    I finally got to play MSG4 and wow. What a reward for following a series. The storyline gets a little bit outrageous, but when its one you've been following for 13 years (I could never understand how people could watch those awful soap operas everyday, but maybe nowthat i seewas lol) you can let some things slide to make up for some epic playability.

    The end of Act 4 and on is any fans dream of how the main series could have concluded, and even just in passing, an action gamers dream.

    Basically Solid Snake has been trying to punch Liquid Snake (Ocelot) in the face since MSG2.

    Any fans out there?

    Man, the story line took all those weird plot ideas cooked up by number 2 and worked them together pretty well. And you get to use Metal Gear REX. :) very rewarding.

    And the whole series had its fair share of slashing in it. There was a cyborg ninja in about all of the games.

    I have only played MGS 1, there wasn't any slashing in it ... except for the ninja and we have to beat him without any of our weapons ...

    Yeah, all of the slashing is in cut scenes. You really need to track a ps2 down and play 2 and 3
