Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (Xbox One)

 

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.

Incredible graphics. Revamped, hard-hitting CQC fighting technique. Varied Side-Ops missions

Extremely short core story. One map. Anticlimactic conclusion

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Kojima Productions' latest entry into the long-running stealth-action series, isn't the sprawling, heavy-handed, conspiracy-laden narrative about shadow organizations battling for world supremacy that you've come to...

Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes (PS4) Review

 

Hideo Kojima's legendary franchise returns with a prequel to a prequel, but is it worth half the price of a full game? 411's Gavin Napier covers the game so that you can know before you buy.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes: Short, but still slick

 

One of the grandfathers of stealth, Metal Gear Solid, has seen a lot of changes over the years. You can almost track the slow evolution of the genre with each iteration, going from traditional stealth with the original title to a more streamlined,...

Kojima lets us play in a tiny corner of his much larger sandbox.

A Metal Gear sandbox; Diverse gameplay styles encouraged; Many paths through most of the missions; Higher, more realistic visual detail; iDroid increases game immersion

Only 5-10 hours of content

The six side missions are where Ground Zeroes diversifies itself and shows what Kojima most likely intends for the future of the series. In one you must assist a V.I.P. escape by providing cover fire from a chopper, while another has you tasked with...

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z

 

The concept for Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z could have come from a 12-year-old’s sketchbook during a particularly boring algebra class. Still, I kind of respect Tecmo Koei and Keiji Inafune’s Comcept for having the guts to release a retail game...

Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes review: Naked snack

 

It's a pleasure being lost in the universe of Metal Gear. With every game, and with every return of director Hideo Kojima, the fascinating stealth series redraws the boundaries of its dense military fiction, pushing them back to include more and more...

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes acts as a prologue to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and takes place one year after the events of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. Assuming control of the legendary Snake (a.k.a. Big Boss), players are charged...

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Review

 

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is fantasticly over-priced.

Combat gets some love too. In addition to completely believable weapon firing physics and character movement, you also get slow motion detection sequences that add a ton of value to the gameplay. After an enemy detects you fully, you get a few seconds...

Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes review

 

When Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain was announced, along with a controversial teaser trailer debuting Kiefer Sutherland as the new voice of protagonist Solid Snake, we doubt there would have been a single true gamer not excited. Admittedly, they...

Excellent voice debut for Kiefer Sutherland as Solid Snake, intuitive controls, free-flowing combat, stealth doesn’t feel a chore like some games, unlockable missions add more

Very very short main mission, overpriced a little considering length

Expert review by:

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

 

Is two hours of tactical espionage enough?

Open-world approach makes stealth feel fresh again ; Stunning next-gen graphics ; Fun Side-Ops missions

Too short or too expensive ; Just the one area to explore ; Feels like a prologue or a demo

Unfortunately it’s also incredibly short, and neither the replay value nor the excellent side-ops missions will convince you that you’re playing a full-sized game. At £12 to £15 we’d be falling over ourselves to recommend it, but as it is we have to...

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Review

 

The buzz you may have heard is, this is a relatively short campaign that can pretty much be knocked over in roughly two hours, and this is correct. However, what Ground Zeroes does is offer a compelling package of bite-sized replayability baselined...

Typically, the opening in-game cut-scene oozes with Kojima's directing style and teases more to come; The sandbox play-space offers many different ways to approach mission objectives and challenges; At night and in the rain, Fox Engine shines; Plenty...

Typical MGS storyline and characters might heavily confuse newcomers; Fox Engine shines less during daylight missions; The confined play-space might not be enough for some to fork out the game's cost
