Summary: MGS has always had a high ratio of cut scenes to game play, but this one takes the cake. Also the game was very linear, having many points where you cross over and can't backtrack. Where as the old games left many regions open to return to.

Summary: all of the metal gear games are fun to play with being able to use the differnt gagets and you get to kill people. what more can you ask for in a video game. I havent finished it yet but so far it's as good aas the rest of the metal gear games.
Summary: Metal Gear Solid 4 is a rpg/shooter game. This is the first Metal Gear Solid game that I had ever played. This game got me hooked to the series. I plan on buying the previous Metal Gear Solid games because of this game. The battles were interesting and fun and left me wanting more.
Summary: Truly an epic game in it's presentation and execution. Obviously, it can be seen as a little fishy for a game to have only (at most) 10 hours gameplay through the story and probably twice that length of time in cut-scenes, but that's what this game is all about.
Pros: I bought this a bit over a year ago when I ordered my ps3. I did not get the ps3 for gaming. However I had hear so much about mgs4 I thought I should get it. I did not expect much. This game is excellent. It appeals to a wide range of gamers. If you like story, fps, 3rd person, stealth, or just p...
Cons: Looooooooong video segments for storyline. Very interesting and well made. However I found my self wanting to play and skip.
