"Excellent ending to the storyline with great gameplay capabilities."
I will rank review on these levels
Camera ( Point of view)
From Metal Gear, to Metal gear Solid 4, Guns of the patriots, the way that the games all string together in the storyline are simply amazing, no other game has been like this in the video game industry.
There is only one word to describe it all, realistic. The cinematic scenes make it feel like a movie, and an amazing feature in the game, is being able to play, while a cinematic goes on to the right your screen.
Camera (Point of view) 7/10
The problem wasn't the camera in the game, but the camera online. The zoomed out 3rd person view with online mode just doesn't seem to work, an over the shoulder camera would've worked much better online.
The gameplay is so great it feels like a arcade fighting game. There are so many options to dispose of an enemy, so many ways to customize many different guns. And the revamped camouflage and radar system was easy to use and understand.
Simply the fact that the Metal Gear series has online capabilities deserves a 10/10, the game modes in online are clever, and the character customization is unique, the use of CQC was spectacular in the use of killing an opponent, as well as hiding in the cardboard box, or new Drum Can, waiting for your enemy to pass by. If I could give Online a 11/10 I would, cause it deserves it.
All in all, MGS4, Guns of the Patriots scores a 10/10, The camera in online was the only fault, and it was only a slight one, everything else makes up for it. To wrap it up in general, MGS4 has probably the most amazing and edge-of-your-seat storyline in video game history. Its graphics are lifelike and will have you comparing it to yourself. The 3rd person camera has always worked for the Metal gear series, where it usually doesn't work for others, the online 3rd person had a fault though, being able to look around corners, possibly to see people hiding. The gameplay was the best of all the series so far. The choices you could make and customization was incredible. The online capability, taking in many elements from the main game was ingenious, the character customization was something no one would've thought about. Metal Gear Solid 4, Guns of the Patriots. In my eyes, the best game of all time.
