Trivia

In an original draft of this game, the ending had Solid Snake and Otacon turning themselves in for the crimes they committed, and executed. Most of the staff vetoed this option, so it was not used. See more »

Goofs

In this game, we're told that Para-Medic, the female doctor from Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, was Dr. Clark, who Naomi mentioned several times in Metal Gear Solid. However, Naomi always referred to this person as male. This is an unfortunate translational error: the Japanese language provides many gender-neutral terms, so Clark's gender was never specified in the Japanese version of the first game. The "Metal Gear Solid Database" which Konami have released fudges this by claiming Dr. Clark was secretive, and Naomi mistakenly assumed she was male as a result. See more »

Cinematics and Gameplay have never been so well fused!
5 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In all fairness, the first 3 MGS games felt kind of clunky, with the bird's eye style of isometric style, it was really hard considering it is a stealth game. MGS4GoP changes everything. This is the game that every company wished they had control over, it is the game all the developers put at the top of their resume, the game they have never taken so seriously.

This game brought me to my knees by the end, and when it was over, I begged for more, which there is, an excellent online mode that could honestly be a stand-alone experience. As the credits role, you reflect on the time you took,and remember the story and the plot, and smile, knowing that this was the perfect ending to any series of any form of media ever.

The gameplay is strategic and fun, you will never get bored with it. There is a crazy amount of weapons and items to use, many have a purpose, many are bonuses for playing with. There is immense replay value, as the game is structured to be play multiple times over.

The story is nothing short of a masterpiece. The plot is intricate and interesting, full of twists and conflicts, all keeping you anxious as you near the ends of levels. The story is played out by in game rendered cutscenes, but worry not, the graphics in MGS4 are probably the best graphics on any next-gen systems, and while watching, you'll notice little details and other things that make the world seem more alive.

Metal Gear Solid 4 is a candidate for best sequel, game of the year, best game ever, best game on PS3, best story, and best protagonist: Solid Snake. Snake is such a lovable character, and he puts on his best and final performance in his final adventure. Rest Snake, you deserve it. MGS4 will always have a special reserved spot in my heart.

Whenever you get the chance, buy this epic game. You will not be disappointed. Gamers everywhere need to take their hats off to Snake, he put on an unforgettable show.
