View Full Version : Who else thought MGS4 was dissapointing

The story was finely tuned, but the gameplay itself was smacked in the face with a 2003 3rd person system. The game play I felt was nothing short of a disappointment.
The ending was pretty craptastic as well for snake.
It was a movie, it was preachy, it wasn't metal gear to me.

It was a movie, it was preachy....
Sounds like Metal Gear to me.
Anyways I've been dying to play MGS4 myself, but I'm too lazy to finish MGS3. All I've heard so far was basically if your a big fan of the series you'll enjoy it. I'm not a big fan per say, so if I feel the story is too needlessly convoluted for its own good(which I've heard it was), I'll probably be disappointed.
I don't mind the game being more of an interactive movie. I'm fine with that. After all, I absolutely loved Dreamfall for the X-box. Most complicated stories don't need explanations for every damn thing thats happening. That's when you have genius changing to convolution and that convolution then into a mess. I hope MGS4 doesn't feel that way to me in the end.
