5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeds what you come to expect from a game, 20 Aug 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3) (Video Game)
For anyone looking for reviews of this game the internet will provide a vast array, so I will keep mine brief and to the point.

If you like any previous Metal Gear for the story buy this. If you liked them for the gameplay this will blow you away. It is single most beautifully balanced and effortlessly executed experience I have enjoyed in around 15 years of gaming. This is also the reason I ignore criticisms of the story being overbearing, as a fan of the story i watched enjoyed every minute on a couple of playthroughs and subsequently skipped story sequences and just played the game, there isn't a single section which is less than great and many moments when it touches phenomenal.

I close by strongly recommending you try the online portion of the game too. I pretty much ignored it until recently and I'm not hugely into online gaming yet either, but MGS4 gameplay + a large variety of fun and interesting individual and team-based modes = a surprisingly fun and addictive experience.

Bottom line: this game oozes class. Don't miss out on this diamond.
