A sneaky surprise of a game. An absolute treat that feels like Nintendo loosening up a little and experimenting with their characters and worlds once again. I look forward to what they're cooking up next. Give Toad a go, you won't regret it.
A bold and inventive new take on Metal Gear Solid that placates rather than fills the appetite. As billed, Ground Zeroes is merely a prologue to the true sequel, The Phantom Pain. Enjoyment will rely on expectations and on how invested you are in the overarching story of the various Snakes.
Nintendo and Sega should really use these two mascots to do something more interesting together. There's a glimmer of fun here, and still hope for the series' future, as long as they leave badly implemented motion controls at the door next time.
