With the introduction of Mother Base and an open world, The Phantom Pain pushes the Metal Gear Solid franchise to leaps never imagined.

What could be the last Metal Gear Solid and most certainly is the final Kojima produced Metal Gear Solid game, has been introduced to the world. New gameplay, story, and the Mother Base brings Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain to one complete package. After a long wait the final product was most certainly work it.

THE GOOD: If we have yet to receive a perfect game this generation, then Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is definitely one of the top contenders. The introduction of the Mother Base helped give players different ways to strategize on how to complete a mission, from it you can craft weapons, gain intel, train captured soldiers from the enemy and more.  Switching between weapons and items was extremely easy, and never felt like it was getting in the way of a gun fight. Phantom Pain also featured a fantastic soundtrack full of tunes from the 80’s.

THE BAD: The story is kind of all over the place which made things a little hard to follow. It would switch from normal warfare to the supernatural.

OVERALL THOUGHTS: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain if indeed the final entry into the franchise is the best title released yet, and Kojima’s last greatest production. Multiple gameplay elements, most notably the Mother Base, brought an excellent gaming experience. Switching controls was effortless and overall gameplay was rarely too hard or too easy, and the soundtrack is great. The story however, is admittedly a tad hard to follow when trying to put it all together.
