I got MGS4 in the summer last year and the graphics looked amazing to me. There were a few rough edges but they only really stood out because everything else looked so good. Gameplay took some getting used to but was really fun once you got into it.
This hasn't aged well.
I thought the graphics decent then, and the fact it was a 1080 game better(I better be really right about that) it was the controls for shooting..but I got used to them. Not so much for that one episode of sneaking around...
I think maybe this summer will be a good time to revisit that game.
Agreed that the game hasn't aged well. Peace Walker is a better game than MGS4, I was severly dissapointed with this game even in 08. Lackluster retcons, terrible new characters, a disjointed and ultimately underwhelming main plot split into pointless acts. I loved that last fight with Ocelot though.
compare to the scontrols of SC:Conviction where old man Fischer can jump over a table.
but the cutscenes and the occasional shameless butt/boob shots of every lady in the game still holds up. STILL HOLDS UP.
this game is strictly for MGS fans. If you no like MGS, you have no business playing this game.
wtf are you talking about? I have seen Japanese players doing things in MGS4 that I thought were impossible, the controls give so many options and are extremely responsive.
"The controls are severely dated". The controls were severely dated in 2008.. It's a Japanese game...
And the point with bad graphics isn't true either as long as you don't compare them to PC games (which would be ridiculous).
