Despite being set in the same universe as Square Enix’s old Front Mission strategy series, Left Alive is ostensibly more of a Metal Gear-styled stealth game with the occasional mech fight. At least, that’s the plan, but for better or worse, today’s fourteen minutes of new footage reminds me most of Alpha Protocol, Obsidian’s endearingly janky spy RPG.
This is interesting news. If anything, it actually makes me want to try Left Alive more now than when I assumed it was some sort of Metal Gear clone.
I’ve never been the biggest fan of Front Mission but I loved Alpha Protocol — despite with its many, many faults.
