Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain Review

Snake is back in Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain. Yes, get your cardboard box ready and be on alert for exclamation points, because we are going to Afghanistan and Africa.

As the Story Goes… 

It’s been nine years since the events of ground zero and things are not looking for Snake… or big boss. You wake up at a hospital. Trying to focus your eyes while the nurse tends to snake. Then Skull Face‘s men come to track you down. Snake must escape before they kill him. It’s a good thing he has helped! This starts Big Bosses journey. One with many explosions, child soldiers, saving animals, and slow motion. The game goes through two chapters, but it felt incomplete. There could have been more story to the game, or that chapter two needed more to it. I will not give away anything but chapter one felt like an action movie, chapter two hit that melodramatic note. It was like viewing a reality TV, that actually wasn’t trying to be “real.” The great parts about it were the inclusion or child soldiers when Snake/Big Boss travels to Africa. It was a welcome inclusion to not shield use from what happens in other parts of the country. Even though it may be trivial it helped bring some reality to a virtual game world. All the characters seemed to be common archetypes.  Silent hero fixing the world, the gunslinger with a cool demeanor, the commander out for revenge and much more. The story does play out like an 80s action movie (mostly). There’s also a forced love story, that is tragic. It all adds up to a great 80s action movie. So, if you’re looking for a spectacular game that mimics 80s action movie, you’ll love this game.
