    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.

    The controversy spawning from myriads of website and magazine concerning the issues Konami and Kojima had before the release of the game areThe controversy spawning from myriads of website and magazine concerning the issues Konami and Kojima had before the release of the game are one of the many topics being discussed a lot during this year.MGSV took a lot of pressure caused by these situation and it's one of the most delicate things to happen to a legendary franchise like this .By any means,don't feel intimidated by the flood of complains the single player left unsolved, MGSV it's a hell of game.The production quality the team managed to give is one of the most breathtaking experience one as a gamer can live and have.Gameplay wise, the smoothness ,the infinite possibilities of approaches you have are one of the most satisfying and entertaining options you can always come up with. Considering this is the PS3 version,small technical problem arisen in the last cutscenes with tiny freezes,lags and framerate issues.Other than that, repetitive missions decreased a little my score because while fun , it was not pushing anymore interesting twist to it.
    I'm pretty convinced the current-gen versions are a most(and deliciously ) better iterations to buy.So please do yourself a favor and play it,fan or not.

    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
