The best game ever...
26 October 2008 | by tudyniuzSee all my reviews

Metal Gears Solid 4 : Guns of the Patriots is a special game.This is probably the most anticipated game of the year 2008 and it's also a game that has to bring the PS3 what it never had before,a better game than any other on XBOX 360.This game also is expected to be the final work of Hideo Kojima in the Metal Gear series.It does everything people expected.It is an incredible experience from beginning to end. As many PS3 games it has a pre-installation which doesn't take long but which makes you more anxious about what you are about to face.The game starts like an Academy Award winning movie.The game concentrates on combining the experience of playing video games and watching a movie.The guys from Konami did a great job of combining the two.Every cinematic fits perfect with the game.And you never feel like the cinematic just started without notice or without sense.This game is a masterpiece.After playing it for a while you will realize that you have never played anything like it before.It is just stunning. The vast majority of good games stand out for one or two elements that feel better than in every thing else.But in MGS4 everything is better than in anything else.The graphics are amazing.I don't think that there are many low textures in this game,everything is as sharp as it good be and everything that happens around is just as real.The AI is very good,being able to spot you very quickly if you make any sudden or loud moves.The sound in the game is top notch.Beginning with the incredible precise sound effects,with the perfect music,and the top notch voice-acting,this game is the best ever. The gameplay has also been much improved and the shooting is far more precise than in any other MGS.The number of moves that Snake does in the game is pretty high and every move he makes seems very real. A big bummer for some may be the long cinematics which are longer than the game itself.But this game is the ultimate story telling machine.It tells the story of Solid Snake beautifully.This game is really a tribute to the legend which is Solid Snake. I would recommend this game to everyone.It is truly a must have.This is just one of those games that you simply have to buy.Even if you don't really like the idea of the game,or the fact that cinematics are long,you still have to buy this game.The experience that this game delivers is incredible and you can see that the producers really cared about the product.What came out is this game which deserves a perfect 10.

My Score 10
