Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan has brought a new edge to the Cold War, and in 1984, a one-eyed man with a prosthetic arm appears in the country. Those who know him call him Snake; the legendary mercenary who was once swept from the stage of history and left in a coma by American private intelligence network Cipher. Snake is accompanied by Ocelot, an old friend who saved him from attack when he finally awoke.
Now, Snake's former partner Kazuhira Miller is being held by the Soviet forces in Afghanistan. Snake must undertake a solo mission to rescue Miller and prove to the world that the legendary mercenary is not dead and gone. That first step will lead to a path of vengeance against the very Cipher that slaughtered so many of Snake's men, and to a battle that will embroil the whole world...
What started in Ground Zeroes must finish with "V".

This is not only the best gameplay in the Metal Gear Solid series, but IMO the best gameplay in the stealth genre ever.
One of the things that makes this game so great is the many tools that you can use to complete your mission. It allows for complex techniques and strategies that are easy to figure out but very rewarding when executed to perfection. Some of them involving your "buddies", which are companions that you can take on mission with you that provide various types of support that all have their merits, though Quiet is the best IMO. The boss fights also feel better than ever because they take place on such a scale that wasn't really possible before.
Further more, there is TONS of content. It took me 107 hours just to complete the main story. Now, I did take my time, but this game is substantial, and I still have plenty left to do.
It is also, one of the absolute best technical achievements on PS4 as well. It not only looks gorgeous, with some of the best lighting and effects on PS4, but it somehow manages to be native 1080p and 60 fps at the same time, WITH ZERO DROPS!!! That is something that has not been achieved on PS4, or at least not with a game of this massive scale. Because of this, the controls are incredibly tight and responsive which allows you to be connected to the game almost seemlessly
the hallmark of the Metal Gear Solid series is the story, and this one doesn't disappoint. It is as entertaining as it is intriguing with a familiar tale of espionage, corruption, and the threat of world domination but it is done so at a very interesting time in the series overall story arch.
Another hallmark of the series is its characters, and this is another way MGS 5 shines. Returning characters are better than ever, you really learn more about them than in previous and the new characters are amazing. Especially Quiet, who has quickly become one of my favorite characters in the series.
The way the game is presented is excellent although very different. Sadly, no more codec calls, but there is an extensive library of cassette tapes you are giving that basically replace the codec calls, and you can listen to them at basically any time.
Cutscenes are definitely better than ever as well. Kojima is basically at his directing peak. He's never been better at presenting action packed cutscenes and it really shows. Voice acting is excellent, although the exclusion of David Hayter is mind bogglingly stupid, otherwise the voice acting is excellent, as is the soundtrack. Metal Gear Solid has always had great soundtracks and this is one of the best IMO
There are some negatives and some things that aren't really negatives but are just different. For one is the fact that its open world. This is part of the reason the game can take SO MUCH LONGER to complete than any other game in the series. If you know what you're doing, of course, you can speedrun missions in mere minutes, however, if you want to take your time and do things the right way on your first playthrough, it takes a lot of time. I think this is actually a positive, although I also did love the linearity of the previous games in the series.
The biggest negatives are probably the story and the lack of David Hayter as Snake. Now, like I mentioned before, the story is EXCELLENT and entertaining, but, compared to the stories of MGS 1, 3, and 4, I think it's just not nearly as incredible as those are. It's still FAR better than the stories in most video games, and better than the story in Peace Walker, it's just not as mind blowing and memorable as MGS 1,3,or 4. Another issue of the story is that one major thread was left unfinished. I won't spoil it, but it seems like Konami forced Kojima to finish the game before it was done.
David hayter is just too iconic of a voice to replace. I'm actually a big fan of Kiefer Sutherland, and a HUGE FAN of 24, but it wouldn't matter what actor they picked, you just can't replace David Hayter. No one sounds like him. HE IS SNAKE. Without his voice, it just doesn't feel like snake to me.
But in the end, these negatives are COMPLETELY overshadowed by what an incredible game this is. I can't stress enough how good this game is, and how much better it is than any other game that has come out on PS4. Which says a lot because 2015 was an amazing year for games, and PS4 has got a lot of brilliant games so far, but MGS 5 frankly takes a steaming crap over all of them, and I wouldn't be too surprised if it doesn't get topped.
What's really remarkable about the game is all these independently operating, finely polished gameplay elements. The more elements you come to understand, the more mastery you have over the game world, and the more creative you can be with your missions.
And your enemies adapt to your tactics, incentivizing you to change it up. For example, if you go a few missions head shotting with the tranquilizer pistol, enemies will start to wear helmets. But you can also send your combat teams on missions to destroy shipments of enemy helmets, reducing their ability to field them. Every little corner of the world goes deep. This game is easy to learn, but hard to master.
For those of you who like a frame of reference, it's kind of a super Peace Walker meets Far Cry 3, with a hefty dose of original Kojima- designed magic.
The Phantom Pain is easily the best game of the year, and I highly recommend it.
The gameplay that is here though, is amazing. You make your own story. You have objectives, and fulfill them however you want. I have to assassinate three generals in one mission. Whereas one option would be to get into a full on fire fight with them as they are heading towards their meeting, I chose to place C4 on the route that one of their cars passed by, blowing the car to bits, ran across the map, took out the 2nd general with a sniper, and then ran through a sand storm and creeped up to the office, where the 3rd general was freaking out as to what had happened to the other, and took him out right there. That level of flexibility lets you create your own story, and the game is truly unique in how much flexibility it gives you in this respect.
This is a great game, but will appeal more to those who like open world, play-as-I-want gamers, rather than those who like a linear, story driven narrative. Still, I highly recommend it!
