MGS Ground Zeroes

Post by RetroMartin » Fri Mar 21, 2014 11:15 pm

So I picked this up at about 9ish this morning and have been playing it all day. Yes the main story mission took me 1 hour 50 mins to complete with cutscenes, sure I have almost accomplished 50% of the game in one day but with 7 hours of actual playtime thats a given almost, but there is something about it that I am heavily enjoying.

I picked up the ps4 version so the exclusive mission for sony consoles is very much 4th wall breaking and love letter-y to MGS fans but it was a delight to play, the game is incredibly fun and whilst even with other missions and different play routes it is not incredibly long, it does what it set out to do - whet the appetite for Phantom Pain.

Anybody else's thoughts?

Downloading now, will let you know. I hope its better than Second Son. Guess I expected too much. I played 20 mins of Second Son but wasn't impressed at all :? Oh well MGS looks ace and fired up for this, don't care how short it is :D

As someone who has been bored to death by metal gear in the past the short length is actually appealing. Replaying for scores like a shmup also sounds good. Still..... there's short then there ground zeroes.

I am STILL playing this, thoroughly enjoying it still. A great game, some great features and is really setting up for The Phantom Pain being an amazing open world.
