Gamekult review: Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain

MGS V floors the world during its first hours thanks to solid technique and balanced, smooth gameplay. Then excitement falls back as the repetitive missions and narrative pacing put the player's patience to the test.
It must be said that in practice, there proves to be a gap between MGS V and the finest open worlds crafted in the West.
The series' latest feels like a first try, rather than the masterstrokes we've been used to from Kojima.
Recycling the same effects to the point of absurdity, The Phantom Pain is likely not the apotheosis awaited by fans, but it remains a game of great authenticity, with an identity all its own, and which looks like no other.

GameKult is notorious for putting up a reduced 7 and bekow on many 10/10 titles. Nothing new.

MGS5 is a good game, but it doesn't deserve a better note. And don't get me wrong, i hate Gamekult! Really! But, from time to time, i may agree with them.

MGS5 is the most overhyped game of the century so far.

Saithraphim2583d ago

There hasn't been an over hyped game thus far that didn't get crushed by the majority reviews in some way or another. If some of the most reputable sites are giving this game 9's and 10's then im thinking this might be a BS attempt for a little attention

Interesting, maybe some reasoning might help your comment.
I completely disagree, even though I have liked most Metal Gear Solids I was not overly excited for the Phantom Pain, maybe because I didn't really know what to expect. I've been thoroughly impressed, it's a great take open world gaming yet somehow manages to weave Metal Gears story and atmosphere across all parts. The more I play and the more I unlock the more I want to carry on.

There will always be people who don't like things many others do and that's why opinions are different.

It's also the reason that any game review done by any respectable site is averaged out from at least two different reviewers, this way you can get a better overall feel of what it's like from different views.

I must say the only things that holds me back from picking this game up is the controls, I've always felt uncomfortable with the way MGS controls but it may just be me, and how much I sucked at Ground Zeroes. It looks great, and watching people who know what they're doing always piqued my interest, I can certainly see why it merits the praise, even if it's not my cup of tea

MGS5 is the most overhyped game of the century?

Destiny, Titanfall, and Watch Dogs says hi!

at first I thought you were a troll, but then I remembered that this game came out for nearly all platforms.

So...I am guessing your not a fan?

Trolls exist outside of the console wars. Most of his comments are negative. I remember him hating on MGSV way before release so he probably hasn't played the game.
