Everyone needs to realize this is not a full game this is just a demo game to show off what Metal Gear Solid V is going to be like. That being said it only has one story mission, definetly not worth buying but this is a must rent for MGS fans.
You can beat all the missions in a day pretty easily. Good to get a feel of the direction the series is going.
It pretty much is a demo, with extra missions to make it longer. But, in the end you're doing all the missions on the same level, and it feels smaller than any of the levels from MGS4.
Some things are missing from classic MGS games if you are a fan of those like me. No more exclamation marks when spotted, or alert countdown. Not as much gun customization from MGS4, or camo system from MGS3 which this game takes place after. I don't think you'll be able to eat animals in the full game either like you could in MGS3.

The story doesn't make a lot of sense, despite some lengthy cut scenes. After you finish the main level, there are some additional cut screnes and then the credits role. It's a bit jarring.
The gameplay is okay. It's not great when you compare it to other stealth games like Hitman Absolution. You can crouch and crawl, but you can't hide in containers or hide bodies in containers. You also can't disguise yourself.
The level design is basically the same map arranged differently for the different levels. This isn't awful, but everything feels very recycled. There's just not much variation.
Although the side ops level unlock when you beat the main story mission and add some extra content, you have to find all of some patches in the main story mission in order to unlock the extra ops, which means you'll have to replay it.
I would pass on this game unless you're a fan of the series or you have nothing else to play on your PS4.
