    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.

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..

    My reasons why I do not like Metal Gear Survive:
    1) I do not like online games, and this game forces me to stay online constantly, you can not be offline.
    2) I do not like cooperative multiplayer mode. I did not like that option either in Peace Walker. I prefer to play solo.
    3) I do not like to play zombie games.
    4) It does not look like a Metal Gear game at all - it's not like a predecessor. It just shares the same name.
    5) Microtransactions: you need to pay extra to make a new character or to get an extra save file, also you need to pay extra for some other components. Based on this you can conclude why MG Survive was not sold at full price.
    6) Very bad story, does not make any sense at all.
    7) It's repetitive. Each level is the same: defend the tower from the hordes of zombies.

    These are my seven reasons why I do not like MG Survive. Reasons have nothing to do with Kojima or Konami. The highest rating I can give to this game is 3 out of 10.

    This is the worst spin-off of Metal Gear series. Ghost Babel, Acid, Portable Ops and Rising are much better spin-offs than this game.

    It would be better if Konami completed MGS5 by making several more missions for MGS5 and thus shows how Punished "Venom" Snake formed the Outer Heaven, and thus directly connects the story of MGS5 with the original Metal Gear from 1987. And after completing MGS5, then Konami should make a remake of the original Metal Gear 1 and 2. Then make a remake of Metal Gear Solid 1, 2, 3 and 4 for the PS4. Would also like to see that Konami make a remake of Ghost Babel with Fox Engine, and to make a Metal Gear Rising 2 to show how Raiden became cyborg.

    just another cash graber game with a lot of micro transactions. there is no plot and single player is a joke. what they did with metal gearjust another cash graber game with a lot of micro transactions. there is no plot and single player is a joke. what they did with metal gear franchise is like seeing your best get burned and skinned at the same time and they want money from you to watch it. i knew that it was going to be bad without kujima but i would never imagine someone would be as untalented as the creators of this game. just WOW Expand

We hould all stand strong in solidarity against games that decide to implement various fees for saves, lootboxes, in-game currency, etc.

    If the games aren't making enough money, then devs should raise the retail price and/or sell skins and other cosmetic items in game, and/or use a subscription service that the consumer is well aware of before purchase. Blizzard has been using this system successfully for years.

    All these new added fees are ridiculous. If I buy a game, I expect to be able to use it unreservedly, and without having to spend more to unlock certain parts of it that are hiding behind a pay-wall.

    So for now, no more Konami games for me. At all.

    I'll also be boycotting EA games (ultimate team add-ons tied in to in-game trophies; as well as the Battlefront 2 lootbox debacle) and also Capcom based on Street Fighter 5, which I bought incomplete on release and which tried to sell me the characters that should be in the game.

    I hope I don't have to add Rockstar to the list. But they're walking a very thin line with this whole GTA V online currency situation.

    The point is that if we keep buying, they will keep using these ridiculous stratagems to get our money, instead of working hard to make more games that we could buy. I mean, who could blame them? If we're dumb enough to give them our money, they'd be crazy not to take it!

    But seriously this game is awful. Extremely tedious and annoying. The constant robot voice that annoys you when one of your meters gets low, the zombies are the worst enemies in the world.
    And did I mention this game is the most disrespectful piece of garbage that anyone has ever made? Like how do you take something that is praised so highly for its attention to plot, and makes a zombie survival spinoff of that? What f*ckin dude was like "yea what if we turn the game about corporate tactical espionage into a zombie game because everyone loves zombies 8 years ago.

    Also, there is the option to buy an extra save file for $10. Like 10 real life dollars. You know, the game feature that has been present in games since like the late 1990's. Next game you have to pay $15 for the options menu.
