Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Review | IGN

Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes is a short but challenging game, and those willing to cast aside conventional expectations will find a lot more here than first glance might suggest. (Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One) 8/10

I'll wait for the launch of pain and get them together, it's been a long time but I'm finally learning to wait and not rush out day one.

It's got me the last tomb raider for free on + and reductions on other games.

Although infamous is too tempting :)

IGN didn't care about the short campaign or lack of depth in Titanfall, and they didn't care about spending $60 and then another $60 to get the rest of the content in Forza5

Why do they suddenly care about value
HammerKong  +   472d ago
now i get,you are angry on ign because they gave good scors to games on xbox ,and buddy 8 is a good score and from other sites this game also does not desserve this score. Forza and titanfall were not 2 hours game,they are still very deep games,forza can still last around 50-30 hours if you want to open all cars and titanfall can last around 80-60 to unlock every thing,so stop trolling,this world does not run on your opinion.
Kivespussi  +   472d ago
He was just giving a few examples. No need to start a fanboy war.
And length of both titanfall and forza is just a matter of taste. I personally don't like playing the same thing for too long (with few exceptions - dark souls, XCOM, TLOU multiplayer to name a few) because I usually think they get repetitive. That's why I don't play that much sport, racing or multiplayer focused games. But that's just me. Some people can play the same thing for hundreds of hours.

I'm buying MGS GZ. But to compare a 2-6 hour experience to games that have much better replay ability is just silly. If you don't like Online shooters you will never experience that replay ability and so to YOU $60 is a lot. But reviews can't review based on taste. The potential is there for TF to last an unlimited # of hours. The same can not be said for MGS GZ
nukeitall  +   472d ago
I will wait for more reviews, but I expect there to be some review bias simply because MGS is a such a huge franchise. When it gets 8 out of 10, it does seem low considering bias.

Will wait, after all the VALUE is ridiculous. This seems to have the content of a DLC and should be no more than $15-20 tops!

If it had a multiplayer mode I would get super addicted to, then it would be well worth even $60!

I fear that it will encourage developers and publishers to do as kojima did like releasing overpriced short game.

Don't be afraid. No one is ever going to buy xblades the prologue, or drake of the 99 dragons prologue. Not every game can get away with this
Magicite  +   472d ago
Gamespot and IGN gives 8/10 while noname sites give 4/10. Interesting!
DC777  +   472d ago
Yeah IGN should be ashamed. An 8 for a game that ppl are speed running through in ten minutes.

You're going to screw us into less content and higher prices in the future.
izumo_lee  +   473d ago
Glad there are some sites out there judging the quality of the game rather than the price of it.

Yeah it sucks that the price of the game is what it is but that shouldn't take away the high quality the game looks. It's not like Kojima & Konami made the game with nothing, it had to cost quite a penny to make it look the way it does. The money to pay for it had to come from somewhere.

If you are a MGS fan people will buy it regardless, if you are a newcomer than the price may make one hesitant. If so might as well wait 2-3 years when Phantom Pain comes out.
sobotz  +   473d ago
They should've made it a free demo (or at least only the main mission), then people will more excited to wait for The Phantom Pain than hating the franchise because of its length.

Theres too much content to just be a demo. I think they should have announced it with an upgrade program for Phantom Pain.

If people knew they were saving money on the main game no one would care they need to pay for this now.
plmkoh  +   473d ago
The game only has a 'main mission'. All the other missions are twists on the same map that have different objectives.

Definitely shouldn't be a demo, the story content here basically wraps up Peace Walker. I guess you could say this is Peace Walker's true ending, since what we got...well yeah if you played it you will know.
izumo_lee  +   473d ago
What i think and like Konami & Kojima should do is that those who buy Ground Zeroes receive a discount when Phantom Pain is released.

It would be a good gesture on their part & maybe convince those who were hesitant to buy it as well. Like Bathyj said there is too much stuff in the game to be regarded as a demo. If it were to be a demo the side missions & half of the main mission be omitted, cause i doubt for a demo Kojima would spoil the ending.

It sucks but it is either play this or wait for Phantom Pain.
_FantasmA_  +   473d ago
15 dollars is the perfect price. For half the price of a full game I should get more than an intro. I don't care how good it is, I will wait til it comes with the Phantom Pain. Although I think they will be stingy and not include it to give us the middle finger.
demonddel  +   473d ago
Moneybags has been deliver
DJ  +   473d ago
Looks like there's 8 to 10 hours of gameplay once you count side missions. I'll get it, but probably when it's a few dollars off.
bluegoblin  +   473d ago
I can't get over snakes. Voice...it takes aeay from the game after so many years...
NihonjinChick  +   473d ago
I wonder why none of these reviews mention the exclusive content. I'm sure people want to know how they are.
GrandpaSnake  +   472d ago
After not playing a metal gear for so long this was such a fresh experience. I got a nice cool drink and sat down. I started to tweak the game to my liking when i ended up at the tapes i just put it on play and started to listen to the tapes. such great voice acting and the great music playing in the background. It really adds to the story of metal gear without hurting it.

So sad. I'm still studying abroad, and my dad won't allow me to bring my PS4 with me because I might not end up studying. I'm definitely gonna miss this game, Phantom Pain, Infamous Second Son, and many more :'(
KING85  +   472d ago
Ahhh it's for your own good :) Unfortunate that you won't be able to play it right away, but getting those good grades will be beneficial in the long run.
jazzlover511  +   472d ago
Of course man! For my own future! It's not that PS5 will be announced in 2 years anyway... or will it? :'(
theDECAY  +   472d ago
You should be out having fun and partying. THAT is what studying abroad is about.
jazzlover511  +   468d ago
Like partying? Nah man, I prefer staying at home, playing or studying.
higgins78  +   472d ago
Oh dear, "solid". Worse than so bad its good - Deadly Premonition, nowhere near great, a bog-standard affair, exactly what PS4/Xbox One DOESN'T need right now.
TheKingWilliamV  +   472d ago
Purchasing this game is like buying a free sample at a food vendor. Just because its MGS doesnt justify charging for what essentially is a game demo. The only way I will purchase this is if they announce buying this knocks $30 off of PHANTOM PAIN.
GasTankKiller  +   472d ago
I'm also hoping in some way there is an additional cost benefit to buying Ground Zeroes.
vikingland1  +   472d ago
8/10 is a good score even for a full game. So this is good to see that the review isn't about length and is about gameplay and quality.
GasTankKiller  +   472d ago
I've been on the fence since Sunday about this game, but after reading this review I'm going to buy this game. Its a decent review.
WitWolfy  +   472d ago
Why buy it now.. Give it a week or 3 and it will be 7 times cheaper in the bargain bin anyways.
GasTankKiller  +   472d ago
I hear yeah but already bought it. It download to my PS4 this morning.
TristanPR77  +   472d ago
"Ground Zeroes at its most visually impressive on the PlayStation 4"

Another multiplatform game that is superior on the PS4. I'm glad I don't have to settle for less, or for 720P.
WitWolfy  +   472d ago
NEXT GEN IS WEIRD!!! Who would've guessed 6 years ago they would start reviewing Demo's???
plaZeHD  +   472d ago
And the fact that we have to buy a fuckin demo.
inf3cted1  +   472d ago
8/10 assuming they got the game for free and dont care if people spend 30$ for the game, or an 8/10 assuming that they care?
tweet75  +   472d ago
really this game should have been a free demo to get MGS fans hyped for phantom pain. Its a good game just sooo short.
