More Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain reviews are coming to light, the latest being from Spanish gaming magazine HobbyConsolas. Based on a post from a Spanish forum, NeoGAF managed to translate some of the major positives and negatives.

The magazine awards The Phantom Pain a score of 97 out of 100. While the Spanish translation isn’t too good in the game, the magazine also claims it’s “Not as moving as other MGS titles.” Then again, the reviewer also states that the plot twists will “destroy all expectations and will be a big conversation subject in the community.” He then goes on to call this the “best stealth game yet” though the fact that he’s a big MGS fan could be a factor here.

As for the review itself, Twitter user M4n recently revealed the scan with the final review score and the scoring for various aspects of the same. The scan can be found here. Update: Furthermore, a Reddit user translated the entire review which gives away few interesting new details about the game: Sometimes during the game, the player will be given two options depending on what you select you may or may not meet certain characters. Furthermore, the game’s soundtracks from 1980s may make you cry and get emotional over it and a script capable of moving you to tears.

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain will be out on September 1st for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and PC.

    of course won’t be as moving because it’s not David Hayter’s voice we’ll be hearing.

      not necessarily. I have played all the games and honestly when 4 and PeaceWalker came out, I felt Hayter’s gruffy voice to be almost parodying itself. In the first three MGS games it was good, but 4 and PeaceWalker I just couldn’t take his voice seriously. Plus, Sutherland is an awesome actor, and if fans are worried it’s not Hayter, I mean, he is turning a character we know and love into a bad guy, so maybe it’s better that he’s not Hayter.

      I’ve played them all too except for Portable Ops, Acid, and GZ. I didn’t get that impression but I’ll say it definitely sounded older as time went by of course. I liked how he did in all the games. Yeah not to say Sutherland doesn’t have the creds for it but I just didn’t expect him to do it especially with how different the voice is. But yeah I suppose in that respect it makes sense that his personality and body are changing so his voice might as well also. Yeah better to remember him as he was with a different voice than having to constantly be reminded with that same voice I guess.

      Well you know in 4 his voice was supposed to reflect his age right? Snake was only 42 but had the body of a 70 year old. That’s why hayter used that voice. As for PW yeah he used a little to much gruff especially since big boss was only 39

      Funny enough, I actually liked his performance best in Peacewalker. MGS 3 sounded a little strange to me (although it may have had to do with the intentionally of dubbing since everyone was apparently speaking in Russian), and maybe it was just the way MGS4’s script had him constantly repeating the last two words somebody said so we’d remember he was there during the massive monologues. I think the whole motion comic format really lent to David’s strengths though. Kiefer is primarily a live action actor who is used to using his entire body, whereas David I tend to prefer as a voice actor. While I don’t think his physical performances are up there, David Hayter does a great job capturing the entire character in the voice. From what I understand the primary reasoning Kojima gave for the switch was that Big Boss wouldn’t be having a lot of lines in the game, and he needed someone with better facial expression for the motion capture. Think what you will, but I think Kiefer works better for this particular instance mostly because of his experience as a physical actor. I’m still crossing my fingers for a Hayter cameo in the game though. Crossing so hard…

    Spanish is my native language and I can tell you that the reviewer didn’t said that it would “destroy all expectations”, but rather “destroy all schemes” meaning that it’s a different kind of plot twist from the ones that we have seen before in the series. He also listed that a pro so don’t worry too much about that.

    • Robert Harvey

      Thanks for that! I was perplexed by them saying “destroy expectations”. I’m in two minds as to whether to look at the review or not.. I don’t see how it can simultaneously be “Not as moving as other MGS titles”, yet “a script capable of moving you to tears”.

    • Tom Maxey

      He might of meant by ‘not as detailed as the previous mgs games’ where as there are cassete tapes filled with complex story elements just like the tapes from ground zeroes a peace walker so we’ll have to wait a see.

    The chills…
