Any fan of Metal Gear Solid will love this demo/game to prepare them for MGS 5 proper---my only gripe about this game/demo is that it is super thick on exposition. The story is starting to get in the way of good ol' fashion gameplay. Let me play it, Konami! The assault on Mother Base; I should have been able to play at least a little of it! I enjoyed the CQC beat-down button and the REFLEXmode, great additions to Snake's skillset! Big set piece action scenes were a little CALLofDUTY-ish but let us play it, Kojima...Big Boss is a certifiable bad-you-know-what and I wanted to partake in that bad-assery! Other than that, it runs butter smooth on the PS4 and all the graphical bells and whistles are present and accounted for! All in all I give it a 'solid' 8.5 close to 9-- Can't wait for the PHANTOM PAIN...

Just like everyone else says, this game is short. I played it for an hour and a half, packed it back up and sent it out in the AM. I did not care to do the extra missions since I was pretty much dissatisfied with how short it was, even though I knew it was going to be short going in. Don't waste your time and money buying this one at full price, either rent it or ebay for like $5 since that's all its really worth gameplay-wise.
