree with you about blogs though because most of them are poorly written.

These sort of reviews are sometimes the best ones. Gaming websites and Magazine reviews can be a bit too biased sometimes to give a true picture.
clintos59  +   2469d ago
Damn I have a couple more review sites but it says I can only have 5 in 24 hours, lol...
Well guess ill add them tomorrow. And for anyone who wants to know how many perfect scores MGS4 has so far. 67 perfect scores. And out of 121 reviews so far I have read, 111 of the reviews are AAA or AAAA reviews and the other 10 are between 8.0 to 8.9 scores. This is how u know this game lived up to its hype and those reviews who gave it an 8 obviously had to be people who werent really fans of the game or were biased against the game since it was a ps3 exclusive. My proof, is check all those sites that gave MGS4 an 8 and then go check those same sites with there halo 3 review. Anyways im off to bed but enjoy the mgs4 reviews because this is the best next gen game I have played thus far. :)

lol
y would it not go down well >>> every one knows that it is the truth, y do u think multiplat dev have problems making ps3 games but when one of sony first party studio brings out an exlusive game u see graphics that re cutting edge... i tought i could not see any thing that looked better than uncharnted till mgs4 came out and now i can only imagine how GOD OF WAR 3 will look like.
Condoleezza Rice  +   2469d ago
Don't forget KillZone 2!
Slayer OP  +   2469d ago
Why is the average score stuck on 9.6?
its been that way for 2 days even though there have been 7 or 8 100% scores.

"Visually there's little else out there right now to rival MGS4"
Agreed ^ ,although Gran Turismo 5:Prologue and Uncharted are serious contenders for the present console King in terms of Graphics.
Nathaniel_Drake  +   2469d ago
Is it just me or...
is MGS4 getting to be the most reviewed game, I mean I have never even heard of some of these sites

Note: I am proud of the great scores it is getting!!! =)
Johnny Cullen  +   2469d ago
Say what you want about its review, its a better review then games reviewed by The Sun.

They wouldnt know the difference between good and bad games tbh.
MaximusPrime  +   2469d ago
did you noticed that there are more 100% rated MGS4 reviews than Halo 3?

Anyway congratulations once again
Peow  +   2469d ago
Your point could be great, but how many reviews as a whole are there for Halo 3? MGS4 has hundreds of reviews, most of them from websites I've never even heard of.
Pp p  +   2469d ago
For Halo 3 and Gears of war these sites didn't give a review it seem half of these new sites which i've never heard before are popping out of nowhere
no wonder MGS4 meta score will be high

awwwwwww quick some1 giv this guy a tissue hes about to cry lmao
digger18  +   2469d ago
Lol at Pp P

The Mirror isn't a new site.

The Mirror is a newspaper here in the UK, which has been running since 1903. This is just a website of their newspaper.

Finally picked this up for my son yesterday. I've never really gotten into the MGS series... after watching part of the 1st act I've noticed that the AI in some parts are really bad. I had to ask my son if he was invisible or something. Graphics is ok to me. IMO I've seen better looking PS3 games.
Peow  +   2469d ago
Well what difficulty are you playing on? If it's Liquid Easy or Naked Normal then it'll seem like that. After he beats the game, try the first level on The Boss Extreme, then see if you're "invisible" or not. :). There are better looking PS3 games, but the only one I can think of off the top of my head is Uncharted.
heyheyhey  +   2469d ago
there aren't any better looking PS3 games

the level of detail and finesse in MGS4's in-game cutscenes and gameplay is just unmatched

in all the various locations- the graphics are just amazing and sometimes photo-realistic

in South America for example, MGS4 beats Uncharted at it's own jungle game
DJ  +   2469d ago
If you have at least 80% Octo-camo cover
Or have it on the basic difficulty levels (first two), then it can definitely seem that way. The special forces units (from Liquid's army) are a bit smarter than the PMCs or rebels. I agree that the graphics on Act 1 aren't too spectacular. But wait till you see the other 4...

Damn... I got disagrees and I don't think I said anything bad. I'll have my son try it on a harder level next time.

MGS4 is the best next gen game you can get. COD4, Halo 3 and Gears campain sucks and/or short, Mass effect gets boring.

MGS4 has it all. The campain and MGO that comes with is the best.
DJ  +   2469d ago
Almost done with the game.
And I'm seriously beginning to wonder how insane PS3 titles are going to be in just two more years. No wonder Microsoft's Xbox Division has been on a PR warpath.
tk  +   2469d ago
Best looking...
Maybe...
But I still think the water in Uncharted looks better.
MGS4 is a must buy. Anyone played the MGS1 part where Snake sleeps?
Peow  +   2469d ago
I still can't get past f@cking revolver ocelot. I get him down to 1/4th of his health(little less) and he still manages to beat me. I'm out of rations(used them on accident when figuring out the controls). And I'm too lazy to back through the beginning of the game...
tk  +   2468d ago
In some cases...
I found it easiest to fight the Flying fight (after you leave Big Mama and enter the building) with the machine gun with 200 rounds.

If you used up all your rations you will be stuck in some places... had the same issue - had to go back and play a bit more carefully to get to the same point.
