Jolt reviews Metal Gear Solid 4

Jolt reports:

''Snake has gotten old – so old that the now not-so-solid and slightly infirm Snake is referred to as "Old Snake" throughout the many acts of Guns of the Patriots. Suffering with a bad back and painfully aware of his own mortality, it's not just Snake's decrepit presence on the battlefield that underlines his maturity. Kojima's fourth entry in the book of Snake is something of a Greatest Hits package for a 20-year-old franchise.

Metal Gear Solid 4 arrives almost ten years after the first Metal Gear Solid made such an impact on the PlayStation one, and here we are in 2008, with Solid Snake – old as he may be – coming to the rescue of Sony's latest console during a time of commercial peril. To compare the effect of Guns of the Patriots to that earlier foray into Shadow Moses would be both dishonest and unfair, though. There's no disguising the fact that, put in the context of the very franchise it's a part of, Metal Gear Solid 4 disappoints.'' (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) 8/10

I think I was
playing a different game from this reviewer. I still can't find the 'disappointment' anywhere. Can you?

lol
Yeah I was totally disappointed. lol. /sarcasm

I actually thought the last 2 acts of MGS4 made up the best ending to any game I've ever played, but that's just me of course.
