    Una muy buena despedida para esta consola, este y el Rise of the tomb raider fueron los últimos triple AAA que compre para la consola y enUna muy buena despedida para esta consola, este y el Rise of the tomb raider fueron los últimos triple AAA que compre para la consola y en ambos casos no me equivoque, gráficamente es espectacular, a pesar de repetir misiones no se siente repetitivo debido a que te dan libertad para afrontarlas como quieras y a pesar de tener algunos problemas no empañan el conjunto.

    The best game since Mass Effect 3. This review must be 150 characters long and writing more won't make the game any better so I'll just say this: Boss

    this is an honest review by a genuine person who played the game on day 1 for the playstation 4 and then again on the xbox 360 to see how itthis is an honest review by a genuine person who played the game on day 1 for the playstation 4 and then again on the xbox 360 to see how it holds up. first off its a smaller install , the game fits on 2 discs and 1 just needs installing then you play off disc 2 or you can install that aswel which means youll get faster loads times between deaths and other key instances. konami seem to have been working on the last generation versions of the game for a very long time. they have used every last chunk of the consoles power to get as much as possible out of the hardware. the major difference from the ps4 version you notice right off the bat is theres no anti-aliasing or smoothing so everything seems very low resolution and everything has jagged edges. however they use a motion blur filter when theres a lot of movement during cut scenes and throughout the gameplay where they feel it necessary and this makes the images look much improved. facial detail is very high and theyve managed to optimise the frame rate on xbox 360 to almost run at a flawless 30fps with just a dip to 27-28 very rarely. (the ps3 version sometimes doesnt move off 20fps for lengthy periods)
    music and sound design is excellent with a fantastic score throughout.
    this time around the cutscenes have been cut right back for favour of a huge open world playground with vehicles, guns , horses and sheep.
    it is mostly left up to yourself to decide how you do each mission you can either stick to metal gear formula and take your time and be all stealthy or you can go in call of duty style all guns blazing.
    this is more than likely to be the last game of this standard to be released on the last gen consoles ( with the exception of rise of the tombraider, - call of duty black ops 3 doesnt count ) so it is a more than excellent end to wrap things up.
    presentation is superb the only niggle is the missions can get a little bit repetitive but no different to other sandbox games that repeat themselves. its a lot of fun and in the end the gameplays the same on all the current machines it was made for. 360 holds up well with some greater detail and effects than on the ps3 and a better frame rate. the ps4 still has the edge with its anti-aliasing, much higher resolution and better textures ( this goes without saying though )

    would of liked to give the game a 10 for its accomplishments but that would be unfair. so it gets a well deserved 9 out of 10.

    if you still have a 360 its worth picking up and it will take a long time to finish ( about 30 hours average )

    That's a good game, but compared to the other metal gear solid games it isn't much. It's cleary unfinished, you can get bored in time. It'sThat's a good game, but compared to the other metal gear solid games it isn't much. It's cleary unfinished, you can get bored in time. It's true that it has epic moments, awesome gameplay, excellent soundtrack, the soundtrack is pretty good and stunning graphics, with very good characters. It just mess it up with the history, there was a lot of stuff that was cut off. However, still a good game, but it was cleary unfinished and kinda boring sometimes, with not that good boss battles. That's why i'll give it a 8. I recommend if you're a metal gear fan. Expand
