So Metal Gear Solid V is finally here and it goes without saying that it is a pretty special game. It seems fitting that Hideo Kojima’s final Metal Gear game is the greatest realisation of the tag “Tactical Espionage Operations”. MGS V is hands down the greatest stealth game ever made, it may even be one of the greatest games ever made.
There was concern from the die-hard fans of the Metal Gear series that Kojima’s choice to take the series Open-World was a big mistake. In fact it turns out it was the best decision for the Metal Gear franchise. MGS V gives players several huge open-world enviroments to play in and by play, I literally mean it. The freedom given to you to perform missions is entirely down to the player. With hardly any hand holding or large map pointers, objective lists. The Phantom Pain treats you like the character you are meant to be, a legendary soldier. You are given an ultimate objective to achieve and dropped into the world with the weapons you have selected and thats it. How you achieve is them up to you.
With another Riddler challenge won, Batman needs to head over to the heavily armed Founders island, where Scarecrow and Arkham Knight have made their base of operations. First task is to disable the Ground to Air missile launchers. Just as well he has a tank!
After a break from posting these, basically because I was grinding the hell out of Riddler Trophies, Batman is back and ready to finish his walkthrough! In Part 20, Its time to hunt down more of those 243 Ridder trophies. As if Batman hasn’t got more pressing things to do like stop the homicdal maniacs from destroying the entire city. Why Riddler when I get my hands on you!
Getting back to stopping Scarecrow and the Arkham Knight from flooding the whole of Gotham with Crane’s latest fear Toxin. Batman has found an unlikely ally in Poison Ivy. With her help she can use the ancient trees of Gotham to absorb the toxin in the event of the Cloudburst being detonated. Except the Arkham Knight’s Militia have been sent to stop them.
Its time for more detective work, as Batman tries to find out who or what the mutated bat-like creature, soaring baove Gotham, actually is. Maybe the discovery of a lab, may lead to the answers and hopefully a cure…
