Slow to get into the action and lacking slightly in plot, Metal Gear Survive is more about surviving starvation than enemies, making it one of the less memorable editions in the franchise.
Highly detailed; Usual Metal Gear quirks
Slowly paced; Too much emphasis on crafting
As recent Metal Gear games go, Survive is one of the less memorable additions. There are bits and pieces that shine through, with attention to detail being one of them. Heavy on gathering and crafting, the action is too few and far between for regular fans of the franchise, with the engrossing large-scale battles and boss fights missing for the most part.
