Eurogamer reviews MGS4

   0


There's almost too much going on. With a see-sawing episodic rhythm that visits some starkly different locations and play styles, a wealth of incidental and hidden detail, more gameplay mechanics than you can fully explore in a single playthrough - and above all, an epic, elegiac, arcane storyline that seeks to tie up every last loose thread and honour the passing of a classic videogame hero - Metal Gear Solid 4 is, in most senses, the biggest Metal Gear yet. But the best? Maybe not. If the super-slick thriller of the first Metal Gear Solid remains Kojima's masterpiece, then this operatic monster is his magnum opus.

If I were ever to become a games journalist, this is how I'd like to write. Damn.

I'm terrible at playing video games. I buy more than I finish, and almost always end up spending more time on Animal Crossing than anything else. Sickening, really.
