Big Game Hunter: Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots Review

PROS: While developer Hideo Kojima makes a mess of the plot, he has refined combat, retaining the precision required to master his previous titles. Close-quarters combat received a much needed revamp, and "Octocamo" is now the camouflage de jour, as well as a monocular. Even the cardboard box gets an upgrade

CONS: Perhaps the largest disadvantage facing MSG4 is its release on the Playstation 3, which has had mediocre sales since its release, dwarfed by Nintendo's Wii and Microsoft's workhorse, the Xbox 360. Sony tried to sweeten the deal, releasing a Metal Gear Solid Playstation 3 bundle for $600, which seems rather pricey for a gray paint job, considering how the PS 3 is already prohibitively expensive to most gamers -- not to mention the mediocre game library currently available.

However, if you are one of the faithful Playstation owners, then this is what you have been waiting for: vindication for buying the PS 3 in the first place. (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) -

I love the 360 and this actually HURTS.

these 360 fans are losing it that they can't play this game. I still don't get it. Gears 2 is right around the corner. Halo 3 is still there. Lets not forget all those "superior" multi-plats on 360. Why are they so worried about MGS4?

Another writer that has bought into the MS hype and ignored the numbers showing the PS3 has outsold the 360 worldwide since it's launch.

And that is according to Microsoft and Sony's own numbers.

And if you can't follow the plot then you need to stick to see spot run books.

Gears 2 will be seen more mediocre than the original. It will be a good title and I will pick it up but it won't have the impact of the first. There will actually be competition this time.

Not all multiplats are superior on the 360 and an increasing number are worse on the 360. Those days are gone and you are living in the past. You spent far too long not looking over your should and now that you decided to look back you see no one. They are all in front of you.

"Gears 2 is right around the corner"

Yep, but GeoW2 looks great, but looks like GeoW1 NOT MGS4.

"Halo 3 is still there"

Actually COD4 is still there on top of XBL, I play it all the time.

"Lets not forget all those "superior" multi-plats on 360"

Last year maybe, This year, NO. Most devs have already stated that they plan to make PS3 the "priority"

"Why are they so worried about MGS4?"

You probaly haven`t plaeyd it, so you would know. I have, so I do.
It`s the BEST game available. The Motorbike chase, confirms this.
Play it and see, cause any vid you`ve seen doesn`t show the rest of the game.
