Honest to God Review: MGS5 Ground Zeroes (PS4).

Metal Gear Solid V Ground Zeroes (PS4) US$ 29,90 (Digital).
First of all, I bought my copy on PSN (PS4), for about 30 dollars, it is a nice deal because the physical copy costs up to 100 dollars here in Brazil.
Althought I own all consoles (minus WiiU), I went with the PS4 version since sony is nice enough to give me free indie games in the PSN PLUS program, we got to give back some love to them for that.
Well, now, the game:
I REALLY REALLY really loved!
It is the kind of game I can play 20, 30 times and try diferent aproaches in every play session, I am so in love with MGS5 GZ, what a masterpiece, AMAZING!
I took 93 minutes to clear the Ground Zeroes mission, but I was really really sloppy, got caught a bunch of times and died, did some Rambo shit too, killed a lot of soldiers...
I think that doing a ninja play session would take a lot longer, like 3 or 4 hours, and also there is a lot of hidden stuff and eye candy that I ignored to make this time.
It feels like a old school NES game somehow, I can´t explain! It is hard and fun, feels like a REAL video game, not some bulshit full of QTE that is barelly interactive or entertaining.
But also, it feels like a MGS game, it is so freaking fun, I can´t stop playing!
My final thoughts? Kojima is a freaking genious, this game is a piece of heaven, but I don´t know how much of the new generation gamers can understand it´s appeal and flavor. I really hope they get it, because this is just amazing video game right here, everyone should taste it.
MGS5 GZ is the coolest PS4 game yet!
There are still some missions to go, I will play them tomorrow. I still think the same: althought it can be played (in a sloppy way) in 4 or 5 hours (every mission counts), this game is much more fun than anything the west have been shoving down our throats as "30 hours games".
Who cares if it is short? If it is fun as this, I will play till my fingers bleed. And if it is boring, then 1 hour is way too long.
That said, to complete everything and get good enough to achieve everything would definitely take 20 hours or more. Heck, to gamers like me is more like infinite hours, since I am not that good...
Final Score:
Graphics: 10/10.
Gameplay: 10/10.
Story: 10/10.
Sound: 10/10.
By the way, I realize that this review sounds biased, but that what happens when a game make us fall in love with it, reason goes away. I missed that in video games, thank you mr. Hideo Kojima, for bringing it back to gaming.
And to put things in perspective, about the game lenght, I just finished the SIDE OPS mission Classified Intel, did my best, but it took me 68 minutes!



My grammar errors are justified by the fact that I am a brazilian living in Brazil. I am also very stupid.

I've slowly fallen in love with the MGS series over the past year.



93 minutes equals a 10/10?

lol @ that Kojima pic. "S-Snake... What took you so long?"

Its strange how you said it gave you a NES feeling, because I had a similar feeling. It felt reminiscent of the metal gear MSX games somehow to me.

This game is great, definitely worth the 20 dollars I paid for it on ps3. I just beat all the side ops (except Deja Vu) and that took me about 5-6 hours because I never kill enemies in mgs games. I haven't even started collecting all the stuff yet which will take a very long time.

How do you feel about the gameplay in comparison to other mgs games? I think they made it a lot more accessible and simpler to pull off things you could do in the older games like knocking out guys and clinging to walls.

I agree, the gameplay is smoother somehow, specially when compared to Peace Walker, in which was really hard to pull out some stuff. I want to do some ninja playthroughs like yours (not killing anyone), but some side missions are reaaaaaaaaaally hard, we will see.

The extra stuff, as you said, will take forever to collect, but I will try my best.

Yeah no-kill playthroughs are pretty tough especially when you're trying to get no alerts on top of that (and on the mission that takes place on broad daylight), but when you pull it off its the best feeling ever and thats when the game truly shines.

I really want to get all the extra casettes because I listened to Paz's diary and it was fantastic and gave a lot of back story as well. I'm hoping the other casettes that can be collected are just as good.

Have you tried importing music into the game? Its a very unexpected yet hilarious feature if you set a custom song to play when your helicopter touches down.

I'm glad you like it, and I know will too. I just don't like that price for a short game.

I listened to some of those diaries, as well those dialogues that tell about the nuke situation, very cool indeed, will listen to all eventually.

I don´t know how to import music to it, and I don´t know if it is possible since the PS4 do not support MP3, Sony should fi that!

US$ 19,90 for the last gen versions, that is a pretty reasonable price =D
