"Great Graphics, Gameplay & Story"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is a great climax to the Metal Gear story arc. The graphics are stunning, and the story is told much better than in MGS2: SOP. It is also much more action oriented than previous games, and the boss battles are really engaging. As regards criticism of the camera – yes, it is slightly strange to get used to at first, but by the end of the first act I had completely for gotten it was an issue. The enemy is very good to – no push overs. As regards negatives, they are a few. Firstly, Drebin. In comparison to earlier games, it is far to easy – mid battle no less – to access Drebin's arms shop and get more weapons, ammo, etc. I think perhaps he should have been accessible in between the acts, or perhaps a set number of times per act, or even only in certain areas of the current mission you are in. Another thing, and I'm not sure this a criticism really, but old school MGS vets may not like the lessening emphasis on stealth – more run and gun than I remember. Overall a great game. I judge a game by one thing – Did I enjoy it? In the case of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, the answer is a definitive yes. A definite must buy for any PS3 owner.

"Best game ever concieved"
5 stars"

I don't normally write reviews for games but because of my immense respect for the Metal Gear Solid series I have decided to express my opinions on this game.

The gameplay is very polished this time around, it allows you to go Rambo if they felt like playing it that way but it still remains as a stealth game at heart. It combines gameplay elements that were made famous by Resident Evil 4, Gears of War and Call Of Duty 4 and links them all into one smooth and thrilling control scheme.

Graphics are absolutely amazing, character animations, music voice acting is so masterful that you will forget you are playing a game.

The story is one for the fans. New comers may criticise this game's length cutscenes but they are definitely made for the fans and if you are among one of them then you are in for the epic finish to Solid Snake's legacy. Loads of old characters coming back, some allies, some foes. This story promises to wrap up the whole story of the Metal Gear Solid series.

I have never played a game that is so epic and emotional. This game tops any hollywood blockbuster around. It is one of the most compelling stories you will ever experience in your life if you have followed Snake's journey from the beginning. This is Hideo Kojima's definitive legacy, this is his end to his masterpieces.

Snake we salute you.

"Polished to Perfection"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Takes everything in the previous game MGS3 Snake-Eater, and crafts it into one of the finest games that I have ever played. It is also more accessible than the previous games in the franchise due to a revised camera system. The character animations have been perfected, the weapon customisation is well setup and the graphics are incredibly beautiful. This is a must buy, as was the last game, because there simply is no greater action adventure in gaming than a Metal Gear Solid game!

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is the final chapter in the saga of Solid Snake which sends him around the world in pursuit of his arch nemesis, Liquid Ocelot. Armed with new gadgets and abilities, Solid Snake must shift the tides of war into his favor, using the chaos of the battlefield to infiltrate deep into enemy territory. In his globetrotting final mission, Snake must sneak deep into enemy locations in the Middle East, South America, and other corners of the Earth to foil Liquid Ocelot's plans for total world domination.

  • MGS4 pushes the power of the PLAYSTATION® 3 to its limits with cutting edge graphics and surround sound. It also aims to be the hallmark title for the new DUALSHOCK®3 controller.
  • Command Snake in his final mission which spans the entire globe as he attempts to foil Liquid Ocelot and his massive army of PMCs.
  • Influence the tides of war through both passive and active means. Snake can directly aid local militia who engage invading PMCs soldiers, or encourage more fighting to slip past undetected amidst the commotion.
  • Unlock custom weapons and modifications as you trade weapons with your black market weapons dealer, Drebin.
  • Providing Snake with his most advanced stealth suit to date, OctoCamo, allows Snake to blend in with his environment as it digitally manifests nearby textures in real time.
  • Otacon is back to support Snake by providing new high tech gadgets, including Metal Gear Mk. II, the ultimate reconnaissance tool, and Solid Eye, which gives Snake real-time information on enemies and his surroundings.
