5.0 out of 5 stars Pushing boundries in videogaming, 16 Jun 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3) (Video Game)
Snake is back in the latest Kojima installment of the metal gear solid franchise. Kojima, made famous for his abillity to combine movies and games hits a new peak in his talents. MGS4 truly is the way forward for the next generation in videogames. A spectical that has to be seen to be believed. At the moment Iam around halfway through the story and i can easily say this is the best installment in the series. A magnificent achivement visualy and gameplay wise.
Graphically and detail wise the game NEVER lets up. Surely a benchmark for other developers to follow on next gen consoles. Musically it is an absolute triumph this is the best example of how music should be used in a videogame ever.
The one flaw in the game is perhaps that Kojima doesn't give the player enough control over the gameplay. Some cutscenes should have been contolable. Kojima likes to dictate his story but you are often wishing for contol in a certain situation regardless of its outcome.
The characterisation is as always over the top but at times heartwarming and truly outstanding. Subtle touches such as smirks from a character when they think they have the upper hand in a battle is an excelent example of detail.
I can't stress enough...get this game it truly is a masterpiece.
Will this be the last in the series? Its hard to think that Kojima would abandon his cash cow and one of the most famous videogame franchises ever. Mind you if these plot twists keep springing up we will end up back at the start.
So all in all If you have a PS3 you should have this game already....all be it rendering this review pointless.
