Short Story Campaign
As you heard by now, Ground Zeroes is short…extremely short. We’re talking about an hour and change short. So those expecting to stay preoccupied for several hours or the next couple of days might feel a little cheated and treat the title similar to a DLC mission. Just know that the side missions should suffice you some extra time with the game.
Ground Zeroes offers a ton of great gameplay features from the new Bullet Time mode to its innovative mapping system, which favors sneak attacks and routing schemes. As expected with every new next-gen Kojima title, the game delivers breathtaking graphics courtesy of the FOX engine–giving all cut scenes a cinematic look only present in some of Hollywood’s biggest animation films. Despite the main campaign being really short, all the extra side missions provide a little more to the story with different objectives. The MGS V prologue serves as a great preview of what we expect to be magnified when The Phantom Pain launches in the near future.
