VGChartz's Joseph Trotter: "MGSV can be recommended depending on your previous experience of Metal Gear. Series veterans will love this, but newcomers may find the experience inaccessible and daunting. Everyone else can appreciate MGSV for what it is; an evolution for Metal Gear Solid but a revolution in what ought to be expected of a stealth action/adventure game. Ambitious and haughty, it is hamstrung by a nonsensical plot and accessibility issues, but these do not impact this simple truth: MGSV is a high-point for this generation of consoles, and probably the best stealth game ever. Inventive and beautiful, even its clear flaws cannot take away from what is simply a brilliant game."
