MGS4: Perfect 10!!!
IGN, my favorite (although fallable) pro review source, gave MGS4 a perfect 10!
They haven’t given out a perfect 10 in a full 10 years of reviewing all major games, and this is the second 10 they’ve given out in the past two months (the other being the completely worthy GTA4). My expectations have shot through the roof for this title.
Here’s a brief quote of their gushing praise:
Is it possible to give a game an 11? If so, this would be the game that would merit that score. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is a title that exceeds all of the hype that was attached to the title. Regardless of whether you’ve seen every trailer and screenshot, read every preview and heard every interview, you won’t get a full sense of how phenomenal this title is unless you sit down and experience it for yourself.
It’s easy to throw around such words, so I will really have to see for myself. My pre-order is ready to be picked up and I can’t wait. If you’ve tried it, please share any spoiler-free impressions.
