Only The Games' Metal Gear Solid 4 Review

Erik Rapson of Only The Games writes: "Oddly, it's something of an accurate send off that's true to the rest of the series. It embodies the era of gaming in which it was first conceived. But old times and everything that once stood as grand and mighty within them ultimately slip away as distant memories of what was once common and accepted. For all your shortcomings Old Snake, you will always remain a venerable and timeless symbol of heroism. But like like all legends, you exist better in memory." (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) 4/5

Honestly, I think this guy's review is more exhausting, heavy-handed and uncompromising than Kojima's narrative.

It's not just you, everyone is getting on the mgs4 review train. Hell even faux news had a review for it.

Review Train?
"Is it me or does it seem that their are HUNDREDS of unknown and new review sites coming out of everywhere for this game?"

I highly doubt that new sites were created to review MGS4.

Why wouldn't there be? The game gets bashed enough here, don't you think xbots would make some BS site to bash MGS4 even more.

You give fanboys way too much credit. Besides, I haven't even seen a single review under 8 out of 10 or equivalent. Fox News is the lowest, but a 3 out of 4 is by no means a terrible score.

I wasn't
Implying that the sole reason some sites were made to "bring MGS4 ratings up/down" that's a bit of a stretch for me to say. But i DO think there have been quite a few lesser known sites about gaming that has done a MGS4 review to get noticed. It was the same way for when Halo 3 came out, everyone and their great aunt had a review about it.

Perfect review! IMO!
This guy hit the nail on the head and drove it in.
