Analog Hype writes: "Metal Gear Solid 4 has up to this point been one of the biggest titles of 2008. This most anticipated sequel in a year of big anticipated sequels has come, and unfortunately, has gone for the most part, and we missed the review train, but for a game as great as Metal Gear Solid 4, it's never too late to catch the next train. Hit the jump for my review of the game.
From the moment you boot up the game disc, to when you first take the reigns of Solid Snake, are just crazy enough. The experience continues into a war-torn battlefield, filled with not only broken bones and lifeless bodies, but a world of chaos and lost cause. You play as Solid Snake, the legendary Hero of the series, who is poised to serve in not only his final mission, but quite possibly his final game. Snake, who has progressively aged faster than should be expected, has only a short amount of time before he "dies", and his fate depends on this last truck through the MGS universe. Despite the game's amazing quality, there does exist a few pitfalls. I'm trying not to spoil TOO much, so I will do a shorter bullet-point style review that was started by our friend Donnie B. I'll tell you what I loved and hated about the game, and why."
