Would have been a solid addition to the metal gear series if the game ended the first time it rolled the credits. The game up to that point had a good rotation going of side missions mixed in with interesting story beats told via a interactive comic book. It also plays fairly well too since it has the standard controls you would expect of a TPS. Plus the stealth action part is still really fun when I managed to pull it off.
Yet in the final chapter of the game this all goes away and is replaced with boring story missions that don't add anything to the overarching storyline till the last one and a bunch of boss re-fights. Plus other than the final one they are all in areas that I've already figured out so they don't contain any new challenges most of the time. The end of this game just feels like a really long filler episode that I didn't need to play at all. I could easily recommend anyone try this game out up to first ending but since I'm judging this game by all of the content I am not sure it's worth playing.
