Game Review: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain – It’s really good

Hideo Kojima's latest – and possibly last – instalment in the Metal Gear franchise is one of the best games I've ever played. It's not without fault, but Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is a triumph for the open world genre, and redefines what a stealth game can be.

Metal Gear is a series traditionally defined by stealth mechanics, futuristic technology (read: giant robots), solid storytelling, a movie or two worth of dialogue, and plot twists galore. While The Phantom Pain delivers on most of these aspects, it falls a little short on others. Regardless, it’s a game that is definitely worth your attention.
