Metal Gear Solid 5 AMD vs Nvidia Performance Review with ASUS

Control Options

Nvidia Metal Gear Solid V Game Ready Drivers Released

Control Options

 

One thing that is always a sign of a good PC port is fully customisable keyboard and mouse controls. PC Gaming is about options, the ability to change the visual and the gameplay experience to what is most suitable to you and your hardware.

While during my few hours of playing the game I had no issues whatsoever while playing using a keyboard and mouse, though this does not mean that others wouldn't like to customise their loadout.    

Thankfully this game does not suffer from what I like to call consollitis with it's controls, meaning that no two controls are bound to the same key, which is very nice. I personally find it very irritating when a single button serves multiple purposes, simply because I have a full keyboard at my disposal.

With Metal Gear Solid previously being a console exclusive franchise the game is pretty much expected to be playable with a controller on PC. In the Controller options Menu you will be given a choice between two default controller modes, but sadly does not have the same level of customization as the Keyboard and mouse controls.

Here you can choose between the game's default "Action Type" mode and the game's "Shooter Type" mode. Sadly this only changes 4 buttons in the game, but I honestly find the games basic controls to be very usable.

With many PC gamers using a PS4 or PS3 controller with their gaming PCs it would have been nice to see the option to change the controller prompts to PlayStation appropriate button prompts. This is something that is very rare to find in PC games, but it is nonetheless a welcome option.

All in all this game controls very well, with bot the game's controller and keyboard and mouse controls being very easy to learn and master. 

User of traditional PC keyboard and mouse controls will be very glad to see that they have the ability to fully rebind their controls, though Controller users will not find quite that much customisability.

Nice article thanks. Good to know my Fury X will be good at 4k, too.

Shame about the 60 FPS cap but I'm on 60hz so it doesn't matter to me Quote

Seems to be extremely well optimized, Still need to finished Ground Zeros perfectly for the PP save import feature for the extras but it's good to know it will perform well

Shame you couldn't test a Fury X and 980 Ti at 4K Quote

Didn't need to, based off the 980/fury you would know they both would cap the 60fps limit basically 24/7
Very impressive for AMD considering this is a Gameworks title. They must have tried to get them on a more even playing field due to the apparent extensive optimizations they did.Quote

Not a Gameworks title bud, The only thing Nvidia about it is the splash screen at startup, Zero amounts of Gameworks going on Quote
