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.

First off, sgt077 has no idea what he's talking about. Metal Gear is decades older than splinter cell. Big boss has also been a playable character in MGS3, and PW, so no, he's not a ripoff of Sam Fisher. Now that the problem is out of the way, I can tell the positives of this game. First, this is a great showing of kojima's new graphics engine, FOX engine.This is also a great representation of MGS going free roam and of what's to come in The Phantom Pain. Although it is short, I've put at least 10+ hrs into this game and I'm still not finished. If you're hating this game because of the length or sgt077, shame on you. You should judge this game based on quality over quantity.

Really Bad

Metal Gear Solid 5= 1 level

I seriously thought it was a joke....... 1 Freaking level. The credits took longer than the level. Kiefer southerland must have recorded his voice for about three minutes. Kind of a joke. Not worth your time. I am a huge Metal gear fan, but this was in poor taste. Also the camera angles are wonky. Aiming is poor. Enemy AI is very high, response time is high, and there are unlimited enemies, which no one likes anymore.
