The sloppy narrative and poor character building would be a drag in any game, but being part of an illustrious franchise, Metal Gear Survive is going to be harshly judged in comparison to its ancestors. I was able to get past it because I enjoyed the fundamental gameplay enough, but those who were solely in for the Metal Gear connection are going to be salty.
If nothing, it would have at the very least made the game feel like Metal Gear. Ultimately, Survive lacks the magic of Metal Gear games because it’s pretending to be one when it could have easily been its own thing. It’s a good game but really, this is not a Metal Gear game, not even a spin-off.
Metal Gear Survive feels like a prototype, an idea on paper that was quickly turned into a game and strapped to a retail rocket without proper consideration of what the Metal Gear name means to people. Konami has every right to use the IP and FOX Engine tool of course, and frankly there’s no reason not to. Kojima didn’t make all the Metal Gear games by himself.
