    Exciting, Epic, Hideo Kojima does a great job, one of the best games of the last generation

    A solid Metal Gear title but not the best in the series.

    Metal Gear Solid 4 came out in the spring of 2008 during a time when many considered the make or break year for the PlayStation 3 System. Needless to say 2008 was a great year for the system with several critically accla... Read Full Review

    Bad storytelling aside, this is my second favorite Metal Gear game in the saga!

    After beating The Phantom Pain, I decided to go beat other Metal Gear games. MGS4 was one of them. Metal Gear Solid 4 takes place in a war-torn area in the Middle East in 2014. You are Solid Snake and the mission is simp... Read Full Review

    Hideo Kojima Game

    It was my first experience playing MG series. 2012 year, or about that. Actually wasn't so aweson first time. You know, just go from A to B, try not to get caught, watch a cutscene. Customise guns, try to understand what... Read Full Review

    Unbearable

    Unbearable cut-scenes; slow and stiff gameplay. There is so much potential, but wasted on tedious cut-scenes and limited gameplay. Many flaws in the stealth and AI as well.The voice acting and script is embarrassing! The... Read Full Review

    An Essential Purchase

    Metal Gear has a special place in the hearts of many gamers. For over 20 years Kojima has kept it in the same genre and somehow every game still feels fresh, tense and pretty damn memorable. I've played through MGS4 15 t... Read Full Review
