GamePro: MGS4 is without a doubt, one of the greatest games of all time

Every once in a long while, a game will come along and change all the rules. Final Fantasy VII transformed the RPG genre, Resident Evil helped create a new sub-category of gaming--survival horror--and Grand Theft Auto III single-handedly reshaped the gaming landscape.

And now comes Metal Gear Solid 4, a game whose potential influence on the current state of gaming is nothing short of tectonic.

And it was very well written.. I'm very glad that people are being able to see this game for what it is.. it gives us gamers a great experience.. bringing a lot of new things to the table, braking the same experience that we have been getting for a while now.

Hideo tried something new.. adding even more to the mgs series and he succeeded... the game will definitely inspire some gameplay for the next few years to come i'll assure you of that..

I love fps but when you find a great game that just really pulls you in and you become one with the character.. well that's even better.. i felt it with Uncharted but mgs just does it lots better...

Very excited about this game.. it took a bit to come out, but like so many people said when haters were talking trash about ps3 not having games.. "Good things come to those who wait".. and we're getting the best

MikeGdaGod5418d ago

i just bought MG Essentials today to get me ready for it.

Mr_President_5418d ago

Anybody who doesn't play this loses their right to be called a gamer.

Lifendz5418d ago

remember all the talk about it being multi-platform by so many people (and gaming media people) even after Hideo and Sony said it's a PS3 exclusive? Well I guess we now know why. Get your money up fellas. You're going to want to play this game.

Tomdc5418d ago

lol i love the forum post's after it:

"wow! One of the greatest games of all time!"

because if 1 mag says it in a review it must be true....

Obviously it is true btw I mean it is MGS4!!! Jus funny how their opinions are so easily influenced

theKiller5418d ago

after MGS4, u will rarely see many 10/10 thats for sure, because before they give a game 10/10 they will think "ahh wait is this the same level as MGS4??" of course the answer is no so they will pull back a bit to 9/10 at best!

i said it before and i will say it now, this game will be in top 5 games of all time

Monchichi0255418d ago

Anyone surprised??? LMAO We all know they are and have always been in bed with Sony. But I'll wait till IGN reviews it before deciding if I'll pick this up...

Heavy-h5418d ago

And ive got the comsole to play it on,

It looks, sounds and feels amazing that it made grown men Cry, what kind of mad genius could do this? one word, Kojima!

deepio5418d ago (Edited 5418d ago )

"only the PS3 has the power to run the game"

Wasn't it Kojima who said it's technically possible for Metal Gear Solid 4 to run on Xbox 360 hardware?

Fallen_Angel5417d ago

wow cant believe that such a blind ingorant fanboy remark like Hydrolex's got 31 agrees in the "gaming zone" no less it tells you how lame this site has become.

Its hard to take gamepro to serious for me I remember when (maybe they still do) they had those stupid lil red faces for a 5.0. and they score 5 games a month perfect. Not to say mgs isnt a good game I just prefer to get my reviews from ign and gameinformer or egm

BattleAxe5417d ago

MGS 2+3 were 2 of the best games ever made, so theres no doubt that MGS4 will be one of the best of all time.

MGS4 and SOCOM are going to sell alot of consoles.

thePatriot5417d ago


Black Maverick5417d ago

People seem to always misquote Kojima. What he actually said was that the 2006 trailer he released could technically be reproduced on the Xbox 360. He never said anything about the actual game.

I'm personally not discounting the XBox 360's power to run MGS4 but I'm just saying that Kojima never actually said it.

lessthanmarcus5417d ago

..if MGS4 can beat out Halo 3 sales in terms of exclusives. This is definitely a system seller as was Halo 3 for me.


BUT BTUT BUT i thouthg teh pstriple waz d0000m3d?

its gonna be a hot summer........and you know xboxes cant stand the heat.

Yipee Bog5415d ago

I love the only con they could find in the game, stress indicator. If this is the only gripe they could find then this is really great news.
Also the PSM review for MGS4 is ultimately identical, I haven't seen such similar reviews for a single game yet, until now.

Evil is powerful...but courage is SOLID
:D Believe it people, MGS4 is one of the greatest games of ALL TIME

The scan doesn't show the score though, this should be a rumor but i knew gamepro would dish out a 10

AlterEgo5418d ago

until at least some scans were available, but after seeing some of the things that get approved here....

i just went for it lol

sonarus5418d ago

Yea i knew gamepro would give it a 10 plus you don't call a game greatest of all time without giving it a 10

AlterEgo5418d ago

lol true, if it wasn't...

that'd be pretty boneheaded of them

badz1495418d ago

be a game, even GTAIV that should had achieved perfect 10 if 10 is an indication of perfections! but THE 10 has lately becoming common after GTAIV and 10 is no longer means 'perfect' like many have thought it should had been! I'm enjoying GTAIV but it's nowhere near 10 with its glitches everywhere and old style graphics! after almost all major sites gave 10 to GTAIV before april 29th, I lost faith in reviewers especially IGN and GS as they clearly aiming for larger hits from users by giving a 10 that easily. that's why I didn't even bothered when IGN gave HAZE a 4.5 because if they were saying HAZE sucked, I knew that they SUCK even more!! so, what about MGS4 then? from what I've seen so far, it deserves more praise than what GTAIV was getting and a couples more 10 is highly predictable! It's interesting to see what IGN and GS will give it though. as for me, I'm very sure MGS4 will be AWESOME and I'll get it regardless, but I'm not saying it'll be perfect because 10 is no more a PERFECTION!

