Looks like some TPP review scores have begun to roll in. Spanish magazine Hobby Consolas has scored The Phantom Pain 97/100. Apparently under "The Bad," one of the points is that the game is "not as exciting as previous games, and does not close the saga as we'd like." Also, I should note that this tweet was retweeted by Kojima, so it's legit. I guess for some reason he didn't mind that this broke the review embargo?
So, begin the review score thread! Also, for obvious reasons, no spoilers in this thread please.
Seems that people are unanimously saying that the gameplay is the best Metal Gear has ever had. The PS4 version, which it seems most reviews are based on, runs silky smooth and has very minimal load times. The biggest complaint from most reviewers seems to be that the story is sparse, and is handled clumsily at some points. The game is structured very similarly to Peace Walker. Polygon says that Mother Base is extremely important, and must be managed to ensure success within the game. Greg Miller has played 55 hours and is at 49% completion, so this game will definitely be 100-110 hours long for full completion. GameTrailers mentioned that they beat the main story in 40 hours. Peter Brown mentioned that "pacing issues towards the end of the game momentarily halt your momentum."
