You may have noticed that today is the official launch day for Metal Gear Solid IV. Unfortunately, we will not be reviewing the game today. Often the timing of a review is at the mercy of a developer or publisher and in this case we weren't given a review build of the game until yesterday. I suppose mailing a review copy late isn't as bad as canceling an interview though.

Our options were to run a review based on limited, over-night play with the game, or to stick to our review guidelines and wait to finish the game completely before reviewing it. We went with the latter, of course. I apologize that our review is going to be running next week instead of the launch week, but I'd rather have a complete, in-depth review than something rushed out. In the meantime enjoy this picture of an egg frying.
