Images of Metal Gear Solid 4

Images of Metal Gear Solid 4

Konami releases six vaguely new images of Metal Gear Solid 4. I'm almost sure I've already seen this gallery somewhere, but we never newsed it here anyway so at least it shouldn't be completely worthless.

the first and second shot are INSANELY good. i just hope the AA is anywhere close to this when your playing.

My honest opinion: I'm not that impressed.

HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE textures! my god what's up with that ???

it seems they're doing a bit of an assassins creed in terms of location specific colour filters. middle-eastern, outdoor environments are brown filtered, when they go back to alaska it looks blue filtered. i really liked that about assassins creed, gave each location its own identity while keeping the colour pallet complimentary.

EDIT : textures rarely hold up well when your that close, just play cod4 and you'll see the same thing. overall tho cod4 looks great, just like this game.

seriously this game has the worst textures ever

Well textures has been quite bad in almost every screenshot I have seen. So no surprises here.
Commented on 2008-03-25 22:03:35
I think the uneven balance of resources between character models and environments don't do this game any favour in screenshots.

Don't get the hype over this game. Nothing I've seen of this game appeals to me. From the boring setting, to the imo dull art and lame gameplay. I much prefer the 'James Bond approach' of Splinter Cell to this military stealth ninja theme MGS4 is going for.

Call me whatever fanboy you want, but this game has zero appeal to me so far. I keep hoping to be convinced otherwise, but so far all has failed to impress me.

the colors are drab as hell, but its looking better than before.

Needs color or at the very least a bit more contrast. At least Gears of War had some depth to the blacks and stuff. But other wise its pretty good, especially considering its primarily a 3rd person game. If the AA is near that then it will look great. AA is way under valued. I'm kinda tired of jaggy games like Halo 3. It looked great but the jaggies were a bit annoying at times.

imo they are, to me this game is the GT5 of action games in terms of models. i mean. some could argue its too sterile, but for me i like my games with nice clean lines. unlike halo 3 which has a staircase on the edge of every object. its no uncharted (STILL the best looking console game out there) but it still looks great. and while i personally dont think the textures are any better or worse then something like cod4 which was praised in terms of graphics (you get up close to a wall in cod4 and tell me it looks great...lol). i wouldnt care either way, becasue i'd take AA over high res textures any day. much like i'd take lighting over textures...hence why i like the look of killzone 2 and GTA4 over gears of war or halo. i just like the art style of MGS. always have, always will. but then maybe im biased since MGS1 is my fave game EVER.

doesn't look great , its disgusting, but good effort for boobies in the first pic , but her face looks like a dude.
Commented on 2008-03-25 23:15:31
Looks pretty awful.
Commented on 2008-03-25 23:21:27
this games needs to be 720p, but sony forcing them to do 1080p has hurt it, just look at the sheer lack of texturing effects and quality, all the resources go towards the character models
Commented on 2008-03-25 23:31:39
i dont own a ps3, but im always honest

i think it looks great.

if people are complaining about the textures, then i think you should look closer and make sure your not talking about the textures in the foreground that are SUPPOSED to be 'blurred' (like a COD4 screenshot if you aimed with a pistol and all the grass infront of you looked blurred) to make it look more realistic as if through a lens or human eye. For example the texture of the wall in the last pic.

just my thoughts
Commented on 2008-03-25 23:49:22
It looks good, but I agree that the unbalanced use of resources hurts the overall presentation.

I'm a big fan of the Metal Gear series, but I'm honestly not all that excited about this, particularly after seeing the latest trailer. It seems to be following on from MGS2 which was already completely over the top and ludicrous. I know the series was never meant to be realistic but they took it too far with MGS2 and from what I've seen of the fourth game, just looks comical. Can't take it seriously at all.

I also don't buy into the reasoning behind making Snake old because it's "more of a challenge with the next-gen capabilties". I won't pretend to be an expert, but from what I can tell it seems to be a lot easier to create realistic older looking characters and have them look great, than it is with younger character models. Not that I mind the fact he's old. He just needs to lose the tache.

Same here.

Yeah the environment textures don't look too grand but the character models look good.

I've never played any of the MGS' but they do seem quite interesting.

he's old because of fox die. did you not play the first MGS game?
Commented on 2008-03-26 00:17:27
Jeez. What's with all the texture hate? Seems like people need to complain about one thing or another. Yes, the environmental textures in the Ocelot pic are weak. But the character model textures are top notch. At the end of the day, people focus on the characters much more heavily than the environments so it balances out anyway. The pic of Vamp and Raiden showcase his attention to character model detail. Anyway, game looks good and is on my number one to buy list. The Raiden pic is kind of spoilerific though...

Wrong. He is old because of accelerated cell death, a byproduct of being a clone. If you played the first MGS, you would realize that Fox Die has nothing to do with aging. It initiates what looks like a "heart attack" to kill its victim, thus it is a weapon. Naomi made Fox Die a wild card, meaning it could kill Snake when he leasts expects it, something that has not been brought up yet in MGS2, but will most probably be brought up in MGS4.
