Metal Gear Solid 4 had a lot to live up to and it's done so brilliantly. It's a game that will go down in history as one of the most ambitious and cinematic ever made, but also, finally, and more importantly, it will go down as a MGS game with gameplay that doesn't polarise opinion. It's not without it problems, most notably in the change of pace in the last third and the often laborious cut scenes (if you could play even half of the best cinematic moments MGS4 would wipe the floor with the best games we've ever seen), but MGS fans won't care. Although unquestionably a game everyone should play, when you're forced to take the back seat the blurred line between a game and movie prevents MGS4 from being the 10/10 masterpiece we hoped it would be.
