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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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