I have seen people complain about the introduction, saying its confusing.. No shit, enjoy it for what it is!

The review is basically accurate and describes the 9.5 - 10 game that Phantom Pain is, but then you get a score where 2 whole points are knocked off for the intro and the stalled online component. I don't think I need to explain to anyone who's played this why this review is a fail whale.

It's well written but I don't agree with the score. Knocking off points for online making the game slower seems nit picky to me.

The online doesnt even have to be in it for all i care and its still a 10 to me.. Look, NO GAME is perfect but this is as good as it gets for a multiplat game. MASSIVE content, MASSiVE world, great gameplay, great visuals, and if you want a more in depth story, listen to the tapes. I love this game even though its got things like the credits rolling for a looong time and theres not as much cutscenes as before but like i said NO GAME is perfect. This is as good as it gets. Its an open world stealth game people! It uses its own engine, built from the ground up in Kojimas hands.. I think its as a solid of a 10 as your going to see from 3rd party.. Look at the witcher. How many updates did it need before it ran good? How many GIGS did it take to install it? This only uses 27 lmao! Kojima did a perfect job capturing the 80s vibe too.. But everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

This is the first reviewer to have balls to give a real score to this weak game. The story is a mess, not a shooter to take seriously, it has a lot of japonese craziness like ghosts, monsters, robots and woman fighter in bikini. The gameplay is bad, the Big Boss moves like a robot, and the map has a lot of invisible walls. The scenery looks all the same, and the maps lacks of women and civilians, just have soldiers. It looks like an empty world, only habited with men soldiers.

Yes because in Russia occupied Afghanistan and guerrilla controlled Africa you're supposed to see little Jimmy boy being taken to school by his dear mother.

Scatpants1164d ago

You are aware that other types of humans than soldiers live in Africa and Afganistan, right?

You can't argue with Kojima cult members, 10/10 or die by having a bomb shoved up your ass.

It's not as if any of the existing open world games offer a real and comprehensive depiction of the an existing place . The closest we got are stuff like GTA , where you still dont see stuff like kids among the regular npcs ...

They all remain fantasy and compromise for the sake of their gameplay or whatever story they wanna tell .

Seems to me like something that can be nitpicked about in most of them , but you only notice because you don't like the game
