    Love this game, MGS IV just purely pwns. Graphics & Gameplay <33 Wish the camera would be fixed on the player’s movements, would have been so much better for online.

    MGO seriously needs the way it weapons work and the weapons balance rethought, the game is worthless the way it is now.

    I wonder how much longer the MGO userbase will survive with the new king in town.

    MGO could easily live on if Konami started to to pay attention to what the fans wanted, being able to get this exspansion with the money on your PSN Store account is a step in the right direction but theres still along way to go.

    MGO could live on if Konami catered to the correct audience: The Western audeince.

    Infact those in the Japanese/Eastern Audience, have adapted to Western style in shooters anyway, so it’s a must.

    I loved MGO, in all honesty, the RPG systme was really addictive. The thing that initially didn’t bother me, but eventually killed it, was the whole messy sign in situation.

    If I coudl ahve clicked Online, and gone straight to a lobby, where I coudl otufit my character, and buy the extras from the PSn store, I would still be playing. Becuase it was really fun to be honest.

    Indeed Pud, the game suffers from old Japanese ideas that nearly no one else applies any more, when you look at how MGO works its like its a PS2 online game with region-locked servers and its own account/registration system, these are things no western dev would be caught dead doing in this day and age.
    The ‘RPG-ish’ element was indeed cool and made you want to come back, but the cons out weight the pros really.
