I think that Met­al Gear Sol­id V: The Phan­tom Pain might be one of the best games ever made. Hyper­bole aside, Koji­ma has gone out of the fran­chise with a bang, cre­at­ing a sol­id action game with so much replay val­ue that it has tak­en me over three weeks to fin­ish enough of the game to feel com­fort­able writ­ing a review. That is to say, there’s a lot of game here, but what’s more strik­ing is how fun it stays from begin­ning to end. In an already stel­lar series of games, Met­al Gear Sol­id V: The Phan­tom Pain man­aged to exceed my lofty expec­ta­tions and stand as my favorite game of the year thus far.
