I only title this review as First Look because of how insanely long the game is and there is no way i can do a full review for it now and do it justice. I have merely just touching the surface of this game and giving a little mini review on how i feel about it so far.
Just the introduction of this game can purely speak for how great the cinematic cutscenes are in this game. With such a rich story i was expecting a great cutscene but not that good. With such incredible detail in the cutscenes you just become fully immersed in the narrative and sometimes forget you are playing a game.And the beautiful transition from gameplay to cutscene is beautiful and something to definitely appreciate when playing the game.
For those of you who aren’t massive fans of the cinematic cut scenes, the gameplay definitely does make up for it. I feel it is definitely a game that takes full advantage of the next gen console and producing those eye watering graphics that you expect from games now a days. The game plays very smoothly and still keeps some of the old mechanics from some of the early games and even keeps the little details, such as the famous cardboard box.
This isn’t usually something i would make a comment about when reviewing a game but on this occasion i will definitely let you guys know about this pretty good soundtrack. For the part that i have seen of the game, the soundtrack is pretty good. Good enough for me to take notice any notice of anyway and i feel it compliments everything great about the game. It really creates that atmosphere in a game that uses all your sense and makes you really become the player within the game rather than just a robot playing a game set out for you by developers.
I feel (as expected) this game has blown everyone away and is doing brilliantly so far. Although a very long game, it has incredible replay value and gives the play a type of freedom to choose their style of combat and approach to a mission and explore different part of the “open world” of Metal Gear Solid. I can’t wait to see more of this game!!
