1. Amazing graphics.
The Metal Gear games all have good graphics, but this one blows them all away.
2. Good voice acting.
I was skeptical about Kiefer Sutherland voicing Snake(Big Boss) but he did an amazing job, he even surpassed David Hayter In my opinion.
3. Realistic gameplay.
This is the first Metal Gear that actually felt real when it comes to the gameplay.
4. Amazing characters.
It's no secret that Kojima can present some of the best characters in video games, and this game is no exception.
5.High replay value.
This is a game that I honestly wanted to play over and over again(I've beaten it twelve times).
6.Decent open world.
Metal Gear has never had an open world until this game.
Now The Cons:
1.The story is too short.
Now I know this is supposed to be an opening for The Phantom Pain, but the story is literally a half hour long at best so it feels kind of like a cash grab.
2. The Deja Vu mission.
Only good thing about the Deja Vu mission is the nostalgia and the costumes you earn after the quiz, other than that it's really boring.
3. The soundtrack.
Metal Gear has always had an amazing soundtrack, that's not the case for this one, Ground Zeroes has a boring and forgettable soundtrack(with the exception of "Here's To You").
Overall an amazing game that got me hyped for Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain. It is worth a rent or buying it for $10 though because of how short it is.

It's great to get back into action in a Metal Gear game, but I would be super ticked off if I had paid $29.99 for this. It takes less than two hours to get through it, and it's nothing special over the old metal gear games. I'm not sure if this was some type of money grab as maybe Kojima needed more money to finish Metal Gear 5 or what...
While it looks good, and plays well, it's not worth anything. I'd probably still been upset paying $4.99 for this...
