After four years in the making, "Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots" has arrived exclusively for the PlayStation 3. Hideo Kojima and Kojima Production Studios have delivered a fitting ending for one of gaming's most influential characters, Solid Snake. The "Metal Gear Solid" series is considered one of the pillars of stealth action games and has influenced games like "Splinter Cell" and "Assassin's Creed." So does "Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots" live up to its promises?
"Metal Gear Solid 4" has in my opinion some of the best storytelling in gaming history. The series finally resolves, and all loose ends are successfully tied together. The game captures Old Snake as a dying war legend who just wants one thing: Liquid Ocelot's death.
This game is a definite must buy. If you do not have a PS3, then pick up the new PS3 bundle with the game. You will not be disappointed. I highly encourage any person who has not played any of the "Metal Gear Solid" games to play them before picking up MGS4. "Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots" is one of the defining points this generation and everyone deserves to experience it. I tip my hat off to Kojima-san and Company for sending Solid Snake off with the game that both he and the fans deserve. 4/4
