4am and No Longer First Impressions

Last night I realised I'd played MGS4 until 4 am. If I ever had any doubts about the game, I guess this should prove them wrong.

Once I got used to the slight differences in controls, I've only been falling more and more in love with this game. It's a true Metal Gear Solid, that's for sure. All the classic elements are there. But it also manages to be fresh at the same time, and there's a lot of variety that keeps you going. If I have one complaint, it's that the boss team this time lacks a little in personality. But I'm not gonna get into this too deep right now. I'll write the review once I've completed it, as usual.

I think I must say, though, that it's the best new game I've played in years. Since, well, MGS3 came out, I guess (and I think it surpasses that). Looking back, there really haven't been many truly amazing games in the last half of the decade. There have been a few rather fun games (Lego Star Wars or Dirge of Cerberos to name a couple), but no really huge favourites, the likes of Silent Hill 2 and 3, Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3, or Guilty Gear X2. And practically no great RPGs since the PSOne era.
