Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes review

You go to hell Skull Face... straight to hell!

MGSV plays okay on the PS3 but it's definitely convinced me to purchase a PS4 when the full game is released. Here's to you Hideo Kojima for getting us to shell out $30 for a 90 minute demo.  It took me a while to figure out the new controls, but once you do the game is golden. It's a little jarring to hear Kiefer Sutherland as Big Boss. Ground Zeroes takes place one year after Peace Walker so the voice transition isn't smooth. Big Boss doesn't do a lot of talking, but then the Snake characters never did. If you beeline the story mode you'll miss out on a lot of extra content. I'm not sure I'm better for hearing it though. The tapes with Chico and Paz... yes, Kojima was right on when he worried that he might be taking it too far. Still, I recommend the game for all die hard MGS fans who can't wait for The Phantom Pain. You get a thumbs up from Beefy Levinson if you know who Nicola and Bart are without googling:
