Metal Gear Solid 4: PERFECTION!

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.
GAMEPLAY:10/10

STORY:10/10
ONLINE:10/10
OVERALL:10/10 PERFECT!

This Game Was Awesome

i think this game is by far the best game for ps3 so far. ive had a ps3 for a while and it was the nicest looking footrest i had. it did nothing with flops like lair and resistance fall of man. but this game was an epidemic. the gameplay was remarkable along with the epic story. it brought back characters from some of the older game as well as a little easter egg for those who played metal gear solid 1. it has made the list for one of the greatest games ive ever played and i adore and highly reccomend it. if you havent played the first 3, you might want to rent them or buy them or look up the storys of them on wikipedia. but as for gameplay, youll find little better than this masterpiece for the sony gamesystem which was a $600 waste before this.

MGS 4

WOW, this game is amazing. The best graphics on any console hands down. The sound is amazing especially with surround sound on. I have an HDTV and this game displays some of what the PS3 can do when it is in 1080p. The campaign is extremely in depth and it does not even seem like a game, it is more like an interactive movie that you are the hero in. You almost always have a choice between fighting it out with everyone or sneaking by them undetected. The campaign is rather long, but very fun the entire way through. What's cool about this game is that it is set in the not too distant future and is meant to be a modern game, but it has little old school touches like bosses, cut scenes from old MGS games, and it also disses the xbox 360 which I though was hilarious. (youtube mgs4 disc 2) The online is pretty fun, it just takes a little while to get online for the first time because you have to make a Konami and a Game ID. This game deserves no less than a 10 and should be game of the year. Highly recommended. If you can, buy it.
