Los Angeles times MGS4 review

If most video games are the equivalent of comic books, with their Bang! Pow! action and bright, saturated colors, then Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is more like "War and Peace." Giant, involved, plodding and, yes, at times even confusing, MGS4 will surely be loved by those familiar with the epic series. For anyone late to the train, don't even try to jump on now, you'll just end up confused and bored.

It is always the same ol' predictable crap from the fanboys. Not so great score for PS3, the reviewer is a fool. Great score for PS3, they finally got it right. Not so great score for 360, proves that 360 games suck. Great score for 360, conspiracy theory.

You guys are worse than a broken recorder and a whiny ol' virgin put together.

Fact is MGS4 as a game doesn't appeal to many people. I spent 3 hours playing it last night and frankly, if not for the cut-scenes, I'd not have been impressed much. The truth is I found Splinter Cell's gameplay to be much more exciting and realistic than what I've played thus far. And honestly, how much excitement can you get from crawling past guards who patrol in circles in the same way over and over again? And the loading times and frequency of them are demerits too. Great presentation and graphics put this game above the rest, but that does not appeal to everyone.

'Fact is MGS4 as a game doesn't appeal to many people'

Care to check the sales charts for your so called 'facts'

'ol' predictable crap from the fanboys'

Oh, and there are no 360 fanboys on this site responding in a similar fashion, to 360 games and reviews. Your arguments seem much more intelligent and believeable when you blast both sides for doing the same things. The way you state it, the only way you would be more visible as a fanboy is to light yourself aflame.

'For anyone late to the train, don't even try to jump on now, you'll just end up confused and bored'

Or you could download the encyclopedia and catch up on past parts of the story.

Where are all the horses' heads, I can only seem to find the other ends?

Cut-screens - damn, I hate those things ;)

I'm okay with bad reviews for games I don't like, but this guy is ignorant about MGS and games in general.

What the hell do they know about games?