Watkins5418d ago

True that, it sucks that GTA IV got a perfect 100. I finished the game, and then there was nothing more to do. Online was crappy and the extra missions wasn't rewarding (200 pigeons for a heli ... uhm?)

beavis4play5418d ago

yea, i felt let down by GTA4 too. story was so-so, targeting system still bad, and missions seemed repetitive. then there was the freeze-ups and in game glitches. can't wait for MGS4. i'm trading GTA in for credit on the 12th.

Voiceofreason5417d ago

You knew that GamePro would give it a 10? LMAO sure you did... You do know they dont use a score system with a 10 in it right? Its all 5's

iHEARTboobs5417d ago

That's true, gamepro only gives out a 5 at best. But MGS4 will get a 5 and so will MGO. So that equals a 10! haha

its not one of the greatest games of all time, it is the GREATEST GAME OF ALL TIME!!!!!

Rikitatsu5418d ago

i am sure its great , but not my best

that place holds Shenmue

Maverick_5418d ago

LOL Someone actually agreed with you saying Shenmue will be better than MGS4??? LAWL

I smell steaming angry XBOTS!!! HAHAHAHHA

Rikitatsu5418d ago (Edited 5418d ago )

So,Saying That another game on a SEGA console is better than MGS4 is fanboysim ?

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Get a freakin life Fanboys , seriously !

And WOW @ People Disagreeing with me, I said its the Number 1 one on my list, and you disagree that Isn't the number 1 on my list :P LOOOOOOOOOOL!!!

Maverick_5418d ago

First of all you haven't even played MGS4 have you??/ No wait... you haven't, you're a TROLL and MGS4 and about 30 other games destroys the Dreamcast game Shenmue. Come back to 2008. Stop trolling. Shenmue has nothing to do with MGS4 and no one cares if you like the 10 year old Dreamcast game, Shenmue. ; )

GiantEnemyCrab5418d ago

So Maverick you have played MGS4? And the over zealous #1 commentor? To claim that it is better than Shenmue or as #1 said the greatest game of all time?

Pot meet kettle.

Xlll5418d ago

So much for that comment about U.S. reviews being low for MGS4. Xbots fail again.

Rikitatsu5418d ago

You are intelligent my son

Did you Play MGS4 ? LOL

stop Spouting nonsense , i played Shenmue and i know how awesome it is, but i don't know how MGS4 will fare so STFU!

n4gzz5418d ago

where do you live dude ?? I will send you my old ps2, may be you can see what this hype is about when you play MGS series. But do not disrespect MGS4. No gamer should do. Its the finest Art in video game's history.

LenHart5418d ago


why arent you hiding old man. Please go hide.

quick quick quick

Maverick_5418d ago (Edited 5418d ago )

Title of the thread:"GamePro: MGS4 is without a doubt, one of the greatest games of all time"

This has NOTHING to do with 10-year-old Shenmue. Stop trolling.

"[MGS4] sets new standards for graphics, sound, gameplay, and storytelling, and it may be years before it is equaled, let alone surpassed. You will not play a better game this year -- maybe even this decade. If you own a PS3, buy this game the day it comes out. And if you don't own a PS3, well, you better start saving your nickels and dimes."

hahahahahah DIE BOTS. PS3 just TRASHED every game on the RRODbox. PS3 has about 20 more huge Exclusives in the works. hahahhaa this is soooo funny.


RonDeMuerte5418d ago

talking about Shenmue??!!!

Homicide5418d ago

The greatest game to come out this gen period. Sorry bots and wiitards, it's time to jump out and PLAY B3YOND! Giant Enemy Crab is butthurt after those MGS4 scores. They're outscoring Ninja Gaiden 1.5 ;D

DarkSniper5418d ago

Actually, Rikitasu holds a very strong point in what he says. Dark Sniper wholeheartedly agrees that the Shenmue universe is slightly more intriguing than that of Metal Gear Solid.

While Dark Sniper knows for sure he will be enjoying the true power of PLAYSTATION®3 when Metal Gear Solid 4 comes out. He will never forget that Shenmue WILL ALWAYS hold a dear and special place in his heart forever. Hence the origin of Dark Sniper's avatar.


