Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain box art
Name: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
Release date: September 1, 2015
Platforms: PC, XONE, PS4, X360, PS3
Genre: Stealth

Description

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is an action-adventure stealth game developed by Kojima Productions and published by Konami. It is a sequel to Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. It is set in Soviet-occupied Afghanistan, where Snake goes to exact revenge on people who destroyed his forces and almost killed him.

The game is set in an open-world of Afghanistan and Africa, with a heavy emphasis on stealth elements. Players then complete missions, usually assassination or infiltration. Snake can call upon AI companions, like Quiet or D-Horse. It also has a base building system, where players can craft new weapons and items.

Recommendation

Metal Gear Solid is a beloved game, and rightly so - from the open world with tense missions that keep you at the edge of your seat, to the story that is rich with detail and isn't afraid to explore heavy themes. Its also an expansive game, with a large open world filled with missions, ability to customize your base, and many other things. The stealth gameplay is also very solid, with the bright light forcing you to adopt very different tactics.

Key store recommendations

Key resellers are sites that sell game keys at (usually) much lower prices than traditional retailers. They do this through a combination of ways, like selling keys that come in a bundle, that were on a sale and many other ways.

The reason why we separated them from traditional retailers is that these stores have been the subject of a divisive discussion for a long time.

The reason we include them is that you can buy keys on these sites usually for very big discounts, sometimes quite ridiculously cheap. In 99 % of cases, they will work the same as a much more expensive key would. For many people, especially people from countries with lower standards of living, this can mean big savings that have a significant impact on their life, while also playing the game and not resorting to piracy.

If you are buying on these stores, we have a few recommendations to follow:

  1. Just know there is a tiny risk. Either your purchase will fail and you will use your money, or that the key you recieved won't work. It has never happened to us or anyone we know, but it has certainly happened to a number of people on the internet. That is partly the nature of the business, partly un-consumer business practices of some of the stores. In 99.9 % of cases, the purchase will be ok, but sometimes it won't.
  2. If the price is not cheaper on key stores (it almost always is, though), then we recommend to buy from the traditional, established retailers.
  3. If it is a store with multiple sellers with ratings, always pick the one with the highest number of sold keys and ratings. The probability of a successful purchase is much higher if buying from a reputable key seller.
