    Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes Is Short. Really Short.

    source

    The prologue to Metal Gear Solid V comes out next month, and if you're expecting a nice chunk of Snake's story to keep you occupied until the full game is done, you should probably know that it's short. Really short.
    Game Informer got their hands on a near-final build of Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes for their March cover story, and they say they beat the game's main mission (not including side quests or special console-exclusive missions) in less than two hours. Less than two hours!
    "Judged just by the core story mission, Ground Zeroes is short," Game Informer writes in the cover story (only available in the magazine, not online). "We completed it in just less than two hours."1
    (For the full preview, check out this month's Game Informer.)

    Why Metal Gear Solid V's Prologue Is Sold Separately

    The first part of Metal Gear Solid V wasn't always going to be on next-gen consoles--in fact, series creator Hideo Kojima says it could have… Read…



    Ground Zeroes is out on March 18 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. It's designed as a prologue to MGSV—because Hideo Kojima wanted to give people something to play while they wait for the next entry in his stealth-action series—but it isn't cheap: the last-gen version is $20 digital and $30 physical; the current-gen version is $30 digital and $40 physical.
    Of course, it's unfair to get judgmental before we actually get our hands on this thing; this could be the best damn two hours of gameplay we've ever seen. Stellar experiences like Journey and Gone Home are also really short. But I imagine most people expected a little more from a big-budget production like Ground Zeroes.
    $40 demo....is this what its coming to?

    There better be side content or something, else this just makes konami and co look pathetic. $40 for 2 hours? I've passed $15 games for being that short.

    I never intended to buy it at launch, was always going to wait for a discount or a "MGS 5: Complete Edition". Now my wait will be even longer ($10-ish instead of $25-ish)

    That's the pre order cancelled (£30!) and Tomb Raider bought. And to think I was kinda sticking up for this in other posts saying that the length wouldn't be too bad etc, consider myself $#@!slapped. This will be bargain bin before we know it at this price.

    Thanks for the post, saved me wasting my money

    Nope, those games were 4 hours. Twice the length of this game. Plus online MP is the focus of those games.

    Definitely not BF4, that $#@! deletes your savedata so you have to do it again (Kidding BF4 fans... I do love the game but couldn't help myself)

    so true. Sony/EA needs to figure that crap out.

    But then again, I am using deleted saved data as an opportunity to do Platinum run.

    Wow, considering Infamous comes 3 days later I'm skipping this one completely. 40 Euro for less then 2 hours is to much. I'll wait for the inevitable box set with Phantom Pain.

    If true the no thanks. I'll wait for a complete edition (bundle with Phantom Pain) at a reasonable price. This is some stupid $#@!.

    Well, i was solid on this until i heard. Maybe the grounded appeal of the story will excite me for this game. I am having Zero capacity to welcome it just yet

    Were people really expecting it to be much longer? It was made very clear that this is just a prologue to familiarize people with the new open world gameplay.

    It's essentially like the Tanker mission in MGS2 and the Virtuous mission in MGS3.
