Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is the first segment of the ‘Metal Gear Solid V Experience’ and prologue to the larger second segment, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain launching thereafter.Read full description
To be perfectly honest Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is nothing more than a tech demo for the main part of the series. It explains what happened before The Phantom Pain so it's a prolog to the game. Very short one sadly. You can finish it withing an hour or two. There are also additional challenges to make the game last longer but really, asking 20 dollars for a demo is somewhat funny.
This game has a really bad reputation on internet, mostly because "it's short" and that's the only thing most people who didn't play it know about it. And while it's true you can beat it in under an hour, it's not whole true, because that's like saying that you can beat original Metal Gear Solid in under 2 hours - you can, but you speedrun. Here, it's the same case. The camp itself is pretty huge and there is a lot to find and explore. For something that people call "demo", it has crazy amount of content and side missions, and some of its content transfer to The Phantom Pain (like one "special" worker). There is one main mission, Ground Zeroes, 4 side ops and 2 extra ops, which add few hours to it. Gameplay, soundtrack and voice acting are excellent and are really good introduction to The Phantom Pain, although it is not necessary to enjoy it. On itself, it's pretty good game. Worst part about it was when it got released, it made the wait for Phantom Pain a lot harder. Recommended if you like Metal Gear or stealth games.
