- We recommend taking these with a pinch of salt given the game has been out for less than 24 hours.

Here are a few nuggets so you can get an idea of the general sentiment (lightly edited for clarity).
From a Kojima fan:
I had faith in this game and Kojima but to be honest the game is so boring and monotonous, the missions are the same, the world is big but empty, the same rocks and grass.
If I want to rescue something of this disaster maybe it would be the the graphics and the story the cinematics are amazing, but again, if I want to watch a movie, I watch a movie. This is supposed to be a video, game not a movie; sorry but this is too boring [as] a movie just that, Kojima dream Is to be a Director of movie.
