Famitsu has posted a review score for the upcoming “Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.” According to a report from Nintendo Everything on March 11, the open-world action-adventure title almost got a perfect score from the group of reviewers.
A pair of the editors gave the video game a 10 while two more writers awarded the same product a 9. In total, “Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes” earned an overall score of 38 out of a possible 40.
Despite the achievement, the upcoming title fell short of the two previous major releases in the series. “Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots” and “Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker” both got perfect 40 out of 40 scores from the same publication.
The slightly lower score for “Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes” may be due to the lack of contents with the main campaign lasting at around only two hours. Although the software products does include a handful of extra missions and features that increases replay value, many fans are upset with the lack of length.
“Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes” is positioned as a prologue to “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain,” which was previously confirmed to be around 200 times bigger. Konami Digital Entertainment will be releasing the prelude on March 18 for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on March 18.
