Xbox Games with Gold for May includes Vanquish, Metal Gear Solid V
Microsoft has unveiled its Xbox Games with Gold line-up for May, and it’s a good ‘un, headlined by Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and Platinum’s stupendous Vanquish.
The Phantom Pain is available from May 16th to June 15th on Xbox One, and really needs no introduction; Hideo Kojima’s final Metal Gear Solid game is a rich, generous, and phenomenally well-designed slab of free-form open world stealthing, positively dizzying in its gleeful flexibility.
Eurogamer contributor Rich Stanton took on reviewing duties for The Phantom Pain, describing it as “the kind of game where every hand-polished element slots together into a head-spinningly ambitious structure and they combine into something you can only call visionary”.
