Stunning and awesome
9 January 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is easily the best game i have ever played .....I only recently purchased a Ps3, but the first game i bought was MGS4. Having said previously that MGS3 was my favourite game ever i didn't think it could be surpassed but boy was i wrong this game has everything , the graphics and game play are just out of this world, the characters are amazing .....And the boss fights well with each one i just kept saying wow. The fight in the snow with Crying Wolf was up there with the fight with The end from the 3rd game.......It really is a shame there will be no more Snake because i could go on forever with the best game series ever . To the makers of this game..........Well done !!!!
