 What can I say about Metal Gear Solid 4 (Developed by Kojima Productions and produced by Konami)? Well, I could say that it isn’t so much a game as an interactive movie, for one. It’s also glorious and highly masterpieceriffic.

If you don’t know Metal Gear Solid or Solid Snake, you probably wouldn’t have any idea what I’m talking about, much less the game. This is Snake’s last foray into the sneaking world, and it is an incredible ending to the Solid series.

The thing I like about the Solid series is that each iteration adds a lot to the mix (2 had much more fluid controls, 3 had the camo/food mechanic, and this one combines all of them, and also adds weapon customization). The game controls pretty nicely, and there’s a lot to do, so having responsive controls is a boon.

The score, composed by one Harry Gregson Williams and some other legendary Japanese composers, is absolutely iconic. It’s close to perfect. Tense, tender, it almost has a life of it’s own. Now, MGS4 is one of the first games on the Playstation 3, so the game doesn’t look quite as gorgeous as some of our modern counterparts, but it definitely looks good, and the cinematics are… well, extraordinarily cinematic.


As stated previously, there is a LOT of cinematic versus gameplay. So if you think you want that type of experience – and you really should – this game will not disappoint in the slightest. The inclusion of the Metal Gear Online Starter Pack should also give the game some decent replay value. This one’s a 9.66 out of 10 for sure.
