MGS4: The best moments

MGS4: The best moments

Now that most of the fans have completed Metal Gear Solid 4 from head to toe and know all the dialogues by heart, it's time to please ourselves with gameplay videos showcasing the best moments of this already classic fourth and last episode of the Metal Gear Solid saga. More details after the jump.


For today's clips, let's begin with the impressive bike chase of Act 3 - Snake shooting ennemies in bullet-time while riding his mama's Harley is a quite priceless sequence. I don't play very well at the beginning, but it goes better after that.

Second video, the arrival at Shadow Moses nine years after the events of Metal Gear Solid. A nice sequence that should revive the memories and nostlagia of the most hardcore fans.

Third clip, the full infiltration scene of the Outer Heaven deck, performed without a kill nor alarm. Not as easy as it looks !

And finally, the fourth video immortalizes the final fight of the game, a bare-hand duel under the sun concluding the Metal Gear Solid saga in sweat, blood and old men groanings.

More videos will follow later, don't hesitate to write suggestions in the comments if you'd like to see a specific part of the game. Enjoy !

My favourite moments - Rex vs Ray, Snake crawling through the microwave corridor while Ray attacked Mei Lings's ship, Raiden vs Vamp, Snake vs Liquid atop the Outer Haven's deck, Meryl and Akiba kissing then fighting together, and Rex running through Shadow Moses.

That's true, its renders at 1024x768, but since it's an anamorphic it keeps the full vertical resolution so it's not too bad.

Maybe you should actually play the damn thing before commenting the graphics on game forums ? It should tell you something that everybody who has played the game praise the visuals.

And nobody's said it's the best looking game ever, it just looks very - very good, because the art is good, the tech is good and the athmosphere is great - something you don't really get off screenshots right ?

Yeah, there are no visible jaggies at all so it doesn't really matter. Nice the 4th video is up. Most epic bossfight ever!

Hmmm ... lemme guess: you dislike the game because its not a platform you don't personally own?
Commented on 2008-06-19 21:07:41
The graphics are amazing! No visible jaggies in both gameplay and cut scenes. I think the people who are complaining don't have a PS3 or haven't played it and only seen videos! Looks amazing on my 52" 1080p (Yer upscaled but who cares!)

Atmosphere is amazing and I love the split screen action near the end! Crawling through the microwave with the video playing on top was wicked! In fact there are to many best moments to list!

In the fight with Psycho Mantis did anyone else chance the controller to port 2? LOL I did was pretty funny!

Hmn.......well, the 720P video from Ninja Gaiden 2 back then looked EXACTLY like the game does, are you going to tell me that somehow, if I actually PLAY the game and not SEE the game it is going to look incredible?

Come ON! As long as the video is full resolution with no crappy compression (as are most Gamersyde videos), it is very fair to judge a game's graphics from full resolution videos. Oh and many stupid people have said it is the best looking game ever, and Gamespot's reviewer being one of them......I say, how quickly they forget about PC games, such as Crysis. The fact is just a bunch of hype that is overblown by AWESOMELY directed cutscenes.

"Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is the most technically stunning video game ever made."--Gamespot

And the Gamersyde videos show some TERRIBLE AI and somehow reviewers and gamers alike PRAISE the AI as well.

"Cutscenes that are rendered fully in real time within the game engine. It's impressive enough that these scenes look as good as any prerendered cinematic you've ever watched."--Gamespot

LOL, don't make me laugh.

"Regardless of the tactics you use, the level design and enemy artificial intelligence work in tandem to create unparalleled gameplay."--Gamespot

Yeah, like how they stay in the doorway just looking at you for 4 seconds while you shoot their faces? How they dance around them and they don't do s***?

Come on. I don't think the game is bad by any means, but I think this game is one of the most overrated games in history, and pretty much all over positive impressions and reviews are extremely swayed by hype.

The game has its flaws, and has been overpraised by the press, but that doesn't change anything to the fact that it's amazing in its own way.
Commented on 2008-06-19 21:26:14
It's MGS. Gameplay and graphics are secondary since the atmosphere makes up for any flaws you can think of.
Commented on 2008-06-19 21:29:32
I'm sorry I have a question. On Outer Heaven video at 4:40, 6:38 and especially at 8:15, was that a joke by Kojima or what? This is a stealth game? Hmn..........The AI was jaw dropping there, so that camo also blinds people......

I know it is awesome in its own way, and it is over hyped and isn't just the press. It even at points looks like a AAA game to me, but that is all.

And this right here, is what makes all my points valid. I don't think there is more to say.

I dont believe it, why these kinds of comments never get deleted. But if there's any bad comment about the 360 or an 360 game u get an lifetimeban.

@Your Post

Actually Halo 3 is the most overrated Game in Gaming-History. MGS4 just deserves the Hype and the Review Scores. If u never played it then pls don't judge on the game only because u are a fanboy of a certain other gaming platform!

I also played Crysis but compared to the Tech i have in my PC and the one the PS3 has the Graphics MGS4 has are beyond everything i played! The Cutzenes just look like some prerendered Square Enix Stuff but they are in Realtime, which is quite amazing. And the best thing is that there is no difference between the Cutzenes and Gameplay!

Well that's a GAME. When you have a 90%+ camo and you're in shadows, you're considered invisible. If you don't move enemies can't spot you.

Yeah but he's wrong. The gameplay is fun. There isn't enough in MGS4, that's a valid complain, but to say it doesn't matter, that's just nonsense. Anyway MGS4 is not your typical game, it's half a game half a 10hours OAV concluding the Metal Gear Solid saga, it's meant to be appreciated by a certain crowd and can't be judged in the same way you'd judge a normal game. It's a different experience.

True, and the game doesn't look bad at all. I think it's really solid! :)

    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 5 was a disaster storywise. Only way they can fix halo 6 is to drop that other spartan and focus only on master chief (5 Hours ago)

    amerakindesi To be frank though I loved halo 1, halo 2, halo 3, halo 4 campaigns in that order. 4 was my fav. (8 Hours ago)
