About this game

Content Rating: Mature

Summary

The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan has brought a new edge to the Cold War, and in 1984, a one-eyed man with a prosthetic arm appears in the country. Those who know him call him Snake; the legendary mercenary who was once swept from the stage of history and left in a coma by American private intelligence network Cipher. Snake is accompanied by Ocelot, an old friend who saved him from attack when he finally awoke. Now, Snake’s former partner Kazuhira Miller is being held by the Soviet forces in Afghanistan. Snake must undertake a solo mission to rescue Miller and prove to the world that the legendary mercenary is not dead and gone. That first step will lead to a path of vengeance against the very Cipher that slaughtered so many of Snake’s men, and to a battle that will embroil the whole world...What started in Ground Zeroes... must finish with ”V.”

Hideo Kojima’s original Metal Gear was a top-down, screen-by-screen stealth title. ...An open world, a customizable base, a variable mission structure – these are not traditional aspects of Metal Gear, but they are what makes The Phantom Pain such an exceptional game. The gameplay, storytelling, and protagonists in Metal Gear may shift with each new installment, but Kojima’s ability to surprise and enthrall gamers remains unchanged.

There’s nothing quite like Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. It’s packed with potentially hundreds of hours of content, especially when digging into the online and base building aspects. ...Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is the epitome of stealth action. It contains not only some of the best combat mechanics available, but everything you could have wanted from a Metal Gear Solid game. Plus Kiefer Sutherland.

Kojima has said every Metal Gear since 2 would be his last one, but this time with Konami seemingly burning the door behind him along with the building, it feels more final. We’ve seen one of the last gaps in the Metal Gear saga close, and to be honest it’s bittersweet. But if this is the last Metal Gear Solid, the last time we’ll see Solid Snake or Big Boss, then they couldn’t have ended it any better. Its a flawed game to be sure, but a flawed diamond is still a diamond. Metal Gear Solid V is a spectacular game, possibly the best stealth-action game ever, and worthy of being the series’ swan song.s’ swan song.
