The best PS3 can offer thus far

  • May 13, 2009

Let me start by saying this game has a mature rating and is not intended for gamers under seventeen. With that said let us begin, shall we? Six years ago there was an incident called "Big Shell" and since then the world has become dependant on war. Enter solid Snake, an aging special agent with clone body thrown into the fire for one last hoorah. His mission: to terminate his twin brother, Liquid Ocelot. But wait...didn't his brother die in part one? Yes! His spirit, will, and drive have been infused with another named, Revolver Ocelot. If Solid Snake fails at his mission, the armies of the PCM will seize control of the free world. Aided by his good friend, Dr. Hal "Otacon" Emmerich, Solid Snake accepts his mission and goes of to save the world. Should I continue with the story or move to the gameplay? I'll move to the gameplay.

The controls for MGS$ are some of the smoothest around. The story is a free reign game, which means you have complete control of how you wish to proceed. This is a feature, I for one, love...as I often find myself delving off track. The style of gameplay is also left up to the gamer. You can go John Wayne style with your guns blazing....or, you can go James Bond style and slip past your enemies. Regardless of which style you choose to incorporate, the game will adjust to you. This is by far the best game thus released for the PS3 and if I had just one knock against it, it would be that it's a tad short. Other than that, this is the game that will keep you busy for one hundred plus hours. Highly recommend.

Metal Gear Solid IV Guns Of The Patriots Review- Is This The End Of The Age of Heroes?
There has been much anticipation surrounding the latest chapter in the MGS saga and I am happy to report that this one didn’t disappoint. Up until now games like Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare were the gold standard as far as the PS3 console was concerned, they were. After playing through MGS 4, I have to say that this is not only the greatest PS3 title to date, this may quite be the greatest game I have ever played on any console and yes I understand the …
