Reason #1 to own a PS3

I was not a follower of the Metal Gear saga before buying this game, that being said, this became one of my top three games of all time. There were so many jaw dropping moments, I came away floored.
Must own, must play. Will not disappoint even if not a fan of the Metal Gear series.

Best game on PS3 period

This is the reason to buy a PS3. This game has so much content, that it has to install for each of the five acts(plus two bonus cutscene acts) and there are loads of different guns in the game. you can also put Old Snake in different outfits, such as Altair, when you get medals; some of which can be earned even if you completely suck at this game. Not to mention if you stuck all the cutscenes in the game together, you'd have a full length movie. there were no problems with the AI that i experienced. the new octocamo is geat; no more going into the menus to change camoflauge. yaaaayy! not to mention you can pause the game any time you want and buy ammo, and you automatically sell extra guns for points.

First off let me get this out of my system, . Holy F. cow, this game is awsome!!!! I bought this game with extremely high expectations, and this game exceeded my highest hopes. This game has without a doubt the most detailed grahics I have ever scene on a console. The game play is true to the Metal Gear Solid legacy, but with a few much welcomed additions. The Solid Eye being one of those additions.

It is your full range multipersonal vision tool, what make it unique to all other video games period is that its performance is dependent on Snakes metal state. I #4 Old Snake has a metal conditioning meter. If he is calm and relaxed his accuracy and spacial awarness are sharpened, objects in the Solid Eye become more focused and easier to spot. If he's fatigued or stressed objects at distance are nearly invisible, enemies taking cover are lost/ no longer show on map. Its a completly unique system that greatly changes the battlefield for the better.

Speaking of Battlefields, the level designs are better than any other game I've seen, incredible detail and shear vastness of levels are mind boggling. I dont' want to reveal any major secrets but lets just say you get to return to were MGS all started, every detail is inditical to the PS1 title but with truely Nex-Gen graphics.

Lets just say that all games every created will have a much higher standard to acheive, if they wish to be mentioned in the same breath as MGS 4. The video game world has been slit into two timelines from now on. As of June 12, 2008 the game world will be refered to as BMGS4 & AMGS4, (Before Metal Gear Solid 4 and After Metal Gear Solid). BC & AD have become absolute.

Easily the best Game ever made for the PS3.
