Gametrailers.com has released their review of Metal Gear Solid 4 and I can say is that it seems like they can’t make up their minds.
Throughout the review, they seem to point out a lot of the flaws in the game. While also highlighting its merits it felt to me like they had a lot of issues with it. In the end however, they land up giving the game a 9.3 out of 10. I don’t really understand what they are getting at. If the game has so many issues, give it a bad score, if it doesn’t give it a good score. In the 10 minutes that the video is running they mention a lot of problems that they found and then end it off by saying that it’s great.
I personally think this game looks fantastic, but then I started hearing about issues that they have with the controls and the story and I felt a little put off. But when the score came up it made me like the game again. A review is supposed to help me decide if the game is worth the money or not. It’s not supposed to confuse me.
It’s reviews like this that make me wonder if the review system used by almost everyone these days is flawed.
