GIN Metal Gear Solid 4 Review

By: Todd Hargosh
GiN Testing Director

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! (Industry, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) 5/5

woah. i have this game and think its defenetly 10/10 but seriously enough is enough. we dont need countless ,pointless no name reviewers to tell us they give it a 10. especially from someone who obviously picked the game up at the same time and date we all did.
timmyrulz  +   2279d ago
This cow has been milked so much its intestines are pouring through....YAWN already, are we having a competition to see how many times we can post the same thing? Im just waiting for the daily planets review.....
PirateThom  +   2279d ago
Although the scores are all the same, the reviewers and sources are different.
Whoooop  +   2279d ago
Ahhh Sh*t
Another perfect score...
Jigga69  +   2279d ago
Don't if it was already posted but...
Jeux-france.com gives a 20/20 to Metal Gear Solid 4 : http://www.jeux-france.com/...
Don't if it's already posted tho.
MazzingerZ  +   2279d ago
the thing is...
if reviewers were asked to review the game again 99% of them would probably give it the same score, MGS4 surpassed any hype unlike GTAIV...ask reviewers to give a score again to GTAIV and I'm sure it wouldn't get to many 10's again

Gamers didn't backup those 10's after playing GTAIV, we all agreed about the game being closer to a 9 than anything else, it was more of the same, updated in-game graphics, terrible graphics during cut scenes and in-doors environments...technical problems, online down on the PS3 during the first days, etc,etc

In MGS4 case both reviewers and players are agree about the score 10 being the right for this game...last time this happened was a long time ago...since the Zelda:Ocarina of time days I'd guess...the ones saying that MGS4 sucks are those that haven't played it and not because they don't want to but because they can't

No one feels let down after playing MGS4, old and new MGS fans agree about this game being great!

I pity anyone who can't play it.

I really do.

Having to hate on something so beautiful because somewhere you made the wrong decision must be painful.
mistertwoturbo  +   2279d ago
Spot on! With something so successful like MGS4, I think it's natural for people to do the whole attitude of

"OHhhHH look at meeeee. I'm anti-mainstream so i'll hate MGS4 because everyone else likes it. I'm also the same kid in high school who wears black lip stick and hates everyone else because they're normal."
SL1M DADDY  +   2279d ago
Second time through on the hardest difficulty...
And all I got to say is WOW! I love this game!
mistertwoturbo  +   2279d ago
Makes you really feel alive doesn't it?
