Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots

Amazon.co.uk Review

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, is a next-gen experience complete with top-of-the-line graphics and surround sound designed for the Sony PlayStation 3. Featuring the most revealing display of Kojima Production's premier title, MSG4 details the world where Snake must under go his final mission. In a world overrun by private military companies (PMCs), wars are no longer fought over nations or ideologies. Instead, the wars of the future are micro-managed by overarching PMCs, right down to the bullet. New gadgets and abilities fuel Snake's journey deep into the enemy domains of the Middle East, South America, and beyond. New gear includes "Metal Gear Mk. II," the ultimate reconnaissance tool, and "Solid Eye," which gives Snake real-time information on enemies and his surroundings.

Joined by a familiar cast of characters, Snake must once again return to the battlefield to confront his lifelong rival, Liquid Ocelot, who is manipulating the world's wars from the one world where soldiers will always have a place. But Liquid Ocelot is not the only one who will be able to manipulate the world's wars--Snake can destabilize opposing forces by working behind the scenes, supporting the local militia as they fight PMCs, creating a smokescreen that allows Snake to move freely within the war-zone.

MGS4 is a next-generation adventure set in the aftermath of MGS2: Sons of Liberty. The concept behind the latest Metal Gear Solid project is "no place to hide," and this edition in the series will force Snake into unexpected circumstances with an all-new storyline that breaks away in some ways from the previous MGS franchise entries. We don't want to spoil it for you, but, producer Hideo Kojima did reveal some very juicy bits about the game and the storyline when it was first announced at E3 of 2006. "Until now," said Kojima, "we've released two entries of the MSX2 Metal Gear series, and three entries in the Metal Gear Solid series. Add to this Portable Ops, and you get a total of six titles. All mysteries will be cleared up in Metal Gear Solid 4."

Kojima was very clear about the finality of MSG4, leaving gamers to wonder, "Will Snake die?!" When asked if the story will come to this sort of an end, Kojima responded without the slightest bit of vagueness, "It will come to an end." The MGS4 E3 trailer showed a number of characters from the Metal Gear and Metal Gear Solid histories. This final instalment is sure to deliver loads of cameos, in fact, it is rumoured that nearly all the characters from the series will make an appearance.

In addition to a return of classic Metal Gear Solid characters, the gameplay systems from part three are also expected to make a comeback. The camouflage system from part three will make it into MGS4, with the addition of "OctoCamo," Snake's most advanced stealth suit to date. The name appears to be formed from the words "Octopus" and "camouflage," and players will be awestruck by the chameleon-like camo that changes with the surroundings. OctoCamo allows Snake to blend in with his environment as it digitally manifests nearby textures in real time. Think if it this way, if Snake is standing next to a wall worn out with holes, he too will appear to be riddled with holes. It has also been revealed that MGS4 will have online play, but no specifics have been released. Although very little information is known about the game's visuals, rumour has it that MGS4 is expected to be the finest representation of console graphics on the PS3, and it is expected that they will just get better and better as the game nears its release date.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guns of the Patriots 15 Jun. 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is simply the best game I have played this generation of consoles (if not ever).

Every scenario has been meticulously thought through and has environments that encourage gameplay styles from each of the previous games as well as those encouraging new tactic and skill development such as pursuit, tracking and ambush detection. You will find yourself totally immersed in the sneaking parts of this game. I often find my grip tightening on the controller as I tiptoe past guards or dashing between cover to avoid a patrol. This element of the gameplay has not been changed though shooting the enemy has been made much easier for those without the patience to sneak.

Fans of the series will be dissapointed in no way with the wrapping up of all loose ends and appearances from almost every character in the 10 years of metal gear solid. Beware though; this means a lot of cutscenes.

If you have not played a game in the series before I strongly urge you to play through the previous MGS games. They are all very good games (even the old ps1 original) and you will be at a loss to what is going on unless you involve yourself in the story. Frequent flashbacks will also be meaningless without background knowlege.

Presentation is immaculate. You'll be hard pushed to find a single flawed texture. Even in cutscenes you are invited to zoom in (with the d-pad) and search for the slightest problem. Every setting looks exactly how you would expect from the streets of Eastern Europe to the Middle Eastern Warzones, the jungles of South America and more that may spoil your experience if I were to mention them.

5.0 out of 5 stars MGS4 Beautiful, exhilarating, but complex 11 Aug. 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Well, I will keep this short.

Is it worth buying this game = YES.

Is it over-hyped nonsense = NO.

Has typical enemy AI improved in relation to previous titles = YES.

Are the controls easy to use = YES.

Are the cutscenes too long = YES they are in places.

Is the plot decipherable = YES in simple form.

Does the layering of the plot leave you baffled at times = YES.

Should the layering worry you = NO just play the game through.

Are answers provided to key plot related questions = YES via cutscenes and the excellent free downloadble Metal Gear Solid database from PS3 Store. (Spoiler free as some related MGS4 content only unlocks after game is completed).

Does it have online mode of play and is it good = yes it does and it is both beautiful and good. Could do with a sprint function though.

Will the film be any good? Not if they make it as complex as the plot layers. You cannot cover the MGS history in 2 hours!

Would I recommend buying a PS3 to play it - possibly. Will I play it again - yes absolutley. The action is stunning, the sneaking tense and you can choose to do either in a very effective combination. The game is beautifully rendered. The game is not 'fun' as such hence 4 stars for that. But Overall 5 stars because it delivers and then some.

Comparing this with COD:4 is a bit out of whack - both are aimed at giving a different experience in gaming and both are outstanding in what they do. Benchmark games both.

Mr Kojima and his vast team have pulled it out the bag once again. Inventive and outstanding. Now I just have to wait until the next COD title.

Metal Gear is strange. You either love it, hate it, or dont mind having a bash at it every now and then. This review is for all people. I'll go through why you should love it, why you should hate it and why you should, most definatly, have a bash at MGS4.

Its the final MGS. Things have moved on considerably. The story arc is as thick and complicated as ever and a tense and war engrossed start to the game sets you in the mood for things to come. Graphically this game IS the best example on the PS3 to date. Every texture and detail flourishes in glorious HD, the framerate remaining constant throughout the game, only dipping from time to time in massive battles. I wont mention the story, at all. Frankly, if this is your part of the review, the person who loves metal gear, then you're itching for the next part of the story. Whatever you've read or seen about MGS4 so far is all turned on its head! This is, so far, the best MGS. It encorporates all the classic parts of MGS. The hidden items, funny quirks throughout the game, the classic characters. All of these are present but in its strongest form yet. For any MGS fan, this is the ultimate game ever.

MGS4 can be hated, however, for some sections in the game which seem repeated. There are some similarties that can be drawn to MGS3 throughout the game, especially in its set peices. The cutscenes, to an MGS fan, are absolute heaven. To a new comer, they are long and boring. Hideo Kojima mentioned that MGS4 will explain all other MGS's and have a back story. This is incorrect. MGS4 will prompt the 'x' button at certain parts in the story/cutscene and this will show a flash back. For example when you first meet Naiomi, the X button brings up 2 images of her from MGS. How is 2 pictures going to explain one of the key story parts for MGS4?
