Metal Gear Survive aligns itself with too many corporate gaming shenanigans to register as unadulterated fun.
The irony here is that the more control it supposedly affords Hope, the worse the game itself functions.
The game places trust in the moral, philosophical, and intellectual response of the audience.
An impressive epic, even if it falls several steps shy of the open-world grandeur realized by The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
No matter how much C4 you pick up, players can’t escape the confines of Camp Omega, nor from the most expensive demo ever built.
Unlocking deadlier tactics as you progress broadens your range of aristocratic assassination even further, and the endlessly appealing Blade Mode adds yet another layer of ruthless refinement.
One glaring misfortune remains with the PlayStation 3 version of this HD Collection, and that is the game-collapsing defect found within the already generally subpar Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demo.
The gameplay for all of these games is still tight and responsive after all these years. Characters such as Raiden, Big Boss, Otacon, and Snake are just as engaging as well.
