Even with its budget price in mind, though, we can’t recommend Metal Gear Survive to anyone, perhaps especially those that consider themselves dedicated fans of the franchise. The game flatout fails to capture the Metal Gear spirit, and while it has some positive qualities, they aren’t enough to redeem it. Those that manage to stick with the game for the long haul may end up enjoying it a bit more than others, but most Metal Gear Survive players may find it difficult to force themselves through its tortuous beginning hours.
They'll sell 'em to ya, no problem. It has all the trappings of a game that should probably be free-to-play, but Konami is asking $40 for it up front. That's a bad deal. After Phantom Pain was released and the split between publisher Konami and series creator Hideo Kojima became public, some folks lamented that we'd never see another game on Konami's Fox Engine ever again. Be careful what you wish for, I guess.
Metal Gear Survive is a far cry from any other game released prior in the series, but that doesn't make it any less compelling. So it's up to you: either cling on to the notion that Metal Gear Survive is a terrible cash-in and miss out on an interesting adventure, or put your misconceptions aside and jump right in and have some fun. I know what I'd do.
