Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots review

Reviewed June 23, 2008

John L says: "Not to make excuses, but I somehow doubt that any of the issues I've mentioned—the sometimes less than brilliant story, the shift away from gameplay toward the end, the lack of challange—will be a surprise or an issue to any long-time fan.

Probester says: "After years of waiting, it's finally here. The sequel to Metal Gear Solid 3. The final chapter in the Solid Snake story. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, has finally arrived. How does the final chapter in the story stack up to the rest of the series, and by itself? "

Does that mean Metal Gear Solid 4 is overrated? You bet. "

welsh_tom says: "So, the long-awaited final game in Hideo Kojima's incredible Metal Gear Solid series, and the final venture of the legendary Solid Snake, is at last upon us. Its release is one of those things that doesn't come along too often, like the last Harry Potter book, or the concluding episode of Star Wars.

There was naturally an e..."

zippdementia says: "When I was first writing this review and looking for the proper score to this game, Gamefaqs was really helpful. Right there, under 5, it said "playable, nothing special about it." And that's exactly the feeling I was left with after playing MGS4. Now, first of all, you should know where I'm coming from as a reviewer and gamer. I love the MGS series. Or rather, I love the oddly numbered games in the series. I personally think that MGS1 and MGS3 stand among the few perfect games out there. An exc..."
