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 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


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

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Review


There's been uproar over the content of the absurdly named Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes ever since people found out it could be completed in just o [...]

"Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes" is the best playing Metal Gear game to date. Sure, it’s light on content, but for the price it’s actually rather good value assuming you don’t mind playing a number of scenarios within the same confines. It looks...

Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes


Games Xtreme takes a few hours out with Snake and finds MGS V: Ground Zeroes to be a superb prequel setup for Phantom Pain.

MGS V: Ground Zeroes might not be the longest game ever, but it's certainly got a huge replay value and experimenting with tactics and options has never been so much fun, thanks to slick controls and responsive AI.

Fission Mailed?

Looks superb ; Feels and plays like a proper MGS game

Might not be enough content there for some

Good Demo for the real thing


I knew what i was getting when I purchased this game, a demo for the real MGSV coming out later this year. Nonetheless if you can find this for less than $12.00 it's worth a try as the mechanics in this game are awesome and the game, even at sub 1080,...

Fun, but short game...


This game definitely has good action and storyline. However, the length of it leaves a lot to be desired. Hopefully it will serve as a nice transition for the upcoming game.
