5 things you're going to love about Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Hideo Kojima has his name written all over Metal Gear Solid V.  Literally - it flashes up half a dozen times in the opening credits of his espionage swan song.

The biggest MGS to date, The Phantom Pain takes players back in the story of snakes and soldiers, to 1984 - trotting Venom Snake (Big Boss) around the giant dustbowls of Afghanistan and further afield, as he quests for revenge against the faction that took out his army and put him in a coma.

A masterful slice of stealth action, the final chapter of Metal Gear Solid is a worthy conclusion to the famed franchise. Having played our way through a good portion of the game, these are five aspects of Phantom Pain's experience that we think you're going to love.
