Still haven’t played Metal Gear Survive? Make sure to read our review. PlayStation LifeStyle’s Tyler Treese notes that despite its flaws, the game offers a captivating adventure with fun gameplay.
Konami has taken the series in yet another new direction, but one that also feels in line with a lot of the series’ past. It’s still very much a Metal Gear game down to its story, which might be more out there than some of Kojima’s own, even if it doesn’t quite match them narratively. Embrace the bleakness of reality and simply try to survive.
