METAL GEAR SOLID 4 has got to be the WORST Metal Gear game in the series since Metal Gear Solid 2. I wanted to play the game but after crawling and sneaking my way through a few small maps in several areas, I found myself having to suffer through countless hours of boring movie scenes. Even the ending didn't help redeem it in any way. The only redeeming factor of this game was the boss battles which I hoped would only get better after facing off with Octopus but they actually seemed to get easier and more uninteresting until the major faceoff with the two metal gears beating the crap out of each other which was definitely the highlight of the game and I thoroughly enjoyed it for what it was but let's be honest, the play control on the REX metal gear sucked. The last stand between Snake and Liquid where you are punching the crap out of each other was so horrible when it came to play control that I wanted to take my six axis controller and boomerang it at the programmers of this game. I am glad that Kojima will never make another Metal Gear title. What ever happened to the GREATNESS of Metal Gear Solid 3? Metal Gear Solid 3 was definitely the defining moment of the series and we should just leave it at that. If you want to not be disappointed, don't buy MGS4, it will only drain your wallet and leave you with a bad taste in your mouth of buyer's remorse. Borrow this title from any fool who was dumb enough to buy it.
I dont even bother looking at the metacritics comments because I know most of them who rate it a 0 or 2 or whatever are just desperate fanboys. MGS4 IMO deserves a 10, it has some minor flaws, but that doesnt change the fact that it is one of the greatest game I have ever played.
Another day another perfect score. loving it.
Just got back home yesterday and got to wrap it up earlier tonight. Simply put it's a beautiful game from top to bottom. And while the cut scenes are rediculously long at times it's a well written story and joy to watch them. I didn't care much for any of the previous MGS's and aside from MGS2 didn't get very far into any of them; I own them all [PS2/GC]. But MGS4 was great from top to bottom. And while my tactical stealth skills sucked cause I'm to Gun-Ho I enjoyed MGS4 every second it was playing. Certainly a true Gaming Masterpiece imho.
