GameSpot editor Peter Brown praised The Phantom Pain in his review, saying it is for sure the best Metal Gear game ever made.

"When it comes to storytelling, there has never been a Metal Gear game that's so consistent in tone, daring in subject matter, and so captivating in presentation," Brown said. "The Phantom Pain may be a contender for one of the best action games ever made, but is undoubtedly the best Metal Gear game there is."

In other news about The Phantom Pain, we're still waiting for Konami to clarify exactly how microtransactions work for the game's Forward Operating Base (FOB) multiplayer mode.
