‘Metal Gear’ is undoubtedly the best stealth-action gaming franchise known to man. Therefore, high expectations are typically placed upon other franchises looming under its long shadow. Unfortunately, ‘Left Alive’ was simply left in the dark. Set within the highly popular ‘Front Mission,’ the game mixed stealth and urban terrains with its mech combat. Unfortunately, ‘Left Alive’ suffered from poor mission structures, bland level design, frame rate issues, wonky combat, and broken enemy AI.
