    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.

    This unlikely Front Mission spin-off's occasional charm can't make up for its seriously broken fundamentals.

    Left Alive is a clunky disaster whose good ideas are undercut by horrible gameplay.

    Left Alive is Metal Gear Solid fan fiction gone horribly, horribly wrong...It's cheap, ugly, hideous, boring, broken, and not worthy of anybody's time.

    I've been playing the game for a long time.
    I got to finish it recently.
    And I noticed how it attracted useless criticism in most cases based only on its visual aspect.
    Furthermore, there are numerous Bots that give many votes 0 a day in a really childish way, quite sad, and very pathetic for them ....
    Since they don't even play the game.
    I feel very satisfied as a player.
    And those who only enjoy shoveling mud and **** on a game for fun should seriously change their hobby.

    This game was an amazing experience.
    The first 2/3 chapters start more slowly to give a lot of information about tutorials and the game
    This game was an amazing experience.
    The first 2/3 chapters start more slowly to give a lot of information about tutorials and the game world.
    But when you begin to settle into the atmosphere of the plot the game captures you and always intrigues you more and more.
    From my point of view, if a game manages to capture me thanks to its narrative compartment in an adventure like this, even with its high value of challenge that brought me enormous satisfaction in the strategies that I have carried out with success, sometimes saving even some people, then the game is saved.

    And thanks to these qualities, that represent the only reason why I still play video games, I can say with certainty that Left Alive is a good game at the end.
