= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars
I could probably write a 700 page review of just how amazing this game Is but I'll try and keep It short If I can.
The game Is more than 4 years old now I think yet still boasts what are In my opinion the best graphics ever seen In a video game to date. Characters look incredible, environments look incredible just EVERYTHING looks incredible.
Some people decide to moan about the length of the cutscenes but I imagine that's just the modern day gamers who play nothing but Call of Duty online and have no real concept of what a state of the art video game actually Is.. yes they are long and yes you probably spend as much time watching them as you do playing the actual game BUT every single one of them are fantastic and the game wouldn't be the wonder It Is without them. It's like a game mixed In with a Hollywood blockbuster (a lot better than most Hollywood blockbusters may I add) there Is so much information and details you need to learn that the cutscenes are absolutely vital to enjoying the game.
The actual gameplay itself gets better with every game In the series, I'm not going to start talking about the plot because you need to discover It for yourselves, but It really Is incredible fun from start to finish. Objectives and environments are always fantastically varied and the game never ever feels repetative! There's a great choice of weapons to choose from and a brilliant new way of acquiring them. The boss fight's In the MGS series have always been better than any you'll find In other games and Guns of the Patriot's bosses are no different, every one unique with there own fantastic back stories, they really are memorable as with almost every character In this series!
Graphics and gameplay aside what's always been Metal Gear Solid's core Is the storyline, this game does a brilliant job of not only progressing the storyline but also tying up loose ends and filling In the blanks from the whole of this epic series. This Is Solid Snake's final outing but It certainly couldn't have been a better one.
I can confidently say this Is my new favourite game of all time and I imagine the only game that could ever take that prestigious title will be the next Metal Gear game. I intend to buy the HD collection soon so I can play through Son's of Liberty and Snake Eater again. Looking forward to trying Peace Walker for the first time aswell. Anyway enough blabbing just buy this game It really Is INCREDIBLE!
