MGS-V Impressions after Playing the First Chapter

Mike at writes: "Ok, so I'll admit it, I have't been a huge Metal Gear fan in the past. I've played a couple of them, but it wasn't until I played Ground Zeros that I realized that this franchise could be exactly what I've been looking for for a long time! That being said, I lined up at midnight at picked it up at the launch. These are my first impressions of the game. I kept it as spoiler free as possible, but I do talk about the first chapter so if you don't want to know ANYTHING about what happens than you might not want to read further..."

The story is too old to be commented.

I felt there was a little too much crawling in the first chapter.

Whether intentional or not, your comment made me laugh

I think he meant it as a joke because every time you would stand up he would have another reason you had to crawl.

Ummm, you mean the tutorial chapter where you spend 90% on the floor, defenseless?

Yeah, it was striking and cinematic, but guy, that doesn't even give you a hint of what the real game is like. The open-world gameplay is extremely unscripted and totally different than in the intro. Not to say either is bad, but they're just totally different.

The prologue was a true MGS experience though. The main game is stripped of its identity and is pretty much a third person Far Cry.
