Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain seems to be bursting at the seams with ambition, from what Konami has released in these past few weeks. First we get a brand new trailer, some hot new screenshots, and press even got to see a live demonstration of the game played behind closed doors at E3. And their reactions say a lot.
Phantom Pain is an immediately stunning game. The scope of the mountainous landscape littered with canyons, livestock, villages, and creeks is staggering. Riding your horse across the plains brought shades of Red Dead Redemption, even down to the way the music would swell as you neared a dangerous area.Writes IGN.
Before Snake heads towards the enemy camp, he surveys his surroundings. It's a gorgeous scene. The Phantom Pain's stunning open world is 200 times bigger than Ground Zeroes', we're told. This is true next-gen gaming, I think. Then Snake's horse takes a dump, right in front of the camera. We see everything, from the rear, in all its 1080p60 glory.Writes Eurogamer.
All told, The Phantom Pain is the most complex Metal Gear Solid game yet, and I can't wait to dive into it headlong; under the cover of a cardboard box, of course.Writes Gamespot.
From the sounds of it, The Phantom Pain is a popular game amongst the people who got to see it at E3, and this is why. Just today Konami has released a 30 minute video of this demo onto the internet.
