Ground Zeroes offers total freedom of play: how missions are undertakenGround Zeroes showcases Kojima Productions' FOX Engine, a true next-generation game engine which promises to revolutionize the Metal Gear Solid experience. The first Metal Gear Solid title to offer open world gameplay. Ground Zeroes offers total freedom of play: how missions are undertaken is entirely down to the user. Unrestricted stealth: Imagine classic Metal Gear gameplay but with no restrictions or boundaries. Players use intelligence and cerebral strategy to sneak their way through entire missions, or go in all guns blazing. Each will have different effects on game consequences and advancement. Multiple missions and tasks - Ground Zeroes boasts a central story mode and Side-Ops missions ranging from tactical action, aerial assaults and "covert" missions that will be sure to surprise. Ground Zeroes users will benefit from a clean in-game HUD that shows the minimal amount of on-screen data to give a more intense gaming experience. [Konami] Expand

    It is surprising, and not a little depressing, that all people want to talk about with this game is the running time.

    After the credits roll on the main mission and a handful of side activities unlock, the best part of Ground Zeroes is just getting started. With a dearth of secrets to find, and new challenges to master, chasing the endgame will keep you entertained for hours on end.

    It's not an easy sell. In terms of gameplay it's two not all-too-long evenings of entertaining mission gameplay plus quite a few hours spent trying to leave a lasting impression on the numerous leaderboards. I don't regret one second I put into this, took it in with a lot of curiosity and wonder. Still, you can't shake the feeling that this would have been served better as part of The Phantom Pain. As a stand alone game, it's hardly essential.

    It depends on whether you see this as a fan of the franchise or not to fully justify the price tag. In any case it's a good start for the upcoming new chapter of Hideo Kojima's series of tactical espionage.

    Audacious is the word that best describes Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. It contains quality material, but it's little more than a preview of something better, and as such, simply should not be presenting itself - deceptively - as a game in its own right.

La politica actual de dlc, expansiones y contenido extras está matando a la industria. Considero que este capitulo deberia haber estado incluido dentro de The Phantom Pain o salir a un precio de 10-15€. En cuanto al juego como tal es soberbio, siendo el mejor metal gear solid en lo que a jugabilidad se refiere. Por contra completar el juego al 100% tan solo te costará 12-15 horas. Expand

Well guess what; much toI jumped in after picking up on a discussion in some kind of covert fanboy thread suggesting there were 5 "missions". Well guess what; much to my chagrin the credits roll after you have completed the sole mission or rather the sole environment a Guantanamo style camp. Is that a spoiler or am I saving you the true spoiler; the feckin credits rolling so unbelievably early! The rest are replay side-ops, within same said environment and I never replay a game........ so damn hard to rate this over 5. Technically impressive if a er, little sparse. €30 it cost me :/ Expand
