Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3)
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.

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.

This Game is without the best PS3 game currentky out and possibly the best videogame made, the game play is incredibly varied, the graphics are amazing and the storyline whilst convoluted it beautifully. Yes, the installation times are rather long and yes the cut scenes can be very, very long but instead of detracting from the experince this adds to it as the cutscenes are riveting and although I won't say anymore during the installtion you won't exactly be bored..... The best thing for me about this game is it's abilities to move from tears to joy or through any of the emotions in a matter of moments it is without a doubt an incredibly powerfull experince and I would say that anyone who owns a ps3 MUST get this game.
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.
New items and weapons are included and there are extensive customisation options to be tinkered with such as suppressors, laser, red dot and rifle sights along with weapon attachments like grenade launchers and shotguns for secondary fire. You are kitted out with many high tech sneaking aids such as the solid eye and octocamo (which removes the need for manual camoflage changing as in snake eater)
If you own a ps3 system this is THE must have game. Sneaking has been brought to a whole new level in snake's final mission.
