This isn't a game, it's a DEMO

I knew it was going to be short, but really?? An hour's worth of game play! DO NOT BUY THIS GAME....how they could even charge 30.00 is beyond me... should have been a 5.00 download demo. What a joke. As for the graphics, game-play, lighting, AI, etc. All superb and genuinely gives you a glimpse of what is possible for the next gen games, but how dare Konami try and pass this off as an actual game. The 4 bar rating is based on how impressive the game looks and plays.....but I am dinging this game/company for such a poor business decision to not release it as a demo.

Amazing but so short it feels like a demo

This game is amazing and gives a nice distraction while we wait for phantom pain. The problem is the main mission can be completed in five minutes. there are other side missions but not enough to justify buying it. Honestly its over so quick and stands well on its own that it feels like this is the demo they were going to release and decided to do a cash grab asking almost full price initially for it.

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.

pros:
-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

cons:
-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.
