Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes Gameplay Impressions

Metal Gear Solid 5 Ground Zeroes Gameplay Impressions

A bunch of people got to play through Ground Zeroes and have tweeted their impressions. You can see them all below.

Samual Cassado:

Just saw the ending. Goosebumps. Disbelief. Shock. reboots game I'm going back in.

It's lovely to see how intense @HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN's passion is for proper, epic, emotionally driven, high-end productions.

Dazz Brown:

I'd like to point out that this game is not a 2 hour game... Ground Zeroes is a great demonstration of the FOX Engine.
The game doesn't play like a standard MGS game in this sense. Several missions, each range from 30 mins to 2 hours.
The game now really requires you to look at your surroundings. Objects make noise and get knocked around.
Get Ground Zeroes on PS4, not XB1. Way better visuals, frame rate, everything... I believe @HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN said so himself.

Sam Smith:
Finished GZ for the first time in about 90 minutes. Total game completion? 9%. I think that tells you all you need to know.
The ending to Ground Zeroes is crazy exciting. Kojima is still the absolute best at what he does.
Once you get used to him (and stop thinking of Jack Bauer), Kiefer is actually really good as Snake. I've been converted.
The whole thing feels faster paced as a result, less reliant on cutscenes with more storytelling through gameplay. It's great.

Douglas Nerd:
Controls are much, much better than in MGS4. Really easy to do all the stuff you want, easier to interrogate enemies etc.
I'm only playing on PS4, but I think Mr Kojima has already said that the PS4 version is smoother than the One version.
