Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has been reviewed by a Spanish Magazine called HobbyConsolas, and according to the reviewer, it is the best stealth action game he ever played.
While I am against review scores, those who care about scores would be happy to know that the magazine gave MGS V 97/100. That’s a very impressive number and similar scores are expected from others, when review embargo is lifted on August 24.
Plot twists are said to be mind blowing and are going to exceed all expectations. There were some negative points mentioned by the reviewer though, Spanish translation is an issue in for MGS V and it felt like the series wasn’t adequately ended.
But I guess that depends on your own perspective and how you wanted the series to end; so opinions on ending will differ from player-to-player.
You can see scans from the review below:
First review score came from JeuxVideo Magazine, who awarded the game 17/20. Gameplay, Graphics, Sound and Lifespan were all give 4 out of 5.
Judging by both of these reviews, it looks like Kojima is ending the series on a high-note. Like I mentioned, review embargo will be lifted on August 24, which in itself is a very bold move from Kojima and Konami.
In a time where developers/publishers don’t allow reviews until after the release of their game, this move shows the confidence Kojima and Konami have in Snake’s final outing.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will release in little over a week, on September 1, for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
Note: Review scans got mixed up earlier, I have posted correct scans.
