Impressions

Play Magazine’s Sam Smith was more precise on what kind of completion percentage you’re going to by finishing the game in 90 minutes:
"Finished GZ for the first time in about 90 minutes. Total game completion? 9%. I think that tells you all you need to know."

@DouglasNerd added more to the debate about gameplay time, and talked about controls and the PS4 version of the game:
"So yeah, the main mission of Ground Zeroes is short. BUT, you really are not going to find and discover everything in 2 hours.

Controls are much, much better than in MGS4. Really easy to do all the stuff you want, easier to interrogate enemies etc.

Btw, the frame rate is butter smooth on PS4."

The link above has a few more impressions, but they are trending all over Konami's Twitter as well. Sorry if this has been posted (didn't see it)!

Bonus:
Giacomo Vaccari ‏@GiacomoVaccari:
Completed a full-stealth run of MGSV:GZ. Stealth is the best it's been yet. Controls are more fluid while staying true to MGS #MGSVGZNASU

I don't know much about this, but is this one of those games where it's possible to rush to the end quickly, but the meat of the game is not contained in the main objective they give you?

Trying to think of a previous example but I'm drawing blanks at the moment.

So 90 minutes to beat the main mission, but

After completing the main mission and a side mission in 4 hours the game says Iím at 10% completion. Sounds good to me

How long are these side missions?

So is the % going to go up with "collect 10 dogtags", "read 3 adult magazines", "interrogate 5 guards without being seen", and "collect 8 red shines"?

Because I think we all saw that coming.

The main chunk of that % is probably patches and cassette tapes (i.e. collectables). Just a guess.

The 9% in 90 minutes bit doesn't really help with figuring out replayability. Collectible things hidden throughout the environment could fill 1% - __%, side ops grading could account for percentages, using different vehicles and finding guns could count towards the percentage. Really hard to say if going through the game once for 9% will amount to a larger playtime.

I invited him.

No, really.

I really just wanted to reward him for creating possibly the most viewed piece of Metal Gear fandom ever. He also reaches a huge audience, so that doesn't hurt.

I don't, a lot of games give you a not-so-great percentage for doing the bare minimum story mission, with the recent Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition being a prime example (I think you only get around 60% when just beating the game and not collecting stuff) The question of course is if the other 91% will be fun and not pointless. I'm optimistic so I will say yes :)

The lack of a cardboard box on the other hand pretty much invalidates Ground Zeroes not just as a canonical entry in the series. Spinoff confirmed.
