Metal Gear Solid 4 has been the most anticipated PS3 title since the console's conception, and it doesn't disappoint. The very few slightly negative reviews out there (Zero Punctuation, to name one) use obsolete arguments against the game that don't apply any more about the controls.
The only real drawback is the story and cutscenes that push Metal Gear Solid towards being an interactive film as much as a game. The story, however, is terrific, and there's still plenty of gameplay to be found.
