Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes feels like an elaborate $34 two to three hour generic third-person shooter. Also, Hideo Kojima’s dreams of an open world stealth title, never really come to fruition in this glorified demo.
Apparently I'm not hardcore enough. I'm still stunned after completing the game that Kojima pulled this off. For me it seems like a home console Peacewalker tech-demo. Can't wait for the full title, but feel ripped-off on this one.
I'm enjoying every min. of it. I'm already 4 or 5 hours into the game and haven't even finished all the special op missions. I agree though that this game will only appeal to hardcore fans. Anyone else will feel as if they have been ripped off.
I'm deep into it and haven't finished yet. I think it has to do with my lack of stealth. Lol. I don't regret the $30 I paid for it. I'm actually surprised by how much I'm enjoying it. Can't wait for the full game. I got it for ps4 and the only issue I've had so far was some crazy skipping on the title screen. Just closed out and it worked fine. Game on!
I still don't understand how they're selling this as an actual game...
Because, the monies.
@pat_11_5: Have you even played it?. Be honest.
I wrote this review; honest.
There's a lot of play time. I bet the grounds zeroes missing in just over an hour. Then each side op takes roughly 30 min and there's 5 or 6. Now there's beating them for the sake of beating them OR doing everything that is actually involved in each mission, which adds double or so gameplay time. There's also completion like finding all the tapes, finding hidden captured allies that are part of each mission that people seem to be ignoring. Then there is the scoring. Sure you can go through it and get an E on each mission but that's terrible. Part of the fun is trying to get an S on HARD on all missions. Mind you I have it on ps3 so I paid $25 for it. So far I'm 9 hours in and JUST unlocked the last op. I'd say my $ spent is justified.
duh Only the real fans will buy this
Uh, no. I bought it and that comment is ridiculous. I'm not "more of a fan" because I bought it. I went back and forth myself, but I ultimately had the money to waste. Now the wait for Friday is significantly easier for me More of a fan... *scoffs*
I don't agree with that generic 3rd person shooter comment at all.
Its coming from someone who does game reviews for a living. Dont trust unestablished sites
Neither do I. It's not even a shooter. Yea sure you CAN shoot people but you most likely will die if you try and play it like a shooter.
I look at it as overpriced dlc and its actually pretty good, however it should be around $10
I am a hardcore fan and have almost 10 hours in and I have only completed one objective on this first mission. If you play this game in 25 minutes and think it's a demo you are doing it wrong casul.
sheesh im assuming you raided all of the armories and found the patches. and tpp is going to be 200 times the size.... send me into a coma like boss :(
Found 2 patches and 1 armory so far. I've spent most of my time experimenting with guards, weapons, and learning how to navigate environment with the new controls/UI.
Haha!! I just saw that this guy was the same one that didn't like Dark Souls either. I would bet you $1000 that this casul loves Titanfall.
Nothing wrong with liking Titanfall just like there is nothing wrong with liking zeroes.
I agree, but I bet it is a fact.
I played for a total of 4 hours just messing around and experiencing shit. After I finally beat the main mission, the menu only said 10% complete. unlocks like 5 or 6 missions, and there are challenges. and then there is always the stats tracker you can follow to try and beat your personal best. considering all the media and drama about this "glorified demo" I'm actually finding it rather fun and enjoyable. I got it on PS4 and already uploaded a few videos to my facebook. looks nice, runs smooth. yeah, it may be short. but there are so many different things to do.
I got it on ps3. It looks great. I want to play it in ps4 to avoid the damn frame drops lol
Played it, beat it, disappointed. I beat every metal gear solid game including the hand helds (yes even metal gear acid). I was reluctant to buy it but I did to support kojima but now I feel ripped off. Beat it in a few hours and I agree it felt like a demo
Did you get S on hard on all missions and find all the tapes and complete all challenges? If not you didn't "beat" it. Completing a narrative doesn't mean you beat it.
Um...for a story based game, that's EXACTLY what completing the narrative means; you've beat the game.
I will pass. Waiting for MGS V: Phantom Pain and besides there are other games I'm more interested in atm.
So many people calling it a demo, yet, judging it as a complete game... I'm just disapointed to see so much fellow so-called "gamers" who don't understand at all what was the point of this release.
