Ripten Review MGS4: "An Overwhelming Experience"

Ripten's Patrick Steen writes:

"In the not too distant future, videogames have become routine. The marketplace is controlled by commercial enterprises, publishing the same fast paced action year on year. FPS game follows FPS game, bald space marines give birth to bald space marines, EA merges with Ubisoft.

Yes, in the not too distant future, videogames haven't changed at all. What's worse? We're none the wiser. Feeding off of these adrenaline pumping experiences, we praise them for their apparent innovation, their direct and exciting plot, their "next-gen" graphics. We'll feel happy with the cards we've been dealt, comfortable in our past time, but for all our contentment we'll never know how it could have been. Never know how it should and would have been if we had taken notice of Solid Snake.

Our only hope to free ourselves from cookie-cutter experiences pumped out by profit driven companies, is to learn the lessons of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots and build a safer future for interactive entertainment." (Metal Gear Online, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3) 9.6/10
