      tl;dr explanation of rating: Phantom Pain would be five stars if it weren't for the fact its not finished (-1 star) and the story quality takes a nose dive half way through (-1 star) The internet's general impression about MGS5: Phantom Pain is that it starts off great, but falls apart and reveals itself to be an unfinished mess. This is 100% true and proves to be Metal Gear Solid 5's biggest flaw. The first chapter hits all the right notes. The prologue mission is incredible; does the perfect job of pulling the player in. Even the very first mission does an excellent job giving the impression of how amazing the game is going to be. The first chapter as a whole mostly lives up to what you would expect and want in a Metal Gear Solid game. Then you hit chapter 2 and MGS 5 goes off the rails and explodes into a burning train wreck. The story becomes super absurd. Most of the new story missions are exact copies of chapter 1 missions with special restrictions. It all just falls apart becoming unsatisfying and inconclusive. The end product would have benefited if chapter 2 was scrapped altogether. It would've been wiser for Konami to release each chapter individually at a reduced price instead of push an unfinished product. Its clear development was way in over its head unable to come close to meeting its goals by the September 1st ship date and they had to gut chapter 2 and cut a lot of content because of it. In spite of this the actual game itself is mostly good. The play is great for the most part, but there are lots of rough spots the player will run into as they play. For instance Snake has lots of trouble getting over ankle high rocks without sliding back down them. The game's variable difficulty also tends to make it super obnoxiously difficult at times as well. The other unfortunate aspect about MGS5 is that its secretly #6 in the series. Peace Walker was unofficially 5, and if you're familiar with the MGS series, they're like the Star Trek movies. Except its the even # ones that have terribad stories. Phantom Pain comes close to breaking this trend, but ultimately fails. Starting almost as soon as you run into Code Talker. He essentially ruins the story single handedly. This is Hideo Kojima's last game with Konami. Konami also appears to be abandoning video game development. And, personally, I feel MGS5 is a last hurrah for Japanese developed AAA video games as well. Overall, I do feel that MGS5 is worth $60. Despite its shortcomings, the game does deliver enough content to live up to that price. The first chapter alone takes between 40-50 hours to complete and is very good. Unfortunately the rest isn't as long or good.

      I never played a single Metal Gear game and I was sort of cautious in starting the last one. That being said, I bought this game anyway and began to play. Instantly, I was blown away. It's gorgeous, badass, hilarious, engaging, and overall amazing. The combat suits all play styles, from charging in guns blazing to stealthily crawling around enemy territory. Side missions are plentiful, sometimes repetitive but always worth it. This is an epic game for the ages. As far as the story goes, it's an original and very interesting, full of twists has two chapters (I highly recommend doing the Quiet missions). There is loads customization, from forming Mother Base to even putting an eye patch on your pet dog. It isn't quite an RPG, but the ability to build your own guns for certain missions and putting on different suits really makes it have it's own elements of one. You can even play as your own staff members if you want. I spent a lot of time just goofing off and trying to fulton a tank full of C4, then blowing it up mid air to destroy a helicopter. It's special moments like those that make this game so great. There were no glitches since release that I found and the frame rate is the best of any game I have ever played, being perfectly fluid with no drops of any kind. Finding creative ways to take over a base is always fun. It has an open world setting, which I hear is uncommon for these games. It has two huge maps in both Afghanistan and Africa, each with very different aesthetics and details. It made me feel as if I was actually there. The online mode for the game is unique and amazing, with different maps and game modes to choose from. It reminded me of Uncharted's multiplayer, except much better and more defined. Customizable characters and classes are again available in multiplayer online, allowing for a different style of play for every situation. Definitely a game newcomers, regulars, and hardcore gamers can all enjoy. It's a must have even if you haven't played other games in the series.

      I have an Xbox, my metal gear history goes like this, never played one, played sons of Liberty(the 2nd one) on the original Xbox when it releases with more content, coincidentally calling it substance. Played snake eater(the 3rd one) when it was a dual combo that came out with the 2nd one on the Xbox 360. Never played the 4th one, which as I far as I know is exclusive to the PlayStation. I don't really care. I like the series and I love the character, but having been introduced to the series with the 2nd one just ruined me. I went through it completing the game many times, not to mention going %100 on the VR missions because I read that there was a skateboarding mode. Which come to find out was possibly an Aprils fools prank or is just exclusively for the PlayStation. Again. I honest to god believed that you could unlock akuma in resident evil 2 by beating the game twice in less than 3 hours with each character, getting an S ranking? And not using any herbs or saving. Not sure on the specifics but runs along those lines. I believed that when tips n tricks magazine released it in their Aprils fools edition in I believe 1999. I believed that until last year! When I looked it up because akuma ran through my mind. I was so mad. It wasn't like finding out Santa Claus isn't real, because this was plausible. You could have access to many doors without keys you didn't need weapons since you could hadouken zombies in their face. Because both street fighter and resident evil were made by capcom or they own it or something I don't know I don't care. Not anymore. They had screen shots of akuma in the game being all cool and stuff. And I didn't have a PlayStation at the time so I couldn't play it and as I got older it just subsided. But it was something that was near to my heart. Especially considering I read that magazine after a typhoon hit the island of Guam during my Christmas break. Anyways I like this game it's cool.

