OPM UK: MGS4 Nets First Perfect 10

The launch of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is exactly one month away, but the first review of this giant title has already surfaced on the Internet.

We had heard that the first review would show up in this month's edition of the Official PlayStation Magazine, and that is indeed the case. If you head on over to GamesRadar, you'll find the cover of OPM UK, and it's clear the MGS4 review is featured. They also talk to the Paul Fitzpatrick - he wrote the review - and they learn a few very interesting pieces of information, including the fact that it took him just under 30 hours to complete his adventure. Not surprisingly, he ended up awarding the perfect 10 score, citing only a Lord of the Rings: Return of the King syndrome (the ending just wouldn't end) and a small issue with the auto-aim as flaws. Fitzpatrick also said-

"For me, like the greatest films, it's outstanding because of, and not despite, its idiosyncrasies and flaws. It's the expression of one very creative person's vision and to see that undiluted with all it's eccentricities and genius intact is remarkable. It's also a cracking story and truly rewarding to play."

Yep, sounds good to us. We can't wait to dive into this one, and we're counting the days. Stay tuned for our review upon the game's launch, which is guaranteed to be both accurate and epic.

well as nice as it is to hear that someone gave MGS4 a perfect score already...it just kinda sucks it had to be OPM considering they are able to be biased. Its like hearing a xbox magazine saying Halo 3 was the greatest EVER or the Nintendo Power giving any of its Mario games a high score...now if PSX gave them a 9.5...i'd have to believe em ;-P

You can ALWAYS trust our reviews. We're hardly on Sony's payroll and in fact, if you do the research, we're just as hard - if not harder - on most PS3 games than any other publication around...

Both Arnold and I have relatively high standards, but we still reward a game with an excellent score if it deserves it. We're gamers, first and foremost. ;)

@Minishmaru - I was thinking the same thing.

30 hours to finish the game? That sounds kinda long, hopefully the length of the game doesn't affect the flow.

I really hope it scores higher than GTA4. Which is gonna be hard.
