Often derided as being 'too short' or 'too expensive' for what you pay, all those things aside you will find an excellent (if slightly inferior) level of what was perfected in MGS V. Similar to The Phantom Pain, this MGS has very little cut-scenes compared to its predecessor, and the Codec is largely restricted to helpful tips or advice, that being said, most of the narrative is shared via tapes you can find, and listen to during the mission, so there is more intrigue than is at first visually obvious. However, the ending is rather disappointingly short, and must've made the wait between both games excruciating!
Having completed the first (main, story-driven mission) I was rather surprised that there were close to 10 other missions, all based on the same level, but with different objectives, also, there are many time based challenges such as marking all the enemies in as little time as possible and so on. There is little of the trademark MGS whacky humour than usual, but one mission's ending in particular, breaks the forth wall in a particularly hilarious way! Indeed, the overall vibe and the strong suggestions of what goes on on the tapes is disturbing to say the least, and surpasses the darkest elements of previous games. Definitely not for kids!

Good fun, but buy MGS5 The Phantom Pain instead, it's far better value (unless this is dirt cheap).

Technically a very good game excellent graphics and very cinematic. Graphics really are the best i've ever seen on a ps3 console. It really feels like an interactive movie which metal gear solid games have been known for in recent years. However the game is extremely short and really only takes a few hours to complete which is quite shocking to be honest. Additional game modes which makes the game last bit longer. However the main part of the game is too short therefore is not really value for money. It's almost like playing 1 big over or not about game weather is the prices cheaper i would give it a high rating however due to the price and length of the game demo with a few extra modes. Overall a good game however due to the price and length of the game i can only give an average rating.

Can't believe how short the storyline mission was in this MGS. It was over on the first day of playing and if your an avid gamer used to the series that may even be a couple of hours for you. Once you have completed the storyline mission there are other missions in the same landscape to complete, which will keep you going for a while longer. Now I can't wait for phantom pain but I'm a massive MGS fan. If you aren't might be avoiding this one as it is kinda short. Gameplay good though and a nice intro to phantom pain.

Arrived on time as expected. I very much enjoyed the game but really it should have been part of the main title not paid for separately. I would recommend it if you like replaying games to get high scores and achievements, if you do you will literally love this and spend hours on it. If you play games through once only (for the story or something) maybe going for the HD remakes of the original games instead.

Rather boring since there is only one map and there are only a very small number of weapons available in game.

Very good prequel to MGS5 TPP, but it was a bit too much money on release, should have been £10.
