Metal Gear Solid 4 garners a perfect score in Famitsu


While the only videogame reviews that really matter are the ones on Destructoid.com, when a game gets a perfect score in Japanese publication Famitsu, people listen.

And that’s exactly what Metal Gear Solid 4 just accomplished: All four reviewers in the popular magazine gave the upcoming PlayStation 3 game a 10, bringing its overall score to a perfect 40. While the opinion of four people is not the final word on whether a game will be good or not, I have always been fascinated by the games that receive perfect scores in Famitsu.

Over the years, only seven other videogames have accomplished this feat: The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time, Soulcalibur, Vagrant Story, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Nintendogs, Final Fantasy XII, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Although varied almost to the point of being random, I adore each and every one of these games. It is neat to know that Metal Gear Solid 4 (the first PS3 game!) will be joining this exclusive club.

The only bad news: This does not help with the agonizing wait until next week when the game finally hits store shelves.
