CeX Review- Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Jonny Naylor writes- I was excited about The Phantom Pain. It filled the void until Fallout 4’s release. Perhaps I’m about to put my foot in my mouth by saying that I’m not a die-hard Metal Gear fan. I played the first Metal Gear Solid, but that was at least ten years ago, and I know the story well enough to know that to trust an ally is folly, but I’m not well versed in the gameplay and style of Kojima’s masterpiece, and maybe that’s why I didn’t enjoy The Phantom Pain, but I don’t think so.

Seriously? A 4/10?

Its a clickbait, there is nothing else that to be said. 4/10 is not a score you can give to a game with such an amazingly varied gameplay that is so well done.

If you dislike the story then i wont blame you but to give it a 4/10 is disrespectful to the developer who gave us an amazing game like this.

Also playing the first MGS game and not playing the rest then playing the Phantom Pain is not a good start.

Yeah, reviewer just doesn't want to fall in line with other 8's 9's and 10's. Trying to be different instead of doing a job professionally.

It is not a job. Just a random useless blogger.

And the "review", seriously, little whiny threads have more content than that.

Despite the obviously-soon-to-be-successfu l flamebait article (N4G is here for this), this trash little text deserves even less than a 4.

TL;DR: Site = trash.

I always trust on for reviews... /s

Pointless to get worked up about these types of unethical reviews.

Yukes1745d ago

It was overly-generous in my opinion. My 2/10 review is in the pipeline, because I haven't yet played MGSV and I haven't felt compelled to buy it yet, therefore it must be dross. Are we on the same kind of wavelength here Jonny?

4/10 for this is laughable lol this is easily one of the best games to come out this decade!

Cernunnos1744d ago

It is easily the weakest of the series, but it is definitely not a 4/10 either. As a game, and trying to be objective, I'd give it 8/10 or 8.5/10. As an MGS fanboy I would probably give it 7/10.

Nivekki1745d ago

Giving this less than an 7-8/10 is clickbait. Leave your MGS fears and theories at the door and take it for what it is, which is a damn fine game and certainly worth more than 2/5.

There are games that are worth 2/5, and this isn't one of them.

the_hitman30001745d ago (Edited 1745d ago )

Lowest i think someone should give it is 6. I really love the game. However I could see between main missions repeating and for some a disappointing story being a big factor to some. Personally I give it an 8.5. Also I agree any lower than I'd definitely consider it clickbait

Nivekki1745d ago

I've followed MGS since it was first put on playstation, I remember the first metal gear even, and I take each game as it turns out. No complaints.

I did think the cutscenes were detrimental to the actual gameplay in the more recent outings and they've turned it on its head here. To far in my opinion but it's still a damn fine game.

Since when did CEX review games lol?
