Metal Gear Solid V is this year's Far Cry

No don't even go there. MGSV is very much its own entity unlike anything else

I would totally say it is a mix of far cry and splinter cell. It's really awesome until supernatural stuff shows up and I'm like wtf... Once I get past that crap it's awesome and fun again.

You guys are crazy, this game has a ton in common with farcry 4.

@ XBLSkull

I came here to say something about how the author doesn't seem to have played Peace Walker or MGS3 and how the open world nature of the game doesn't make Far Cry the same as MGS and how MGS4 had different stealth and firefight options in its open levels, but then I read your comment...

Splinter Cell? Supernatural crap? Jesus. It's Metal Gear, dude.
I don't think you've played MGS games before.

I agree with you XBLSkull. Some of the MGS heads are crazy to think far cry has nothing in common with mgs5. Mgs5 has a lot of elements from other games as well. They're just being ridiculous, a common occurrence on this site given all the fanboys.

I've been saying this since release. I'd take back the MGS4 style of play, story telling and cut scenes over MGSV. V just don't feel like a MGS game anymore after the prologue. It's lost it's identity. I like the game but it's not the MGS I've come to love over the past 17 years.

Far Cry can only improve from this comparison/affiliation. I played MGSV 1st on PS4 for about 50 hours with 17% completion and I just couldn't take it anymore...I had to play it on PC and so I got it again and I don't even know how many hours I have put into the game and I still love it. This is coming from a hard core fan and player of MGS1, 2 & 4 (my favorite). This game is gold, Far Cry is 100 years too early to be on the same level as MGS.

Timesplitter141133d ago

there are some similarities in the way the open world is designed but MGS5 plays very differently. MGS5 still fascinates me after 60 hours, FC4 barely held my attention for 4 hours

Far cry is nothing like mgs v

xwilldemise1133d ago

You MGS heads aré crazy. I'm a huge MGS fan & agree that MGS is in its own league but even I kno a game like Metal Gear can borrow elements or be inspired by other games. I definetely see a little bit of Far Cry in MGSV & is that a bad thing? Of course not. Next you guys will tell me roaming around with D Horse doesn't remind you of Red Dead Redemption & then there's the reflex mode aswell. Lol

I'm not a huge Metal Gear fan (or many stealth games for that matter) but I love the game.

I'm not worried about S Ranking everything (designed more towards diehard MG fans and stealth lovers imo) but it's fun as I can do it how I want and still have a blast even more than other MG games actually. Plus I can replay missions when I want to try it more "like Metal Gear" is meant to be played which is nice for more casual MG/stealth fans such as myself.

The overall design allows non-MG fans immense enjoyment while still catering towards the fans of the older games. Your more standard open world shooter fans for example (FC fans) can get sucked in just as much as the franchises original audience. It's sort of why it's gotten such great reviews as it caters to a huge audience while being so well done on so many different levels.

If it wins GOTY it would basically surprise no one. It won't be for everyone still but it's just so much more than "just Metal Gear" now (from non MG fans' perspective). It's very much still itself but even bigger and better in so many ways.

well damn, maybe I'll try and finish Farcry first before I pick this up then. FC4 is great, but its so huge that I just sort of abandoned it.
