    Great, challenging Survival game

    Let's get a couple things out of the way. The title of the game says it all: "Metal Gear SURVIVE", meaning this is a survival game with a Metal Gear backdrop that borrows its art style, gameplay mechanics and some story/items. So you're in an alternate world that you got to via wormhole and it's a desert. You have to hunt for food so you don't starve, gather water so you don't go thirsty. The more well-fed you are the better you perform in combat and activity. If you eat some bad food or drink bad water, you get sick and that reflects in your performance, sometimes you can throw up in intervals in the middle of a fight, until you create your own medicine to help with it. There are other ailments as well that affect you in different ways. That's the type of game this is. You have to take care of yourself in every step, you have to survive. You start off with a sharp pole that you lunge at zombie-acting infected soldiers. You progress and find ways to build your own weapons and a base to keep out the infected. Every mission introduces something new and so the campaign is like a big tutorial for people who are going to continue playing the game. Post-game you unlock more things like different classes and you then you can go online and use everything you have learned to play a PvE zombie base defense mode. They are going to add more content updates and probably modes in the future. It keeps pulling me back in. The combat is good and you are at many moments hanging on by a thread, meaning it can be difficult and my character died numerous times in the first few hours and I see that it will continue to happen as I get better. There is definitely different skill ceilings in this game and it rewards people who play more. I recommend it if you're looking for a survival game that is single-player and multiplayer. I don't recommend if you are upset because it's not a Metal Gear Solid main entry game and you were looking for something like that or something with a deep story.

    A strange but fun game

    I'm not sure why this was made under the Metal Gear name since it seems to have nothing to do with Metal Gear canon, but the gameplay is undeniably fun. It plays like a Metal Gear game, just with a bizarre story that seems to have nothing to do with previous Metal Gear games. It is difficult, but I found myself enjoying the challenge. May be a little too difficult (sometimes unfairly so) to recommend fully.

    I might be wrong but I think the entire game takes place on the same map over and over and over again. I have around 12 hours playing and I don’t see any progress at all. Just grinding and looking for stuff. Nothing big, Konami really wasted this franchise after kicking kojima out. This game is definitely not worth it

    Not your typical MGS

    Crafting, survival, and base building is the name of the game. Don't expect traditional metal gear gameplay here except for some of the survival bits from MGS3. This is like dragon quest builders. Know what you're getting into beforehand and you may be pleasantly surprised.

    Not Very Good

    This isn't a very good game. I'm always hungry and thirsty and running out of oxygen. Then there's the game. If you like running around a lot and collecting wood and plants then maybe this is for you, but I prefer shooting plants in the face.

    The game takes you to a open world, gathering supplies for many quests for crafting weapons, food, and building materials to support home base. This game has many hours of enjoyment and exploration to accomplish this long playing game.

    Its a wave based game with crafting system in the game. I had fun during the beta, glad its only $40 and not $60. I recommend it for those that like survival games or defense tower games.

    Great survival game with the Metal Gear gameplay. You must build, craft weapons and grow food to survive all with the zombies trying to get you.

    Is it really a Metal Gear game? I am not sure myself. I have played a few hours but watched more vidoes than gameplay. But I only payed $20 for this game and it is "ok".

    It is a compelling and intriguing game. Metal Gear done very differently and for good reason if you read into the games backstory.

    My son bought this game and has enjoyed it. It's different then other Metal Gear solid games, making it unique. If you are impatient this game is not for you.

    Feels like a return to the more technical style of metal gear. Not the foolish action run and gun of V. Got MG Survive to play co-op with friends.

    Huge fan of metal gear series, but this is not metal gear. Boring. Monotonous. Repetitive. But beautiful graphics and fluid controls
