ME­TAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHAN­TOM PAIN [R18+]

PS4, XBOX ONE / $109.95 / OUT NOW

Herald Sun - Switched On - - GADGETS & GAMES -

Tra­di­tion­ally, this stealth-ac­tion se­ries has been de­fined by its well-di­rected story mo­ments, yet The Phan­tom Pain largely ditches scripted scenes for an open world where player choice and emer­gent game­play are pushed to the fore­front. As a re­sult, the latest Me­tal Gear Solid is the se­ries’ best, packed with mem­o­rable mo­ments and a stealth sys­tem that pushes the player to plan, adapt and im­pro­vise their way through each en­counter. A mas­ter­piece.
