Exactly what next gen is all about
There have been alot of games that have come along that havent lived up to their hype GTA4, HAZE and Army of Two. However finally there has come along a game that has lived up to all the hype.
Visiually this game is stunning and all aspects the people and the environment. Nothing seems out of place i would actaully say that the graphics are better than COD4.
The storyline is as ever in previous games epic. Games with a story this complex and interesting are few and far between and all the major characters are back and none of them seem out of place.
The gameplay is awesome the aiming system is brilliant. Movement of the characters including Snake are realistic and fit perfectly with the game.
Yes the seris has been all about stealth but i welcome the choice that has been given to the player about weither to ghost your way around a war zone or join in the fighting. This makes the game alot more interesting because you have more choice. And also gives you that replay ability aswell which is a grat add on.
The only drawbacks about this game is amount of memory that has to go on your ps3 but thats a problem with every game on the ps3.
Some people might say that the cut scenes are also a drawback. This i would tend to agreee with if the cut scenes were boring and nothing happened but they are interesting and have full of detail that make the storyline much more interesting.
Finally for people who are new to metal gear one thing people forget is that this is the final chapter of a long and complex story so people who have just played this game will not understand everything. However one thing that they have done is included flashback pictures during cut scenes. And for poeple who are compaining that it isnt enough and they are just pictures they have put a history of Metal Gear on the notice board on the PSN, if you pre ordered you should of got a dvd of the history of metal gear, also there are loads of sites that have the complete story. So if your new then read up on the previous story which is long and complex.
Anyways the only reason to buy a ps3 is for the exclusives i have all 3 current consoles and any muti platform games i have on the 360. This game is the reason to buy a ps3 its the reason i bought a one and havent looked back. Its an amazing game full of depth and stunning visuals and well worthy of a top rating from everyone.
