If you were excited to see all the boss battles in the game and rush through just to see them in action, then you might be let-down as some of the MGS5 reviews stated that the featured fights feels underwhelming.

According to PasterMagazine, a particular boss battle in the game feels monotonous and will not render you a sense of gratification upon victory: ?There?s at least one fight you?ll grind it out with almost every weapon and item in your inventory. In another battle, you?ll die a dozen times only to realize the boss? weakness was in plain sight. And there?ll be the boss fight where you?ll end up victorious due to a borderline exploit.?
