LEFT ALIVE - 14 Minutes Of "Through The Warzone" Gameplay

    Left Alive is a bundle of genuinely brilliant ideas, let down by frequently shoddy execution. A resoundingly anti-war war game, with a deep understanding of the way that war complicates personal and societal morality, Left Alive asks all the right questions that a game about war should. It also does a great job of making that sense of survival as desperate as it should. If only there was the technical competence behind it, to support those great ideas.

    Left Alive has many good ideas. Some of them are well-executed and many others are not. It’s a shame that many of these issues are on the gameplay side, but if you really like the concept, you can manage to enjoy it.

    Unfortunately, Left Alive ends up being the heir of a period of Japanese development that we thought was extinct. Neither its stealth nor its shootings convince.

    I’d stay as far away from Left Alive as possible. For all of you hardcore Front Mission fans hoping for a proper sequel in the series, you can bury those hopes and dreams. With a team consisting of so much talent behind it, I truly wonder what went wrong with Left Alive. I love Square Enix games to death typically but this is frankly unacceptable…and it’s $60.

    Left Alive’s half-baked nature feels like a real pity because quite a few elements of the game are actually really interesting.

    With so many narrative, technical and gameplay issues that pop up at almost every turn — all wound up within some of the worst third-person stealth mechanics imaginable — Left Alive is both a horridly-conceived experience and a fundamentally unenjoyable product to even attempt to immerse one’s self in.

    In a few days, once the papers are about to finish it, Left Alive will return to anonymity from the beginning, carrying with it the secret of its existence. Thanks to it, we remembered the charisma of PlayStation's Front Mission years ago and how incredible Metal Gear is on so many aspects. An incomprehensible and catastrophic attempt to survive and infiltrate, bad on all fronts, Left Alive deserves now to rest in peace.

    Today too often there are very simplified games, to go against the needs of everyone, but this game is an exception.

    Left Alive brought me back to a level of challenge and difficulty, which I now found only in the real Dark Souls games.
    Proposing a really high rate of trust, an engaging storyline, and the mechanics that appear to be sufficiently defined to be able to embroider an experience worthy of this kind of games.

    A remarkable experience from the beginning to the end.
    This game is able to leave you with a sense of high satisfaction.
    Which happens to me only with the most difficult challenges. As with the most complex bosses in the Dark Souls saga.
    The plot is good, and the soundtrack turns out to be really impressive in some situations.
    Beautiful, fulfilling, it is with excellent ideas for a large narrative story.
    I feel fortunate to have played today in a game that contains, in such a complex way, those characteristics that make it one of the undervalued masterpieces of this generation.

    I am extremely surprised by the super low metascore and also by the unreasonably high user score of this game . I mean the game has someI am extremely surprised by the super low metascore and also by the unreasonably high user score of this game . I mean the game has some potential and some interesting elements if was not for some of its obvious issues it could really be a good game in many ways . Now on the other hand the game has some really bad graphics for a 2019 game which is not even indie considering that it is published by square enix which is simply unacceptable . Also the game is plagued by some really clanky controls and a quite mediocre shooting system so i just cant believe that 1336 people here havent noticed those problems Expand
