Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots PS3 Review
29 May 2010
Excerpt: I have got to admit that over the course of the Metal Gear Solid series I have grown fond of the recurring cast. The story has always been compelling enough to endure the long and fantastic cut-scenes, which have always been lengthy enough to bring about mixed feelings amongst gamers.

Excerpt: Its no secret that the release of the final chapter in the Metal Gear Solid series, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, is a huge deal in the gaming world. I limit the sequel’s influence to the aforementioned “gaming world” because even though Solid Snake might be your favorite video game protagonist, he doesn’t have the mainstream appeal and name recognition enjoyed by other recent “big name” releases such as Mario Galaxy, Halo 3, Guitar Hero or (groan) Grand...

Excerpt: It is a rare occurrence when a video game has the ability to move a person in a way much like the films of today. In 1998 video game director Hideo Kojima blurred the line between game and movie with the release of his first masterpiece, Metal Gear Solid . Nearly ten years later, this now ancient PlayStation title has spawned three direct sequels and a number of spin-offs.
