Atomic Gamer reviews Metal Gear Solid 4

Matt Cabral reports:

''Konami and Kojima have been teasing fans for years with Metal Gear Solid 4; barely whetting the appetite of the franchise's faithful following with the occasional trailer or screen, they've managed to keep the title on the minds of gamers since it was first announced at E3 in 2005. Now, three year's later, we finally get our hands on this potential PS3 system-seller, and find out why the hell Solid Snake is so damn old.

Of course, the source of the mulleted (and now mustachioed) hero's geriatric state is just one of multiple questions this series has posed over the years. It's with these many mysteries, as well as the twisty narrative that spawned them, the seminal series has polarized players. While the franchise is respected and adored like few others in the industry, it's slowly separated the hardcore from the super-hardcore since its debut on the PlayStation. The first game was a must-play for any PS1 owner, but the second began to lose some less faithful fans with its lengthy cutscenes and pretty boy protagonist Raiden. The third continued the love-it-or-hate-it trend; a backstory set in the 60s and some unconventional gameplay tweaks had some claiming it was the best entry yet, while others couldn't get into the deep camo system, and despised the sound of Snake's grumbling stomach signaling a tedious hunt for stamina-sustaining wildlife.'' (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) 96/100
