About Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Releasing after Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (which serves as the prequel to this game), The Phantom Pain is an open-world third-person stealth-based action-adventure, which also includes the base-building feature that debuted in Peace Walker. There's a new day-night cycle (which runs in real time), and the game allows you to tackle story missions in "any" order, while still - according to series architect Hideo Kojima - understanding the encompassing message by the end.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
8.9

The Phantom Pain offers the most mature kind of stealth; it expects you do everything yourself and learn if you don’t know how.
