Pefcect ending to a perfect series.
16 May 2009 | by Ztwelve14See all my reviews

In my opinion, this is probably the best installment of the Metal Gear Solid saga. Everything that me and definitely a lot of other people hoped for in the series will be a reality. And we were right! Hideo really pulled out all the stops on this one! The graphics were top notch, the AI was excellent, the voice acting was incredible, and of course the weapons, what's a Metal Gear Solid game without the awesome weapons? But the one thing I admire most about this game is the incredibly realistic detail. The detail of this game is so amazing that you might think you are out there yourself. I mean, from big stuff like, gunshot sounds and the way people react when you bump into them to the small stuff like, a drop of rain on the camera, bent grass trampled underfoot, snow getting in your hair, hearing a train far away in the background, if you get close to a building, you can hear the people inside, that kind of stuff. The story is amazing too. Get this game! You won't be disappointed.
