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. 5/5
