MGS4: Guns of the Patriots was an amazing experience the first couple times I played it, but when it comes to replaying it, I can't stand the game. Drebin is totally unnecessary, the bosses suck because they have no character whatsoever and are annoying with their poorly acted screams, crying, and laughing, the ending SUCKS, and there's very little room for interpretation. I rated it a 10/10 after I played it twice, but now I feel like it's a solid 8/10. It also infuriated me that you could have about 9 or 10 items equipped for easy access, but only 5 weapons. WTF?
I think MGS4 could've been polished out so much more. I don't even know where to begin.
Kojima would've been able to put out a complete version of the game if Sony would've allowed him to release it on two Blu Ray discs like it should've been.
Two blu ray discs= 50GB
One dual layer blu-ray disc=50GB
That is not the reason why people say MGS4 lacked polish.
IMO, the only thing that Kojima could've refined was the CQC. It was too slow paced.
@Sorcery- I liked Drebin. I thought the boss fights were good but there was no real point for the beauties to exist. Vamp and Liquid Ocelot boss fights were great. And the ending did not suck. I was confused why Big Boss was still alive but the debriefing explained it pretty well. The ending is one that you can enjoy if you watched all the cut scenes.
