This game is without a doubt a best strategy shooter ever made, and the best game so far for PS3. The graphics are amazing... half the time you dont know if your in a cut-scene or actually playing if it wasn't for the HUD.-----Only thing that i would even dare say bad about it is the cut scene lenths are a bit long...they are sweet videos anyway though so most people dont mind. Make sure you know some about MGS series before you get it, or atleast brush up on the basic story line, because it ties up all loose ends from the previous games. All in all this game has so many ways to play it that you'll never get bored!..................oh yeah...MGO is also awesome, but i let you decide. haha!
As the title says, MGS4 is Perfection. Every single tiny aspect of the game is done perfectly. The storyline alone warrants this game a 10, but with Killer gameplay, Killer graphics and 16 player online, MGS4 seems to just give you more and more to do. I wont spoil any details about the storyline because thats one of the main great aspects about MGS series, but I will say that it will definitely blow your mind whether your a hardcore MGS fan or just new to the series. The gameplay on the other hand, I will talk about as it is one of the best aspects of THE PERFECT GAME! First, the introduction of a 3rd person over the sholder view with guns makes MGS4 much more fun and easier during combat. No longer must you remain still when shooting in a first person view or see it from a top down view. The firefights are now more fun than ever and with a solid amount of weapons that have interchangable parts and ways to enhance them and sneaky items at your disposal, MGS4 ensures you never run out of ways to take down your foes. The OctoCamo also adds a sweet component to the game. Being able to copy your surroundings onto a suit either manually or automatically is just beyond awsome, especially when you sneak past enemies crawling on the floor, looking like the floor, or wall or whatever. The boss battles are also the best in the series, they are especially creative in every way. The last boss battle alone was my favorite boss battle in any game, on any console in history. Just the sheer epic feel of it was great. Now the graphics are very good too. Every wall, floor, street, etc. looks incredibly detailed and the lighting and scale of some of the levels and all the different ways to complete an area are astounding. With better controls, an awsome storyline, and online play to back the main story, MGS4 is definitely a game to buy! Its Perfection,.. in a disc.
