Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain gameplay video takes a different approach

You may recall a lengthy Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain gameplay demo rolled out during E3 last month. It's hard to convey the series' focus on freedom in a single playthrough, though, so Hideo Kojima has released another video of the same mission, played out in a different way. Don't worry though: there are still horses and cardboard boxes.

I didn't think I would ever say this but.... MGSPP is a little to ridiculous with that bionic arm lol. thats just crazy. There must be a lot of pain and despair in this installment because it seems kojima wanted to balance that out with quirky and ridiculous ways to finish a mission. Less then 2 months away! Can't freakin wait!

Neat trick with the sleep grenade.

Man, the textures in the Menu vs the actual gameplay are drastically different. The non gameplay textures are outstanding. Still impressive though.

Edit: before anyone starts. No I'm not bashing the game. The in game textures look great, especially considering the engine has to render more than the inside of a chopper. It's just that the transition caught me off guard with Snakes textures. Great looking game.

Would look better if it was just on PC as it could handle better textures AND keep the 60 FPS.

However this game wouldn't even exist if it wasn't on consoles.... So go figure

Please tell me that's not Playstation 4 gameplay....

Ripsta7th3071d ago

Man i wish i could play these games but i suck :(
I wasnt even able to beat the first mission on ground zeroes
On MGS4 i got a little further but still, stealth games are too hard for me

Now we'll have to see how much the Master Collection will add to those numbers.

Too bad it was a lazy release. They could've updated the visuals and everything. Missed opportunity.

Stanjara32d ago

...and yet, they couldn't give more respect and effort into the collection.
What a terrible company.

Minute Man 72132d ago (Edited 32d ago )

Are they counting every game?

Edit: they did

Nyxus32d ago

Yes, these are total lifetime sales of the entire series.

ApocalypseShadow32d ago

.... mostly with the help of PlayStation.

Yea I don’t get why they’re allowing old reviews to be posted here. Someone did one on Soul Reaver and I got so excited thinking there was some stealth release of an HD Remaster, but no… it’s just someone who had a slow day posted an old review…

Cacabunga48d ago

I liked the game but for me it felt somehow like a military simulator rather than a proper MGS.. i got bored of that

micdagoat1948d ago

I do wish they would remaster all the soul reavers

micdagoat1948d ago

it was done this morning though

goldwyncq48d ago

The author was in a coma for 9 years and didn't get to play the game when it released.

Chocoburger48d ago

This review arrived just in time for launch. Perfect timing!

Amazing how bad this game looks already. We keep acting like this gen doesn't feel like an update but I think we're starting to see it.

YourMommySpoils48d ago

Looks better than Starfield, Cyberpunk and most recent games out. Still fine.

RupeeHoarder48d ago

It most certainly does not lol.

andy8548d ago

Have you player Cyberpunk since the first day? It's absolutely stunning now
