Metal Gear Solid V was the least Metal Gear game of the series, here's 10 reasons why
Glad to see the dust is settling with this one Didn't take long I honestly thought it would take another month or so myself.
Because the person that wrote this article speaks for everyone that played this game, right?
Urm...no, never said that Just another article like this to join the others we are slowly seeing on sites such as this one. You know like after Destiny came out or Final Fantasy 13. The dust settles and the we get articles such as this one. Funnily enough it's usually with sites who gave the game a high score in the first place but never mention the faults they talk about in their actual review.
You don't have to say it, it's implied in what you wrote. The person that wrote this article is just stating his opinion. There is no settling of dust. As for the other articles just like this one, don't speak for everyone that played this game. Also, comparing this game with FF13 and Destiny won't win you any arguments. Edit: The dust settles and these kinds of articles are still just one person's opinion that some will agree with and some will disagree with. It's impossible to please everyone. I don't know if this website gave MGS5 a positive review but was the person that reviewed it the same that wrote this article?
"Also, comparing this game with FF13 and Destiny won't win you any arguments" Eh? I never compared the games I compared the situation. Games announce - Hype - Reviews come out which ignore problems - Hype - Game is released - Hype - Articles point out flaws they didn't mention in review - Dust settles - Opinions flourish - Discussions take place - Some die hard fans find it hard to accept - Arguments happen - In the end you are left with a good game but something which failed to meet the hyped up expectations. I would continue but what you've just said there is proof you're grasping at straws. I mean it was pretty obvious I wasn't comparing the games. Come on man, don't be that guy
No matter how much you discuss the game the only thing your left with is your own opinion. Your "situation" is caused by the games so I don't see how you're not comparing the games. I have yet to see someone say that MGS5 is actually a crappy game like I saw countless people say for FF13 and Destiny. That's why your situations (games) aren't comparable.
"Come on man, don't be that guy" …said that guy. There are also articles talking about how great the game is, but this one agrees with you so the dust must be settling… smh
@MysticStrummer Did you not learn on the other article. Stop trying to derail my comments and make it about your obvious "beef" with me. Even though you can't bring yourself to press the block button. It's getting sad man.
"Stop trying to derail my comments and make it about your obvious "beef" with me." Foxtrot I like many of your remarks. Generally, I really do. But you have had a "beef" with this game since I saw your first posts on it. And it isn't just one comment. It is relentless. We get it, you do not like it. The game is done. It may get patched but the game won't really change. Why not spend time doing something positive such as commenting on a game you like or better yet playing one.
Some good points,like #10. I also found weird how Snake won't say anything in some scenes, like after acquiring an important character and they are attacked. He's freaking silent. Sutherland sucks too.
Oh man. DO NOT READ THE ARTICLE UNLESS YOU'VE ALREADY FINISHED THE GAME. It just has a huge, huge spoiler in it. Be kind to those who didn't play the game yet. You should submit these kind of articles with a [SPOILERS] warning at the headline.
TOO LATE! I usally read comments first but didn't this time.
Too late for me as well... Stupid author. MAN I'm pissed.
Jesus guys, there's a warning in the first 2 paragraphs. It's literally the first thing you read
Skipped right to the reasons. My fault entirely.
I take it you guys didn't play Peace Walker? This game is very similar to that one.
As for number 6, no not really. Unless you've scrutinized every trailer that came out before the game then yeah, in that case it would be obvious.
I disagree. I paid zero attention to any media prior to the release of the game and I guessed the spoiler in question 20 minutes into playing. I didn't even play Ground Zeroes until the day Phantom Pain came out, honestly. I had it "spoiled" for me a couple of days after release, reading comments here, and all I could think was "oh OK, I was right" and it wasn't a big deal to me. It is what it is. Personally, I don't really see it as a reason for it being a "bad Metal Gear game" at all and I'm still loving it.
I'm actually glad to see these articles. Goodness knows why some outlets awarded it a complete 10/10. It's a 9 at best due to the gameplay but the story is weak and the ending was horrendous.
