Best game so far

OMG i love this game. Solid snake returns for his "final?" (yes) mission. If you've been following the metal gear series from start to finish, you will not be disappointed with this game. The closure of the Solid Snake saga is one of the best endings in gaming.

First off, this is a stealth tactical espionage game. Meaning that staying stealth plays a "big" part of the game. Sure u can "Run n' Gun," but if you try that in the higher difficulty levels, you will just see yourself being mowed down by either Soldiers or the Militia. Snakes best weapon is his stealth suit which takes the texture and colorization of his surrounding and creates a similar image on him. The controls are really comfortable and i think its the best setup for this type of game.

I really dont need to state any down-sides to the gameplay, seeing how, to me, they are really minor. I have yet to touch the multi-player.

I would really like to write more on sound, but i am one of the unfortunates who only play on a Stereo system. But from just that, the sounds in the game are rich. Voice acting is pretty good (but i dont really like english dubs). Guns sound like guns. Ambiance is there.

This is where MGS4 really shines. Kojima and company did a great job bringing the "Snake" universe into a whole different generation. These graphics are all what next gen. means. Cut-scenes transition into gameplay nicely. The model details are really well done.

All in all, this is a game that all ps3 owners (who know about the MGS series). You will not be disappointed by this purchase.

    Metal Gear Solid is one of those single player experiences that anyone who calls themselves a gamer would be crazy to miss. Hideo Kojima has ended the tale of Solid Snake with an experience that can not be called anything other than epic. Given the story can at times seem a bit over the top it is so well presented it and a few movement / control shortcomings can easily be forgiven. This is single player experience any fan of the series ( or anyone new abet some brushing up on MGS history would b...
