Conclusion: Ground Zeroes, the prologue to the upcoming Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain, showcases thrilling gameplay and Kojima Production's beautiful Fox Engine, but the game's brevity may leave many Gearheads feeling a bit flat.
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes review (Xbox One)
22 March 2014
Conclusion: If you are a fan of the series, this game is still a MUST. At the lower RRP, there is a small incentive here. I can understand how many people have marked this game down for its lack of size but we all have the choice as to whether we want to by this game. Who doesn’t read reviews on something they want to buy nowadays? The fact is what I play of this game – I love! The campaign isn’t actually a campaign, it is one mission with 4 or 5 extra side missions.
Pros: Stunning visuals, Slick gameplay, Stealth at it’s best
Excerpt: Ground Zeroes is not the Metal Gear you know. This is a game that’s far more open and flexible. It’s also surprisingly restrained for a Kojima project. The expected absurdity is included, but in a way that enhances rather than dominates. For the first time in a long time, Metal Gear doesn’t seem infatuated with itself, resulting in a more inviting and enjoyable game. In a lot of ways, the switch to Kiefer Sutherland embodies Kojima’s push for change.
Excerpt: Big Boss has been betrayed. It isn't yet clear by who or what, or even how many layers of betrayal are really at work. What is clear, however, is that two of his youngest friends — child soldier Chico and double agent Paz, both previously seen in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker— have been captured and taken to Camp Omega, a U.S. blacksite at Guantanamo Bay, for interrogation and possible execution. So while a team of U.N.
Conclusion: It is difficult to ignore the price tag, despite all of the brilliance in the short-lived action on offer and it might be best approached as a rental until the price drops. While there is definitely more gameplay than the two hours that other reviewers have already commented on, it is still a condensed game, especially for PS4 owners who are waiting for that next epic gaming experience.
Conclusion: The biggest argument then, for the whole package, boils down to price. Is Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes actually worth the $50-odd dollars the brick and mortars are asking (just AUD$29.99 on Xbox One via digital download, and AUD$39.95 on PSN)? The answer really lies in what sort of player you are: if you’re the completionist type, who loves bragging rights and hunting for Trophies and Achievements -- absolutely.
Excerpt: Quando em 1999, com os bolsos ainda a pesar do dinheiro recebido no Natal passado, comprei um cartão de memória, um comando Dual Shock (transparente, uau) e um exemplar de Metal Gear Solid para a primeira Playstation, estava muito longe de pensar que este seria o jogo responsável, não só por uma das mais amadas sagas, mas também por uma completa mudança do paradigma do que era um vídeojogo .
Pros: Grafismo, Liberdade na abordagem das missões
Conclusion: É um jogo curto, mas que oferece praticamente todos os recursos que provavelmente vamos utilizar no próximo título. É divertido... e se com o preço praticado (pela sua longevidade) o jogo lhe chamar atenção, vale a pena conferir e apreciar essa nova experiência antes de encaramos The Phantom Pain.
