[PS4] Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain - £3.75 (Pre-owned) - MusicMagpie

25
Found 11th May
Included title with last October's PlayStation Plus, still a cracking price if you didn't claim it






In many ways Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is an advancement of game elements introduced in its predecessor, Ground Zeroes, but for many this will feel like a grander realisation of the series' ambitions.

Taking place nine years after the events of the last game, The Phantom Pain kicks off with Snake awakening from his injury-induced coma. There's a tutorial as players are brought up to speed with what's been going on, then it's time to get on with the business of the game - taking revenge for the attack on Mother Base nearly a decade ago.

One of my top 10 games this generation and an absolute steal at £3.75
Wow I have spent around 60 hours on this on the pc! Great value!
I'm not convinced I'll like it but I'm giving it a go for that price. The original Metal Gear Solid is still by far the best!

The open world design is awesome as so many ways to solve each level
Have this on PS plus but still haven't downloaded it... I think music magpie have the one before his very cheap too just a short game but you can probably pick them both up for under a tenna
On Xbox GwG next week too
I think I now own this on all three consoles a shame Kojima didn't get to finish it, would possibly have made a fantastic game a stone-cold classic!
Brilliant price even for a game with no proper ending.
It's free on Xbox gold in 5 days time

It was already free on plus.... go figure.
Good apart from it's completely unfinished and there's barely any story unlike the previous games.

Mate, please define "unfinished" and also, I won't spoil anything here, but story (and side stories) is awesome! I have so much time of this game!
Do we need to have played the previous games? Is it the continue of the story?

It's another that divides opinion - the change to open world can sometimes feel a little aimless but the ability to "go loud" on almost every mission made this game for me...
I'd been punishing myself to complete an early mission without detection (which you can if you want) but after the 4th go, I decided just to snipe every bugger from afar and then call in the support chopper when the reinforcements came - utter joy

There's a temptation with "free" games, to not give them enough time and write them off too early... Don't do that with this game...
Get past the (awkward and a bit dull) hospital chapter and into at least 30 minutes of Afghanistan before you make your mind up.
Half finished game released 2 years early could not care less
~Oops!Unfortunately it looks like someone took the last one.
Came to this via Ps Plus having never played a MGS game or knowing the lore. Well I didn’t get it at all, I lived through the wierd hospital / alien invasion section and did a couple of missions in Afghanistan but was utterly bored, thedesert landscape got old quick as did crawling around at snails pace on my belly. Open world fan but just too samey for me!
Totally agree. Killing taliban and rescue! That's it with trips back to a growing base at sea with no real storyline. The only positive after the novelty goes is you remember it was free on ps+!

In the 80s America was working with the taliban, then known as mujahideen. Well actually the taliban was formed from the mujahideen, not directly the same thing. But you definitely wouldn't be killing taliban then, would be killing the Russians.

I found a steep learning curve. I really struggled with the ground zeros prequel as not used to the stealth aspect. The hospital scene was too long but amazing graphics. But then I started watching youtube tips. The idea of hiding on your horse to getpast enemies. My first real mission I went around the back and tried to use mortar on them failed as they called reinforcements. Then discovered you can sneak on a roof and take them out and wait while they wonder what is going on.

Best tip in early levels is find one person isolated. Through a magazine nearby to distract him. Grab him from behind and interrogate him to reveal the others. Then you can kill them one by one if not good at sneaking.

It got better for me when I started to research silent weapons as I prefer sniping. But the game adapts and they start to give guards helmets forcing you to change tactics. That is so unlike far cry 3 where I was soooo bored once I could snipe.


Videos like this beginner guide get you started with a few tips
Thanks for the link @jameshothothot if I come back to it I’ll check that out. I think for me it didn’t know what it was, eg the immersion of being dropped into Afghanistan and rescuing a POW was suddenly ruined by a stupid ok now “avoid the unkillable aliens” mission. Then how the realistic enemy reactions jarred with the unrealistic stuff like a silencer breaking after a few shots. And then that eye numbing scenery. And the checkpoint saves. And...unfortunately I could go on!

True. Without giving away spoilers... You don't really get aliens in many missions. There is a boss battle here and there but also with a giant robot. Most of the game is taking out soldiers. I also found the floating people took away the realism
