About this game

Content Rating: Mature

Summary

The year is 1975, the age of détente. The Vietnam conflict is drawing to a close and the world is thawing in the wake of the Cold War. However, as tension among the world's giant superpowers eased, a tiny military force quietly took root in the Caribbean. A new type of military - an army without a nation, or any land to call home.

Lead by an enigmatic man known as "Snake," the clandestine group operated in the shadows as elite guns-for-hire, servicing various governments around the world. As their reputation grew, so did their funding and military might. Eventually, rumors began to spread that the group had attained nuclear weapons capability.

Ground Zeroes is a well executed stealth playground. The area is well-built and supports a number of varied approaches, and the gameplay that underpins it is hugely enjoyable. It’s a nice little palette cleanser that doesn’t have a huge amount of substance to it. The main mission could be stronger, but it’s a good enough framework to encourage fun improvisation. There isn’t a lot to Ground Zeroes on paper, and this stops it from excelling, but what is there is a lot of fun. It’s a game you will want to play a lot of, playing the main mission multiple times and completing all the side ops.

Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes is a short but challenging game, and those willing to cast aside conventional expectations will find a lot more here than first glance might suggest. While I’m unconvinced that Kojima is quite ready to tackle more controversial narrative material, for the most part Ground Zeroes represents a new, more sophisticated era for Metal Gear. A Big Boss/Snake adventure has never looked or played better, and in it lies incredible promise for its enormous big brother.
