In the spirit of MGS I was left with one single expression after gazing at all the mainstream media reviews of MGS V (!!!!!!!) Anyone who knows MGS knows !.
I'm now 100% convinced that all mainstream game reviews are dishonest. If you read gamer reviews you'll find that the general consensus is the game is a epic failure 6-7 tops, the lack of story, repetitive gameplay, boring open world, spartan boss fights, wonky outdated A.I, horrible pacing, lack of cinematics, lack of interesting characters, lack of dialogue, etc, etc, etc.
Is it possible that ALL major media outlets have completely missed all these things that the average gamers were able to notice without any review training? No. The system for AAA reviews are rigged.
If anything this whole MGS V review fiasco has done is point the direction to the only honest game sites on the web. If you want honest game reviews, then check out the 2 lower scored MGS V reviews on metacritic and you'll know who to trust for future game reviews.
I'm very disappointed in the state of video game reviews now. When all credibility is lost, there is no going back.
