    The best game I have ever played and probably ever will.

    As Snake you get to experience the most kick-ass spy, killer, boss, destroyer and one super soldier. The game has so much to explore and so many different ways to approach scenarios. You get to build bases and upgrade th... Read Full Review

    One of the most competent pieces of artful gaming ever.

    I am as far as mission 11, but way before that I was already bored from the repetitive tasks.Taking out an outpost is as easy as coming in range, equipping your tranquilizer gun (which in other Metal Gear games you would... Read Full Review

    Possibly the end for one of the best video game saga.

    Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots scored me, with one of the best finals I've ever seen in a game, Snake Eater one of the best games I've ever seen. Games of the industry, as well as Metal Gear Solid PS1 that revo... Read Full Review
