I played the old MGS games for the original Playstation and loved the story line and the game sequence, however, with this new game there isn't really a story line or sequence of events. It's single missions that comprise the "story". Unless I have been playing it in the wrong mode I would DEFINITELY (if I could underline and bold that, I would) not recommend it to an original MGS fan.

I don't know if it was me or what But the weapons was not cool at all..when close to wall or edge you can't shoot. at least I couldn't. Not to much more can I say as I didn't get a chance to play, but I found it view and movement control so out of the normal of set up. so not what I remember. use to be my fav game on Xbox.

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.
