Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain has finally released and seems to have set the world on fire earning several 10 out 10 reviews. After only 7 hours of gameplay I'm inclined to agree. I knew MGS5 was going to be the best game in the series once I played Ground Zeros but I had no clue it would be this good. I didn't have early l access to play the game so please bear with me but nonetheless lets get down to business.

MGS5 does so many things great the few issues it does have easily get over look. There were a couple of times when D-Horses dash didn't work and of course it had to be in the most tense of situations. The tag marker for sleeping enemies has disappeared moments after being placed and as great as the enemy AI is the byakugon vs rinnegon cat & mouse game can become weary. With that said these minor flaws never subtract from the sum of all MGS5's moving parts.

Kojima's attention to detail has always been on another level but the sound of the wind when your sprinting or hearing Big Bosses bionic arm hit different surfaces is aw inspiring. I could go on and on about how great Phantom Pain is but we've already acknowledged that. There are a few tips below.

Spoiler alert: if you haven't played MGS5 and want to enjoy it in its entirety stop here!
Episode 11: Clocked in Silence
You face off against Quiet in a sniper battler and it's like "The End" 2.0 meaning there isn't any 1 way to beat her. I've seen people comparing MGS5 to Deus Ex in this regard. Saying that if you don't develop your equipment in the right way you can't progress. Nothing is further than the truth. After checking to see if I could develop a tranquilizing sniper and being disappointed by how high the r&d level had to be. I proceeded to using my binoculars to find her from a safe vantage point. Quiet hums the song from the launch trailer so just like the End I used that to sneak up on her and hit her with some cqc which dropped her to half health. She teleported and it was renise and repeat. In less than 10 minutes she was on the ground with a gun in her face.

I think most people over thought this battle. I've read that so can drop supply drops on her location and take half her health with each 1. This boss encounter is as open ended as the game itself so test the limits on how crazy you can get.

In episode 12 you flee from a metal gear with Huey in toe and for me this was my first really!!!? moment in the game. After sneaking around 2 helicopters and several heavily guarded areas undetected you mean to tell me I have to hide from a metal gear with someone on my back and it can fucking run!!! Just another day in the life of Big Boss I guess lol. My only tip here is not to run once the metal has lost sight of you because it can hear better than most soldiers. I hadn't played anything past this point yet because once I start playing I can't put the controller down.
