juuken3782d ago

Playing this game tonight.
It deserves 200%.
I have never seen a game that pays so much attention to detail and combat. I felt like I was in the middle of a real-time war.

mikeslemonade3781d ago

Come on guys we have to bump up the metacritic score back up to 9.6!

ape0073781d ago

no we can't,cause konami isn't like rockstar or bungie,make a crappy game with a crappy production values then pay to get bumped up

this will be remembered as the greatest game of all time and the most underrated game of all time,trust me

JackBauerIsHIGH3781d ago

just wanted to say congrats on your team. it's the ONLY boston team i can support due to my NY blood (Pats and Red Sox can go to hell!)

OT: This game deserves every ounce of praise it is receiving. I want to rush through and play it but I can't stop creeping through the levels and admiring every inch of it!

It may be the best game I've ever played, but how is it under rated? All of my friends, even the hardcore xbox fans are going insane over the hype! Plus, don't forget that ratings from IGN + Gamespot + Gameinformer WERE ALL 10.0/10.0. Considering I pretty much only look at IGN anyways, it is in no way underrated to me. The only thing better I think is to give it a 12/10, because it really is a game worth MORE than $60 IMO.

beavis4play3781d ago

they're still not reviewing it because they think kojima is hiding some "bad" issues with the game.

hey egm, MGS4 is one of the best(if not the best) games ever made. your review doesn't mean crap!

dvx uk3782d ago

So theres NO faults??

SpenserTracy3782d ago

It is really the best game i've ever played.

Surfman3782d ago

honestly, the gameplay gets more fun minutes after minutes. And no, no flaws. Ok probably only the iPod, which is nice but would have been nice to add our own songs. You have a PS3? No choice: you have to buy MGS4. Best game i've ever play.

ape0073782d ago

just play it dude,it will knock you out unconscious

brilliant man,just too good to be true.

It is one of the very rare games that better with every second you play. Every act brings something new into the gameplay and that is not just some talk, I guarantee you that. Every act has some unique gameplay. Period.
The story is beyond epic. I cried four times, no joke. If it wouldn't have been for the lack of sleep, I would have finished in one sitting (had to take a break after the first sitting of 12 (!) hours). Although I "only" needed about 16 hours to get through it on the first time through, it was worth every moment. This is more than just a game. This is the experience of a lifetime. THIS is ART. Kudos to Kojima for making the best game I personally ever played.
After the game there is MGO, which will keep you busy a long time - if you are into this kind of stuff, of course. It would be hard to not like it, though.
So, MGS4 has practically infinite replay value (scoring all the ranks, unlocking every thing, finding all easter eggs, simply experiencing it AGAIN because it IS that awesome) and MGO adds to that even more due to being online multiplayer.
Verdict? Buy it. Now. Seriously, stand up, go out and buy it. No way around it.

I haven't played it yet either ... but only because my Dad's receiver broke so I donated him mine. Why? Well my old one wouldn't take HDMI audio, so no high def audio on that receiver. Just bought an HK AVR247 ($225 from Harman's ebay store) with PCM over HDMI, so I can now play MGS4 over High Def Audio Surround Sound. Kojima didn't want to compress his audio, so you shouldn't either!

Just waiting for the damn receiver to come in. Gotta stay away from spoilers until then.

I can't agree more with this review. This game is remarkable. And, yes, it does 1080 even when 720 is on (and I don't really care, if that is upscaled or not. Visuals are just phenomenal).

mightydog013781d ago

I can honestly say this is the best game I've ever played. Its Awesome in epic gameplay+gfx+sound and story its a master of a game one of a kind hands-down
