I have all MGS franchise and this game is a nice addition to collection.
Metal Gear Solid v: Ground Zeroes features 6 missions (7 after the latest update) including the story mission. The gameplay mechanics have changed quite a bit. Forget everything you knew and expect to have a way tougher time than before. Big Boss can be spotted very easily by enemy soldiers now, and is not half as agile as Snake was in MGS4. MGSv offers much greater challenge and forces you to make the most of your night vision goggles and binoculars. The item selection menu resembles the one in Portable Ops. Big Boss can only carry two types of large firearms, one pistol and four types of grenades, mines or other throwable items. Lastly, forget healing items; there aren't any. Health regenerates over time now, not unlike the Uncharted games.
I should probably say that Ground Zeroes is the beginning of a story, a lot darker than what you've experienced in the previous games. Some really gnarly stuff happen this time, so don't take this game lightly.
For those who are interested, the Japanese version includes english subtitles.
Overall, it's a solid game that mostly serves as a warm up for MGSv: The Phantom Pain. Get it if you think you're up for it.
Tougher than everything that came before - especially for the true fans of stealth. The whole experience has been renewed and the game does not have to be short unless you want it to be... Especially since there is a LOT to see and experiment in the huge map. And I haven't even touched the Spec Ops yet.
If you bought that "Pfft, this is a tech demo..." argument, you are missing out on something not just promising but genuinely impressive. And the graphics and effects are just the tip of the iceberg.
Fully recommend for any mgs fan
The only problem is the fact that it was rushed out and is a part one which completely goes against what a mgs game should be. The other issue I have with it is I didn't read the description properly and bought the Japanese dialog with English subs so the game looks fantastic but I can't watch it cos I have to read the subtitles
