SPOnG Review: Metal Gear Solid 4 (99.999/100)

Reviewed by Tim Smith, he writes:

"Seeing The Sex Pistols in Birmingham (England, not Alabama) recently presented the kind of an experience that playing Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (GotP) has done.

Both provided the chance to see familiar old faces (or at least aged ones); to hear lots of old and familiar ideas (some of which had been updated but not so they were in anyway discomfiting); to repeat activities that were once exciting and vibrant and are now just plain good fun.

However, while the Pistols came on, played songs, gave some cheeky banter, did some encores and then pissed off practically unconcerned as to whether I got every single inference of every word, GotP really, really wanted me to love and understand it.

No, I'm not being entirely honest there – it wanted me to love and understand it and it's entire family going back to the beginning of Metal Gear Solid time."

SPOnG Score:
99.999% (for fans)
90% for those new to the lore.

Conclusions
Two sets of conclusions:

First: for the seasoned MGS fanboy. It's the greatest game that has ever or will ever be created. The only flaw is that it does not kill you personally when it ends – because you have nothing else to live for. The reason it doesn't get 100% is because it actually does end.

Second: for the occasional MGS fan or new gamer. This, apparently final, iteration of the franchise will delight if you don't get lost in the cut-scenes. Enjoyable game-play, graphics and audio that make something out of your PS3 that you could feel was worth calling a return on (gaming) investment. (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) 99.999/100

Can you feel how much I care about what people I don't know personally think of me?

(above comment is assuming that the pretext of your comment is directed at me)
