Game Informer | 'Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain' Review


Metal Gear is a member of video gaming’s old guard. It has been consistently popular since its inception in the ‘80s, which is a rare distinction it shares with revered names like Mario and Zelda.

Konami can suck it. In the end Kojima got the last laugh.

Yup. Feels like the devs/publisher has something to hide when they don't allow reviews until the day before, or worse, day of release. Like they want to cash in on all the people who bought into the prerelease hype, and are gonna purchase day 1 no matter what. I've been a victim of this a few times, lol and have already preordered mgs5, so seeing these do make me feel better

We love Metal Gear, and it's not difficult to imagine how awesome Silent Hills could it be.
