    Despite the backlash from fans decrying that Metal Gear Survive isn't a true Metal Gear game, what's available in this $40 package is a hundred-plus hours of one of the most polished survival games to ever make it onto consoles.

    Metal Gear Survive's greatest strength is that it offers many ways to play. Its survival gameplay creates a lot of freedom and variety, but sadly the unsteady co-op experience greatly limits the game's appeal. The story is underwhelming, and the game's overall balance has some problems.

    When it was first announced by Konami and revealed to have not only a survival focus but (gasp!) zombies, a lot of folks, myself included, rolled their eyes at the idea. But after playing and completing Metal Gear Survive, it won me over. It’s an enjoyable, bizarre and flawed creation, and I’m glad it exists.

    Not your typical Metal Gear, but a bold move for the series. Great controls and visuals, bur the survival aspect is not unique and will not appeal to all fans.

    The worst part of Metal Gear Survive is its opening hours.

    Metal Gear Survive is a good idea that finds itself crippled by an overwhelming mob of bad ideas. It’s interesting but ultimately handicapped by a ruthless application of unnecessarily brutal constraints that serves to diminish what should have been a fascinating spin-off.

    Bland and mediocre gameplay. Ludicrous hunger and thirst meters which made this game practically unplayable, not to mention the “always online” feature, are what’s making this game a great candidate to avoid.

    This game is a great attempt at creating a Metal Gear spinoff. (Emphasis on "spinoff"). For anyone that's played TPP, MGO3, and actually hasThis game is a great attempt at creating a Metal Gear spinoff. (Emphasis on "spinoff"). For anyone that's played TPP, MGO3, and actually has enough brainpower to understand that Hideo Kojima did NOT single-handedly create the previous MGS games, you'll absolutely enjoy it. The game is a "horror" version of Metal Gear, with nanomachine zombies. (Yes, the idea that Kojima himself had for a MG spin-off. Let that sink in, fanboys.) The gameplay takes inspiration from MGS3 (Survival elements such as eating wildlife you hunt and having to treat your injuries with medical supplies), and Peace Walker (goofy looking CQC and animations in general). The soundtrack is phenomenal. It sounds much, MUCH closer to the classic MGS style of music. Not that crap from TPP.

    Can't wait to see Death Stranding gameplay. (a.k.a., Metal Gear Survive 2.) I wonder what people will say about that, even if it looks the same as Metal Gear Survive..

    What a bummer. As a fan of both MGS and sandbox survival, I couldn’t believe I hadn’t heard of this title. Just picked it up for $10, and it’sWhat a bummer. As a fan of both MGS and sandbox survival, I couldn’t believe I hadn’t heard of this title. Just picked it up for $10, and it’s not even worth that much. The opener to the game is so brutally slow and nonsensical, it’s like they don’t even want you to play it. Then the robots who narrate everything speak at a snail’s pace, so I’m sure most of the game’s runtime is just listening to them talk. Once you can actually play, the game is interesting for 30 minutes but then reveals itself to be a totally uninspired, repetitive, boring experience. I wasn’t even motivated to get into the base building, and I love that stuff.

    Also... for some reason the MGS world involves portals? And the enemies are a cross between zombies and unicorns that wind up being much more weird than scary? If they wanted to do MGS survival, the recipe seems pretty simple: make it like snake eater, a soldier lost in the forest surrounded by tribal enemies or even zombies. But a totally wacko sci-fi hell portal full of dust storms? I just don’t get any of it.

    This game has nothing to do with Metal Gear other than the name and it is shoehorned into the world of Metal Gear. You get one out of 4This game has nothing to do with Metal Gear other than the name and it is shoehorned into the world of Metal Gear. You get one out of 4 character slots, and each of the other 3 slots costs 10 dollars...yes, 10 dollars PER slot! You also get teams to get you rare items from scavaging missions, but you get one out of 6, and each locked slot is ALSO 10 dollars!!! The grind for items is just booring. Stay away from this title!
