In MGS4 Snake is on his final mission,after the events of MGS2 Snake has mysteriously started to rapidly age,he is about 36 or so in MGS4 and has the body of a mid 60 year old man,this has a major emotional effect on his comrades from MGS 1 (mostly the ladies) After no cure is to be found by his best friend Otacon he is given less than a year to live.
Fast forward a few minutes and our old friend Colonel Campbell has found Snake and has told him his arch enemy has been found and that he must go stop whatever plans he has,that is his final mission.
With that being said I'll continue on with the review and try not to reveal any major story plots.
MGS4 introduces a new camouflage system that also doubles as a kind of muscle suit for the aging Snake,but don't let that fool you,Snake is still the tough-as-nails guy we all remember.
In MGS4 you will see a lot of old characters making a reappearance here,some will be looking as good as ever while...
Metal Gear Solid 4 is a unique title from the outset. It's bleak (yet simultaneously colorful, not sure how they did that) menu screen, it's "different" intro (it'll make sense when you watch it. Just don't forget to change the "channels")... And it really gives you a feeling that this is a labour of love, something which can be hard to find in games these days.
The story focuses entirely on Solid Snake, the hero of "Metal Gear Solid" 1 and 2. He's rapidly aging, and is sent on a mission in the middle east to apprehend his old nemesis. From there, Snake will become a globetrotter of sorts, visiting South America, Eastern Europe, and Alaska. Throughout, Snake will have to traverse battlefields as he sees fit, sneaking or engaging in combat. One sequence essentially forces you to sneak, which I appreciated.
This game is awesome. There are a bazzilion different weapons to choose from, evolved gameplay from previous titles which thankfully still has the same soul...
