I have to ask, are you being sarcastic or not? I have been a huge MGS fan but can’t keep up with all the rhetoric around Konami and whatnot. I am tempted to buy this game especially at this price... as a huge MGS fan, I do hope this is real and will bite, thanks.
Not sarcasm at all. I'm a huge MGS fan - have been for nearly 20 years - and I've put about 100+ hours into Survive. The post-game single-player content is a bit of a slog, but multiplayer is fun, and the dev team has been showing terrific support since launch, with bug fixes, tweaks, and additional content being delivered with every Tuesday update. They already had a new game mode, and the first event is ending tomorrow...they have a new difficulty for multiplayer coming this month (Hard is too easy, especially as you approach the level cap), which is likely to include new items as rewards and potentially a level cap increase (maybe new abilities, too).
My only real gripes with the game are a few QoL improvements I would like to see with crafting (ie. Let me craft-to-fill items in my inventory, instead of one at a time...currently only ammo can be crafted in large quantities), and I think the way single player Base Digs (post-game stuff) operate is BS. You have 2-4 waves that are 24 hours apart, with the only way to speed them up being to use the SV Coin currency. So, for the higher-level digs, you need 4 consecutive days where you can play at the same time. If you are not logged on and in single player when the timer hits 0, the dig is done automatically, which a lot of players have had issues with due to their defense numbers being more than sufficient, but their base is torn to shreds anyways. I think you should be able to do the waves as you see fit, and then the entire dig should have a cooldown of several days, to prevent farming too much (which is essentially the purpose of the 24 hour countdown...that, and to encourage you to use SV Coins)
But overall, the game is excellent