As stated before the gameplay in this game is incredibly fine-tuned and balanced to the extreme, but storywise an open world game could never fill the shoes of earlier MGS games. Kojima holding your hand at every turn was always going to provide a more thrilling and engaging adventure than running around freely across the map. Even the inclusion of a fleshed out second chapter and a hypothetical third one still wouldn't hold a candle to a condensed, linear story where every phrase and event is carefully scripted and choreographed to perfection. I enjoyed the game a lot, but after 80 hours (which is a quite some time, I realise) I am done with the game in a way that I will never be done with the previous installments. And that's a shame, really.
It's got great gameplay and I enjoy building an army but it doesn't feel like an MGS game. Would be nice to see more story based DLC but Konami and Kojima are no more so unlikely.
It's a good game. But a bad MGS game.
I don't think there is such a thing as a bad MGS game, but for me MGS2 is still in last place. I just can't decide if this one is tied for first or tied for second on my personal list.
People figured out PT in a day even though Kojima intended for it to unfold throughout months, so of course Kojima is going to hide his easter eggs better and make it harder to find than PT this time. The whole game was designed so it would last. MGO didn't even drop yet, and fools are jumping to bash this game because of the Konami situation and forgot Kojima is a true genius. In Kojima I trust.
Considering the games evolve in mechanics with every iteration, I'd say this is not a bad thing. The game is fantastic. If your want to play the most "Unmetal Gear" Metal Gear, go play Snake's Revenge. That game was sincerely awful. Gameplay wise, The Phantom Pain is in a league of its own and I consider it the best. In terms of story, I would give it to Snake Eater. Honestly, calling this game different is also calling Peacewalker different. The Phantom Pain feels like a fleshed out open world version of that.
only finished act 1 and no where near finishing all side ops and missions so i can only say what i experience so far. boss battles were ok. metal gear zoe edition was pretty fun, skulls were ok. cutscenes and codec. didnt seem like it had enough cutscenes, codec became tapes and that seemed like it was lacking as well unless i am missing loads. characters? i liked them, but it feels like no one had any actual screentime. easter eggs? havent come across any at this moment in time. fist fight? havent finished game yet so lacking a final fist fight seems strange. main villian. skullface? wtf did he do? as i said havent finished game yet so i dont know if some other villians gonna pop out. those are the things i kinda think a metal gear game is. obviously others have differnt opinions
Let's ask the real questions here. How much did Konami pay this guy to shit all over Kojima-san's last game? Hope someone puts this guy on one of those anti-ethics lists
Freaking stupid list just spoiled me a huge plot of the game. Have the decency to not write the freaking spoiler as an actual point in the list or warn people.
The first sentence or two seems a pretty good warning. Lol
When there are spoilers, you make it clear and noticeable. Like a lot of people, I don't care about the intro of articles like that and read about the reasons.
The lack of codec doesn't really bother me, remember rose or whatever her name was in 2? My god that was annoying. I like the cassette system in 5 better myself since I can listen to all that extra stuff (or not) at my leisure.
Only 10? Hah, even the main menu is an issue. Why does it have to look like the one in Ground Zeros? It just feels rushed ;)
I'm really enjoying the game, but it doesn't feel like a MGS title. One thing I really miss is David Hayter's voice. He used to talk a lot in the games and Kiefer's Venom Snake is way too damn quiet. And I can't believe I miss the long cutscenes. I hate the fact that so many main missions don't even have cutscenes. That said, I absolutely love the companian add-on and the base building is really fun, doesn't feel tacked on.
I don't care about Hayter voicing Big Boss, we all know his voiced changed, but MGSV's sucks because he doesn't talk. It doesn't matter if it's Keifer, Hayter or Richard Doyle, if they don't have lines in game it doesn't matter. The voice actor wasn't the problem, it was the direction of the character and the choice to make him a mute. It's so jarring and frustrating to watch characters talk to Boss and he just stands there staring at them.
Love this metal gear it just i like wanted able to come in hot and clean them up anyway you like and be gone. It game of the year that for sure and mp haven't even launch yet. It already get 10/10 just for single player. I watch mp omg it over. It game of the year. No questions maybe fallout will come close but looking at that game that not a master pieace
So ive been up until 3am nearly every day since release. Im savoring the game. Then a moron says 'spoiler alert' UNDER the spoiler heading. What a moron. Ruined experience. https://youtu.be/b1HNOpzsUZ...
I don't think this is can even be debated by long time fans, not to mention it's so glaringly unfinished from a narrative and character standpoint. The open world didn't benefit the game at all.