      Excellent stealth action game

      This game is quite different from many of the Metal Gear games that came before, but it is still a great addition to the series. The focus of this game shifts from a story-driven, linear structure to an open world sandbox style. You are given the utmost freedom in choosing how to complete the copious side and main story missions. Many of the missions are similar to the enemy outposts seen in the Far Cry series, but you have even more options for how to tackle them in this game. Stealth is often the best path (this is Metal Gear, after all), but you can go in with guns blazing if you desire. The tight gameplay and expansive arsenal of weapons and gadgets ensure that either is a viable play style. While the missions themselves are fun and thrilling, one of the main draws to this game is Mother Base. Throughout the game, you are given the opportunity to level up your headquarters using resources found in the game world. You can also extract enemy soldiers and equipment to staff Mother Base, so it is often a better strategy to use non-lethal means on your missions. As you level up Mother Base, you are granted access to increasingly useful research projects, which allow you to equip powerful items in the field. In short, this is an excellent game for fans of the Metal Gear series, action games, stealth games, and open world games that give the player options for completing tasks. The missions are well designed, the progression system is rewarding, and the story is interesting (even if it is not as much of a focal point as in previous Metal Gear games). I have only completed about 20% of the game thus far, and I am having a blast with it! I am anxious to see what the rest of the game has in store.

      I'm at least 30 hours into this game and I see no end in sight and that's a good thing. There are pros and cons to this game as with any other, but the overall experience has been awesome. I've read some polarizing reviews from fans and newcomers alike, but in my opinion this is one of the best of stealth action games I ever played. Pros: Addicting game play. Graphics and sound design or top-notch. Stealth mechanics at its finest. Gadgets and weaponry galore. Challenging and lengthy in a good way. It seems that almost everything you pick up and gather, matter to the game. It's not just arbitrary collecting. The buddy system is a breath of fresh air. Staff and resource management, developing/upgrading weaponry and the " mother base " itself make the game feel more fleshed out. Side note: " Mother Base" development carries over to the online portion known as FOB missions. I haven't done anything regarding online because the multiplayer portion hasn't been fully unlocked yet. Cons: Convoluted story ( per usual with Metal Gear games) Weapon and gadget selection during gameplay can sometimes feel like it's working against you. Every main mission starts off as if it's the first time you've ever played the game. Some of the mission types get a little repetitive. Aside from that, if you are looking for one of the best stealth action games you can possibly get this generation look no further.

      I've been playing it for about six hours now. Here are my thought: 1. EVERYONE has to play the first mission of this game ("Prologue"). It's one of those rare moments in gaming when you actually FEEL like you're the character. It's very graphic, though, so I wouldn't sit the entire family around the TV for this one. 2. I just finished Far Cry 4 and this has a lot of the same elements in it. For instance, when "attacking" an installation I spend some time "tagging" the enemies with my binocular just like I did in Far Cry 4. 3. Graphics are the best I've seen yet on Xbox One. 4. Very elaborate controls, in my opinion - almost to the point of being confusing. Lots of "Hold down the D pad while pressing the left button while selecting AND pushing down with the R analog stick" kind of stuff. Still not used to it all. 5. The story is solid and the voice acting is great! 6. I like the "Mother Base" component to the game. It's a great way to customize and pick the equipment you want without adding too much management overhead. 7. It's kind of "open world." It's not nearly as open as Skyrim or something like that where you literally can just go do whatever you want. Great game. Glad I bought it. Look forward to MANY more hours of enjoyment

      A contender for GOTY

      Metal gear solid 5 is itself a work of art. It sucks you in from the very beginning with its introduction of what happened to Big Boss nine years after ground zeros and immediately puts in the action of what Big Boss and his crews main objective is....revenge! The gameplay in this game is a very unique one. Unlike in previous Metal Gear games where its more of a linear tactical game the fifth installment to the series is full open world and you have the choice to be fully tacticful to get that S rank on a mission or go full on Rambo. The action in this game is so addicting that even the most repetitive missions in this game are amazingly fun every time thanks to full freedom of choice. You can have a buddy with you scout the mission area while you just recieve the target without any enemys spotting you or you can take out every enemy there with helicopter support. The graphics in this game is another plus thanks to the adaptable Fox engine. There is tons of stuff to do in this game and the fact that everything you do has a purpose is just great. The story and its charcters is so inviting and original you will feel like your in a movie. All in all the game is a must buy for 60 dollars. It really does deserve your attention.
