Hi guys! Today I will talk about one of the best games I have ever played: Metal Gear Solid V Phantom Pain. It truly is an amazing game and I wholeheartedly recommend it to you, and you will learn why it’s so amazing in this review.
As always, the review will have four parts, firstly I will talk about the storyline, then about the gameplay, afterward, I will talk about the visuals and finally, I will tell you my personal thoughts and give you a rating for the game from 0-10 (10 being the best).

One negative thing about this game is the story.
Perhaps Hideo Kojima was rushed to finish the game because there are a lot of questions about the story that are not answered, and generally, it doesn’t feel like they cared enough about the story.
Metal Gear Solid V Phantom Pain is one of those games that give the player absolute freedom to approach every mission the way he wants to, the player can be stealthy, go guns blazing or something in between.
That is something that pleases everyone because in every game there are people who do not like the way the game forces you to play but with Metal Gear Solid V no one can complain about it.
The game also has a variety of tools that you can use in the missions. You can choose your companion that will aid you in the mission, the weapons you will use, and you also have air support from your allies.
You can plan each mission the way you want to, and not only that, you have information before the mission about the weather since the weather is dynamic and plays a big part in how you will approach the mission, also you can choose the time of day you will play the mission, most of the time at least.
Another cool part about the game is that the enemies adapt to your playstyle, for example, if you kill enemies mainly with headshots, they will at some point use helmets to protect themselves, if you attack more at night, the enemies will use flashlights.
You can capture enemies and recruit them in your army, send them on missions that will give you profit and put them in various positions depending on their skills, it is a nice feature that makes the game and the choices you make more meaningful since you can focus your resources
The game also has a lot of missions for you to do and it is sure that it will keep you occupied for a long time.
Finally the game doesn’t have a difficulty setting and I know that you can make the game as difficult as you want it to be but I personally don’t want to change my playstyle to make the game more difficult, I want the game to be able to challenge me while playing it the way I want to, and to be honest the game isn’t that difficult.
I rarely faced a situation that was hard enough to make me put some real effort, and that may not be a problem for casual players but I want a game to challenge me so for me that’s a negative thing about the game.
The graphics of this game are truly outstanding, they are comparable to games that released this year and you can even say they are even better than the graphics of most games that are released today.
I thoroughly enjoyed roaming in the game and seeing those beautiful landscapes that the developers created for us. They used motion capture for the character’s movement and facial expressions so they look so realistic that I can confidently say that the game looks as close to a movie as a game can get while still being a game.
Despite the two negatives things about the game that I mentioned, only one of those for me is something that most people will agree and that is the story. The difficulty is something most people will not care and most of you won’t care.
For me, this game is a must-have and you absolutely need to try it out. It is one of the best open-world games that exist right now, and it has a lot of content and missions, it will take you a lot of time to finish them all.
General Rating: 9.7
