So I got to the end of MGS4 a little while a go and just wana give people some my thoughts. Yes I made a blog about it last time but I'm going to talk well more at what I dislike and why in the review I will make I won't give it 10/10. Anyway so lets talk about the people first.
So we have to start with old Snake here and my views still stand that hes one of the best people in Video games and will be missed when (if) he does bite the bullet which I think will happen. But yeh Snake actully suits the grumpy old man sort of thing well. He's funny in that kind of way and I don't know what it is but I don't think you can dislike him. So he gets a thumbs up from me.
I like Raiden a lot more in this game then in MGS2 for the simple reason is he so much more badass and is just a lot cooler. So much in fact I wish there would of been moments where u play as him. He just seems more darker and is full of hate which he actully needed. But there is a problem I have with him, the fact he was able to cheat death so many times. Ok in the first vamp fight letting in live was a good idea. But when he stops the ship.... I mean come on i hated the fact he stop a ship that size in the first place but then he lives. This would have been the perfect time to kill him off and they should of done. Instead he stops this giant ship and in the next screen Otaco say he be fine .... then he even somehow able to get on the ship which has like about 10000 troops infront of him and still able to save snake which I just thought he did to many times and it also got on my neves. I think the thing is they really wanted us to like Raiden which I think a lot of us did but then they took it to far and made him the unkillable hero. Eitherway still like him so thumbs up.
I really like Liquid as well, I think its helped hes the main villain and that hes funny at times at well. You know when you see him somthing big is going. Just a lot of the big moments that stand out have him in like when he makes the gun motions with his fingers and the troops holding p90s fire. Just so many great moments as such a great characte. There was just not one moment that bored me. Great Villian and great character so thumbs u.
The Beauty and the Beast Corps
Even thought they were just bosses from the other games in different skins they were pretty complexed character and I really like them and felt sorry for them to. Each have awful backstorys that no one would want to have happpen to them. For one there all look really cool and even thought a couple are a little easy to kill you wish "man i want one". The only thing I did'nt really like was the human fights. I did'nt really see any real reason for them to be there as they just did'nt seem needed. Still all of them get a Thumbs up as well.
I have very mixed feeling for Otacon. I like him somtimes but I also just found him anoying as hell more. The thing that really made me go "oh dude you suck so much" was when Naomi died. His voice acting in the part was just so crap and you just thought really thats the best u can do and then 20 seconds later hes fine again. Thought there was a part near the end where u felt he put my effort in with another screen where hes thinking about here. So I don't really like him but don't really hate him.
I know she did'nt have a super large roll in the game (well she kind of did) but I just really like Sunny and I can't wait to see if she will in another Metal Gear game (if there will be one) as an older characterso thumbs up.
Vamp pretty evil looking and is well pretty evil even so I would of never felt i would of felt sorry for him when he died but I did. I just thought put him to rest now and let it be done with. So felt sorry for so thumbs kind of up.
By far the person I dislike the most in the game. For one i'm still not sure who's side she was on. It seems she was help both sides and trying to have her cake and eat it in away. Everytihng about her I just did'nt like. Even her death screen I did'nt even feel sorry for her for a couple of reason. one was that Otacon crying just made the whole screen a joke and the fact why you killing yourself I mean doing it front of everyone and just takeing the easy way out. So thumbs down.
He start as the Human joke and then became a hero's and even one of the main character. I kind of also had mixed feeling about the way he changes from the start of the game till the end but I guess I kind of like him so thumbs up.
There was a few other people but I just don't think I connected with them enought to write about them. But Lets talk and the cop out of an ending which is one of the reasons it won't get a 10 for me. The ending in this one was to much a happy kind of yay ending. the whole thing like the wedding just anoyed me because everything Meryl said she wanted did'nt happen and they done it so fast. Also I gone on about this before but I wish Snake would of died instead of the way the done it. Someone said the whole Raiden meeting his son and the wedding would of been made much better if it would of all been happening because of Snakes sacrifice but no it had to be all this happy ending where snakes going to live his finally months and die somwhere.... hated the ending and it just felt like Konami just got lazy towards the end of the game and it just did'nt feel as fun as the start (apart from the rex bit).
after thinking a while about a score useing gamspots .5 system I would give it a 9.5 because of a few problems and the crappy ending, under a different reivew system maybe a 9.6 or a 9.4 but yeh its great but I would'nt listen to the people saying you need a PS3 just for this game as you maybe thinking " well that was fun for like 2 weeks. Still I think its great and you should buy it if you own a ps3.
