This is pretty much a short demo of The Phantom Pain which has yet to have its release date announced, the entire game takes place in one area (Camp Xray). The game length varies on how you decide to navigate the area and play the game. If you are a fan of stealth games you'll enjoy this, if you are expecting a lengthy action game then you'll be disappointed.
-looks great on the PS4, lighting in particular is gorgeous
-nice stealth gameplay, you can steal enemy vehicles and attempt to blend in and make your way deeper into the camp undetected
-the AI is smart, soldiers will inspect damaged cameras and lights, gunshots and other noises, or any unattended vehicles that are on the road
-there are 5-6 'sideops' available, these are unique missions that all take place within Camp Xray that have different objectives and times of day
-the game is short, this is not a full 60 dollar game, which is why its priced at $29.99. Again this is just a sample of what we'll get in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
-I'm not a fan of graphic gory cutscenes, I won't describe it because of spoilers. To those of you wondering if you should let your child or younger sibling play this keep in mind that the game is M-rated for a reason.
Personally I don't mind the length of the game, I really enjoy stealth games like this which is why I bought it. But its also a good game to rent if you just need something to play while you're waiting for Infamous: Second Son to come out in the next few days
Overall I would say buy it if you're a fan of stealth games, the AI is really fun to toy with.

If you are a platinum trophy hunter then ignore this game.
13 - Bronze, 1 - Silver, 1 Gold.
If you are like to explore, find stuff, strategy, long store, good action then ignore this game.
This game about 1 hour gameplay and had only 1 mission.
So don't buy it, rent it if you don't have any game to play.
If you buy it you are totally ripped off by KONAMI.
