    I take it from a lack of anything that this is a whole load of 'meh'?

    In fairness i'm part of that 'meh' as i haven't exactly rushed to download it let alone try it :D

    Kotaku has a decent article: Metal Gear Survive is Hardcore to a Fault

    tl;dr great MGSV base, over complex survival mechanics and busy-work, lacks (Kojima) soul. People have moved onto PUBG like survival games, so Survive feels dated.

    Loaded it up for the first time this morning. Spent a bit of time on the character customisation screen then started the game. After a few minutes I kind of thought that I'd spent more time creating my character than actually playing the game. You spawn in with a handgun, spear and machete and I though that you'd be able to pick other gear up ingame but you can't. Went back to the base screen afterwards and had a look around and was able to equip an assault rifle, sawn off shotgun and a bow and arrows.

    Actually kind of enjoying it now but won't be paying anymore than a tenner for it if I ever do buy it

    Got the game on Thursday and really enjoying it so far. First few hours are a bit frustrating until you get the survival bow and the ability to purify water but overall it's very good .
    Campaign actually feels a bit like fallout hardcore mode as you have to keep an eye on your food and water intake ( and oxygen levels for the areas covered in dust clouds)
