A Benchmark In Gaming!
Quite simply, MGS creator Hideo Kojima has concluded a 21 year series with a spectacular finale. The PS3 has finally been given a title that shows the machine's superior graphical and playability power. If you are a previous MGS follower then you will be delighted to know that MGS4 ties every single story strand and its complexitities in this title. YES the cut scenes are long BUT they are quality and are needed to explain all the unanswered questions. After the dissapointment that was GTA4 it goe's to show that if a developer works on one dedicated console rather than multi platform release then a quality product will be born rather than a rush job. The PS3 has suffered because of multi platform releasing but at last this game is not just a benchmark for the PS3 but for gaming as a whole. The mixture of emotions Hideo Kojima makes you feel whilst playing this title is unbelievable, I have been a gamer since the early days of Spectrum48k and Commodore 64k and I can safely say that this is the best and ulimate benchmark in gaming for at least 24 years! If you don't own a PS3 yet love gaming, you honestly owe it to yourself to play this game by what ever means. The question is 'what can possibly surpass this work of genius?'. p.s. if you are a previous follower of the MGS series, make sure you watch the entire credits at the end, because as you will be beaware, Hideo Kojima always has a extra trick up his sleeve!!
