Summary

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is a story-driven adventure game, with seasoned hero Solid Snake drafted for one final mission. Set across stages including the Middle East and South America, the now aged Snake has been asked to assassinate his old adversary, Liquid Ocelot. To do this, however, he must make his way through a series of battlefields, using his legendary stealth abilities and all-new OctoCamo suit to avoid detection and to reach his target. With series favorites such as Meryl Silverburgh, Raiden, Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich, Eva and Roy Campbell returning, and with all new gameplay features including a remote-controlled Metal Gear Mk. II and enhanced CQC (Close Quarters Combat) system, Metal Gear Solid 4 rounds out the Metal Gear saga with a fittingly cinematic and gripping final outing.

I dont know if this is a well known thing to every gamer but Kojima (The director) makes games look more like movies. This game is honestly the best game in the whole series, I played the series in chronological order and this was the perfect way to wrap it up. Kojima is a genius hopefully he can come back for one more game in the near future but this game does not need a direct sequel (If you dont count MG rising revengeance) BUT THIS IS A 100% recommended title for anyone but please play the other games first before you try this one.

WARNING
This review contains spoilers.

Amazing Cutscenes: Epic Boss Fights: Great GamePlay: MGS4 is Loaded with a lot of Memorial Moments including, Returning to Shadow Moses with all the FlashBacks That Gave Me all the Goosebumps. My Favorite Boss Fights in the series happen in act 4 and 5 and they are: Metal Gear Rex vs Metal Gear Ray and Solid Snake Vs Liquid Ocelot. The Best Hand to Hand Combat Fight in the series have 4 different parts to the Final Fight with Music playing from each mgs game including MGS1 2 3 and 4 in that order with MGS1 having the old school overhead camera fight with Encounter Music Playing; MGS2 have ocelot strong punch fight with MGS2 Alert Music Playing; MGS3 have the CQC Fight and Snake Eater Song Playing with the flash back to Naked Snake aka Big Boss vs Young Ocelot. Raiden Makes a Comeback as a Ninja and is a BadAss Now and Fights Vamp The Frogs and Gekkos But, Sadly you don’t get to play as this new and improved Raiden because, he’s an upc. The Main Story is That Solid Snake is Tracking Down to Stop Liquid Ocelot For Good while Suffering From Rapidly Aging Because of Naomi the Bitch. You also Fight the Beauty and Beasts Group that Mimic MGS1 Bosses like Screaming Mantis, Crying Wolf, Raging Raven, and Laughing Octopus. This Game is a True MasterPiece with Great Voice Acting once again and MGS4 is the reason I brought a PS3.

Metal Gear Solid 4 is a unique, multi-layered experience that, when all is said and done, is a worthy conclusion to an important series. In addition to coming through as a sequel, the game stands as a ringing endorsement for the technical capabilities of the PlayStation 3. Some elements of the game aren’t as progressive as its technology, but taken as whole it’s still one of the most remarkable games of this generation. As for Old Snake, regardless of your feelings about the series, this soldier has given his all and truly deserves his final salute.

Metal Gear Solid 4 had a lot to live up to and it's done so brilliantly. It's a game that will go down in history as one of the most ambitious and cinematic ever made, but also, finally, and more importantly, it will go down as a MGS game with gameplay that doesn't polarise opinion. It's not without it problems, most notably in the change of pace in the last third and the often laborious cut scenes (if you could play even half of the best cinematic moments MGS4 would wipe the floor with the best games we've ever seen), but MGS fans won't care.

It’s the surprising entertainment value of the action, the mind-blowing visuals, and the completeness of the story’s conclusion that make this last installment so satisfying. Metal Gear Solid 4’s positive qualities make it one of the most significant game releases of this generation, and anyone with an appreciation for the evolving form of the medium would do well to play it from start to finish.
