Short But Sweet, 22 May 2014
I knew that this game would be short but it was as if I was playing a demo. Could easily be completed in one sitting. It offers side missions once the main mission is completed but they resemble an arcade game rather than the progressive story lines we know and love from previous MGS games. It's possible to expand the game time by taking different approaches but a lack of variation means you'll soon be bored.
However, it is enjoyable for a few hours. The combat is similar to previous MGS releases with a few additional innovations such as the slow-mo fire when you're a detected giving you a chance to kill the soldier before he calls for reinforcements.
The iconic voice of David Hayter as Snake has been lost but Kiefer Sutherland (Jack Bauer) is a worthy replacement.
Overall, I would recommend this game to MGS fans but don't expect half the enjoyment you got from the previous MGS games.