Rikitatsu5418d ago

Rikitatsu agrees with You while ignoring the Fanboys , and the supporters of the baby killers ;)

themyk5418d ago

you guys are fuking cracking me up

GiantEnemyCrab5418d ago (Edited 5418d ago )

Tell me where I slated MGS4 at all in my comment? Please learn some reading comprehension. If anything this is the POS3's swan song, it's about time. But don't for a moment slag the 360 because the last time I checked it had many AAA titles as well as a couple GOTY's under its belt.

And Nasim, you keep on calling me Mart you mentally ill mofo.

@1.18: Fair enough and I agree with you and I don't see anything wrong with celebrating a great game on your platform. But if it can't be enjoyed without trying to take a diss on the 360 or it's games than I call bullsh*t.(not that you did that but others have). You might want to add (in my opinion) to your post.

DarkSniper5418d ago

Thank you Rikitasu for keeping the hope of Shenmue III alive. Ryo's quest to exact revenge on Lan Di must be fufilled someway and somehow. Even if it means switching discussion on what Dark Sniper truly thinks will be the greatest game of all time (MGS4), to the strongest gaming cult following of all time.

If Shenmue III and Metal Gear Solid 4 both hit store shelves on June 12th at the same time, Dark Sniper would honestly purchase Shenmue III first.

pwnsause5418d ago

everyones entitled to their own opinion, thats the beauty of gaming, people have their different tastes in terms what their favorate game is, it is their reason why they play to this very day

Dacapn5418d ago (Edited 5418d ago )

Ya must realize this is open zone. Logic doesn't apply here.

And baby killers...really?

chaosatom3335418d ago


juuken5418d ago (Edited 5418d ago )

...Wow, damage control all around!
Don't cry GiantEnemyCrap...I know you wanted to see the PS3 fail but this game is only the beginning of MS's woes. They tried to release NG2 in front of a masterpiece and now that masterpiece is about to run over that poor game.

And Rikitatsu dear, PLEASE get over yourself. Not even Shenmue the dolphin can beat this game.

Pain5417d ago (Edited 5417d ago )

What? A Great Game Thats Not on RROD2??? OMG WTF....get used to it..

After MGS4 devolpers wont want to make old gen Games on RROD2,

Cuz they will see the GREATNESS of what PS3 can Offer so its bye bye.

oh and Ill say it for Crab and other Bots, your line is: M$ DEFENSE FORCE HOOOOO!!!!!!

ThatCanadianGuy5417d ago

You cant honestly compare MGS4..

Like wow..

i've never even herd of shenmue thats how terrible it must be..

And you expect it to rival the little slice of heaven that is Hideo Kojima's imagination?

Montrealien5417d ago (Edited 5417d ago )

(i've never even herd of shenmue thats how terrible it must be.. )


I agree with the fact that MGS4 will be a very good game, however Shenmu was something Very, Very, Special when it came out....Almost 10 years ago!

Gaming History 101 kids, learn where we came from to appreciate where we are.

5417d ago
cmrbe5417d ago

You are in the wrong zone my friend and people. He is just stating that MGS4 is not his best game ever. Its kind of stupid for you people to jump on him for saying so but then again. This is the FUN ZONE :)

If GTAIV gets goty over this game I'm never buying a GTA game again out of pure spite.

PirateThom5418d ago

I've never buying another GTA game full stop. Overrated garbage.

Although, I've said that since Vice City and I always end up buying it.

Whoooop5418d ago

The game wasn't bad.. Sure it was hyped too much and sure reviews exagerated a bit, but all and all it's a salid cool game.

While I had more fun in Vice City and SA, IMO Niko Bellic is the best Main Character in the series. He is far more interesting than the others (IMO.

I'm going to keep buying GTA's as long as they don't sell their souls to EA.

PirateThom5418d ago

I don't think the games are bad, I just get bored of them really quickly. Not to take anything away from Rockstar, who do an amazing job on each game, but I've only ever finished the main missions of Vice City and Liberty City Stories.

Maverick_5418d ago (Edited 5418d ago )

A couple of quotes:

"This is video game story telling at it's absolute best, and represents a new high watermark for the craft, EASILY surpassing the superb BioShock and the subversive Grand Theft Auto IV."

"To play the core of the game you only need to use four main buttons: aim, shoot, crawl, and use. That the game squeezes so much functionality out of such a simple interface is one of it's crowning achievements."

And we get Bioshock too! Year of the PS3!!

Maverick_5418d ago (Edited 5418d ago )

????????????????????????????? ?????????????????????????????? ? ?????????????????????????????? ??? DUDE WTF!!! I KNEW it would be amazing but this is ridiculous.

MGS4 sounds like it's going to trash EVERYTHING.

LMFAOROFLOLOLOLOLOL @ ANYONE who doubted Kojima in ending Solid Snake's journey.

Seriously Everyone just get a PS3 so we can play this together!!!! THAT SOUNDS INCREDIBLE, AMAZING.... DUDE EVERYTHING GOT OWNED x 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,00 0,000
