Gamer 2.0 reviews Metal Gear Solid 4

Chris Selogy reports:

''Metal Gear Solid 4 is finally here. The biggest PS3 game everyone has been waiting for these past three years is out now and we can finally see if the wait was worth it. With the fourth iteration of the Metal Gear Solid series, Hideo Kojima attempts to finally put an end to Snake's tale once and for all while reworking the gameplay to be a much more appealing game for outsiders to the series to play. Does Metal Gear Solid 4 manage to live up to the hype or are Snake's last moments wasted?

Metal Gear Solid 4 takes place five years after the Big Shell Incident that occurred at the end of Metal Gear Solid 2. Old Snake, aging at a rapid pace, is after Liquid Ocelot, who is in the Middle East and is definitely up to no good. With a large cast of characters returning from previous games, Kojima does a great job of keeping track of all of their storylines and wrapping things up as the game nears the end. Instead of essentially one continuous level like in previous MGS games, MGS4 is split up into five acts, allowing for more easily consumable chunks of the game. The game manages to do a very good job of mixing fan service, nostalgia, and enough attempts to explain things for those new to the series that it shouldn't be too hard for most to get through the game and get the gist of what's going on.'' (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) 9.8/10

im gonna have to try the mgo
because value seems to be where they always dock points. I thought the multiplayer would automatically add value! I haven't touched mgo yet and i'm on my second time through the single campaign!

the value isnt apparent to everyone. You expect killer game play and hollywood killing cinematics for a budget price? You pay for this sh*t. And smile while your doing it. ;)
