“Judged just by the core story mission, Ground Zeroes is short,” Game Informer said. “We completed it in just less than two hours.”

In a previous VG 24/7 report, Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima said that the prequel to Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is a “very short, smaller” interpretation of the game, though because of its non-linear characteristics players can play through the title however they wish.
