EGM says “NO” to MGS4 Review Score, In Next Issue

June 2, 2008 / 06:39 PM EDT / (@)

While Metal Gear Solid 4 has been getting great reviews from early reviewers, Electronic Gaming Monthly became the exception. They didn’t give MGS a bad score, they gave it no score at all.

It was rumored that Konami has said that details about the length of cutscenes, install time, and a number of other quirks must be omitted from early print reviews.

The editors of EGM decided against giving out scores due to “the limitations Konami wanted to impose on our comments.” They instead printed a five-page roundtable discussion instead, one mostly filled with praise but with a few “not quite so excellent” comments such as saying that the control system is not as good as Splinter Cell’s.

Instead, the next issue will contain the review for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots with a score.
