"Courage is Solid!! (Spoiler-Free)"
MGS4 or Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is a game published by Konami and made by the famed video game developer Hideo Kojima. MGS4 follows the story of Solid Snake and his battle against Liquid Ocelot and the Patriots.
Graphics: The graphics are amazing even beating Uncharted's in characters and weapons. The facial animations are amazing and when watching cut-scenes you forget your playing a game it looks so good. The body movements are great and it feels like the characters are real. They are also produced in real time so these ARE the graphics of the game.
Game-play: A great step-up from the previous games in the series. The controls are totally revamped and the aiming modes are incredibly improved. The enemies AI is also toned up as well. This game is one that is original in game-play because it's not just a stealth game but can be a action game. The game lets players tackle the problems anyway they really want whether it be through disguise, distraction, or plain guns blazing. Theres a lot of guns in this game and when I say a lot I mean A LOT! You can also customize the guns with RDS's, Grenade Launchers, Silencers, Grips, and scopes. The boss fights are also a major part of this game which are both groundbreaking and original. The designs of the levels are also perfect and the cut-scenes give a break from the great game-play just when you need it. The seductive story will get you sucked in EXPECIALLY if you have played the previous games.
Sound: Amazing. Perfect. Those are the words to describe the beautiful sound that comes out of your speakers. If you own a 5.1 headset you are in for a treat. The sounds are realistic and work great with surround sound. The cell phone's seem real and the Voice acting is PERFECT!
Replay-ability: There is a lot of replaying going on in this game. You can go for different emblems or ranks when going on different play-throughs as well as unlocking different weapons such as Solar Gun and items like face-camos the famed bandana, and stealth camo. There is also MGO or Metal Gear Online which is a multiplayer online portion to this game which is both addiction and fun.
All in all this is a great game and an experience you will have trouble getting this generaion. This is the reason to own the PS3. Definiantly a perfect and flawless 10/10.
