Looks pretty good, has some moments of glory

Doesn't let you play nearly as much as it should

Hideo Kojima's signature series return with the last mission of one of history's greatest action heroes, Solid Snake. The franchise that famously introduced video-games to an exciting new gameplay direction, with the inaugural title, and cinematic storytelling, with the original Metal Gear Solid...

Whilst debate rumbles on as to the merits and deficiencies of MGS4’s storytelling, it is a game that should ultimately be remembered for its outstanding gameplay and peerless technical aptitude. For a project relentlessly hyped as a blockbuster experience, there’s barely a moment where it doesn’t...

It’s been thirteen years since the first Metal Gear Solid game came out on the first PlayStation, and the developers haven’t been lazy since. Three other main games have been released, plus two PSP titles, a spin-off series and a remake. You can also expect to see a new game in the series called...

Review of Metal Gear Solid 4 Being a huge fan of the Metal Gear series, I try to write without bias. First of all I'll admit that I was slightly worried when the premise of playing as Old Snake was announced. I was also disappointed by the idea that the environment would be an open warzone, first...

(No spoilers) Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is the long awaited sequel to the Metal Gear Solid franchise. It wraps up the story of who the patriots are and how Solid Snake will live his life. Ive been a fan of the MGS franchise since MGS1 for the PS1 and I believe that this sequal is a...

Story The storyline to this game is extremely complex; it follows on from the previous metal gear solid games and is a direct sequel to MGS2. I'll state now, you don't need to have played the previous games to be able to play and understand this one, I'd only ever played MGS2 before this and that...

Online play, installations.

Metal gear Solid 4 is the final chapter in the story line of solid snake. The story line of the game carries straight on from that of Metal Gear Solid 2. Since the end of Metal gear solid (will now on be referred to as MGS) 2, the world has changed. ID tagged soldiers carry ID tagged weapons;...

"War has changed." Those grim words, delivered by a world-weary Solid Snake as he prepares to embark on his final mission, mark the beginning of one of the biggest and most important games that the PS3 is likely to see for a very long time. Yes, Metal Gear Solid 4 is here at last. After months of...

Firstly, im going to make clear to those of you who dont know - 'Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots' (MGS4) actually comes with an additional game 'Metal Gear Online' (MGO) included. There are so many reviews of the main MGS4 game here already that im going to talk more about the lesser...

“The Best PS3 Game To Date”

Visuals, Audio, Gameplay, Cutscenes, Multiplayer

Hideo Kojima has one again out done himself with another game in the metal gear saga. Metal Gear Solid 4 has to be one of the most entertaining, breathtaking, gorgeous games ever created. And is also clearly the best looking game so far this generation. Story; The game takes place in 2014 which...

Literally absolutely nothing.

With so much overuse of terms like 'stunning', 'superb', 'awesome' etc my mind, like most, has become dull to describing something as utterly and literally magnificent as this game is. Easily my favourite series of all time, Solid Snake's last outing was much lauded. It delivers times a thousand...

From the first moment I played this game I was hooked, everything about it is brilliant, there is only one negative point that I can find. The gameplay, graphics, storyline, voice-acting and playability are all better than on any other game I've played. The only bad thing about the game is the...

Not being a big fan on the Metal Gear Solid series when I was younger, the only reason I played this game was because it came free with my Playstation 3; what a stroke of luck that was. It was the best looking game I had seen at the time, and the plot was like nothing I had seen before....it was...

Best game of 2008

When I think of the best games of all time metal gear solid comes to mind. It is in a class among the likes of zelda and final fantasy. The problem with these games is you always have your personal favourite. Mine has been Zelda- Ocarina of time for around 10 years now. I take this game as a...

Long cut scenes, skippable though.

While Metal Gear Solid 4 (or MGS4) came out a few months back, only now I've received this wonderful opportunity to play it. Yes it is indeed worthy of the many awards it has won in 2008 and I believe it to be one of the best the current generation has to offer. As the title suggest MGS4 is a...
