@Th3solution Yeah I also believe this game will be regarded as a classic in the future. I think the issue thus far has been the vocal people who weren't going to buy the game anyway. It's easy to make fun of something that is different and that we completely don't understand because we haven't experienced it yet. Once the game is out and everyone plays it, that's when we'll see what it's truly about.

Well I'm committed now as I have it downloading at the moment, I've not been this excited about a game for some time

It's almost here, and at this point, I am at a loss for words to describe my excitement. I've been following this game since the announcement in 2016, I am also going in blind (as in I haven't read any reviews or watched any new footage other than the ones Kojima Productions published on their YouTube channel) and still don't know what to expect, which is very exciting.

Good luck, y'all.
Sam,

Greatness awaits!

I'm interested to read players feedbacks as well. Personally, I'm not interested in the gameplay since the majority of it is you delivering stuff. I'm not a huge fan of simulator type games. I am however interested in the story and the characters which is why I might get it later down line when it's cheaper.

So I've played a little this morning before coming to work, probably about an hour and a half and a lot of that was cutscenes, I will say that I've not been glued to my TV screen like that in quite some time.

In terms of the actual gameplay almost immediately I was looking at the world differently to any other open world game I've ever played, normally when travelling in these it's a case of where am I going and then heading off in pretty much a straight line, switching your brain off and maybe admiring the scenery. Here I was viewing like I would the real world and thinking about where I am walking, where I'm placing my feet and planning which way to go, for example after picking some extra cargo on the first mission and continuing to my destination I find I'm on the wrong side of what is now a very wide river, so head back upstream for a narrower spot to cross. I'm just at the end of the second delivery quest and its introduced the concept of tools being left behind as I found some useful rope and ladders dotted about and I've really enjoyed these journeys much more than in any other game as just the concept of moving around is much more engaging.

I don't know if I've got my point across but I am loving every second of this game so far

@carlos82 Sounds good! Just got my copy in the mail. But I won't be able to play it until tonight. But I have the TV for myself, so I'm going to play it all night!

I woke up early and spent a couple hours playing before getting the kids up. Not enough to really comment on game play but my goodness this game looks amazing! Better than both Horizon and GOW quite a feat!

Hey, at least this game defaults to subtitles on, that's at least worth a 4/10.

@Octane I'm sure I turned them off but they were still there on the next cutscene so it's a 3 from me 😉

Been playing this game for an hour and it's seriously so intriguing and captivating to watch. I'm absolutely loving it so far.

Just played the first 45 mins or so and I'm gripped so far. The cinematography really is on another level to almost any other game.

The only thing I'm not a huge fan of is the fact that Kojima wants you to know that he made the game, like, every five minutes. Ay first I thought it would make for a good drinking game, but now I'm afraid one wouldn't survive a single play session.

It’s ok - I’m just kicking off chapter 2. I am not smitten as it stands, but I’m interested enough.

Really enjoying the early impressions, people. Thank you! Those of us who are holdouts on buying it are eating these posts up. Looking forward to reading more as people get into the meat of the game this weekend.

So today I got into the meat of the gameplay and honestly, I'm having no issues with it so far. It's actually a lot of fun because there's a high level of involvement with each delivery. If you're carrying too much (more than 50% of the weight limit) then you're going to be constantly shifting the weight from left or right, meaning you need to constantly stay focused as you're traversing. Running downhill is also a bad idea since you can lose your grip, stumble and the packages will take damage, which will net you less rewards.

Moreover, there are numerous factors that you need to take into consideration as you're traversing the world. You need to pay attention to your stamina gauge and drink energy drinks in order to replenish your stamina over time. There are also enemies on the map that will without a doubt kick your butt if you want to attack them head on (at least this early in the game).

This is just the tip of the ice berg in terms of stuff you need to pay attention to in order to make a successful delivery and net as many rewards as possible. At first I thought the gameplay was going to be "boring" as a lot of reviewers have stated because it does sound boring on paper. However, just like with any other Kojima game, the level of depth and complexity of the gameplay system is just incredible. Even in a "simple" game like this, there are tons of different things you can do in order to improve your performance. The game can get quite difficult too, especially if you run into enemies or are not careful around ledges or even when you're running and you hit a wall, which will damage your goods.

I haven't even talked about the social aspect of dropping items in the world for other people to use and finding lost cargo in between the main missions which will force you to think carefully in regards to how much you're willing to carry versus the risk that comes with doing so. More packages means more difficult traversal, but it will save you time from having to do multiple trips back and forth. These aspects really make the game more strategic.

I know that it's still the beginning of the game for me, but I can't see how this gets repetitive in the future since there are still so many more gameplay mechanics that haven't been introduced to me yet but that we've seen from the trailers. The different terrains are also going to force you to change strategies, so the game will constantly keep you on your toes.

@KratosMD you've summed it up pretty well there, I've made several trips and I really don't see myself getting bored with this at all. If anything I've been more engaged on every journey on this game than I ever have in an open world game. With you really having to pay attention to the landscape as you work your way through, now all of a sudden things like rivers aren't just there to look pretty but a challenging obstacle that you have to think about when trying to cross.

The social aspect is great as I'm seeing lots of signs and such appear all around and today its giving me notifications of of others using my bridges and such. I like how outside of the first city there is already a distinct path forming as players are heading out on their adventures and I'm curious to see how far this element goes.

I truly believe we will be looking back at this title in a few years as perhaps the first that really changed how open worlds are created and this sense that the world itself can be the challenge
