New University Metal Gear Solid 4 Review

'Metal Gear' Proves to be Nothing Short of 'Solid'

By Patrick Ross

The game industry rarely sees gems that can be classified as masterpieces. "Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots" is, unquestionably, one of those scarcities.

Director Hideo Kojima has corrected all the mistakes from "Sons of Liberty" and "Snake Eater," as well as added several new key features that make "Guns of the Patriots" the definitive "Metal Gear" game.

Fortunately, the longer scenes are well spaced, mostly following after a mission and rarely in the middle of action. Kojima was careful not to place too much emphasis on the cinematic elements; the gameplay comes first. It is highly refined and sets the standard for the stealth genre. You can still have fun even if you skip the entire story.

"Metal Gear Solid 4" is the definitive stealth action game, refining the sneaking mechanics to perfection and adding brand new elements to make it feel fresh. The story is entertaining, and the codec communication makes the characters organic as their stories develop through conversation. Kojima draws every thread together from the last 20 years of the series to create a very near-perfect action experience. "Guns of the Patriots" is sure to be a classic. (Industry, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) 5/5
