Metal Gear Survive – It Is Shit (Jimpressions)

Metal Gear Survive is here, and it’s worse than I expected.

I thought they’d at least TRY and make it feel like Metal Gear, but instead it truly is a derivative, irritating, bog-standard survival game.

There was so much rubbish to laugh at I forgot to even mention the microtransactions!

See this is what worries me more. When Jim started doing Jimpressions I was concerned that his jimpressions would be lazy as konamis metal gear survive. I feel this review is an example of that fear come to pass. It’s a lazy bias impression which is more concerned on what the game isn’t and how it compares to the metal gear series. We know it’s not that game and we have that game (free on psn) and konami isn’t the company it was. We know that zombies are meant to be dumb as they have no brain or eyes and… Read more »

Meanwhile (since Jim isn’t really into talking about good games (doesn’t generate the page views)), the survival-crafting game Subnautica is great! Even Yahtzee liked it. So go play that instead of this rubbish.

Addendum: and if you have the chance, play it in VR, the sense of scale is something you just can’t get on a monitor.

Also, I think it’s worth mentioning, as it wasn’t brought up in the video; Instead of any review embargo, they just made the game unable to start without a day one patch and the servers activated after release, due to its’ online-only requirement. Meaning that even 3 days after release, review outlets are STILL working on their reviews and only one has been officially uploaded to metacritic so far. It’s so fucking shady, I’m surprised it hasn’t been brought up earlier to be honest. Oh, then there’s the part that you have to buy any extra saves if you want… Read more »

last ditch effort from konami, to grab as much it can off the metal gear name before forever banishing it in pachinko hell

What’s most bizarre about this game, is that if they replaced all the zombie graphics with Chinese soldiers and the background for China. It might actually make for a decent 4 player online coop Dynasty Warriors 9 game. At the very least, I’d love to see a Chinese solider humping a wall.

Those graphics also look really bad; so washed out, fuzzy and undetailed (low resolution textures). Or is that just the what YouTube has done to the footage?

Apparently, the one of the lead developers didn’t want to call this a Metal Gear game. He knew that it would draw ire from fans of the series, and wanted this to be a separate IP. Doesn’t change that it’s not that good a game. But it’s the difference between “bored” and “pissed.” Has Jim ever talked about Subnautica? I have tried several survival games, and the sticking point for me has always been babysitting by bars. Plus procedurally generated content usually means generic content. Subnautica is the only survival game I’ve been able to stand. The world is handcrafted,… Read more »

I didn’t expect that this would be worth playing, but Jesus wept, that looks like a game made by febrile children. Even with Jim’s excellent dialogue I was seized by a kind of existential boredom. It even fails to be hypnotic, it’s just… ugh.

Thanks for playing it Jim, so we don’t ever have to.
