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 bought this headset because i'm a big metal gear solid fan. when i opened it, it worked fine but since my internet wasn't ready to use, i put it back in the box. A couple months later i tried to use but it wouldn't turn on, it will charge but it won't turn on. i'm disapointed that it didn't work, it would've been cool to use.
What is wrong with the people who designed the cut-scenes

Summary: This game is very similar to the previous ones. They've added a few new gadgets, and you can upgrade your guns which is fun. But christ. The cutscenes are beyond heavy. Whatever you have read in previous reviews, it is an understatement. There was one cutscene early in the game in which a character spent 15 minutes explaining to me why I can't fire some weapons.
Summary: My first bluetooth headset. I asked for the Official Sony version, but the store was out and my sister got this instead. It isn't as terrible as most people make it out to be, but being that there are better headsets for cheaper, it just doesn't make much sense to buy it at all. It is kinda uncomfortable having it on your ear after a couple minutes. Not unbearable, but irritating, which is magnified when you know that there are cheaper more comfortable ones avaliable.
Summary: Pros -It looks nice. Cons -Very uncomfortable. I couldn't stand to wear it for more than a few minutes. -Poor audio quality. Turning up the volume on the headset itself, in games, and on my cell phone didn't help. From what I could tell, people also had a hard time hearing me. -Despite being sixty dollars it still feels cheap. -You can get much better headsets for much less. I would only recommend this to the fans of the games looking for a collectible item.
Summary: I am a huge fan of MGS but this one cried out "MOVIE" there was very little play time. I thought of it as an interactive movie more than anything. It was more about knowing the story behind the story. For me it was hard to tell the difference between my allies and my enemies most of the time. If I tried to use the robot to scope out things in the battle field my allies would kick it. I hated the fact that mission briefings took so long.
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.
Summary: As this is more of a rant then a review i will not evaluate the game much apart from saying "Utterly brilliant" as i do not own this release i was intrigued it was being released as "25th Anniversary Edition" now if anybody's a long term fan of the series you know how much of a surprise it was hearing the announcements at the 2012 Penny Arcade Expo on the 25th Anniversary of Metal Gear Solid, revealing a Metal Gear Solid movie, Metal Gear Solid Social Ops and Metal Gear...
