Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.

This is my personal review of Metal Gear Solid 4 on PS3:

I recently finished this Kojima's masterpiece and I really wanted to write a review about it. Now that I have a blog, I can finally do it.
So here it is, my first review of MGS4:

Incredible crisp graphics...
Metal Gear games were always pushing the hardware to it's limits, even with old ones, like MGS. And MGS4 is not an exception. The graphics looks so crisp and precise that you might even mistake them for a real life!
And, with the processing power of PS3, there are hardly any loads and locations are huge, so you can enjoy the view.
Personally, the streets of east Europe were excellent with perfect mood only possible because of epic graphics.

Sounds and Music
Only one word, Greg-Williams! Seriously, his work on music scores is epic. They feel like a movie and with a huge amount of cutscenes in the game, it is movie worthy too!
I really need to get a soundtrack for this game.

Get to da choppa!
 Gameplay is standard for a Metal Gear Solid games. But it isn't bad at all!
Some things were simplified, like a camouflage, which is now self changing OctoCamo instead of regular one like in the MGS3. Ammo is now buyable too, for Drebin Points which makes it really fast paced and enjoyable.

Meryl is back!

Finally, the most important thing. The story.
I really enjoyed that a lot of old characters are back, like Meryl or Campbell. But story itself is really enjoyable too. I really liked the ending too (which I won't spoil for you, but it moved me to tears...).

Ending words:
Buy this game. Now. I give it 10/10.
