    For all the fervent hatred of Konami that forms the current gaming-hate-bandwagon of choice, based on its own merits, Metal Gear Survive isn’t a terrible game. It’s not a great one for sure, and certainly not near the pedigree we expect from a Metal Gear product, but it’s a serviceable enough survival game that benefits greatly from layering in a few of The Phantom Pain’s systems. It won’t scratch that same itch of sneaky badassery that has made Snake a household name, and it’s almost certainly not worth the full $40 / £35 asking price, but there’s definitely fun to be had here even if it doesn’t come close to troubling the series’ heights.

    The concept of Metal Gear Survive works, but some annoying mechanics and the soullessness diminish the fun.

    The single player, oddly, is the best part of Metal Gear Survive. I say “oddly” because it’s billed as a co-op game primarily. But the online multiplayer is just sort of “Horde Mode”, and we’ve all done that again and again for a decade now.

    Survive rather than a full-featured Metal Gear reminds of a fanfiction, which wants to honour the series. Unfortunately, it gets repetitive very quickly and certainly does not take the right example from its predecessors. [Issue#284]

    All of the issues that I’ve outlined with Metal Gear Survive essentially boil down to one thing: the vast majority of the game feels boring. It takes quite a long time for certain aspects of the game to stop feeling tedious, and its very easy to feel discouraged from playing altogether as it takes so long for the game to feel like its actually going somewhere. If you can be bothered to sit through hours of hunting, completing repetitive missions and accumulating skill points at a painfully slow rate, you’ll eventually feel comfortable enough to focus on the crazy story. If exploration and survival is your cup of tea, this one may be for you. If not, this is not worth your time.

    Metal Gear Survive’s underlying concept is not bad and the game has a couple of good moments, but I can’t recommend it to anyone. It’s best to steer clear of it. [04/2018, p.54]

    Using The Phantom Pain’s engine, its models, animations and other assets, Metal Gear Survive looks like a shoddy fan modification.

If you are into a somewhat demanding survival experience with a Metal Gear base to it, this is for you. It's a fun game on it's own. Will that change the fact many have a vendetta against the game? Nah. Fun co-op though, too. Expand

    So how do I put it... This game is a combination of zombie survival and tactical espionage engine FOX but It makes no sense to mix those twoSo how do I put it... This game is a combination of zombie survival and tactical espionage engine FOX but It makes no sense to mix those two together. We don't need stealth in zombie game especially not in TOWER DEFENSE type of gameplay. Survival means there is not much ammo so they patch in a really basic and crude melee combat system that doesn't do any good, what's worse our character becomes hungry every 5-10 minutes and each time there is an annoying warning that pops up. Crafting and actually this whole game reminds me of game Dead Island just in TPP.
    Graphics - for FOX sake this is FOX engine it will look good right?
    Music and voice acting - same music, reused from previous games, voice acting (and writing) is horrible specially AIs are voiced terribly.
    Multiplayer - Tower Defense with zombies and 5 different maps. Repetitive. But if you liked Mass Effect 3 multiplayer (which I did) you might find it amusing for some time.

    Overall average/below average survival game that has no requirement in stealth whatsoever = 4/10
    BONUS POINTS
    - 2 for "10 dollars for another save slot" and other horrendous microtransactions
    - 1 for Metal Gear tag on it (seriously what the fox guys...?)

    Final verdict 1/10

    I gave this game the baseline 5 points for being a functional game with appropriate graphics with the philosophy that it must earn the rest of it's points through gameplay, story, and achieving what it set out to do. Well, if the goal of this game is to screw over the player fanbase, than I guess I should give this game a 10! Otherwise it gets a 1. for still being a functional game.
