Is Metal Gear Survive worth it? Oh yeah, totally. Game of the Year. Honestly, I don't know why you haven't bought it yet! Death Stranding won't be able to compete with this. Sarcasm aside, don't buy this game, just don't. Yeah, the environments and visuals are kind of neato and the feeling of helplessness certainly comes across, but it's just a clusterfuck.

Has flickers of brilliance, but the painfully slow and gruelling survival simulation routinely snuffs them out.

So much of Metal Gear Survive is repeating the same thing over and over again in single- and multiplayer. Defending the same points from the same zombies. Exploring the same zones for the same materials. Mining the same resources for the same small amounts of gear. But after learning the ropes and learning to set your own personal goals within that loop, there's an odd comfort in the formula, and I can see myself returning to expand my end-game base out of my own completionist urges. Survive might not compare well to the tactical espionage action that's defined the Metal Gear series we know and love, but its oddly hit-or-miss combo of some solid old ideas and some clumsy new ones has at least some appeal.

Metal Gear's first post-Kojima outing plays fast and loose with the formula, with results that are equal parts brilliant and baffling.

A decent survival game with a rewarding, if uninspired, grind to its resource collecting and base management.

Not the Metal Gear fans will be used to in terms of either quality or action. But despite a few interesting highlights, it's just too boring to get very angry about.

Metal Gear Survive has plenty to do, but the story mode is a dud and the endgame loops don't hold up

There's a weird, enjoyable story in Metal Gear Survive for players who make it past the game's grueling opening hours, and there are flashes of a great survival game. But with a threadbare connection to the 30-year history of Metal Gear and a comparatively shallow game made in the shadow of The Phantom Pain, it's hard to recommend enduring the whole thing.

Metal Gear Survive's punishing systems drag down what could have been a good survival game

Metal Gear Survive's team managed to make a game both bad to play and fascinating to examine. Survive finds itself in small moments but is lost to grinding, mindless gameplay.

Metal Gear Survive is both a bad survival game and a bad Metal Gear game.

With some tweaks and changes, Survive could be great, but as it stands, it's just good.

Metal Gear Survive should have been a free-to-play game just like Grasshopper's Let it Die or an actual Metal Gear release. It doesn't accomplish either aim.

If Konami would have introduced Metal Gear Survive as an entirely new title, and marketed it better, it would likely be a Spring hit. However, slapping Metal Gear on it weirdly makes it have this generic feel.

It's a sad truth that still puts a put in my stomach, but Kojima and Konami are done. Konami still owns the Metal Gear name though, and they still want to make video games for it. Please let them. A new Hollywood reboot of your favorite franchise does not retroactively ruin the quality of the old movies, and Metal Gear Survive does not suddenly make the Metal Gear Solid series any less brilliant. Metal Gear Survive, instead, stands alongside those as perhaps the strongest spinoff in the franchise to date. Metal Gear Solid as we know it may be finished, but after having so much fun with Survive, I'm excited to see what Metal Gear looks like in the future.

Behind a cloud of dust formed with controversy and bad decisiones hides a zombie survival game thats highly enjoyable. It's far from the level of quality of past Metal Gear games (particularly the script), but we would be lying if we said we didn'dt had a lot of fun with it.

Konami takes a chance with Metal Gear Survive and focuses on delivering a game with the same base, but different type of genre. A risky bet that has its innovative moments, but fails to completely entertain and has a lot of monotone moments. .

It's an interesting and wholly engrossing exercise in survival that I enjoyed more with every hour that passed. Don't go into the game looking for any sort of Metal Gear gratification, and you'll come out relatively pleased with what's on offer.

If it had not been called Metal Gear Survive, this survival game would have been received in another way. However, many of the questionable decisions such as micropayments or permanent connection tarnish a remarkable gameplay based on The Phantom Pain.
