  SIMPLY AWESOME!

| | See all Pricey1509's reviews (19)

Had the game since day of release and just thought I would have a blast on it again! And what a fantastic game! It's 4 years old I think and still up there with the uncharted games graphic wise and gameplay wise! Not a problem at all! I really like the way it plays! And even little things like the way u got to do the flashbacks ur self! And drive the mk2 around during mission briefings and find things! Can't wait for the next 1 love the game to pieces!!

  The Perfect ending to the series

| | See all DanElvins's reviews (10)

Guns of the Patriots is the perfect ending to the MGS franchise, ties up all the plotlines (too many in fact) into a neat little bundle leaving you wondering nothing at the end.

Gameplay:

The gameplay is fun if a little slow, the camo system is a nice addition to the gameplay. Many players will be pleased that this game gives the option to play in pure first person if you want, whilst I think this is nice, I think it sort of defeats the objective of a stealth based game.

Storyline:

The story is great, though the cutscenes are far too long, the opening cutscene along is around 30 or so minutes before you play the game for 5 minutes before a further 10 minute cutscene jumps in the way.

Music:
The soundtrack is fantastic, perhaps not the very strongest in the series but some great tracks exist in this game.

Length:

This is the main issue with the game, the length, MGS has always been a rather short game (1-2 hours completion time are required to get the Big Boss Codename in 1-3), but ths game takes it the extra mile, the final act of the game has around 10 minutes of actual gameplay, the rest is a boss battle and a quicktime sequence, this is a section I was personally looking forward to so I aws extreemly dissapointed.

The return to an previous game area (I wont spoil it) was a great treat, however I wish more areas were accessable, it was nice to see how things have changed since then, though a few guards would have been nice.

Overall I'd give this game an 8/10, I loved it as an MGS fan but as a gamer I disliked that it was so short, especialy after the extreemly long wait.

  One of the best...

After playing mgs 1, 2, 3 this is a incredible end to the solid snake saga. One of the best storylines ever created and some of the best characters aswell. The graphics are unreal and the gameplay is the classic mgs stealth based combat which runs smooth and the different ways to eliminate people proves extremely satisfying. Overall its worth buying a ps3 simply for this game because its the best for this console.

  A true masterpiece - the level a ps3 game should ever be!

In all my years of videogaming, remebering also MGS1 on PS3, this game is absolutely outstanding, a true masterpiece...it has everything, graphics, gameplay, tactics, actions, sound/video mixing...and above all, AN INCREDIBLE STORY, this is one of the best games I've ever played...for all those who want to experience a true ps3, this is it (if you played the others it a big bonus, and if you played MGS1 - you will have flashbacks in your mind of the old game as soon as you meet certain characters or visit certain places....welll...a 5 star rating is not enough...they should create a rating just for this game which is infinity:)

  A must-have for every (tactical) 3rd person shooter fan

Absolutely amazing! I used to like splinter cell better..... but this one had me since day 1. It's pretty hard but still an incredible game, loved the multiplayer. Weapons (buy/use) are very good and you find a solution to your every problems with a gun or an item if you think it through. This is one of the best game i've ever played.

  LOVE THIS GAME!!

I love this game, I highly recommend playing throught the others first. After playing the first game and being able to revisit some of the areas is really nostalgic for me as I played MGS1 when it was first out, its also emotional to see solid snake becoming old.

  brilliant love it

THIS IS BRILLIANT , it completes the metal gear story which this game is one of my top 3 all time sets of games metal gear 1 ,2,3 was brilliant and this 1 is even better , and at the end when you learn about everything its jus like watching a film lol , its brilliant and snake is very old but it goes with the storyline brilliantly .. IF YOUR A METAL GEAR FAN THEN DEFFO BUY THIS GAME

  Best Game Ever

If you liked the previous metal gears, splinter cells, modern warfares etc then this is the game for you. The graphics are amazing, the ability to buy and customize guns is spectacular and the story is a fitting end for Solid Snake. I recommend that you play the previous titles before this one because you'll appreciate the story a lot more. Having said this, if you have no interest in the story and just want to play probably the best shooter ever save yourself some time and skip through the long videos.

  Best Game Ever!!!

I am a fan of MGS i have loved every one of them so far, and this is just a masterpeice. The story stealthy and action packed,if you have played all of the MGS games and know the story you will find it so epic and sad, but it was the online that i loved most. The online delivers everything, you can do sooo much on it, you have to get used to it at first but once you get the hang of it its awesome. The graphics are amazing, the music is amazing, the gameplay is amazing, i love every single thing about this game and if i could rate it more i would. Probably my favourite game. Legendary Game!
