Is Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes worth £30? – opinion

Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes is a tricky one to peg down. Is is a prologue or demo, and is it actually worth £30 on PS4 & Xbox One? Gamers have asked Dave Cook many questions about Kojima’s latest this week. Here are the answers.

I pre-ordered mine from Gamestop, so it's only costing me £19.97. At that price it's worth it for me.

Eamon2304d ago

ironically that costs more than $30

and most places are selling for £25-30!

die_fiend2304d ago

How is that ironic? It's $40 for the next gen one isn't it?

Amazon US is selling PS4 GZ for $30

Patrick_pk442304d ago

@die_fiend Nope, Kojima lowered it to $30. Either way I am buying it for next-gen and using a $10 discount that came with my PS4.

philm872304d ago

Yeah I got mine from Gamestop for that price also. I think it's worth it at that price (not that I've played it yet), especially considering Phantom Pain is going to be ridiculously big and will balance out the value.

I've played a few hours of it. I've been messing around a lot. My only concern is how much it feels like Splinter Cell: Conviction. Now, Conviction is a phenomenal game. However, this doesn't feel like Metal Gear to me. If you want it to be, it can be a straight-up 3rd person shooter. That's just not right. I understand Kojima and Konami wanting to gain a larger audience, but I'm not sure I'll stay onboard for more. Also, Kiefer...

As for the gameplay: it's been like that since MGS3. With Splinter-Cell, especially Conviction, the gameplay flat-out devolved from stealth to action. At least in this game, and MGS3 onward can be argued you can run through the whole game in a stealth-like fashion if you wanted to without the experience feeling artificially-different.

Kiefer, yeah. Very questionable choice. Kiefer should've voiced Sam instead TBQH. At least in games like Blacklist it would've made sense.

Yeah keifer does not do it for me. it just does not fit snake (big boss) especially after peace walker.

Patrick_pk442304d ago

Gameplay is the same as Metal Gear Solid 3. You can easily run and gun or just stealth through it. It feels like Splinter Cell because of the upgrade in terms of technology and gameplay mechanics, I don't really see a problem with that. Kiefer was just a poor choice, I don't understand what Kojima was thinking when he voice casted him. I would prefer it if the voice was a bit more deeper, or David came back.

If they included the old MGS games that doesnt take up much space on a disk I would. It would be great for people who never played MGS.

RosweeSon2304d ago

Yeah why not try shopping around.
