Summary: well this was my first time getting into the series , and i didnt like this game that much i tryed to play at night i lowered my volume on the tv(cause i didnt want to wake my parents) i didnt hear any of the guys voices but i did hear the loud gunshots, the gameplay kinda suked the only fun part was sneaking around people , but when you try shooting it just sux!
Summary: This is the first metal gear solid game i have played and it will definatly be the last. The cutscense are way to long and boring, the gameplay is dry with only little parts of actually playing, and overall it just was not for me. I felt compelled to by it since i have a PS3 but now that i have it i know i will never beat it. Save your money.
Summary: I always loved MGS for the stealth and skill required to be stealthy in. I mean how hard is it to be stealthy in a suit that changes to your surroundings. In MGS2 it was just you have yourself and Snake's signature box to sneak around with. In MGS3 you have to apply a different camo for every situation you're in. I was so excited when I got foxhound rank for the first and only time, because I like to kill people and it was hard to resist the urge for one time through.
Summary: I recently picked up a ps3 for the first time after owning just an xbox 360 for the entire last gen (had an xbox one for a couple months but thats a different story) and i have a long list of playstation exclusives i've always wanted to play, with mgs4 near the top of my list. I've played and enjoyed all the other metal gear solid games years ago and was looking forward to this.
Summary: I got this game cheaply years after its release (as I did my PS3), and I'm better off that way. I was very excited for it because I had played all Metal Gear Solid games before, my favorite being MGS3. This game received a lot of praise for its story and graphics when it came out and I cannot help but wonder if people just wanted it to be good so badly that they just ignored the massive flaws of MGS4. The story is set some years into the future, after the events of MGS2.
