“Metal Gear Solid” creator Hideo Kojima released the new trailer of “Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain” ahead of its official kick off next week.
The trailer is a bit nostalgic as it goes back to the past of “Metal Gear”. The sneak peak promised gamers could expect an “ultimate thrill” and “ultimate story”.
“Phantom Pain” has also earned impressive reviews from several tech sites.
GameSpot gave a perfect 10/10 review, saying the “Phantom Pain” is the best “Metal Gear” in the series if not the “one of the best action games ever made.”
The site added it is also the most consistent and daring of all “Metal Gear” titles when it comes to storytelling and subject matter.
It praised the excellent cinematography and voice acting echo of the game, saying it is “contemporary standards for film and TV, carrying extraordinary characters into the realm of believability.”
The “Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain” also allows players to explore entire countrysides which players would love, rather than just roaming around a small base as in Ground Zeroes, GameSpot added.
IGN also gave its highest score possible for “Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain”, and described it as “a gameplay marvel.”
IGN said “Phantom Pain” is the least “authored” Metal Gear, but it’s also the most player-driven.
CinemaBlend noted that the latest “Metal Gear” have so far gained a score of 95 with 20 reviews counted.
