The new Metal Gear Solid game, Ground Zeroes, is under scrutiny by gamers around the world for being too short. Apart from the challenges, gamers are already competing for best time to complete levels or the entire game. One gamer finished the entire game in 89 minutes. Another tough gamer completed the “Prison Camp” level in just 7 minutes.
The unwritten quest of the game has now become the “Speed Run” where the objective is to complete the entire game without alerting a guard, using weapons ad using reflex abilities.
Besides the alternative challenge, Ground Zeroes plays much the same as the series’ last major hit, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. It’s the same unique mix of stealth and shooting, where the guards are smart enough to keep you on your toes. We also noticed that the way you tag enemies with your binoculars is straight out of Assassin’s Creed, and an optional automatic bullet-time mode gives you a few precious seconds to take out alerted enemies before they sound the alarm.
It is definitely up there with many of the top first person shooter games and we reckon that paired with the video glasses it will deliver a totally new gaming experience.
