Metal Gear Solid 4 (MGS4): Guns of the Patriots Review (PS3)
9 July 2013
Conclusion: There is no way to write about this game without providing spoilers at this point, so if you don't like that sort of thing, turn away now. Still here? Good, now I can openly gush about the game that reminded me how much fun this hobby can be. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is a game that deserves applause. Not only were the expectations high, but it had a huge convoluted story to tie together.
Pros: If you were looking for a reason to buy a PS3, this is it, Perhaps one of the most clever games in recent years, Takes everything you loved about the series to the next level, Brilliant level design allows for stealth or gun play, Easily as moving as many films out there, If you were looking for a reason to buy a PS3, this is it, Perhaps one of the most clever games in recent years, Takes everything you loved about the series to the next level, Brilliant level design ...
Cons: Story might be over the top for folks new to the series, First person mode feels tacked on, only seems useful for sniping, Some may find the Big Boss Mode too easy, Cutscenes do run a bit long at times (especially in the end), If you are going to have this much kissing in a game, shouldn't it look less "robotic?", Story might be over the top for folks new to the series, First person mode feels tacked on, only seems useful for sniping, Some may find the Big Boss Mode t...
Excerpt: Once again, Kojima and crew have "spared no expense" in making Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots one of the most visually stunning games available on the system. The character models are eerily life-like, right down to the subtlest of muscle twitches and body movements. While most of the early footage would lead you to believe the entire game takes place in dusty middle-eastern streets, that's only about a quarter of the game.
Summary: Parents need to know that this game is part of the Metal Gear franchise, which spans several games, books, comics, soundtrack CDs, and toys. It ' a violent and decidedly mature game featuring extensive and bloody gunplay and knife fights, as well as glamorized use of tobacco, romantic topics, and some profanity. However, the game's primary theme is one of pacifism.
Conclusion: Despite its intrusive storyline, Metal Gear Solid 4 is a varied, engaging and entertaining epic. It may diminish slightly towards the end of the game, but there could be no greater reward for the fans’ patience than this.
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3) Review
21 August 2008
Summary: I’ve always grown up with the notion that a 10/10 means a game is perfect and that no improvements can be made upon the genera. But MGS4 has changed my perception of this, and anything less than a 10 seems like a travesty in my opinion. While MGS4 is not perfect, I can’t honestly say I’ve ever been more emotionally connected to a video game before.
Excerpt: To all of you who have played even one of the past games from the series, I have this to say: this game was made for you. Every character and conflict finds closure; every question is answered; and yet there are still surprises.
