Free London newspaper the Metro has reviewed Metal Gear Solid 4 with a 3/5 (equivalent to a 6/10), Videogamer.com reports.
The paper hilariously insulted all Kojima fans by saying the plot was “utterly overblown” and that it “somehow manages to be both rubbish and exceptional at the same time”.
The review jumped at the gameplay as well as the storyline: “Solid Snake is back, older, wiser but unfortunately, if gameplay is anything to go by, more arthritic and boring”.
So, MGS4’s worst review came from a free British newspaper found on public transport. There’s probably some irony in there, if you look hard enough.
