Metal Gear Solid 4! Could it be the best game in history?

I think it probably will be. Looking at the videos and gameplay. Pre-ordered from ASDA and it's coming on the 12th. On IGN it has a rating of 9.9 and on gamespot (who are usually very crytical) 9.3. That beats Super Mario Galaxy which was amazing! All I can say is gutted on Xbox...

I have no opinion until the game itself is released and i have played from it start to finish.. there have been several mixed reviews for the game, some rated very highly while others rated around 8/10 which is still not too bad. Most reviewers also mentioned the fact there is 2 cutscenes in the game that are around the 90 mark each.

No metal gear solid sucks --- pretty graphics to cover up a pretty boring game

Prefer splinter cell myself

PS3 SUCKS XBOX RULES

its 720p and not full 1080p... why?

never played the others, not likely to play this one.

Depends what games you like playing for it to be the best game in history, or a may turn out to be yet another over hyped game

You know GTA4 was getting 10/10 almost everywhere. You can take that 9.9 and shove it (along with Mgs) where the sun dont shine.

I'd have given GTA 7 topps, and that's being generous.

what?
I think people forget just how much gta has achieved both technically and in terms of content. I think people judge games waaaaay too much on how much they are dissappointed due to the hype a game has received rather than sitting down and basing an opinion of the game in an objective way.
It's like Assassin's creed, blatently not amazing but definetly not terrible. Yet due to it's massive hype people were scoring it 3's and 4's, that clearly shows either somebody doesn't know what they're talking about or, more likely that their judgement has been clouded through dissappointment.

:w00t: I thank you sir

MGS4 will be good but will it be the best game in history? probably not, Red Alert is still the winner for that category ;-)

The 3D GTAs have always had rubbish coding, incredibly demanding for what it delivers. I'd probably give GTA4 a hearty 8.5

I just think GTA was too hyped up and reviews were dished out way to generously because it was 'the game of the year'.
I played it, and completed it. But I wouldn't play it again, that's for sure.

Yeh 9/10 imo but thats really pushing it - without the shiny graphics would be a 6

Just the same old monotonous gameplay

Plus there is no replayability factor except the rubbish online
Will never play it through again

halo 3 was more like 2.5 ---- im hoping they dont make a mess of the prequel game

Yeh I agree with you.

Except for playing it again. Ive been playing multiplayer with my mates alot in the past week.

Victim of its own hype, just like halo 3 and probably mgs.

BioShock was great because it wasnt over hyped.

MGS2 is one of my all time faves, and from what I have read this is better :w00t:

It is hard to say if it will be "MY" best game ever, but I know it will be there abouts.

Dont believe everything you read, the 2x 90min cut scenes is confirmed BS, so is the eurogamer and EDGE reviews (both gave 8/10), I have no problem with the scores but the actual writing of the review was just horrible nitpicking - hardly anything was written about the actual GAME!

Also, the jealousy is soo clearly evedent in this thread :roll:

True. The Xbox guys get so agressive because they know the PS3 is 10 times as good as the Ex-box while the PS3 guys stay calm because we know what's best.

Ok i think the ps3 could become a good console if it didnt have such a terrible controller atm

The six axis is too light the dualshock 3 is heavier which si better and has rumble - but the ps3 is a poor console i meant come on you have to install the game onto the hard drive i mean thats pathetic

Where did GTA 4 get 10/10? I'd like to see that... And also i like GTA but I think number 4 wasn't as good as San Andreas

Says a lot about the loyal PS3 fans.

I've only seen one game that does that which is Warhawk. And you don't install the whole game. :roll:Look how cheap the Xbox is. Such a rip off that you have to pay to play online. Wait a sec. I can't play online cuz i got 3 red lights. Don't get me started Just like to add, Xbox couldn't have MGS4 because they did not have enough disc space.

Well if you exclude the legitimate comment, my post still stands.:p

Here we go...
Xbox live wees all over PSN. (my opinion)
PS3 is very quiet, bluray player
Xbox games are usually £10 cheaper
PS3 exclusive I would give my arm for (ff, mgs, killzone)

Both good consoles.

Ok there are like 4 games that have to be installed at like 5gb taking over 30mins

So if its got such a huge space on the disc why does it have to do that

Im all for blu ray and i want it as i have no other choice now hddvd is discontinued but id never waste my money on a ps3 for it

The 360 is coming to the end of its lifespan soon a new console is being designed atm so it will be released around 2010 - while the ps3 has pants graphics 360 will rule as it does now

Yeah just like Im playing my 1 month old PS3 all the time and never play my 16 month old xbox 360.

Oh wait its the other way around.

Your sir are a fanboy a classic one at that speaking about how bad everything else is and how its inferior.

A real unbiased person would say "both consoles are good but I prefer X console"

The funny thing is out of the great exclusives PS3 have how many are ORIGINALS! ANOTHER FF game, ANOTHER MGS game, Killzone 2

I am one of many 360 owners who has never had RROD, and why do Sony fanboys forget that one of the main reasons for the slimline ps2 was the absurd fail rate of the bulky PS2.

Its just a way to be negative about the competition, why are you so afraid? why be hugely critical of the competition otherwise

mgs isnt good? have a laugh lol

Its briliant the people that hate it usually cannot complete it !!!

Wants to be good..... only reason i got my PS3.... :D.... will have to give it a good dusting before i play onit mind
