Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Review

1445921221_tmp_1

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain opens with a lengthy, baffling, and awkward introduction. Once that is over, you find yourself enveloped in a domain of opportunities and conspiracy.

The game places you in the shoes of the solider and gold-digging, Big Boss. In the game, Big Boss has been in an unconscious state for nine years and now you are back to seek retribution on those responsible for it. You will break into enemy bases, make your own army, and expose a conspiracy. It’s everything a greying soldier who has been in a coma for nine years can get when he ultimately recovers.

Moving ahead in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, you will devote a lot of time prowling around enemy headquarters. You will seize assets, manpower, and of course get involved in somewhat stimulating story.

You will have access to enough weapons and tools to use, to turn a small tense infiltration assignment, into a war. This makes Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain one of the more magnanimous furtive games. The game also includes a buddy system. When you go on assignments you can use friends, such as a dog to confuse or pursue enemies. Then there’s Quiet, a sniper who attacks enemies from a distance. Each of these can be used depending on how you choose to play.

As you play you shall crack the use of Fulton Recovery System on bigger items like jeeps and towers as well, which is fun. You can also assign where you would want each abducted soldier to focus his efforts on. It’s easy to control the base, but you can also let the game decide for you.

But while Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain might seem flawless, it is not. Apart from the above-mentioned direct opening, the game is also layered with an online element which can be annoying. Daily events, rewards, and bonuses for logging in all feel very despondent.

Luckily, the game can be played offline, which is essential for best experience. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is a great game loaded by some insignificant issues that can thankfully, be corrected with an update or two. However, if you continue be assure to be treated to a smooth open-world adventure that very few can match up.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Lionel Gurjao

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
