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.
