    First I would like to mention that i have finished the main story and have logged close to 100 hours. Even with a few flaws The Phantom PainFirst I would like to mention that i have finished the main story and have logged close to 100 hours. Even with a few flaws The Phantom Pain is still an amazing game. Also probably one of the largest games in terms of scale and rivals GTA 5. I have been playing Metal Gear for the last 20 years and am blow away by how far it has come. I would strongly recommend playing Ground Zeroes before starting The Phantom Pain.

    Also I find some of the negativity towards this game ridiculous. The number one complaint for Metal Gear Solid 4 was the cut scenes were too long. Well now it seems people are complaining they are too short. Another one is the open world feels empty!? Seriously what where you expecting to find in the middle of a desert in Afghanistan? Or they didn't like having to chopper in and out? Your in enemy territory for god sake.

It's just amazing how a game can make you create beautiful gameplay moments that no other game could. GAME OF THE YEAR AND DECADE.

    Fun: 5/10 This Game can't be fun because of it's setting. Calling it fun would be weird.
    Gameplay: 10/10 If you want to play it stealthily or Guns blazing, you will feel the Adrenalin pumping.
    Story: 9/10 Definitely has it's downsides but it's an amazing story that will keep you hooked.
    Cast: 10/10 Amazing and interesting characters.
    Repetitive? Sometimes the Missions feel the same.
    Open world: 7/10 Konami managed to make an interesting Open world but it's a little too empty for my taste.

    I play mgs1,2,3,4G,5GZ,5TPP and Pw and this is the best in Gameplay, its very good i play the game like 600 hours and have a lot of mechanics

    But the history its pretty disappointing the character are **** and the Ocelot in this game its too much boring quiet is bad Code talker, miller.

    Skull face its the worst enemy in mgs series and the boss fight its very bad quiet its easy sahelantropus got a stupid fight and the skulls are boring

    But the game its good , not for a 10 but for a 8.0-8,5 yes
    And the version of ps3 its very stable 25-30 fps and the graphics its good for a ps3

    Amazing game. Can't believe Kojima made open-world and MGS merge so well. I'd give it a 10 but the PS3 copy is starting to show the age of theAmazing game. Can't believe Kojima made open-world and MGS merge so well. I'd give it a 10 but the PS3 copy is starting to show the age of the console now. First time I realized I need to upgrade to a PS4. The gameplay is not hampered, its just visuals. Draw distances suck, light pop ins occur visibly. Here or there I've experienced frame rate hiccups, nothing serious. So the only reason why I'm giving it a 7, not a 10... is purely because this game makes you realize your PS3 has become a dinosaur. I also experience occasional delayed loading for menu systems, but never for missions or free roam drop off, which is pretty amazing.

    If you don't have a X1 or PS4, I'd recommend the game, its just that good. (If you can't play it on console, play it on PC, this game is so well optimized that it runs on every machine just fine, even much below minimum specs.)
