    Great game, but not as good on the 360

    Exactly as it says. It's a hard-as-nails open-world stealth game full of cardboard boxes, words that kill, and scantily-dressed women who will make you ashamed for your words and actions. You know, typical Kojima stuff. Ordinarily, this would garner a 10/10 on any other review. My few complaints are that the game, while certainly playable on the Xbox 360, most likely plays better on a higher-end console/PC (I only bought it on a 360 because I don't have a One and my laptop doesn't have a compatible graphics card). Also, it has been confirmed that there are several microtransactions scattered throughout the game, which aren't a deal-breaker if it weren't for the fact that Konami's servers for Xbox are nonexistent and, honestly, the game didn't need microtransactions in the first place. But if you can put all that aside, it's an excellent game to bookend Kojima's final Metal Gear game, as well as Konami's last chance to make money before their unholy pachinko-mobile-casino slots trinity of money-printing plans backfires in their face.

    The Phantom Pain

    The "final" chapter of one of the greatest series has been out for a couple of months now and it does not disappoint. Very long considering that there are side missions to do which does kill alot of time and beautiful graphics. From my experience of playing all of the previous titles, this will not be my most favorite installment. You'll have fun playing and exploring more of the characters background. Online to me is not the same compared to the MGS4 version(now that was amazing) it feels different and lacks in my opinion. I havent really bothered with the base hi-jack mode where you invade anothers own base. Wish they would have had a unique boss unit like the previous games, The mist unit just wasnt satisfying for me though, Cobra Unit was great so were the Infamous Foxhound. Overall the game is a masterpiece just without the famous snake voice.

    The Phantom Pain is the kind of game I thought would never exist - one where every minute gameplay detail has true purpose. Its lack of story focus is sure to be divisive for the Metal Gear faithful, but the resulting emphasis on my story, my tales of Espionage Action, easily make it my favorite in the series. There have certainly been sandbox action games that have given me a bigger world to roam, or more little icons to chase on my minimap, but none have pushed me to plan, adapt, and improvise the way this one does. Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain doesn’t just respect my intelligence as a player, it expects it of me, putting it in a league that few others occupy.

    This game will go down as a MGS classic!!! Free roam in a huge environment and infiltrate enemy bases of your choice rescuing prisoners while shooting/blowing your way through it all while having a sidekick with you while you build up your own base by finding soldiers in the field and stealing resources and weapons from the enemy. This MGS is different from the others. I put this one overall below MGS1 and about the same as MGS3. Story line and boss fights not as good as MGS1 or MGS3 I would give it 4 1/4 stars there. But the weapons,tactical action,gameplay,fun factor,controls,graphics are all 5 stars and is better than MGS1 or MGS3 in some of these categories. For the first time in MGS it's fun to get seen by the enemies. Highly recommend!!!

    Xbox 360's swan song

    Hideo Kojima's last game in the Metal Gear Solid series — even if Konami was too hard-headed to keep his name on the box — is his most grandiose yet. After the rollercoaster ride of a prologue, you're dropped into a massive countryside to explore, sneak through and claim for yourself. The graphics are fantastic. I don't know how the Fox Engine squeezed magic out of his ancient hardware, but it's impressive. Metal Gear Solid 5, while not a system exclusive, is a great swan song for the Xbox 360.

    This game is great. Every Metal Gear Solid game offers something new, and packs some mind twisting story lines that has fans playing for hours and The Phantom Pain is no different. No longer will you spend hours listening to your codec. It's all done through a radio that is integrated into regular play. The stories experience has a very different feel to it when being compared to the other Metal Gear games, as well as the game play. Everything has been brought up to par with new game standards.

    Awesome game with great action. Probably the best in the series. Would recommend getting Metal Gear Solid 5 Ground Zeroes and play that before to get you up to date on the story and get some decent extras that you can upload right to the Phantom Pain from the main menu, Ground Zeroes is also very short but well worth it. Both are excellent.

    This game is awesome. I don't know where to begin. The game play open world and you can approach missions in a number of ways. Stealth, all out guns a blazing, backup support. Graphics are good as well, and the soundtrack is great. A little disappointed that the missions tend to repeat at the end and the ending leaves a lot left out. Oh yeah, the weapon customizations are almost endless. Great weapons as well. Get this game!

    Fun open world stealth-action game with a great story. Note: Mandatory hard drive installation is required in order to play this game on the Xbox 360. Cannot be installed to a USB flash drive. Make sure you or the person you're buying the game for has a non-arcade model Xbox 360 with a hard disk drive and at least 4GB of free space before ordering.

    Final Metal Gear

    This is the last real Metal Gear game. Metal Gear Survive is a joke, so pick this up while you can. The Phantom Pain is arguably the best Metal Gear yet. It grabs the best ideas, themes, and mechanics from the previous entries, and combines them into one amazing masterpiece. You will not be disappointed.

    Best Metal Gear Solid game of all time!

    This game is absolutely amazing! Definitely lives up to the hype. First off, if you like "Open World/Sandbox" games like Fallout 3/NV/4, ElderScrolls, Far Cry or Just Cause and GTA, but also love the freedom to develop/customize your own realistic weapons sort of like CoD than this is for you :').

    It is amazing how this genre from Metal Gear keeps getting better and better. The graphics are like playing a role in a high-end action movie. This one will take some time to complete and does not appear to be a partial production regarding game length. I have already put in 12 hours on this one.

    This game is definitely my pick of game of the year. I bought it on ALL platforms and the amount of content you get in this game and the scale of overwhelmingly great. Familiar with the series or not it is still a must own and very easy to pick up and play. MUST BUY!

    If you are a fan of MGS, there's really no need to read more reviews. You will like the game. I wouldn't say this is the best in the series, but the game is good. I enjoyed the "preview" 1st mission before buying this, but I totally recommend playing this.

    The story mode is fun and challenging to play with it. I am really enjoy it with my friends with this game. It requires strong skills to play with it. I also own the ps3 one. there is not much difference in term of contents. I will just keep one copy. lol

    Metal Gear Solid V is a great game that follows in the footsteps of its predecessors in terms of gameplay. The story, though weak at points, holds up in line with the other game. I recommend it for any Metal Gear fan.

    I've played through this on Xbox One and now on 360 because I was writing an article comparing the differences. The 360 version holds up remarkably well. It looks great. It's just hard playing on the sluggish 360 and the long load times.

    I played the last gen version on my PS3 and it plays wonderfully but the 360 version requires a hard drive to install. This was a gift so the person that got it had to give it to someone else as they did not have a hard drive.

    This is the last Metal Gear Solid game from Kojima but he went out on a high note with innovative gameplay! Although consoles have moved on to next gen, this release still looks excellent (albeit with slightly longer load times)
