Very Flexible Annd Thrilling Game

This game quite pleasantly surprised me, I had not been a hardcore fan of the previous metal gear solid games. The difference between this title and the other metal gear solid games to me anyway is the gameplay feels much more flexible, you don't feel forced to be stealthy and the story line is very captivating compared to the others, all in all 10/10 on my list definitely worth a look.

It seems much of the internet hates on this game because of the length, but with a small amount of reading comprehension the length should come at no surprise. The game is advertised as the "prologue" to metal gear solid: The Phantom Pain, which of course means it is not a full game. With the $30 physical price tag ($20 digital) , if you expected a full game then that is simply an error in basic cognitive ability. That being said, I have already invested more time into this game than many "full priced" games. Yes, there is only one level to explore, yes you can beat the "campaign" in less than 2 hours, however, yes this is an awesome interactive sandbox and yes this is a must own for any metal gear fan. Those new to metal gear should most likely not start with this game, It is a continuation of peace walker and has hours worth of snip-it recordings and references to PEACE WALKER.
In summation:
-Pros: -Hours of fun metal gear game-play packed into an affordable prologue
-Continuation of peace walker's story
- Prepares you emotionally, psychologically, and physically for the experience that will be The Phantom pain
- Tight game play mechanics and reactive/responsive A.I
- Open world...
Cons: -Some minor graphical hiccups for those who find that sort of thing appealing (I do not care about those details, so this is not reflected in my score)
- Having to wait a year or so for Phantom Pain
- Having to wait a year or so for Phantom Pain
- This is not the phantom pain.

We all know its short, but that doesn't change the fact that it is a great game, i'm happy to have spent my money on this, why? because this isn't suppose to be a full game, it's suppose to be a taste, and the money will go to making Phantom Pain even better, i loved the new mechanics, smooth combat, vehicles, and all the new stuff, and it makes me excited for Phantom Pain
