Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes
Great! It was lacking in overall story but i had a blast with it. If you are a fan of the series i would highly recommend to pick it up!
Losing a great franchise!
I see what they were trying to do, but this is just not working. try working on a TV series with this format not good for games absolutely too short for people who stand good money
may be short but awesome
Yes it is short but i didn't give a dame its so fun from the gameplay to the graphics its super fun its one of the most gorgeous games I've played thet
Honestly this is a good piece of a metal gear game. But feels more like a add on DLC of sorts. It's a great from a gameplay MGS expectancy level. Except for no David Hayter which I remove a point alone for. Keith Sutherland does a okay job but the dialogue feels off. When I first started I couldn't tell who was talking...if that was Hayter that wouldn't of happened. I think this game is worth it to die hard fans who will milk their 30$ outta it . Our mgs fix till 2015 but I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone but it's already established fan base. You'll be disappointed with the 30$ you spent otherwise. All in all a good taste of phantom pain but only hope is if they ever go back to Solid Snake they better use David Hayter that's all Kojima!
Short, but has me excited for Phantom Pain.
As the prologue for the next FULL MGS game Phantom Pain, this does not fail to please. The graphics are beautiful, the gameplay is fun and Kiefer Sutherland does a fantastic job of replacing David Hayter as Solid Snake. My only issue is, this is for digital download on last-gen systems for 20 dollars. Although I new it would be short, I would have liked to have had the option of paying for a 20 dollar digital download on next gen as well. That was my only complaint, I don't think it should be free as some of the reviewers here, but I do think that the digital download prices should match because all your paying for is some extra polygons seeing as the content is exactly the same as the 360. I would have been ok with the Xbone version on disk being 30 and the 360 version on disk being 20 because at that point your paying for a blue-ray on one and dvd on the other, but the difference in digital price is nothing more than a ploy to play for a few extra polygons. I digress, if you love the MGS series, get this on last-gen digital download unless you must have the best looking.
I admit it it the main campaign is short, but depending on how you play it, if you rush through it you can finish it in about an hour, but if you take your time you can finish it in 2 and a half hours. But the gameplay and side missions really make up for it, it was fun and has tons of challenging things to do, it really explains the controls for phantom pain and leaves me hanging what will happen next? Overall this is a great prologue to the big open world of phantom pain!
What kind of player are you?
This is a great game for the price. It's true, the main story is very short but since when is that the only factor that defines a game? There is a ton of replay value here as well as multiple side missions upon completion. The game lures back into the main quest with a great deal of variability in every play through. I've been through the story 4-5 times and I still keep coming back for more. If you're the type of player that puts the controller down and walks away after the main quest then don't waste your time as you will be disappointed. But if you long to clear every side mission, collect every collectible, and get the most out of your games this purchase is a no-brainer. I've already pulled 6 hours of playtime without touching one side mission or playing on hard. With at least 12 hours of gameplay it is easily worth $30 and not to mention the best looking game on the system.
Not sure why everyone is acting so surprised..
The game was revealed to be an "extended demo" by its creators and developers. Did you honestly think they would release a next gen game like this for only $30 if it was a full game? The game gives you plenty to do. After you beat the first mission, FOUR more are unlocked for you with a fifth being unlocked by collecting a certain item. If you're a fan, this is worth it.
I played this game for about 10 minutes and didn't even want to finish it. If I sneak up behind someone I want a cool finishing move not a karate chop and their dead. After playing Splinter Cell Blacklist my expectations are high for stealth game and this one fell short from the start. They barely give you any instructions on how to play the game, the button are confusing even though you can change it. I would not buy this game at all and it makes me think twice about even getting the one that comes at later.
Graphics may be good, not enough to make up for the poor game play. 3rd person only! Even when you are sniping??? Suppose to be a "sandbox' game but I felt like I have to do it their way or else. I was really looking forward to this, but was extremely disappointed. I will definitely NOT be buying the whole version. This was a waste of my money : (
