A fantastic soundtrack rubs shoulders with stellar voice acting. We still miss David Hayter, but Kiefer does a fine job as Venom Snake/Big Boss.
A remarkable-looking game, The Phantom Pain brilliantly captures its locations and characters in stunning detail. It's superb, and the visual discrepancy between Xbox One and PS4 is marginal; completely unnoticeable even.
By far the most playable Metal Gear game ever, The Phantom Pain is intuitive and perfectly attuned to whatever playstyle you prefer, whether it's balls-out gunplay or silent stealth.
Truly vast, Metal Gear Solid V's open-world Afghanistan, the Angola-Zaire border and Mother Base offer a massive play area, while the number of main missions, Side Ops and other activities will keep you playing for dozens of hours. It's gargantuan, although there can be occasional overlap in the types of objectives you'll undertake.
A strong list with a decent spread that's worth investing time in. Not the most inspired achievement list, this is nonetheless one you'll strive to complete.
