Calgary Herald Metal Gear Solid 4 Review

By Nick Lewis

We in the hardcore gaming public have become so spoiled by the occasional fantastic video game (i.e. Call of Duty 4) that any product showing even a hint of mediocrity (i.e. Haze, Turok) is dismissed, mocked and quickly forgotten.

So for a decade-old franchise such as Metal Gear Solid to blow us away yet again after consistently raising the bar is really an achievement.

Ultimately, Metal Gear Solid 4 is a brilliant hurrah for the legendary Solid Snake and a fantastic achievement for the 44-year-old Kojima. But really, it is a coup for Sony, which has exclusive rights for it for the PlayStation 3 alone. (Industry, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) 5/5

juuken  +   2620d ago
...Sweet Lord. I have never seen so many 5's and 10's in my entire life. That average has got to be around 9.9 or 9.8 by now.
Silogon  +   2620d ago
This just in

The Outhouse Gazette reviews MGS4!!!

They gave it a 4 out 10!!

Anyone and everyone is reviewing this game and it's getting old.
clintos59  +   2620d ago
I think I just seen one on tv with KFC reviewing it aswell. Saying if u go to KFC and show them the game cover and the game of course in the case, u get 10 pieces of chicken original or crispy on the house, lol.
Superfragilistic  +   2620d ago
Lol. Yeah I agree, most of these sites and newspapers I've never heard of! I'll stick to the Metacritic one's which is full of tens anyway, not that it matters since I've already finished it twice. lol :p
harrisk954  +   2620d ago
According to Metacritic
GTA4's metascore is based upon 61 reviews, while MGS4's metascore is based upon 53 reviews! EVERY game that is a major release will have dozens of reviews.

By the way, speaking of Metacritic. It is back down to 94 (with a user score of 9.1); GTA4 is at 98 (with 7.9 user score).
xhairs  +   2620d ago
You know
I wish the real score was the user score simply because of the fact that GTA4 has a user score of 7.1 and a reviewer score of 98. That simply shows that the game isn't what it's cut out to be. However the variety of MGS4 user scores & reviewer scores is so close, it shows its true worth. I unlocked the 3rd island in GTA4 and never put the game back in my PS3. I found myself playing more call of duty and even rainbow six 2 than GTA4 while waiting for the arrival of MGS4.

I am on the 4th chapter
and its awesome. I am a little disappointed because of all the hype. Its a great game, but I hope the end is as spectacular as everyone says.
DJ  +   2620d ago
Just make sure to stick through the end credits.
...All three of them.
Le-mo  +   2620d ago
You are one crazy gun haha. Bubble for you.
clintos59  +   2620d ago
lmao thanx and heres a bubble right back to u..
Call me crazy but im just a huge fan of the series, and so I always try an find reviews just to put a smile on fans faces who purchased the game, just to show them, they arent alone when they think of how awesome MGS4 is. Believe me, its not only u saying that, its also most of the mjority of the gaming industry that agrees with u aswell including myself. :)

Yep Yep
(Sound) Achievement unlocked!
Harry190  +   2620d ago
I think they already locked the N4G metascore.
It happened with GTA4 too. So,MGS4 will be a solid 9.6 now(ON n4g).
This probably makes it the highest rated game here alongside GTA4 I believe. I think N4G's metascore is better than other sites like Gamerankings and Metacritic since everything web based eventually lands here.

Harry 190 will make an announcement shortly concerning his future on N4G and his allegiance to a console.I shall put at risk all my bubbles and my account.

Look for it in the Open Zone.(Not in this article necessarily)
Thank you for your participation.

the anticipation is killing me.
DarK-SilV  +   2620d ago
I would love to see it ,when are you going to post it
Harry190  +   2620d ago
I don't really know.Soon.
It will be a comedic effort and an attempt to reach N4g glory like Dark Sniper, Bloodmask, Bill Gates, High Definition, Kaz, Power of Green, Nasim/Schmee/Lenhart,Breakfast , Monty the Great, Dark-Silv, Obama, Condoleeza, Ken Kutaragi, HarryEttubman, Mailman and the rest of the clique.

Seriously,I want to become like them.An N4G personality and risk all my bubbles. For sure,I don't have the same talent at making jokes,but I will try.

N4G is all about the fun and I shall join the side with the funniest and most witty members,and right now,we know what it is.
