The soundtrack by Harry Gregson-Williams is also top notch, Right from the title screen's performance of "Old Snake," we get a feel for the soundtrack of a dying hero. It continues with the entrancing "Love Theme" that plays in the opening credits and culminates with the beautiful if not sad "Here's to You," a perfect send off for a great series.
When I reviewed MGS 3 I said that I dare anyone to not break down during what I thought was the greatest ending of any game. I retract that previous statement because the ending of MGS 4 is phenomenal. Although it might be one of the longest endings I have seen in a game, it is well worth the price of admission, and like any good movie, make sure to stay during the end credits for a huge surprise.
But in the end, is there closure? Is this truly the end of the Metal Gear Solid series? And if so, was it worth it? Without a doubt the answer is a resounding yes! It is ironic that Guns of the Patriots came out during the middle of the summer movie season as it's truly the blockbuster that we have come to expect. It is now time for Hideo Kojima and Snake to take a long deserved rest. They earned it!
