Gaming has Changed
5 March 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In an older trailer, Otacon says: "It'll be worth the wait". How right he was. How right he was.

There is not much more to say.

If you've played this game, you'll agree. If you've played this game and don't agree, see a doctor. If you've not played this game, what's wrong with you?

A milestone of brilliance. A touchstone of excellence. A game fitting of the title 'epic'.

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is one of those pieces which intensifies the hope that there is a future for video gaming, that there is a future for movies - which the game essentially is.

Games have Changed.
