Left Alive – The Phantom Pain In The Ass (Jimpressions)

Terrible Metal Gear Solid fanfic should never get this far.

Somehow, Square Enix attached its name to this shambles of a game. A stealth game that desperately wishes Hideo Kojima were involved, this broken, boring, utterly annoying game is totally CAUTION THE ENEMY IS APPROACHING!


  1. The AI is informing the enemy YOU are approaching.

  2. If anyone ever thinks about having a piece of audio play in game constantly/intermittently according to game conditions, as a general rule of thumb you should try just listening to your chosen audio clip on loop for about 15 minutes. If you make it to the end of 15 minutes and you don’t feel murderous, it works. And it’ll be hard to find a good clip, because we evolved to either learn to ignore or loathe things that happen constantly.

  3. That AI is so annoying it’s a wonder alarms haven’t replicated it: “Caution. School is approaching. Caution: Work is approaching. Caution: Midnight snack is approaching.”

  4. Why are we still here? Just to suffer? Every night, I can feel my leg… and my arm… even my fingers. The body I’ve lost… the comrades I’ve lost… won’t stop hurting… It’s like they’re all still there. You feel it, too, don’t you? CAUTION THE ENEMY IS APPROACHING!


  6. Hearing this really hurts my soul. I really wanted this game to provide a positive experience for gamers and be a love letter to MGS fans. 😟

  7. Left Alive is set in the Front Mission universe, which used to be full of great Strategy RPG games. At some point SE decided it would be better financially to follow western game trends and began creating games that felt unsure of what they were. In 2010 they released Front Mission Evolved. Much like Left Alive, it was a 3rd person shooter with a poor mechanics, bland characters, and a bad story. Somehow a series full of identity now has none what so ever.

  8. 2 cursed words of the japanese published games so far:

  9. Sorry, I didn’t catch that, who was approaching?

  10. And yet we can’t get a western Front Mission 5 release? They shat out this and FM Evolve, betraying fans of this strategy RPG franchise. 😟

  11. *Terrible video game*
    Caution. Jim Sterling is approaching.

  12. Shame. I was actually looking forward to this one.

  13. Ganymede, Jupiter III

    *Caution: Metal Gear Flaccid.*

  14. I dont understand why whit the success of Xcom Divinity OS 2 and its own Bravely Default Dragon quest is squenix so allergic to making its originally turn based games acualy turn based games.
    Hell they should have just re used the story from this game for a Turn based xcom style game like how the original Front mission games used to be.
    Why is square so obsessed whit shitty or mediocre at best action games.

  15. Caution the microtransactions are approaching.

  16. Where did you learn to fly?

  17. I give it 0 enemies approaching out of 10

  18. can’t believe I almost bought this before I even saw this video…close one!

  19. Is that Old Snake @ 6:15?

    How subtle lol.

  20. Where did you learn to fly?
